Casino Byrd

My Slot Machine arrived today!

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.



  1. Ok, your video with the type of music you used... it makes it look like slot machine p0rn! At least to my warped mind it does...

  2. I did a quick search for royalty free music...this was the second track I found...Titled "All Night Baby"....LOL http://freeplaymusic.com/search/category_search.php?t=v&i=1620
