Re: Exacta lock picking

Your photo of The Exacta is too small for my eyes, ears, nose and throat.
All I can distinguish is it's missing half of the track that runs the coin from the coin entry down to the gate.

If you want to get a lot closer and even take it out of its case we might spot the problem.

Re: Aristocrat not paying

Those are called the horizontal fingers. When you get a winning combination, another set of fingers above those (vertical fingers) slide into holes in the three discs that are attached to the end of the reels. Because the vertical fingers are pivoted in the middle, when they slide into the discs the...
