Do you think the chair they are also selling makes a belching sound when you sit on it?

It is good we all have different tastes otherwise we would all want the same thing. I think this is quite stylish, very much the period and nice hardware features on the front. It is a lot nicer than the similar type machine the Brenco Wheel of Fortune.... Only wish I had the space.. :#:

Treefrog, interesting that you think it's nicer than the Brenco Wheel of Fortune - because (in answer to your original question) Match a Fruit is also a Brenco machine. Dates from a couple of years after Wheel of Fortune (1966). I agree, very stylish - very '60s. Doesn't seem to have any interest yet..........go on, you know you want it.

So Tree-frog, did you buy it? Don't keep us in suspense now! A lovely looking machine in my books but then I remember those machines with fondness.

Happy May 1st! %|%

Were these as predicitble in their play sequence as the Wheel of Fortune? I used to regularly empty the Wheel of Fortune in the arcades as we always roughly knew where the pointer would land, based on the delay of its start speed. On some Wheel of Fortunes, 6 would always follow 'Lose', for example. Interesting on this machine that there are 2 oranges, 2 melons and 2 bells, yet the payouts are 6, 8 and 10. So why bother with the oranges and melons, as the odds aren't good? I suppose this was set this way to make spread betting not so attractive.

How ever much I was tempted, I managed to prevent the heart leading the mind. Been trying to do this a few times on machines recently, but failed........Wish I had a nice big games room as half of it would be fitted with machines like this...

It is a tad on the large size and probably one of those purchases that if forced to get rid off under pressure from the female house management you would find hard pushed to resell.
