Re: How much does he owe us?

Very difficult to do this without removing the colour from the payout symbols. Either satisfy yourself with nothing more than a wipe with a damp cloth or prepare for a full restoration.

"Mystery Payouts" aren't mysterious- local markets (ie different countries) have different rules for minimum payouts and machines are factory designed to have a payout of around 70%.

after the amm fiasco i'm suprised anybody want's anything to do with Mr. Hunt. :-? Steve Hunt is generally considered among the slot machine community to be somebody "not trustworthy in business dealings" and I'm sure that reputation will follow him around for ever. It's a shame. I don't know how m...
