Slot Terms You Need to Know: Volume 26

Mechanic: Is there a doctor in the house? This guy (or gal, to be fair) is the person in charge of keeping your favorite slot machine in good working order. Mechanics fix things, and the folks employed by casino operators under that title are no exception. If a slot game needs fixing, the mechanic is there to get the job done. You may not have known that the house mechanic is also the one in charge of setting the devices’ payoffs. Ergo, if you are given the rare opportunity to communicate with one of these workers, you will probably not want to make a bad impression!

It goes without saying that the machines are more vulnerable to the sorts to tampering being attempted by DRILLERS, SPOONERS, and STRINGERS.
