Lucky Ace Game Over relay (resized).jpg

#1 1 year ago

I finally have my game working again. the game over relay wasn't energizing at start up. The ground wire to the coil wasn't making good contact. I resoldered it and game plays properly but the game over relay stays energized during gameplay and is loud. Should this relay stay energized during a game?

I think so. Does this game count up to 5 balls at the start, and then down to zero as you play? If so it looks like the Coin relay switch fires the Game Over relay at the start of the game, then the Ball Count unit keeps it active until the Ball Count reaches zero:

If that's the case the name is counter intuitive. Maybe it should be called the Game Not Yet Over relay.

Yes, that it is how the ball count unit works. It makes sense to me now. Thank you.
