1950’s Oliver Whales ‘Win a Spangles’ Allwin Machine.

Oliver Whales ‘Win a Spangles’ Allwin Machine c.1950. The term “Allwin” is the generic term for this kind of slot machine, originating from the fact that on most machines all of the cups are winners. Whales manufactured a large range of (almost exclusively) Allwins featuring bright plastic graphics on their playfields.

Presented in excellent original condition and in full working order, the machine receives coins, deploys the ball bearing, and dispenses the reward correctly. Includes a selection of period coins for operation and a set of original keys.

Dimensions: width 20″, depth 7″, height 31½”.
