Condition: Used - shows wear, needs some work
I purchased this unique cocktail pinball machine back in 2015. It's a very early solid state so there's that unique blend of boards for the electronics and chimes for the sounds.
The game does boot and play but it needs some work. It didn't boot when I bought it but I traced the problem to a board issue and sent the board out to John's Jukes in Canada who specializes in Allied Leisure games. He repaired the board and now it boots fine. I haven't touched the game since I moved two years ago so I figured it's time to pass it on to someone else who will finish repairing her.
I replaced the original (1978) power supply with a new power supply that John recommended.
Many of the incandescent bulbs were out so I went through and replaced all of them with LED's. Some aren't working right so the new owner will want to address that at some point. I'm not sure if a different type of LED is needed or if this machine just won't take LED's.
There are two score displays on this game and one of them isn't working right.
Some of the switches aren't working. I haven't looked at them so not sure if the fix is an easy one or not.
One of the drop targets is broken (pictured) and when I last looked into it (in 2015) there wasn't a repro yet but John said he was working on one back then and I haven't asked him if he finished it or not.
The playfield is worn in some areas (pictured).
The person I bought the machine from bought it from someone that said it was a home use only machine. There's no documentation to prove that though.
I have a little over $500 in the game so I've priced it to just recoup some of my money.
I have no problem shipping the game if the buyer handles all of the details. It's a very unique piece. I can't imagine there being that many in existence, especially now that the game is 40 years old.
