Dig Dug Slot Machine

One of my friends and fellow local collectors here in Indianapolis, IN has a (Atari’s) Dig Dug slot machine. It is pretty wild, all of the colors, the whole presentation is like “BAM!” You can imagine seeing it in person, it plays little automated clips as well as the classic
coin operated Dig Dug music.

I was looking for something arcade related to post about today, and came across this photo I took in April. I imagine these Dig Dug slot machines aren’t too common, and that is what sparked the idea to post this photo.

I would say this is the first in the series of “Collector Meetups – My Favorite Games“. Granted, this may or may not be a game. But it seems that with each video game, or arcade game collector I meet I learn about a classic game I had never heard before. Or in this case, some other rare arcade game oddity.

I may never post another one of these again. But who knows, if I need another idea, at least I have this arcade topic to turn to.

Here are some similar arcade posts

Hey, that’s pretty cool! It looks like it might be Japanese?

I would have to ask the owner, but the one time I saw the Dig Dug slot machine, I kind of remember it having some eastern influences.

Let me ask the owner and I’ll post an update. Not that knowing whether the Dig Dug slot machine is extremely important, but good to know for everyone at least.

~Edit: I got an email back and the Dig Dug slot machine is Japanese for sure. Will probably look closer at it on Sunday.

Visit this page, it is all of the resources for repair techs and shops in the Indianapolis area that you can contact about having this possibly repaired. I am not sure if they work on slot machines, but it’s worth a try.
