There are three wheels inside, showing horseshoes, spades, squares, hearts, and Liberty Bell symbol, the latter being a symbol of American independence. After pulling down the handle on the right side of the machine, the wheel will start to rotate, just like the modern megabucks.
When the “Megabucks” start to function quickly, there are 5 symbols on each wheel (horseshoe, spades, squares, hearts, and Liberty Bell symbols) will appear at the display window. So there are a total of 125 possible combinations for the three wheels. The probability of rotating to the same three symbols is 1/25. When each wheel stops, the Jackpot will make a sound. After the hammer is released, the sound just like the mechanism for asking the time to report.
