Can I collect the fruit machine myself?
You are welcome to collect from our depot. We are available for collection Monday - Thursday 10am / 3pm.
Please make sure your vehicle is suitable. Ideally the fruit machines are best stood up but will lay down if neccessary. They will not fit on a roofrack or hang out the boot of a hatchback.
Is the fruit machine easy to set up once I receive it?
Yes they are simply a matter of plug in and play.You should "float" the fruit machine up with pound coins,the amount dependant on what fruit machine ie.£250 jackpot machine - £350 float. / £25 jackpot machine - £125 float.
This isn't really necessary though because you can play the fruit machine using pound coins and just don't win for a few days. You will be suprised at how quickly the float will build up.
