Re: Sega Bell Hi-top reserve jackpot help

The reset bar is needed for resetting both the main jackpot and the reserve, so it is needed after a jackpot trip.

Re: Why are some bandits so complicated?

Is complexity just not what you’re use to. Also I believe German machines are far better engineered, than the crude American based 3 reelers. Also the German machines were designed for a few years not 70 and they still survive... Video was a bit long winded, I fell asleep after 30 seconds even when ...
