Aruze - EGM Power Down

With regards to the machines themselves the best advice can be seen below:

  1. Please abide by all directions given by the regulator in your state.

  2. If machines can be turned off it is recommended that they are turned on for 3-4 hours every 3-4 days. This will assist with keeping enough power in the batteries to ensure that when the machines come back to full operation that there are a reduced amount of issues that will occur.

The battery on the body PCB tends to be the first to drain when a machine is off for an extended period of time. These can be easily replaced and no issues when turned back on.

If the GMEM battery fails it may result in setting the machine up again when replaced, we suggest recording jackpot levels and any hidden values on SAPS as a precautionary measure.
