Guaranteed win due to fault
#1
So a few days ago was playing a machine for a an average profit - go to collect out my money and it errors Sad . Call over the manager who starts to right down my details so I say let's repower it and see if it spits out my money - he does and indeed I get my money.

Next day go up to the same machine and something about the reels looks familiar - so I play it and yet again make an average profit - go to collect out my money and yet again it errors. Call over the manager again and again a repower sorts it and I get my money.

So at this point I realise the fault on this machine means that if I could sit there for an hour or so playing and repowering I'd be able to empty it.

Who would have done ?

I didn't not just because it's borderline dishonest but it's in view of the whole pub and the manager/punters would have spotted me.

Same again the next day though - but this time the manager must have called out the engineer because now it's working correctly.

No you've done the right thing, only so many turn on and offs the staff are gonna take. Even if yer not doing anything wrong constant errors gonna arouse suspicions. Youll quickly get ' oh you again' You'll make more money in the long run by being allowed in the pub. Anyway yer a man who likes to make his bread honestly arnt you.

Hungryant, did you mean off and ons?! Pretty much an instant barring to do that now, potentially police being called! Wetherspoons are massive fire now I'd say, where befeore you could get away with murder. Using a torch, refill key or popping a button alot less likely to go unnoticed imo, even looking at different areas of the machine or moving a coin across the holds is a no no for me these days!
