The machines we get in from casinos...well...in a word "stink", and I mean that literally. They are truly filthy. Keep in mind that the typical machine runs on the casino floor or sits in their warehouse for a minimum of 5 years and usually even longer than that.
It's internal fans breath in smoke and dust particles for years building up on the interior of the machine. It collects on and clogs up the vents, grilles, and fans. It's not uncommon to see spilt drinks and other messes that collects down the interior of the door and onto the inside floor of the machine. The exteriors are covered with plaques and stickers...super NOT fun to get off !!!
From what we can tell the casino's do not do much to clean the machines while they have them other than perhaps a quick wipe down of the glass and button deck. The sad thing here is that with clogged ventilation they run hot and often the internal parts are damaged or their life spans reduced.
As I am both a collector and a reseller I decided early on in my business that we would not distribute any machine that I would not put into my own home. It has to be made as clean as possible. And as a result of that decision I can say with confidence we offer one of the best products on the market.
When reasonably necessary and possible, we replace faded or scratched aesthetic parts. And for sure the machine will be made 100% operational as any bad electronic or mechanical part will be replaced and warranted. It's of course important that it looks as good as possible but equally important it needs to ventilate well and run cool so it runs well with minimal future maintenance issues to our customers. We also do extras that many of our competing resellers do not like modifying the board for easy battery changes and we change out the incandescent button bulbs with new LED bulbs for a super bright clean look.
