Collectibles-General (Antiques)/Jubilee mk12 slot machine


QUESTION: Hi, I have been given this machine, but know nothing about it. It works fine and the 20 cent coin tube is full! How do I empty the coin tube and what do I need to do to get the machine to work without coins or with just one coin? Is there a users manual available? Many thanks best regards John.

ANSWER: Hi John,

I don't know this machine or what it looks like, I do have some Aristocrat jubilee manuals listed at:
but nothing reads mark 12. Maybe if I could see a photo of you machine and also one of the inside I could see if one of these manuals might work for you. If you can send photo's please do, send them to:

Thank You

Thank you for your reply but you answered a question about this particular machine about 3yrs ago and the answer and photo is still on your site.  Our machine is exactly the same as the one you answered the question about previously for someone else and there is also a photo of it. You valued the machine at the time between 600 and 800 dollars and the machine was Australian over in Canada.  So if you could go into your site and have a look at the machine and then maybe you could answer our previous question.
Thank you and look forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards
John Newby

Hi John,

Thanks for pointing this out to me and I did go look at it, I wish there was a photo of the inside of the thing but there is not. I wish I had a manual on this but I don't, and in the photo I can't tell if this is an electro/mechanical machine or an electronic machine, with a coin hopper or a coin slicer, so I can even guess how to empty the tube? But, if it has a tube it must use a coin slicer for payouts and if so you may be able to manually move the coin slicer at the bottom of the tube by hand, in an out to clear out the tube of coins. I'll keep looking for a MK 12 manual for this machine.

Thank You

I am an expert on old coin operated machines, slot machines, trade stimulator's, jukeboxes, old arcade machines, etc. I have been identifying these for people who respond to my web site listed below, for a few years now. In almost all cases I am able to tell them about their old coin operated machines, the year, the value, and other general information about their machines. I do not know much about soda vending machines, coin banks, or scales, but I will try to help you with these if I can. Please email photo's to: My web site is at:


I bought my first slot machine, a .50 Cent Mills Black Cherry in 1969 and have been hooked from that time, I still have that Slot machine! Before that I found a open barrel full of old scraped jukebox wall boxes behind a restaurant, I wanted them all but never took a one of them. Anything that took a coin drove me nuts!

C.O.C.A. and other slot and coin operated machine groups, associations, groups, and clubs.

Many, the Coinslot magazine, always juken, Coin Slot Journal, Slot Box Collector, and others that I don’t remember at this time.

Graduated from Ballard High School in 1969, went to Edison Technical Collage for a couple of years taking welding and metal fabrication, tig, mig, heliarc, also arc and gas welding and fabrication. Then Apprenticed under a slot machine technician who worked in the slot machine industry Reno Nevada, and set up bar poker progressive machines in the casino's, and repaired machine and did the repairs on slot machine circuit boards there. He also was involved in the 2 hand dealer's market and bought and sold machines at the casinos auctions for the secondary market, which includes selling used machine overseas. I learned a ton from this man; he always had the correct answers and took the time to teach me the business. My interest and knowledge in other and older coin operated machine is for the most part, self-taught. It's been my passion from back in 1968 and before, my thirst for knowledge about these machines has kept me more interested over the years, and keeps me searching for more information even today. I have meet and talked to book authors on these machines, attended hundreds of coin operated shows and auctions, and I stay with that to this very day.

My other awards come from the very people that I deal with, I always make them happy, no matter what it takes, but they always are happy anyway as the countless thank you letters testify to me, so I know I am doing right, and the best I can.
