Mills Bonus Hightop - Bonus Issue

Postby scottzearbaugh » Tue Nov 06, 2018 12:34 pm

Hello, I recently purchased a 25 cent Bonus Hightop slot machine. I was able to repair the base wood and repaint; however, I have an issue with the bonus mechanism. I usually ask my brother-in-law when I need a strong back and a weak mind, but in this case I need some talent. Every time I cycle the machine, the bonus mechanism indexes the next letter. After five cycles the word BONUS is spelled and the machine pays out correctly. I looked at the Geddes & Mead book, but was not able to figure out the problem. I also compared it to another machine and all the parts are installed. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks. Scott

My guess is that you have a spring broken or missing that reset the kicker for the letters.
