Re: Temple’s Penny Arcade Trailer Project

That's a better version of the Clock for taking money. I forgot to mention, the optimum operating height for old penny machines is 29 inches off the ground (to the base of the machine), otherwise kids have to be lifted up all the time. As it looks like yours may be higher, you could have a removable...

Re: Temple’s Penny Arcade Trailer Project

Although you will be operating with little to no competition, with a relatively limited space to fill it's worth putting the best money taking machines on there, and there are machines that will take three times more than others.

Re: Electromatic Wheel-Em-In

Silver Circles was the machine that had the slide down chute and the coin had to land fully inside a circle on the board to pay a win, via optical sensor inside each circle, then the coin was cleared by the play field tilting.
