I tell ya, i feared for my feet.
The machine felt so loose and it was impossible to get away with the tilt not going off.

There would have been a contact number on the machine for the operator, did you try calling him?

I always call them now when i see an issue and every single time they are extremely grateful that someone called them. Dont rely on the pub/location to call as i have discovered they hardly ever do.  !@#

I'm pretty sure there wasn't one. Anyway, no doubt it belongs to a member here.

That's an example of why the operators of today have such a bad rep. When I see this sort of crap, I switch the game off and pull the plug. That's the ONLY way operators will fix games - if they are not making money !

It shits you doesn't it. I put $2 in a Scared Stiff at timezone the other week and could barly get the ball out of the shooter lane. The flippers were also rooted, basically no strength left in them and the rubbers had been rotated to within an inch of there life and barely hanging onto the flippers.

There was a heap of other issues as well but the worse thing is kids come along and get there money ripped of them and they walk away thinking jeez I'll stick to the other arcade machines, pinball is shit!

I told the staff (themselves just kids) about the problems with this particular machine and the response was that that's how this machine always is but they'll let someone know. *!@

I played the MM at the burvale Friday.  The legs are now at nearly 45 degrees.  I asked the staff who owned it and the only bloke who could answer said he thought it was Zaks.  There was no phone number.  One more kick to those legs and it will hit the ground.
