A lot of our pinball, arcade and skill machines feature a coin acceptor so you can charge people to play the games. Naturally you can set all machines to free play in the settings menu of the machine, but if you want to earn some money while other people are playing on your arcade you can activate the coin acceptor. Here is how you configure the coin acceptor / comparator :
how to accept coins in your arcade machine
step 1 : place a coin
Our coin acceptors have a built in coin comparator. Simply slide the comparator open and insert a coin that is equal to the ones you want to collect from your players.
coins need to have a diameter between 20 and 29 millimeters
coins need to have a thickness between 1.2 and 2.5 millimeters
step 2 : start collecting coins
Yes, it is that simple. The built in comparator will only accept the type of coin you have inserted in the comparator. Only coins that match will create a credit and the coin will continue on to fall through the back slot of the coin acceptor into your money box.
different coins will fail
Coins that are of a different make, diameter or thickness will automatically fail and be rejected. Some coins will return immediately in the bottom coin rejector. Others will need to be released by pushing the rejected coin lever on the front of the coin acceptor. Either way the player does not get credits as the coin did not pass through the back slot signalling a valid credit.
