Topics I've Started

Got my new fruit machine, but...

08 December 2018 - 10:34 pm

Always a BUT!!


£1 coins payout as they should, but 20p's don't.


It's all cash by the way, 5p play £6 cash jackpot despite saying tokens over £3, obviously an upgrade.


Upon investigation, in test mode checking the payouts, the x2 token solenoids fire and the £1, but nothing for the 20p!


I take out the 20p solenoid to look at it, it seems to have melted or to be honest it looks like wax has been poured on it (photo available upon request).


So I think, I'll use a token solenoid instead, swapping that plastic cover so that the 20p tube will fit in etc. Still nothing, despite a pre-working solenoid....I check the fuses in the power supply box (I think in a pre owned machine replacing one of those seemed to work), it didn't, I replaced all fuses.


When you collect say 20p it just clicks up the meters and no 20p comes out.


Any ideas guys as to why it's not paying 20ps, I've had a few drinks so will check back tomorrow when a bit more lucid. 



My new machine...

Thought i'd treat myself to one of these... (see pic)


Just wondered how easy it is to make it 10p play rather than 5p.

Just noticed this on youtube  has it been emulated?

Don't think I have seen this emulated, I maybe wrong!

Reducing the height of a fruit machine

24 November 2018 - 12:01 pm

I was looking at buying a fruit machine for my shed, the only issue is that a machine of 65 inches in height or less would fit.


Unless I want a sit down fruit machine the only other way to fit one in would be say to jig saw some inches off the base of the machine, i.e were the coins go. 


Would anyone see any issues in doing this?
