I see from this article that there's a Panorama programme about gambling addiction tonight. Might give it a watch even though I'm not sure it'll tell me anything new, although it could reinforce the need to stay the hell away from gambling.

155. :) Feels like longer, but at least it's still ticking along nicely. These days, my weekends fly by so quickly that I'd resent losing any time to gambling, so with that and the various blocks I've got in place are keeping me good.

Well done for sticking at it. :)

A machine from 1981 (!) running on the doddery old MPU2 tech.

It runs on three ROMs that are 2KB in size each.

It's awful.

You realise that without the coin sounds and payout that it's the most basic crap ever. There's not even any way to know how many credits you have apart from looking at the meters.

I've never been so bored in my life. It needs sounds or its just like playing with a still picture.

I'll watch this one later but my local arcade had a few of these MPU2 machines - the one I remember the most was triple chance which I'm sure was just a conversion kit for highlights and the other barcrest at the time which was the forerunner to .... exchanges unlimited ?

They all had the buttons on the side which was akward for a place that stacked the machines next to each other both sides were 'start' and one side was also gamble / the other collect.

So that Roshtein video went a bit nuts (by my humble standards), over 15,000 views (and counting), 346 comments (and climbing), 221 likes and 77 dislikes.

Here's my attempt to put the whole thing to bed so I can go back to making my uncontroversial fruit machine emulation videos.

That Mr P. Is that the one that's about 100ft from my flat in Bognor? I recall reading about it a while ago and realised it was literally on my doorstep.

If it is I may be able to either get some pics of it or getting some pics for Pook or something.

Do some poking A. If it is I don't mind going with an assortment of cameras.

Ed in. Yes I think it is, so I've broken cover and offered to go and get the pics.

Were there many other machines with a triangular board? Although I've not played Sinbad, it reminds me of another machine, but I'm not sure which.


Also, yesterday I passed the six-month mark of no gambling.. steady progress :)

'cannon' might have given better results but I think Giphy did well there. :)

Thank you both.. it's nice to be able to think straight and not be skint. Oddly, I think Brexit has been a factor - I want to make sure I'm debt-free (2 and a bit years) in case Brexit starts screwing things up for me.

Finally we've got a positive message to put on the side of the Brexit bus that isn't a total lie!

Congrats on keeping clean devilman :)

Something a little bit different for this one, from back when you could play Space Invaders for a £20 cash jackpot in 1991!

Old fruit machine that by no accounts hardly anyone ever saw a real one of, raised from the dead thanks to emulation and a grainy old flyer.

(I loved me some fruit machines, and I never saw one of these, plus it's unique in that it's a Maygay M1a/b tech machine that uses a dot matrix display.)

Yeah, a lot of them have tells, especially if you got to the feature board. I recall that the Simpson's machine turned Homer red, and you couldn't die.

That's an invincible board, generally referred to as a 'red board'. I'd say about 99% of players know about that though :D

There was a way to manipulate the red boards on The Simpsons (which was actually a clone of a machine called The Great Escape), as the machine maintained two cashpots in the code (a normal pay pot and a streak pot), so you played it until it offered a red board, and then deliberately DIDN'T take the jackpot, instead just collecting £2 or £3 from the board.

I wrote the following words about ten - fifteen years ago:
Little Me wrote:
INVINCIBLE MODE
The Invincible mode is shown when the Homers Meltdown logo turns RED. Proceed around the board for the Super Jackpot!
As with the Simpsons and the Great Escape, some players still prefer to turn down the RED mode (collect a low win - £2?), and keep playing until they hit a normal feature, then twat it for £30+

Spook!


Finally got round to making the video about these, complete with demonstration in the emulator.

BBC article about gambling and gaming. Although the article refers to gaming in a general sense initially, it expands into loot box discussion, which makes more sense, as I doubt gaming in itself leads many into gambling.

Culturally I think there are religions that warn against any form of gaming where ‘chance’ takes a role as it is related to gambling.

I guess if it depends whether the ‘gamble’ is considered to be for monetary/material game, or if the desire/drive to gamble can be developed from taking risks in chance games where there is no material prize above a sense of victory?
