The Line Up fruit machine was at the time one of the best performing machines that Barcrest had ever launched, and it would have been something of a surprise if you ever stepped foot into an amusement arcade during the 1980’s and you didn’t find at least one of them flashing away.
That fruit machine was a no nonsense one, however it was launched at the time when the stake and prizes laws were being changed, and as such the original Line Up came with a 10p stake and a £2 token jackpot pay-out, and the Super Line Up version gave players the chance of winning a £3 jackpot for a 10p stake.
As for just what made that fruit machine a magnet for players of all ages, well I suppose one of the most noticeable aspects of the machine was its futuristic looking belly glass which came with a sleek look and one that made the Super Line Up fruity stand out from all others.
The aim of playing the Super Line Up fruit machine was of course to spin in a winning combination on its one single pay-line, and by doing so players would be given the option of collecting their winnings, taking the gamble option or even exchanging their winning pay-out for a set of nudges after the reels had been re-spun.
On the left-hand side of the belly glass there was a bonus board type of layout, and players would progress up that bonus board when numbers that had been added onto certain reel symbols had been spun in.
Landing on any of the cash awards would see players being awarded with them and then being offered the gamble feature or being able to exchange them for nudges, but by landing on any of the nudge positions on that bonus board that would of course see players being awarded with nudges, which they could gamble or exchange for cash.
