Nothing that weird personally, but the common items are paperclips in the bill acceptors, pennies in the player tracking card readers, and drinks spilt EVERYWHERE.

Years ago we had a guy piss in a beer bottle inbetween a couple machines. Security saw him and told him to leave. He swore up and down that is was beer. Even took a drink to prove it...

Short answer no.

Long answer. The new machines are all games. Plain and simple. They run off of algorithms. X credits in, Y credits out. In the long run X will always be bigger than Y.

It's really all about luck. If I knew which machines are going to be winners I would NOT be a technician.

Good reply. On top of it there jurisdictional limits the games can be set to. Even with setting it to the highest payout the game is still programmed to make money.

Door errors are really easy to fix. It's normally just the metal piece that holds the switch got a little bent. Bend it back and no more issues.

Machine spinning on it's own normally only happens with Ainsworth games. There's a setting that can turn that off. Otherwise it's probably just a dirty sticky button that is easy enough to fix.

Money readers not working is probably just dirty optics. A quick switch of the BV unit takes care of that.

Rearranging machines can get a bit annoying, but it's a hellva lot better than doing nothing.

Cleaning is normally handled by our floor people, you know that ones just there to hand out change. But it is one of my least favorite things to do.

I like the games with real reels. I'll own one of these someday. I like how they work.

I have not. I have known of a few co-wokers to get fired for that. 2 of them were on the clock and just really needed to release some stress. They were walked out not even an hour later. The other one was off the clock, had a few too many to drink and couldn't wait for the elevator trip up to her hotel room. Security was waiting for her on her next scheduled shift.
