    Default Pumpkin King

    Has anyone played Pumpkin King? Looking to find out what kind of "fun factor" it has. Looks cool and the videos on YouTube seem interesting but I'm interested in any fisrt hand experience here. I have a local seller that I'll be getting with in the near future.

    He says it runs fine, just dirty. I plan to check it out for all the usual functions and to run balls thru it.

    Thanks for any input,
    Pete

    There used to be a member here that would put theirs in the window every Halloween!!

    Default Pumpkin King

    I played it briefly when luckymoey was selling off his massive collection several years ago; ended up getting his Penguin arepachi and several other older hanemonos, and some Lumina cells.

    I liked it though; as I recall he wanted a bit much for it, good reaches for a non-lcd screen machine. Id buy it if the price was right.

    I picked this up the other day for a fair price. Been cleaning it up and all seems pretty good other than the payout system needing further attention. Added volume pots and a working lock as well.

    The actual machine is called CRパンプキングF / CR Pumpkin F from February 2003. The "F" in the series has a Jackpot probability of
    1 / 359.5 High probability 1 / 59.9. https://www.p-world.co.jp/machine/database/2495

    Anybody ever see an option of multiple play modes on the 2000 era machines? There are two DIP switches that can be set to reflect four different modes. Not sure what's up with that, will leave it on "normal" mode for now.

    I have a Twin Tales machine that is in the same frame. It has the same switches.
