Stupid things you have seen a fruit machine do
#1
I think the list of 'stupid things you've done on fruit machines' would be inundated with 'I screwed up a skill shot for jackpot etc', 'declined a cashpot offer as I hastily bashed no deal no deal no deal' (a good friend of mine shall remain nameless having made this error plenty of times), I want to hear the stupidest thing you've seen a fruit do.

Trap itself purely accidentally, made the occasional dodgy move.

Back in the £25 era, I remember going hi on a 1, only for it to roll 1 again and it said game over. I think the machines in question were those Barcrest hi-lo type games like Horn of Plenty, Gimme Gimme Gimme, Bling King Crazy etc.

Also, Quick on the Draw (Vivid) had a habit of rolling 11 on your first move, right onto the game over square!

I believe he decided on a quick go on the other machine before closing time, after last orders, and it awarded the jackpot first or second board.
PLUS EEVEE!!!!!

Epic video, seen it before but you couldn't time that any better.

I once spun away from a jackpot offer on super shots of East Wing West Wing £70 as I was playing too quickly. Cash meter went up to £20 and it was giving super deal. Oh well I thought, it's a jackpot board, it'll land elsewhere. Nope. Killed me and didn't come back.

Other strange happenings on these types of machine, I've had an Access All Alexes just naturally land up mega step to nearest which was jackpot. Naturally I took it but I did think how unBellfruitish it was to do that. It killed off deal as well.
They can also get in a strange mood with the bust whereby the message can't be 'cash or bust will be bust'. In fact every bust you press is something roughly equivalent to the board value.

BWB Volcano has a hidden IM as well as board entry. The board will only roll a 2, and you fill up the pots, on the question mark you get Extra Life.

Which would all be good, except for the fact that, the first 2 rolls you onto Lose.

Offering the cashpot on a DOND game then not having the cashpot as a final two. Bloody cheek.

The pot in question was £55.80 so I thought I was pretty much guaranteed it at the end, nope, last boxes were £6 or £100.

That's perfectly normal...

Early red IM machines I've actually had a IM board and the machines spun the reel to lose!! Probably had a add again to land on lose.
Very rare but three time hold on "X,s" for a pound on party time costng you 90p so 10p up lol or even worse the same hold on double decker this time costing £1.50 p for a quid.
Reels spin in jackpot but doesn't give/pay it.

I've had a Adams family go higher than a 11 on a flashing board kill me. Was a bit like.... Okay
I own up to being the one that's declined a cash pot for Sebastian on a deal game


When I collected my £1.40 bank on a body match and it dumped a full float on me haha

And when a stir crazy just every board on £5 was invincible / going to the end and repeating to £30+ Emptied

When a deadish Gold mine (dream factory clone) got itself in a pickle and we trapped it for a mega streak off the shots decided to lock up and freeze because it realised its mistake...

I've heard of many stories of being on a 1 and for jackpot going higher and it goes to a 1 and kills you


My mate was also forcing out a fiddle a fortune (reflex) and was going higher and lower on some 1s and 12s on the board and that was also killing him. I don't know what made him force it in the first place.

I once witnessed a fruit NOT give OB a profit.

Without doubt the strangest thing I've ever seen.

It was OK in the end of course, he walked into a bookies out of frustration and made a bag on some random shit.

that is the sickest story i have ever heard PMK, obviously wasn't a random 500+

it was prob on a powerplay after someone had just had both repeats out of it, 100 in for £50 off red reels and then button lit 20 later and "took the piss" and cost 25 for a "disgusting 92 offer"!

What is not perfectly normal is declining a £70 / £70 offer on Viva Las Vegas or whatever the fuck it was called to win ten pounds

I suspect the number reel on the reflex was out of line if it was doing that as going lower than a 12 cannot kill on that particular machine.
