    Help With Article for Vice Media

    Hey!

    I'm a journalist based in Birmingham and London depending on the weekend. I'm looking to write an article for Vice UK (media pack for Vice is here if you don't know it - https://upload-assets.vice.com/files...compressed.pdf) about fruit machines to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first video fruit machine (Fortune Co., 1986).

    I'm aiming to basically do a pub crawl with someone fun who is an expert in fruit machines - thinking we'd go round a few pubs in either London/Birmingham and play different fruit machines. If the piece gets commissioned I'd be given a budget to play with I imagine.

    Anyone interested?

    Cheers,

    Kyle

    I remember playing an ACE Sidewinder video fruit with four reels in the early eighties. You could swap reels, say two and three to,achieve wins.

    Also, screen test, was an early video which mixed film questions with fruit machine play.

    Try also YouTube. Search " Castle video fruit machines " Cashbolt, Revolution, Crackerpot.
