There hasnt been a meet in ages, because of numerous reasons in my opinion.

1 - Machines

The current state of machines, shows the decline of what we are all here for - the love of the game, and to make money. A lot of people have dropped out of the game due to how shit things have gotten.

2 - Distance / Locations

I think another major factor is that people simply cannot be arsed to travel long distances, at great expense, to play things like Popeye. I also feel that trust between members has dwindled away massively. For example - if we had a meet in say Leeds again, and there were loads of playables - I think backs would be stabbed and people would start playing in other peoples areas. Times are hard in this game now, and so I feel this is also a factor.

Steelfix was the main person to arrange meets - and did a bloody good job of it in all honesty. Someone commented about the "social" aspect of the meets - and originally I would agree that the social aspect was fantastic - however there have been numerous moments  which "social" was most certainly not the case for being there. Key Key The One was on his stag do in Blackpool - and he was in the Beerkeller above Coral Island I think it was - and it was suggested that we go have a pint with him. You know....socialize.... however a few people didnt want to do this and carried on punting, which pissed off a few members - what harm would having a pint have. None.

Steelfix organised a private meet between a few of his closest friends from here, and a number of people spat their dummies out moaning about not being invited. It wasnt even a Jackpotty meet - so I dont get the issue.

If meets and social gatherings were such a big issue - then why didnt someone just simply organise one.

3 - Attitudes

People change with time. Conflicts happen. Not everyone will see eye to eye. This is proved recently on here. What I dont understand is that if people think the end of Jackpotty is here - then stop fucking posting.

4 - Trolling / Backstabbing

It has become obvious that Jackpotty has been getting slagged off privately between "friends". Rather than hide behind each other, why dont you post your issues on here - and try to resolve them, rather than wanting the place to go - thats a huge disrespect to the efforts and hard work moderating that has gone in from Slasher, Gambo and Peko.

Personally, I have made some fantastic friends from here - and I am glad to have them as part of my daily life. They are people who I could go on the piss with, go on marathon punts, go to the football, etc - and not just gamble friends. In fact - a number of members / ex members from here I stay in touch with, and dont even gamble half of the time when we meet up.

If you feel that the end is near - or simply just want to reply to people to wind them up for shits and giggles, then just close the door on the your way out. If you want to be constructive, contribute usefully and actually show people and the place some respect, then stay.

The choice is indeed yours.

Well anyway. Your all cunts. 

Good Evening.

Nixxy even went and ruined any excitement in the casino part of the meets by going and winning £7.5k on Dolphin Pearl not much chance of beating that to be honest! Don't even think all the Vegas meets have yet to yield a bigger win than that but I'm probably wrong lolol

To long to quote, but great post pilsbury. I totally understand how I act on here and maybe I should reign it in, but then I wouldn't be me. The same face you see here is the same one you'd see in real life. I haven't got 2.
The future is much like the present, only longer.

It's got to mainly be the machines surely? If I was 10 years younger and went through pub age/uni again I doubt I'd have got hooked on machines the way I did. I'd have lost the odd tenner and thought this is a bit shit and that'd have been that.

The London meet last year was alright but very few machines were actually played. We went to many pubs where no one played anything at all. Gone are the days where you can cob win Stepper first board or get a cheap deal game for £70 on a fair but not really considered playable machine.

It's a forum about fruit machines at the end of the day. Older members have lives and will move on as will happen with anything. The current state of the industry isn't pulling new people in.

Essentially when 15 gamblers meet and are in a wetherspoons with 5 machines and not a penny goes in any of them you know something is wrong.

We might be short on posts on the forum but your's we certainly can do without. Come back when you can talk to people like human beings and not act like  12 year old.

This is essentially the reason, Fruit-emu used to be buzzing when I 1st joined, but when they'd created everything they could (End of £25 JP days) the place started to die because there was nothing much to post about, now look at it with the new MFME 5 it's buzzing again.

Sadly I can't see AWP's making a similar break through.

Yeh it's just due to the lack of things to talk about machine wise.

Every new game is a Timmy forcer or a rigged deal game bfm/qps. Nothing worth talking about on either off those!

I think the 2008 recession had some involvement with the fruity industry as well, and now we're entering another recession.  I'm saying this because I'm also a member of a theme park bulletin board and the members on there aren't going out to theme parks as often as they used to, being strapped for cash.  Then any members left over from that board seemed to have got sucked up by Facebook.

I guess the Jackpotty trolls / banned users end up on Facebook as well?

Also, could there be competition from other fruity related boards?  I started out on Fruit Chat, then a year later jumped ship to Jackpotty as that's more geared towards casuals which was the better place for me.  I'm also on Fruit-Emu for the emulation scene but hardly ever post there.  I also know about the MPU Mecca, haven't visited that yet.
