Bar billiards or Russian billiards is a fascinating traditional game first imported into England from Belgium in the 1930s. Designed for pubs and clubs, shots are taken from one end only which reduces the required floor space. It also means that the bar billiards table can be pushed into an awkward corner or niche thus turning a little-used area into a money spinner.
The Supreme Bar Billiards table comes with an adjustable electronic timer with a mechanical coin-slide. When the time is up, the internal bar drops and no more balls are returned to the front for replay. Players score points by knocking balls into the holes at the other end of the table while avoiding three "not-to-be-toppled" skittles near the high-scoring holes and the rules are such that games are frequently decided by the last ball on the table.
You can either have an Essex Straight Six Coin-Op mechanism which takes normal coins or an Essex 'Banana' Token mechanism. The Straight Six mechanism can be configured for various different UK coin combinations including 'Freeplay'. Tokens allow a landlord to charge a fixed amount for each game, without having to mess about with the coin mechanism. Remember to order the tokens separately, if you choose this option.

Approximate weight and dimensions 160kg - 6ft Long x 3ft Wide x 34" High (just under 3') - (183 x 92 x 86 cm). The timer in the table is electronic and requires a battery pack. The battery pack comes with the table but will eventually need replacing. Tables come with two cues, a set of balls, scoreboard, mushroom skittles, chalk and rules.
