I have the opportunity to buy the following machines

- Monopoly
- Sopranos

What I want to know is which one is the better machine and how much should I be paying maximum (euros).

Any help would be appreciated.

This is a choice you have to make based on how you like the pin theme,and game play!! I personally prefer "Sopranos" due to game play and theme! I cannot gauge cost in euros,however $3500.would be a general idea for a perfect players pin here!! Good luck!!

Sopranos is a more fast/classic fan layout by George Gomez...has a similar feeling to Monster Bash or LOTR. The gangster theme is fun and funny. Monopoly is a unique Pat Lawlor game, a bit slower and methodical to go with the board game theme. I’d give the nod to Sopranos, but they’re both relatively equal Whitestar machines.

Neither for me. Buying a game is a personal experience. Play everything that you can and buy what you like playing. It is very hard making a decision based on playing a single game. Watch youtube videos of them both to see if you even would want to go look at them in person.

Thanks for the replies.

I am going to look at them both tomorrow and have a play about with them. The sopranos is in mint condition (apparently) and I can get it for $2750 so could be a steal.

I like them both but Sopranos better. At 2750 who cares load it up

Sopranos over Monopoly. Had them Both. Better Play, Callouts, and the safe beats the short loop back.

I wouldn’t buy any pin without playing it first. That’s my advice, put some time on any possible purchase. The $2750 sopranos does seem like a good deal, definitely check it out

$2,750 for a nice sopranos is the deal of the year. Get it.

just picked up my sopranos today for around $2750.

I have changed the dip switch settings for UK language but the machine is still in spanish?

how do i change the language please?

The dips change coinage only.

To change language, you need to burn new English roms. Download the USA ones from here.


If you can’t burn them, you can purchase them from vendors online.
