Treefrog, so it could be correct then... Where do I have to look when the 20 payout doesn't work?

So firstly, does the upper finger pass though all three pay discs when getting the jackpot? Secondly, have any of the slides tripped when getting the jackpot? If not, the likely issue is either the upper finger does not pass through the pay discs all the way, or there is an issue lower down at the horizontal pay fingers or slide locking lever. May also be a slide sticking issue...

If you can confirm the above scenarios, will help on next steps...

On the bug question, it is unlikely there would have been a win left on the reel strips where the bugs are positioned, otherwise anyone playing would be complaining all the time, unless the star wheels were bugged as well. Did you confirm this with the reels aligned in the correct position?

Just to make it clear what I was asking in my last post and Tom is referring to in his last post, is the first reel strip on your machine one continuous strip or are there one or two "patches" stuck on with a symbol on the patch? Usually when an operator wanted to increase his profits he would plug a couple of payout holes on the first reel disc (as yours were) and cover what used to be the winning symbols on the reels with a "patch" containing a losing symbol. Under normal conditions, when you remove the plugs (as you have) you need to also remove the "patches", thus returning the reel strips to their original pay combinations.

On a normal fruit symbol reel strip the patch would most likely cover a cherry, on the Clubmaster it could (in theory) cover any symbol that appears twice or more on the strip, but it would most likely cover a "10". :cool:

The 10 was covered 2 times on the first star wheel (I pronounced it incorrectly). I didn't see any patches on the reel strip, I look into that after the weekend.
Thanks for the clear post about the pay fingers... I also look into that after the weekend.
Thanks again guys, and have a great weekend. :byee:

No, you did not pronounce it incorrectly, star wheels and payout discs are different things. Tom was referring to two possible different ways to change payouts. On your machine two holes in the payout disc have been plugged so as to remove two of the payouts and improve the operator's profits.

Tom also mentioned a possible "bug" on a star wheel (the star wheel is the small inner wheel on the reel that looks like a multi pointed star). Operators would place a "bug" (a small block or peg of some kind) into one of the gaps in the star wheel, making it impossible for the reel to stop at that point. For example, if the "bug" was inserted into the space where the BAR symbol would normally stop, the player would think it was possible to get three bars and the jackpot, when in fact it was impossible for it to ever come up. A nice trick? dirtdog
