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.

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.
