Project's Chico The Bandit, originally released on a £6 jackpot, running here with slightly later £8 ROMs as the original £6 ROMs have to date, not been found.

Certainly on the £6 version if it was exchanging all the way down to melons(showing value) then it was a genuine skill stop when you got the jail feature. It wasn’t a random stop as you said at the start. If there was no value it would slip off the decent ones. Altho it didn’t stop straight away as most skill stops did it would just rotate round once and land where you hit it.

This was a great machine for turning ur tokens into cash as once happy taking the £3 repeat win didn’t seem to stop it from exchanging all the way down if constantly playing with tokens.

It’s like it needed to pay the jackpot to go dead. Had a few of these in pubs which I always use to use my various tokens in from various arcades as the mech pretty much took any kind of tokens grooved or not.

Once I’d had the cash out could then take a couple of jackpots to leave with. Wait for cash to go back in and repeat.

Theg didn’t really streak tho, you were probably getting the odd decent gold rush which was value held over.

Project did some great hi tecs back in the day.

They’re balls of Steele and Marvin Flair were two of the greatest AWP’s ever made IMO. £15 cash jackpots if I remember. Amazing games. I actually bought a balls of Steele back in the good old days. Had a banging soundtrack.

Cheers PMK interesting stuff :) I've had a few people leave comments on the video echoing much of what you said there.

I played these back in my clueless addict days so didn't know anything about them in terms of tricks or strategy, I just remember them seeming to give me a fairer game than a lot of other stuff that was around at the time.

I'll give the things you've suggested there, and also the stuff that was left in the comments, and revisit the machine - it might be worth a follow-on video demonstrating optimal strategy :)

I absolutely love these old AWPs, I've played Chico The Bandit for a slightly embarrassing amount of time over the last few days :D (Certainly cheaper than playing at online casinos!)

It was a decent machine tbf. I’m not suggesting you could get more cash out than the tokens you put in but you got a great return and as I said unless you got a run of repeats it didn’t seem to kill it wanting to give you the jackpot as a true skill stop when in jail. Thus allowing entrance to jail on the majority of boards and not blocking the £3 repeater.

I’d love to have a crack on balls of Steele again but it’s difficult to even find a pic of so I presume on the emulation side I’m clutching at straws?

Do you ever remember seeing one?

Ignore me, being silly. I though it was a video from the past week but it's 2 months old :oops:

OK cool glad the mystery is solved :)

The channel is very searchable (especially for the fruit machine emulation stuff), so just type of the name of the machine you're looking for into the channel's search bar and it'll return good results. I went through every video on the channel last year and made sure every video was searchable by machine name, and I've kept that up ever since.

Three UK AWPs featured in this video.

Apologies for the relative lack of online slots stuff recently, I'm doing the vast majority of my play at 3Dice these days and I've covered every single slot they have in previous videos.

I am keeping an eye on new releases over at Unibet but honestly, I don't think I've ever been as bored as I am now with the online slots landscape, and very few games are leaping out at to me to play with real funds, add in the widespread gimping of RTPs, insane volatility profiles and near total lack of bonus offers - and I'm just not motivated much to deposit and play, and thus by extension make slots videos!

Excruciating watch. Like someone trying to clean the M25 with a toothbrush. It sums up the AWP players of old in one video. Witnessing people smiling and puffed with relief when getting 70% of their session losses back in the streak, the fear of leaving it 'happy' for another player removing all financial rationale from the incumbent player.

I really think I'd hit some sort of bug in the code there, it was hard blocking the red £100 at the end of the trail but desperate to pay back off a normal feature board, hence £150, £100 and £50 being awarded in quick succession.

Compensated machines are an opaque, dodgy business IMO, if they're not vulnerable to some sort of exploitation or manipulation, they do straight-up stupid shit like that which makes no sense.
