    Fireball poker machine

    Guys I've got the opportunity to buy this machine but I've never seen a poker machine like it before.
    Anyone recall these machines and how they operate, are they purely mechanical?IMG_4136.JPG

    I would say this particular model is a combination of electrical and mechanical, going by the buttons on the front of the machine, rather then the pull type handle the mechanical ones have.

    Buy at your own risk as you will more then likely not find any parts for these

    Keep in mind that regardless of how old they are, these are still illegal to own if they operate (take coins, pay out coins and have locks and keys) Most people are unaware of this

    yer Not legal to own, but many people do, so upto you how you approach it from that point of view,

    If its controlled by boards, boards were often removed by the companies when decommissioned so they become completely useless.
    If its pure mechanical you likely have a better chance of it working. But Its definitely not pure mechanical
    If its an EM machine then you may also have a chance its complete, But Check it out before buying, you wont find parts.



    Likely wouldn't want to pay more than $50 IMO, its not really anything special.
