This is my first Arduino based project. Maybe it's not the most unique project to work with but I have always wanted to own a real fruit machine. This was the cheapest way to get one :wink:
Main goal was to build complete machine but not spend too much money to make it work, so I tried to use as much recycled parts as possible. At least bottle caps works quite nice as buttons or what you think?
The machine has simple opto-coin mechanism which excludes all other coins than 0,20€, servo controlled hopper and three stepper-motor controlled reels.
Most of the tech and code is based on Arduinos learning material so I didn't have to reinvent the wheel at any phase of the project.
I'm happy to tell more in case someone got interested.
Here's a little video showing some gameplay action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d09m954jtMg
