In a classic case of not leaving well enough alone. I took out the playfield and brought out the disassembled Gold Strike outside to blow out all the dust, reassembled it inside and now it won't go into WoW mode with all the drops down. What should I be looking for 1st?

If it's anything like my Pop A Card, there may be some sequence relays that track if all targets in a bank are down. Check for that and also examine the switches on the drops themselves - might have dinged one pulling the playfield.

Quoted from embryonjohn:

The U/Reset Target Bank relay should fire once all the targets are down to reset the targets and fire the P/Wow Control relay which turns the Wow light on. For the U relay to fire, switches on the back of the drop target banks need to close. Not the individual drop target switches, but the switches that close when all the drop targets are down. Each target bank has one. There's other logic involved, but since you fussed with the playfield, the target bank completed switches seem more likely.
