Believe it or not, my easiest to pull, smooth quiet action, is a Groetchen "Columbia".
I know, most people don't like them, but my Wife wanted this one years ago, and has
run trouble-free.

Plus 1 on the Columbia, they're almost too quiet. It's all that clatter and machine noise that makes slots interesting to play.

By far, my Caille MultiBell. Also the pride of my collection.

I agree with Leospanner on the Multi bell.
Properly restored they run great, and the coins never seem to lap or jamm as the mechanism gently funnels the coins into the coin tubes or cash box one at a time.
Such a well engineered machine, its a real shame they were not commercially successful due to the complicated award structure!

Hey, What about the rest of us wearing hearing aids? These machines all seem quiet at some point in our lives, right? I am certain you guys are correct about the quietness of the machines you have reviewed, but I am needing a boom box or sub woofer to get the old ear bones moving to truly enjoy the "mechs". Or maybe they make a cokelear (sp) ear transplant to get the joyous sounds pumping again. Whatever! The beautiful sounds these slots makes is certainly music, even Mozart would or should be jealous. It's one of the more fascinating sounds I know. Best to you all and enjoy the Eclipse ! Where will you be?
