I am new to this forum, I got it recommended from someone who suggested that this was the place to go with my problems.
I have been restoring an Aristocrat Kingsway machine for some time now, but there is one thing I can’t understand.
The cabinet and mech has matching serial numbers, but the reels don’t seem to match the graphics on the front. The graphics say it’s a “Tic-Tac-Toe”, but these symbols are nowhere to be found on the reels. Instead I have lots of oranges, some melons, a 7 and some plums. In addition there has been a joker-symbol stuck on top of one of the melons on each reel.
The machine has a jackpot unit on it, and the jokers pay out the bonus on the center line. The “bar-symbol” also pays out the bonus.
I’m planning on replacing some of my graphics, and therefore I would like to make sure that the machine isn’t actually some other themed machine, with the wrong graphics. If it's just a matter of replacing the jokers with the TIC/TAC/TOE symbols that would be an easy fix, compared to the alternatives.
Also, I’m missing some key parts for my machine.
Primarily I need some locks.
I need a new lock for the bottom drawer, as I had to drill that out some time ago. I have the rod for it, but the square metal plate that goes between the lock and the rod is broken. See picture.
I also need a new complete lock assembly for the main door. I haven’t seen any pictures of what it's supposed to look like, so I can't describe it any further.
Lastly I need some of the chrome moldings that would go around the top sign. This meaning the frame for the sign, the ring for the coin-hole and the reject-button.
Is there anyone on this great forum that would be able to enlighten me on the matter of the reels, and what theme this machine actually is supposed to be?
And if someone could point me in a direction that might lead to me tracking down some of the missing parts, that would be great!
See pictures for further details.
Thanks in advance.
