wildbill, I was hoping that the reels would be the same, but unfortunately they are not, the ACES and the PYRAMIDS line up. And when they do all the encoder holes all line up.
The order of the other cards are not the same. I think this is done to work the machines odds to the owners favour.
I see what you mean about the results, however I think that three jacks would mean that three jacks appear anywhere on the 5 reels. This will add a few more combinations. Can somebody
that plays slots correct me?
Plus the Pyramids act as wild cards so I will need a routine to work out the best possible cards to replace them.
With the suns, they are counted as being anywhere in the playing window. I was going to add another IR sensor, and have a white strip which will extend two spaces either side of the sun. So you
will get a 1 or 0 for each reel to determine if the sun is present in the window.
Here are the orders:
Reel 1: A, J, Sun, Q, 10, J, K, J,Q, J, Wild, J, 8, J, Q, J, 7, J, 10, J, Q, J
Reel 2: A, 10, 7, J, 7, 10, K, 10, 7, 10, Wild, 10, 7, 8, 7, Q, 10, K, 10, 7, SUN, 7
Reel 3: A, 8, 10, 8, J, 8, K, 8, 10, 8, Wild, 8, 10, 8, 7, 8, Q, 8, 10, 8, SUN, 8
Reel 4: A, J, K, J, 8, 7, Q, 8, K, J, Wild, 7, 8, K, 7, J, Q, 7, K, SUN, 8, 7
Reel 5: A, Q, 7, Q, 8, 7, Q, 8, K, Q, Wild, 7, Q, K, J, 8, Q, 7, SUN, Q, K, 8
I hope I haven't broken any laws by posting this... I can't imagine any of these machines would still be in circulation.
