As we know, the Buckley Bones and the Bally Reliance didn't actually throw dice; it had reels which, instead of having reel strips with symbols printed on them, had little boxes with dice, the height of the transparent boxes being such as to prevent the dice from changing which number is on top.
Recently, I came across, on the web, an old ad for the Bally Reliance in Automatic Age magazine which actually claimed otherwise - that dice were actually thrown inside the machine. Since the publication was for operators and not punters, I'm rather surprised at that. (The particular advertisement was also shocking by comtemporary standards for other reasons.)
I don't happen to know the machine's "reel strip" layout, so I can't answer that question.
That would be the Seven Way Multi-Bell for one. I'm not knowledgeable enough to come up with more examples.
I see I missed your post where you gave its reel strip layout.
Left drum: 13 compartments.
2 appears once, 12 appears once, 11 appears once, 7 appears once. So there are two losses and two wins in which one does not get to see the second compartment.
4, 5, 66, 888, 9, 10 are the remaining numbers.
On the right drum, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10 each appear once, the rest of the compartments contain sevens.
Hence, not counting 7 in both compartments, as it doesn't work that way, the chance of making a point is 9/169.
Since the label speaks of putting one coin in for the left reel, and another for the right reel, do further coins re-roll the right reel until one either makes the point or a 7 comes up?
I let YouTube answer my question. I see you just put one coin in, and then you get to push the lever for free until you win or lose. And in looking that up, I learned even more... I learned about the even more rare Mills Dice machine.

I've added, therefore, more detail to what was a brief description of the Mills Bonus to my own page.
And now I've updated the page further to add what you've told me about the cams.
