This my first experience with rat trap score reels. While the ones and hundreds reels have the circuit board the tens on my machine doesn’t. Is this right?

The score reel circuit boards are used when the game needs to know more about the score. Most score reels have switches to distinguish 0 and 9 from the other positions which is enough to handle the carry (9->10) and resetting functions. But there are two other functions that need more information: match and high score. These functions need to know which position the score reel is in so a circuit board is added to distinguish between all 10 positions.

I don't have a Cross Town schematic handy, but on Egg Head for example the 1s and 100s score reels are used for match and high score functions to add a replay.

you is correct. Working on a King of Diamonds, same same, board on the 1s for match, board on the hundreds free game at score levels, nothing needed on the 10s

Makes sense. I could have checked my KoD but didn’t since it has decagon wheels. Thanks for letting me know. It certainly was easier to check out and clean without having to deal with the circuit board.
