Always nothing from the inside ?
On my side I found some puzzle parts and put some more informations in my (German) forum.

I'm Luxembourgish, as you know, but most of my collector friends are in Germany, for this the language issue.
What found I out ?
First, some informations about Streets family in the coin slot magazine from 1982.
Second, that the name before was WIN-A-LOT, but was changed due to doggies.
Third, some speculations:
Because even after intense patent research, nothing about Streets brothers and game machines. I think that anyway most part of mechanism was behind and lower as the playing field. I guess that the payout was made with such kind of sliding mechanism, but not with coil, because
you should hear the noise at the payout. Possible alternate could have been a turning disc with holes for the coins, driven by main motor and with some cam wheels and release levels on the same axle. Just speculations. More interesting, I found a Japanese patent, much later (they often made it much later after the
real inventor) that show exactly coin transport between 2 conveyor belts to a higher level.
So, grab your cam, and prove that I am talking bullsheet
Seems to me some grammatical error in the preceding
