Which machines had the best sound effects and soundtrack?

Posted (edited)

After watching a Reel Fruits video recently I was listening for all of the little sound bytes from all the machines playing in the background. Rollercoaster, Indiana Jones, Viva Espania, Hyper Viper to mention a few but when I think back to the days when my Dad ran a pub the two that stuck out for me were Monty Python and Eastenders Round the Square. Excellent soundboards and the music was great too.

Nothing specifically comes to mind, but the best sound for me was the coins hitting the the tray after a win

I can’t remember ever seeing one of these machines. Were there any clones of them?

One phrase you used to hear in every arcade was.....Okey Dokey, Roll Em!!! I remember a lot of the Barcrest machines sampled a lot of different quotes from tv or movies.

The pub around the corner used to have an Indiana Jones machine that was so loud all you could hear were the various phrases echoing around the place....”I’ve got something for you” or “I told you it would be alright.” If you were lucky it was “fortune and glory kid, fortune and glory.” Great days. Much better than hearing....Aw how do you feel...from the endless DOND clones!

Used to love rinsing this machine back in the day. Used to pay for my night out. Going for the 3-2-1 bars off Golden Hold. Used to do well on Party Animal too.

Yep there were 2 emptiers, first was nudging in the horse shoes and filling the matrix, but they changed the program so you couldn't do that any more. The other emptier like you said was getting round to golden hold on the nudges side and shuffling the barcode in. Then the 3rd program came along and basically didn't give you a single hi-lo win until it was ready to pay.

Party Animal and Adams Family were decent - 231 bar code for jp.

I can remember hitting a big streak on Golden Game in an arcade once and of course it was so loud that everybody was watching as it slowly got me to £100 plus. IT’S GOLDEN GAME TIME!!! The loudest machine in the whole place. 🎰🎰🎰

The machines from the 90’s and early 2000’s are by far the most enjoyable and playable machines. There are a few retro places around though unfortunately for me they are all down south. 🙁

Two machines stick in my head.

Pie Factory and that tune when you get the feature. And the french quotes which I never really understood what he was saying but it make me smile.

And Simpsons duff beer. Almost every quote in that one sticks in my mind.

It's weird how engrained some of those fruity sounds are.

@Rocknrolla how about a mini name that tune for fruit machines game during your stream? Use something like kahoot.it so we can all take part in real time. 🙂

The Mob from MDM easily has the best soundtrack and sound effects!

Excalibur from MDM has to be up there as well, they stole voice clips off Sean Connery from the film Dragon! 

Italian Job is cool obviously just because of Micheal Caine.

Would love to have space to buy these!

Would love to buy a couple of the old classics but space is the issue.....unless my Son moves out.....so I am never getting my machines. 😉
