#1
Anybody had a machine fuck up for the good ?....i was in teddys ages ago put a quid in machine called teddy bars and it clocked up 97 quid on the bank,thought wtf but as the staff were busy chatting at other end of arcade i pressed collect and it spat 10 quid coins out then bank went back to 97 quid again,as it was refloat day and the 1st person in i knew the hopper was full,managed to get a ton out before member of staff walked down and saw what it was doing and switched it off  lol another occasion and same arcade another 10p machine called crazy cash,playing ok got a few wins but when i pressed collect it spat 5 10p's out then 10 one pound coins did this everytime i pressed collect,managed to empty pound coin hopper with money still left to pay in the bank so staff member refloated it and said ther ya go and walked off,pressed collect again and did the same thing  GTFIT carried on playing and managed to get 190 quid out in nuggets and 10p's before it emptied again with £14 left in bank,attendant came over and open up machine and was puzzled to noticed why there was no money in the 10p hopper either,she payed me my £14 and turned it off and said summets not right here...no shit i thought  lol,i then decided to  GATW to the pub for a few free  drinking

Years ago in my local arcade there was a change machine where you could change £1 coin into 10 pences.  One day I used it and it spat out 7 x 10 pence and 3 pound coins.  Probably the only machine I ended up winning on lol

There was a notey down this way that was fucked, used to clock up credit and spit the note back out, £10 only though

A player found it out and kept it quiet.. To this day I don't know where it was

I had a change machine that gave £60 £1 coins for a £20 note. Staff spotted it quite quick but did manage all my £20s in my wallet. It's the location that made it sweet. Certain arcade in sunny hunny ;)

Also a slotto that paid out £1s instead of 10ps. Was like that for ages too!

Very similar in felixstowe. Change machine was spitting out 20 pound coins for every £10 note. I only had a few on me so went to the bank and withdrew £450 in tenners. Managed to change £160 more notes before staff got suspicious and I decided to leave before they came over!!

Also had a reflex snakes and ladders lep clone that when you put the quid in it used to clock the credits on and fall straight through to the pay out tray

Some tasty results there especially the £1 in for £10 out, I remember an old skool machine. Early 90's used to put a quid in, it rejected it but still gave the 10 credits

Also had a Cadbury claw+pusher machine, that thought a 2p was a 2 pound coin.

Got a lot of chocolate that week

The snack machine at work gave free milky bar chunkies so long as you put money in. Refilled three days running until it was spotted.
