Sega payouts

Post by geordy55 »

I've recently acquired this Sega. The award card refers to mystery payouts.
The single cherry and the two cherries pay out correctly, but the plums and the bells pay out 13 instead of 10.
Is this part of the mystery payout, or are the payout slides incorrect ?
Any help appreciated,
Dave.

no they are not the mystery payouts,they are an odd mix of symbols (cant remember which ones but someone will be along with the answer)

The payouts your getting are a little odd if bars,melons and oranges pay the correct 10 as they would use the same slides (do they pay 10 correctly?)


if they do its likley its the award card that is wrong as there must be a 3 coin slide in there to pay the 5 . All you need to do is change the award card.

I dont think its actually a Sega, looks like one of the popular Sega clones from that time that used Sega mechs

As Coppin says, what are the other payouts. One possibility is that you can see the machine has been converted as all top awards are ten coins, done after the decimalisation, so one possibility is that it is actually on 1p which are thicker than sixpence.........

I would also get a picture of the mechanism and slides in the payout position so so we can see

Hi Coppin and Treefrog, thanks for your comments.
Below is a pic of the payout slides and below I have indicated the numbers on the slides
Bottom = 1
Top = 6
1= 3B2-10503
2= 3B3 6
3= 3B5 6
4= 3B5 6
5= 3B4 6
6= 3B6-10504

1 cherry pays out 2 correctly
2 cherries pays out 5 correctly
All the other prizes seem to now pay out 9, it previously paid out 13 until I realised one of the pushers was catching slide 4 as well as slide 3.

I've also enclosed a photo of the sliders with a sixpence and a penny, boh fit, but the pennies are so much thicker that none of the slides would pay out correctly.

Any help would be appreciated, I'm a newbie, but learning quickly.

It looks like the slides may have been mixed as the second from top slide looks like a 5 coin slide and the two below it are two 4 coin slides. The 5 coin slide should be below the 4 coin slides. So bottom two, next a three coin slide, then the 5 coin, then the two 4 coin slides down lastly the two coin at the top. May explain 13 payout as when the vertical levers trip the slides it takes the two 4 coin slides with the bottom two slides, making 13. Switch the big 5 coin slide down two levels and see what happens....

Hi treefrog, many thanks for hat help.

Do you recognise the numbers that are on the slides ? I guessed that they may represent he payout amount.

Also, going back to an earlier reply. The machine has a Sega manufacturing plate with a serial number that matches the mechanism. Do you know of anyone who has a record of serial numbers ?

Thinking about your suggestion, in theory that would then get the payouts back to 2,5,10,14 and 18. I'll try it at the weekend and check with the wheel side plates to see if those payouts can be achieved.

according to Sega Retro there is no know dating method,but someone might know something,you never know, If it is a Sega it would be very early for this style I think as the only model I know of without the "Sega" name cast in the front is the "multi bell 35" and that was the first of this style, Also Ive never seen one with just "Bonanza" and not "Bonanza Star" so if its Sega made I think an early one, Where is the serial number? on the case or the casting?

If you decide to switch to the 18,14,10,5,2 I might have a brand new payout glass I could be persuaded to part with

The manufacturers plate is on the outside of the case at the lower rear right side. This number is also stamped onto one of the arms on the left of the mechanism. It certainly looks professional ( not someone with a John Bull stamping set)
I'd like to make it back to 2,5,10, 14 & 18, I need to check what has been done to the payout fingers that makes them all pay out 10 only. Let me know what you'd want for the award card.
Can I ask if you go to the elephant house auctions ?

Actually these could easily be made up to make it look original, they aren't as good as I first thought. There are a couple of holes where it has had a top light box.
