We've had this slot machine since I was young. My father recently gave it to me for my house. I was wondering if it is worth anything in it's current condition also does anyone have tips on cleaning all the mechs? Thanks.

HI

Looks like a nice original watermelon slot. Just degrease it where needed and us a fine machine oil like 3 in 1. Worth around 1800.00.

This is a nice original machine and has good value. If you get a chance, take the mechanism out of the case and get some pictures of the mechanism itself and the inside of the case. There is a meter shown on the top back left side what is the number on that meter? The meter would record the number of jackpots and is a rough way of estimating how much use your machine was used. What part of the country are you in, I am in Montana and winter a few miles from Phoenix, I could help you clean the mechanism if you are close. Also there are videos that show you how to take apart, clean , and reassemble a mechanism. Whatever you do, do not use WD40 as this will cause more harm than good in the long run.

Well I am pretty far from you. I live in Pennsylvania. I will take a look at that counter I saw it and had no idea what it was lol. I had the Mech out because there was a jam. I'll have to get it out again and try finding vids on how to degrease it.

What is the best method of cleaning without taking it all apart? I'm ok taking the mech out of the cabinet but a little afraid of taking much more apart.
