    Quoted from tullster:

    I took my Skill Roll to the MGC years ago, and the nickel loss wasn't as bad as I expected. The main problem I had was kids dropping multiple nickels into it causing coin jams everywhere, so I had to keep a close eye on it.

    I haven't investigated yet, but a buddy tried two nickels and it tilted. Then tried it again and it tilted again. Is this normal operation? If so, a great way to deter that behavior.

    Quoted from Gundam_Pilot_:

    I guarantee. mind you this is a guarantee......... You have a bad fuse holder on the back door. I have had 3 skill rolls, and all 3 did the same thing. Its always been the fuse holder, cold solder, broken solder, bad holder. Just replace it. Its a 4 fuse assembly.

    Got it! Thanks. Same crappy fuse holders Bally is famous for. Weird that it only does it when installing more than one nickle except it does do it when the game is first turned on too.

    That sounds like what is happening. Neither affects other operation.

    It's a darn nickel swallower for sure. No replays given!

    Kids are smarter than we give them credit for when it comes to our complicated antique machines.

    I just tried several times with two nickels and there are definitely certain combinations of scoring shots that will make it tilt and others that don't.

    Edit- I get it now. Once a nickel has made it down to a certain level, the next nickel will just start a new game with the first nickel still in play.

    One of my pinball buddies brought his son over on Saturday who is quite a player himself.

    Dad got it all the way to the bottom row, and the kid took the last shot, his very first ever on this machine, and nailed it.

    Dang, you accomplished way sooner than I did. Nice work.

    I was feeling magic fingers that evening Alex, It's a crapshoot if I ever could do that again.
