Exacta German One Arm Bandit

Postby rippyspennyarcade » Wed Dec 09, 2020 3:18 pm

Just bought this from a friend and close inspection of the reels I saw a number that didn't belong, Peeled it off and there was FREE SPIEL , has anyone any idea HOW this Free Play would be activated, I can't detect anything , I do have a repro set of numbers but wondering if anyone has a spare ORIGINAL NUMBER 5 that I could buy, Cheers

On closer inspection there is a piece of metal just hanging LOOSE to the Left of the payout tube. Hope this helps to answer my question.

I cannot make out the parts you are pointing to in the last pictures, but the free spin option has an extra disc attached to the last reel. This disc has a flat notch on one side where the free spin option lands, so on other side. There should be a lever that drops into this notch which effectively allows a lever on the end of the bar to operate the coin detection on the coin mechanism.

See picture below showing the lever that turns to select the coin detection, and on the other picture of the lever that drops onto the flat disc on the hub. I can see you have the flat disc, but you have not shared a picture from the rear.

Many thanks Treefrog for your reply. I seem to recognise the part from years ago when I had one of these but sold it. I would have liked the FREE PLAY but also I am happy enough to put a number 5 over it also (Lost). A couple more pictures from the other side.
Cheers

You are unfortunately not showing the back, but the payout parts on the side, which are not relevant

Need rear and higher to see the parts as well as if you have the part that trips the coin acceptor. I suspect they maybe there and just moved so nit to trip a free play... !!UHOH!!

Ha ha , still no straight shot from rear, but one of the pictures, I can just see the lower rod that holds the free play lever is missing, you can see the hole in the side frame where it was.

Not sure if I have this part in my box of bits, but can check. It is a long rod like the one that operates the slide payout that extends out.......

Some years back I posted about the Exacta that I had and waffled endlessly about its free spin function and also its re-spin button for the first reel. I was most impressed though by it's tilt mechanism which kicked in if the case was thumped, it incorporated a rod which dropped locking up all of the slides until the next play. Also a flag dropped advising the world of your cheating'ness.

However having recently offended the Pennymachines Robot it won't play with me :NBG: ... so I can't find it.

BP :cool:

I believe it is the pendulum part from the anti tilt device missing from the machine.....but someone may correct me. I have similar devices left on mine, but missing the actual lever with the words on, see below. Again nothing to do with the free spin...
