Who wants to hack some slot machines?
« on: September 17, 2013, 09:20:29 PM »

Now this isn't "FAMiLab's 11" or anything heist-ish, a good friend of mine just got a job at a bar and they've got a half-dozen slot machines under their ownership. With these machines, they'd like to let their patrons play for free, but the machines don't have a setting for that.

Some of you have met this friend, Horus, and some more of you may have been to the bar, The Cork Room. I haven't done circuit work in ages, else I'd do it myself. So if any of you would like to build a piggyback circuit for the machines that would allow free play to patrons, hit up Horus at (305)7nine8-6755 (text messages only he requests). There's a bar tab available to anyone FAMi enough for the job. I don't know much beyond this post, and if you're interested, Horus would be the one to ask.

can you post more information on the slot machines?

make/model ?

you could just install a switch/momentary button that trips the coin counter. we (i) do it all the time on older arcade & pinball machines.
