Lucky Horseshoe bonus feature payout blocked ???

Postby pedroofn19 » Wed Jun 03, 2020 2:09 pm

I've just started tinkering with this Lucky Horseshoe, and I've noticed that there is a piece of metal soldered over one of the holes on the reel bundle/payout holes. The finger that is supposed to go into the blocked hole is the finger that hits the micro switch, and the finger has no spring to pull it into the hole. The electrics don't work yet, but I was wondering if a previous owner had blocked the hole once the electrics stopped working, as it works pretty well the way it is, just no bonus feature. If I was to remove the piece of metal and fix the electrics, would the bonus feature be triggered by that finger?

I believe that block is supposed to be there and is part of the operation.

See below thread we have discussed on topic around these jackpot win features.....it is allow the circuit to stay open

Clean up all the corrosion, get your spring and see if anything occurs? Be careful of the invisible blue stuff stuff that can make you go ouch; always wary of these electrical add-ons. Do you know a sparky who can run an electrical test over it to help you out?

Thats good then. I got a sparky mate who doesnt know a thing about bandits but hes done me good turn many time tracing circuits and working it all out. Good luck with it all and be sure to post the pics when you get it all refurbished.
