The 777 payout is rather dull in that it pays just 10 coins as its bonus and this not even won by having 7s in any 27 way direction; whether this is unique to mine or across the board I cannot say. Considering it has the same odds as hitting three bars or melons (one 7 on each reel) then it's rather tight. There are mystery wins, I can't remember what they are 'cause my machine is tucked away in storage in the house but certainly orange melon bar pays 10. Overall it's quite a generous machine in its gameplay but ultimately it will suck your money dry.

The reel layouts are almost identical to the Mills EJ triple 7. I am fairly certain that your mystery payouts are as follows:
Orange Orange Melon
Orange Melon Orange
Orange Melon Melon
Orange Melon Bar
All pay 10 coins.

Many may remember the early Jub twin j/pot at Coventry last November.
Most of the bandit lads commented on it as it had a viewing window over the coin gate and a coin return in the casting above the reels.
Anyhoo, it's now in pieces and awaiting 3 coats of looking at.
The reason for my post is, that inside the cabinet I found the original manufacturing label ……

Those in the know will see that K Nutt inspected the machine.
Ken was the son of Roy Nutt whom along with Sid Muddle started the company.
Roy described his son thus: - "Ken couldn't sell fish on Good Friday"
Quote lifted from here
So unlike his Dad who was a natural salesman Ken worked in the factory.

Going back to the above bandit ………
Isn't it dead handy when investigating why a machine has dodgy pay outs you realise that your original thought "..... it's covered in so much dry grease I expect it's that" was only you fooling yourself?

A bit of delving reveals 5 clips covering holes in the first pay out disc, yet no symbols changed on the reel. Then having straightened that out, another day is enjoyed scrutinising the reel strips which have an eccentric randomness about their positioning.

What fun, and no mistaking …..
