Gaming Machines

Gaming machines are fixed electronic machines where a variety of games can be played. Typically referring to the machines used in casinos and arcades, gaming machines often involve the exchange of payment for the opportunity to play the game. Popular types of gaming machines include slot machines and poker machines in casinos, and pinball or gaming cabinets in video arcades.

How do casino machines work?

Casino machines have changed over the years as technology has improved, but the concept remains the same. Typically, the user pulls a handle to rotate 3 reels printed with pictures. The user wins once the pictures line up with the pay line. The casino machine’s payout is determined by which pictures land on the pay line.

Who maintains arcade gaming machines?

Arcade gaming machines are typically maintained by the arcade owner. It is prohibited to maintain or repair arcade gaming machines without the appropriate license as the outcome of the game can be altered. Daily maintenance activities that are able to be done without a license are cleaning, moving, or clearing coin jams from the gaming machines.

What are the most common types of arcade gaming machines?

The most common types of arcade gaming machines are video arcade machines that feature games like Pac-Man, and pinball machines. Other common arcade machines are ticket redemption machines like Skee-Ball, interactive games like Dance Dance Revolution, as well as merchandise games like the crane and claw machines.

Nintendo 2DS

The Nintendo 2DS launched in October of 2013, defined as an entry-level of the Nintendo 3DS as it maintains similar hardware and functionality but differs with the integration of a new slate form factor. The Nintendo 2DS faced criticism when compared to the 3DS, noting its battery life, sound quality, and overall design.

Although reviews were mixed and despite its lack of 3D support, it received praise for its comfortability when held, robustness due to a lack of hinges, and price point. Production for the Nintendo 2DS ceased in February of 2020.

The Nintendo 2DS has a height of 5” (127 mm), width of 5.66” (144 mm), depth of .8” (20.3 mm), and approximate weight of 9.2 oz (.26 kg). The upper display size of the Nintendo 2DS is 3.5” (88.9 mm) with a resolution of 400 x 240, while the lower size is 3.02” (76.7 mm) with a resolution of 320 x 240 px.

Pinball Machines
Side profile of a Pinball Machine with a man playing

Pinball is a type of arcade machine played in a pinball machine, or pinball table, where players score points by maneuvering steel balls within the machine cabinet. Pinball machines often include stories based on popular culture to theme the playing field, points, and bonus targets. Players manipulate the steel balls through flippers that protect the ball from a drain at the bottom of play. Pinball machines are comprised of a main cabinet for play, a backbox for keeping score, and angled legs for stability.

Pinball machines vary between machines but typically have an overall length of 51” (130 cm), width of 28.5” (72 cm), and height of 75.5” (192 cm). The playing surface is set at a slope of 6.5°.

Casino Slot Machines

Casino slot machines are gambling machines where a game of slots is played by inserting coins and pulling a handle to randomize a final alignment of spinning symbols. If the resulting combination is a winner a payoff is dropped into a coin holder for the player’s reward. Slot machines are popular gaming machines on every casino gambling floor and can range in types from the traditional reels machine to themed computerized slots and video machines.

Slot machines range in dimensions but are traditionally around 30” (76 cm) deep and 74” (188 cm) high. General clearances of 52” (132 cm) should be provided for the machine and chair and aisle clearances should be fixed at a minimum of 36” (92 cm) wide for accessibility.
