I've only ever played two iterations of this machine, and they both had weird mushy flippers. I have been assured by another player that this is not universally true with CRs, but there it is.

The design is sleek and uncluttered, without a lot of extraneous artwork, and there's a simple saucer to collect what's on the spinner wheel (which is a ring of lit lights in the lower playfield). The saucer collects the value on the spinner; otherwise it rotates around, although there's a "top spinner" light. If you get a special or an extra ball (which doesn't do any good at all in tournament play, this being a pre-SS game with no alternate settings for points) it's kind of an exciting roulette-type award, but it's a high risk sequence and not a path to a high score.

The playfield has only one shot, really - up the left orbit. You can light a bumper for 1000 points, up to the three bumpers, let the ball rattle around, and try to recover. There isn't a safe shot from the left flipper other than passing (which doesn't work with the mush flippers). There's a right lane shot which is difficult but which doesn't return to the top rollover lanes. All in all, not a great rule set.

The artwork is a bunch of sophisticates at a casino, presumably Monte Carlo, not a tie-in to the 1967 James Bond parody movie, but is kind of meh. The most recent one I played on, at a tournament, had been retrofitted with LEDs and it looked nice and bright, as befitting the casino theme, so I'd recommend that if you are buying one.

It's an unusual game in North America, I don't know how common it is to find in Europe, so worth a play for curiosity but it's not going to be a favorite.

EM machine with SS-component (Roulette feature). Simple layout, simple ruleset, kids love the machine.
