It's what happens when you take a successful franchise and bastardise the best bits of it. Remove the reel box, remove the trust in a transparent gamble. Reduce the offers to pitiful levels, remove the perception of a fair game.

Punters aren't actually that stupid, so greed-o-matic have rightfully lost their market share. It didn't really take very long for Betcom to take it either, which shows how little foresight there was at BFM HQ. If their current test of a fairer game passes, lets hope its not too late to regain some of the lost trust, it can't just be players filling em up.

I fixed your 'weekly' typo to 'daily'.

FTFY = fixed that for you.

The last few days nearly ALL the Novomatic iPub2s round here have been broken/switched off in some way!
On one I was in the middle of HYN and it kind of froze, except the collect and start buttons were flashing but not receptive.
Another one had a 'fuzzy effect' on the screen which I was worried would make me epileptic.
2 more with out of order signs on them
WTF?

It's not about punters smashing up games because they're blatantly unfair. Sure it happens, but that's most likely the result of a burglary. It seems to be in fashion nowadays. Break into a pub, smash out the entirety of the top glass and help yourself to the hopper and notestacker. Earlier on this year I was in a pub playing an Exploder and the hopper was struggling to pay out. Not unusual for a betcom to play up on the hardware, but then I noticed shards of glass with the coins. Later on when sitting with my companions we got very chilly sitting near a fire exit door. It was then we saw some temporary boarding over the glass of the door and the penny dropped. Prior to that two powerplays got done over, turned around, no top glass, decals spilling everywhere. Until the manufacturers shroud the machine's cash handling entrails in metal containment and build the glass lamps and decals outside of this, I can't see this fad abating any time soon.

Donk on my part - a closer look reveals most of the plastic moulding still in place, probably was a punter smash then, engineer has removed broken glass ready to fit new glass.

You can tell when the toolers are out in force too. Starts with 5 note errors in a week then to cement this reasoning walk into a spoons where all 4 machines have their note excepters taped up
Marching on together

i've had a brutal run of errors past 2 weeks, like about 15 after virtually none for a month! luckily most of em only took me for the one note before reverting to coins, still waiting on 2 over a ton, obv one of those was not recorded after recording about 97 of my last 100 collects!
