Had a scoot round some pubs today for interests sake, basically you've got loads of these betcom clones, loads of rubbish new deals like decade/maximum/queen I want it all etc, qps payback/monopoly and I found a couple of dead powerplays!

How the fuck do people make a living of pub machines these days!!!!!

I ran into a player not long before Xmas (first time I'd seen him in months) who used to play pub machines more or less exclusively - he still plays them but now he's checking things twice a day in the hope a random casual pumper has done his balls on something plus he's on bookies stuff.

He admitted to me that it is really tough now and he's not normally the kind to admit he's having trouble - also he said you get players from 30+ miles away all dropping in daily to check triples, powerplays, etc where as at one time they would only turn up occasionally.

Oh and I've had the misfortune of a Powerplay turning up not far from me - which means I'll be checking it now and again (along with every other player within 30 miles) and no doubt will get involved at some point lol

Powerplay is only really worthwhile if it's in the middle of nowhere, if it's town centre it gets taken on and checked so often the chance it's not on its Arse is so low it doesn't merit either

A) the time to go to it or
B) the money to check it as long run you'll be down if it's 9/10 dead or more

The other old playables are pretty much gone, well maybe not in shitholes and the very odd spoons one

You are quite right I won't be checking it in that way - there are certain times when a casual is likely to play it (I won't elaborate on here) but as you say it's rare they will put enough in to wake it up again - but if and when they do I may well be waiting lol

i make sure i pop a few buttons each day now. so annoying to see the manus getting away with so much shit. v i p - 10 and streak left - 12! it's not just what they are doing, it's how they are doing it? they might as well have it come up in the display "i'll offer you fuck all, i don't have to. give me your money and fuck off!" "you can't win, who cares you cunt!"

You'd prefer it if they did do that. I've always said on pointless bonuses or what have just have a 'fuck you' square. It'd be a lot more apt and up front.

They do have a fuck you square. It's called "LOSE" and there's a magnet behind it, sure does love to land on it!  :D

Saw a pub today which now has two of them!
Got to a double dond endgame with two £1 and two £25s!
First time ever on an endgame this has happened. Usually its the amount in the 'box' and two different numbers no?
Really annoyed me. Obviously I gambled on and obviously the bastard had the £1 in the box. Horrible horrible horrible.

Same on both sides is fair enough really. Assuming random eliminations (yeah right) there's a 1/15 chance you'll be left with the same on both panels.
