What did an inline gaming machine (available in Queensland pre-pokies) look like and how did they operate?

Does anyone know anything about the inline gaming machines that used to be available in RSL clubs and various other places in Queensland, back in the olden days (pre-1992) before pokies (aka slot and fruit machines) were introduced?

Before pokies were legally available in Queensland, Australia (1992 was when they were legalised) my father used to go to the local football club and the RSL club to play on these things known as inline gaming machines. I've never seen one and my googling skills remain craparsed as I haven't been able to track down much information regarding them. I wonder if anyone else could find me a picture and some details as to how they actually worked? Thanks for your help!
