It doesn't look anything like the machine I played it on, it looks more like a pinball machine o.o Could be though... At first I thought it was a pic of Ray on the side, but it's just a Golden pic of Sonic... oh well. :P

I've heard of this but I don't know where I heard it from because it's been so long (POSSIBLY Sonic Gear). That gold coin motif on the side of the machine jogged my memory because of it's distinctness as well as laughable blue arms Sonic.

It is a machine that has a wide 'belt' inside it with various things printed on the belt. The 'belt' moves and I think you flip coins onto certain prizes printed on the belt or into holes on the belt. There's other arcade machines of this type but for all the arcades i've been in, they're not a common machine.

EDIT: Good description on this page. I was close but it seems a pinball-like machine too.

The one I'm most interested in is the Sonic and Tails Spinner (on page 2 of Verte's link). They had one at SEGAWorld in the London Trocadero, but alas it disappeared shortly after SEGAWorld became FunLand and a lot of the SEGA machines were replaced by other games.

I did ask around and even wrote to the game manager about where it had gone, but didn't get anywhere. I would have willingly bought it from them. One of the few things I really want to add to my Sonic collection that I don't (yet) have is an arcade machine. Preferably that one.

There's a Sonic-themed arcade... machine... thing... at one of my local "fun places." (Honestly have no clue what to call them.) I can't remember what it does, but I think it's just pinball.

I've seen one recently it was either at the Troc or at Gameworks Cincinatti.

I checked out the Troc top to bottom last time I was there and even asked the staff. If they've put it back, I will have to go there again and attempt to bargain with them o.o I guess I'll have to look into Gameworks, too. Whoo!

I remember playing this. It's just a simple coin roll game. Too bad the place that had it has been destroyed for over 3 years.

Probably why it's on ebay. cant find a home for it now.

I remember playing some type of Sonic arcade game when I was younger.

All it was was a roulette type kind of game where if your spinner landed on a certain spot, you'd get a certain amount of tickets.

Heh, I remember playing that all the time at this one arcade nearby. Actually, I think they might still have it there.

Anyway, it's nothing to get too excited about. You just put in a quarter (or token or whatever) and you get tickets depending on where it lands. Oh, and it will randomly play the Sonic 3 title screen music, which is pretty cool.

Ahh, I want iiiit! I don't have $950 right now though ;_; I came across this arcade game over a year ago, so it's been on ebay quite a while. Even if the price was lower I still wouldn't be able to have it as I have no room for it =[ Oh well, I still have my Sonic fruit machine and to me that's just as good :]
