Pennywise. Would you be able to take a close up photo of the award card please? The payouts have been altered on mine, and a handmade award card made, would like to go back to original.
Thanks.

Aristocrat Clubmaster award card

That's brilliant, thanks.
Got the payouts sorted on mine, this afternoon. Firstly, the coin slides were in the wrong order so it was paying out 7 coins, instead of 10, then the payout fingers. There are 9 fingers, 4 of which had no springs. The 3/5 finger and 10 finger were fine, but the 3 after which should be 14, 18, and twenty were all 10 coin fingers. The 4 with no springs were all 20 coin fingers!
Anyway, after some treatment with the Dremel and a file, I've got it working fine, apart from the award card.

Anybody know what the 4 spring-less fingers are for? I guess different reel strips with more payouts.

Funny how often machines turn up with slides wrong way round, I can only assume the less knowledgeable owner having a play....

Interesting the finger question, as you say more fingers normally refer to machines with other win or special award options, seen often on later Aristocrats.... What is odd is I had never really noticed this myself as looking at one of my Clubmasters, it is the same. The last four fingers are unsprung, but do have holes for wins not on awards. What is strange is that the top win is normally near the hub, but the Aces are the last finger working 5 in from the hub. !PUZZLED! I am going to check a few machines now as this is an odd one.

If you put springs on them all, lots of mystery jackpot wins. :cool:

Not mine, I used 2 of the 20 coin fingers to make the 14 & 18 fingers!

By the way, your award not only gives usual card symbols as awards with Aces being jackpot, you also have the Aristocrat symbol as the Jackpot... This was often seen on later machines with the Crown symbol and Aristocrat word... Do you have this on you reel strips, as all the ones I have owned stop at Aces? I had assumed this symbol started being used on Sheerlines onwards. !PUZZLED!

Your slides look in the correct order, but need that slide put back at the top. It should be a 2 coin payout. You will probably have same issue as Special's machine where the operator chopped the Ace, Queen and King payouts so 14, 18 and 20 only pay 10. So if you also have the spare upper fingers, as discussed above, you could return your machine to full pay... Not sure how your award has been changed, maybe just stickers with 10s on....

Yes TF, it had a sticker with 10s on it that I peeled off, but in special's picture of the slides the spare I have looks like it goes 2nd from bottom according to the pic. That's why I asked if that was the correct order.
At least I have the info now how to get it to correct payout, so it's just where to put this slide now.

If you read his comments you will see his were wrong.

From bottom up on yours, the first slide would be 3 coin, then 2 coin, then the big 5 coin, then 4 coin, 4 coin and on top a 2 coin.... From your picture, assuming your spare slide is the same thickness as the one second from bottom, then it should go on top of the stack as previously mentioned. Good luck.... You got those parts fitted yet?
