Re: Exacta German One Arm Bandit

The free spin (when there's a symbol on reel 3) is a disc on reel 3 that a hammer falls into. This gives a free play on the machine not just one reel. This rotates a thin axle (which can be seen in the video) which runs across the bottom of the casting where the coin drops into the tube, it ends in ...
