The driver from DB Schenker called around 10AM. He stated I needed a check to pay for delivery (it was a COD delivery). Hmmm when asked about paying by credit card he stated I had to call the main number. Yeah.
DB Schenker is not set up for consumers. After two phone calls and and being transferred 3 times...I paid the delivery fee.
The truck arrived 10 minutes later.

I felt like the dad in A Christmas Story when he got his fancy prize. Fragile! Must be French!

I love it. I truly do. I have put over $500 into it. I have won very little. The biggest hit so far was 300 credits. Kelli has "lost" over $180. She hasn't hit anything more than $30.

It is very interesting seeing the guts of the machine as well as all the software setup options. One I didn't know about was the sound of the reels stopping. A slot machine makes a mechanical click. That click is just a solenoid clicking on and off....it's easy to turn off (mine is currently off). There are a ton of options. I spent a good hour playing with them.
My machine takes in coins and bills. For coins I can set it up to take in dimes, nickels or quarters. Regardless of which is inserted it thinks its a quarter. Right under the coin slot slot is a coin comparator. I put in a "sample" coin that is used to compare coins put in. If I put a nickel in as the sample coin, only nickels will be accepted. Pretty neat.
I tore through all the rolled quarters and nickels Kelli had so neatly stored away. I love my wife.
Kelli wasn't too happy when she got home...but she did play for a bit.

Not sure what my next machine will be. Why more than one machine? Well....Casino Byrd of course.
