The term 'Chittay' (also called 'Chitty') is a vernacular expression which seems to be widespread in the Channel Islands, particularly Jersey, but also other parts of the South West of England to refer to a pub quiz machine.
The origin is somewhat obscure, but one thought is that is originates from the word 'Cheat', which is a bonus that some quiz machine gives when the machine is just about to pay out.
(ii) Money/Loose Change
By extension, money that is either put into the quiz machine is sometimes referred to as 'Chittay'
Has anyone got any chittay for the machine?
