  New Pound Coin
Posted by: dondplayer - 10-01-2017, 07:39 AM - Forum: General - Replies (8)

So on the 15th of this month the old £1 coin is no longer legal tender. I was thinking about what the AWP operators would do regarding the coin mechanisms.
 
A while ago they went round adapting them all to take both old and new £1 coins but would they really go round again to disable the old £1 coin. That is costly so my guess is they’ll only do that if they are going to a machine for another reason anyway. I’m assuming the coin mechanisms don’t keep real time within themselves and hence could have been pre-programmed to stop accepting the old £1 coin on the 15th.
 
Even so they have the issue in both the cash box and the hopper which could contain both coin types anyway. I assume the operators have a grace period for swapping the old coins.
 
Also surely the odd Barcrest 70 that is still around will have to go – can those coin mechs be updated ?

Your comments please
 
A few observations I have made since as far back as August:
 
Two machines in one pub both stating they take old and new £1 coins but in fact don’t take the old ones.
 
A machine in one pub stating it takes old and new £1 coins but in fact don’t take the new ones and if you try a new one then the next coin (regardless of what it is) won’t go in.
 
A machine in one pub that takes both old and new £1 coins but always cash boxes the old ones – presumably to keep the hopper as new coins only. Did see another machine with ‘refill with new £1 coins only’ sticker on it.

  Ladbrokes are scum
Posted by: Boulderdash - 09-29-2017, 05:31 PM - Forum: General - Replies (8)

Ladbrokes is being investigated by the Gambling Commission over an allegation that staff watched a gambling addict take out payday loans to fund hundreds of pounds of bets on fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs).

  Old machines with bad graphics
Posted by: Boulderdash - 09-27-2017, 08:22 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

Was playing Clubwise on the emulator again last night and it occurred to me how awful the design really is.

I know this was the 80s and computer design was limited, but all the fonts are different sizes and the background looks like the bloke got his kid to colour it in!

Anyone else got any classics?

  TIJ touch
Posted by: Boulderdash - 09-25-2017, 02:58 PM - Forum: Betcom/ Gsquared/ Blueprint - Replies (9)

First go on a forcuser for a while and it went for £150 from £75 in. Next board was flashing double deal so I went for the afters. Fortunately only cost about £10 for the board and dealt at £19, for a total raise of £83.

Nice touch. There's life in these old dogs yet.

  Public Enemy no.1
Posted by: kidgloves - 09-24-2017, 07:22 PM - Forum: Clubbers & £500's - Replies (21)

So this is my next project to have out.

Another local club has this, £250 JP.  Game profile seems very like DOND Cop's N Robbers £70 (with Noel in the Judge's wig) where you could trap the Mega....
DOND feature is more like a 'you choose' feature although you don't get to choose - it just offers some random boxes and then gives you an offer....
Was very dead tonight, couldn't get a sniff of action and some curiously placed fag ash between a couple of buttons tells me somebody has been playing before/after hours......
