"The first real Fruit Machine Simulator including: Cash Box, Nudge Box (with Compu-Nudge and Nudge Bank), Skill Climb, Winning Streak, Cash Gamble, Holds and Mega-Holds, Skill Chances and Party Time Meter!"


The object of the game is to win as much money as possible. You are given 1 pound at the start of the game, the rest is up to you!

Light up the CASHBACK letters, by collecting fruits with numbers on them. A FEATURE HOLD will leave them lit for the next spin. A question mark will give you a SKILL or a CHANCE option, to fill up all the letters. Once the letters are all lit, move onto the following special features.

CASHPOT†† -† Money in cashpot is transferred to your credit

WINSPIN†† -† Press "C" when your chosen win appears

CASHSTOP† -† Money is dropped in the cashpot. Gamble or Collect

LASTWIN†† -† Reels with spin onto your previous win


N.B. Not all these features are available on the ELECTRON version.
