Jennings Governor

Vintage Jennings Governor one arm bandit. This is an earlier model dating from the late 1940s. Jennings slot machines were a favourite of the casinos due to the reliability of it's mechanisms but especially for the beautiful chromed cases. The models were often Indian themed and had a bust of an Indian head on the front, which some players would rub for luck. Jennings produced a number of variations of the Indian head theme, the Governor being the most common available today.  What made the Jennings range of slot machines stand out from the others were the fact the coin escalator was fixed permanently to the main mechanism, this made it reliable as most problems occur on slots where escalators are separate from the mechanism. The Jackpot was also firmly attached to the mechanism again proving reliable. The cabinet side panels were mahogany wood on early models, later they covered the panels with formica.  The chrome is shiny and the machine is fully operational using the old 5 pence piece. Keys for the rear panel are also included.
