Novomat Restoration

Postby youngerap » Sat Jun 29, 2013 1:43 pm

Would anyone be able to tell me what the two split card frames on the Novomat machine should contain? There are two of these frames; one on the front and the other on the side panel. If possible, I would like to populate these frames before I put the mechanism back in.

Any information would be much appreciated.

OK...

The original German inserts were often removed following export. The upper section housed a thin card with the instructions and a glass cover. The lower section housed the stamped metal German gambling licence plate or, as in the example below, a players' age restriction notice.

Take a look at this great pdf about restoring the Novomat from our German friends: http://www.automatenarchiv.de/images/novom_doku.pdf (PDF now here)
It shows the upper GEWINNPLAN (Totalizator or payout plan) and the Spielregel (instructions).

From our German friend at http://www.t2balli.de
From this we have...
1. 0,10 DM-Stück einwerfen.
2. Seitlichen Handhebel herunterziehen.
Bei Versagen Geldrückgabeknopf drücken.
3. Durch betätigen des Knopfes 1 Walze in günstigste Zahlenkombination bringen.
4. Ergebnis abwarten und mit Gewinnplan vergleichen.
Spieldauer 15 Sekunden
Which loosely translates (with help from Google) to:
1. Insert Penny/DM etc.
2. Pull side handle
Press the coin return button for reject coins.
3. Press skill button to stop first reel.
4. Wait for result and check against payout card.
Game duration 15 seconds
Anyone else need their homework doing before Monday?

This gentleman will now explain it all in Spanish!



Watching it reminded me how the "skill button" works. My loose translation was a bit off. Should be more like 3. Press skill button to move first reel to winning number.

His website at http://www.antiguedadestecnicas.com/productos/J-813.php has some good pictures, including this of the side plate.

I'm guessing he just made up a card with the name and date, but I don't know what it was supposed to contain.

Probably an operators card on the side.

I've only ever seen the original German metal stamped licence in the side frames.

I've never seen two frames like that used on any Krautomat either BP. So that extra frame on the side is probably just a spare that was laying around and the operator added it to house his card.

I think you'll find the Novomat has two of these frames as standard, but you rarely see pictures of the left (boring side) of a bandit. Many other Wulff wall machines have the frame with a licence plate on the upper left side of the case. The Novomat and Orion (for example) use an identical frame to carry game instructions on the front as well.

Thanks PM for setting me straight. Now that you mention it, I can see the edge of that second lhd side frame in the still for the vid you attached a few posts earlier. We rarely ever see any of the 'omat machines in Oz. Having said that we rarely see any other machines in Oz either!
