Classic fruit machines go under the hammer in Chippenham
The sale was the first of several to dispose of the museum’s former collection, after it closed its doors in November.
At that time, the directors of Yesterday’s World said: “We would like to thank the many visitors who have supported Yesterday’s World in Great Yarmouth.
“We would also like our staff to know how much we genuinely appreciate their support, loyalty and enthusiasm.”
The first sale of the museum’s collection at Chippenham Auction Rooms saw a number of vintage and reproduction slot and fruit machines go under the hammer.
Along with these were other slot machines, including fairground-style amusements like fortune-teller machines and bagatelle games.
Further sales are due to take place in December to dispose of the remainder of the collection, with many of the vintage slot machines already selling for several hundreds of pounds each.
Of course, with slot machine hire, there is no need to pay upfront to get a modern gaming machine for your venue – simply pay a rental fee or agree a revenue-sharing arrangement instead.
