They have a deal or no deal one in the pub we goto on a Thursday for the quiz. As I dont drink (driving) I usually stick £5 in if no one else is on. Won the jackpot (£100) 2 weeks in a row. Got £50 last week tooLove a bit Deal or No Deal on a bandit. Until the £100 goes and Noel is looking down on you with that fucking smirk on his face
Are you sure it was your "mate"?Used to work on the sites with a lad who was bad on them like. He genuinely saw them as a way of making more money. His lass eventually stopped him bringing his bank card to work on a Friday when our wages went in and gave him £20 pocket money for the afternoon on the drink after our early Friday finish. He'd nearly always buy one pint and put the rest in the bandit, sometimes win, mostly lose and end up borrowing off the lads and paying them back on monday. Total mugs game. He would go to the bookies or nearest bar or amusements on his dinner to play the bandits. Terrible addiction really

Did you buy him a pasty anarl?Years ago I bumped into a lad in the town who i’d last saw around an hour earlier in wearside college. He was muttering to himself and was going on fucking weird. I asked if he was ok, he said not really i’ve just blew my wages on the bandits. It was payday.
He was shaking like a shitting dog, I dunno if that was off the fear due to losing the money or withdrawal symptoms because he couldn’t play them for another week but it was fucking grim. I gave him his bus fare home and made sure the twat got on rather that bolting straight back to nobles or wherever.
Awful fucking things.
Loved a good quiz machine, though the amount of skill was debatable. You just knew when it wasnt going to give you anything when it asked you questions like "what is the population of Vienna" or "what is celine dions birthday".They used to be so easy in the 80s. Only feature was nudges and wins over £3 in tokens. Occasionally put a £1 in the machine if I’m waiting in the pub, but no more as they are to complicated.
Quiz machines were more fun, as you felt there was an element of skill and knowledge.
They'll be a thing of the past in less than a year. Maximum stake has been reduced from £100 to £2 in recent weeks - it'll be the beginning of the end for high street bookmakers.Cheers pal. I'd have never have guessed that so don't feel so thick for asking.
I never play them for money but I've played through the online Aliens one and it was quite good. You can play them for free as well.Never played one. Wouldn’t know what to do.
