No chip swap needed. This is a 100% electromechanical machine. To change payback percentage, new reel strip(s) and different reel index wheels are required (ratchet wheels)
A poor man's way to increase paybacks, which I presume you wish to do is to add a Bar symbol to the right reel. Make a photograph of a Bar and pick the symbol you want to replace. You will have to modify the right reel's index wheel by cutting/grinding or filling in the slot/groove, depending on which symbol you replace. Easy way to fill in is with bolt, nut and two washers.
If you want to decrease paybacks, like greedy operators rigged their machines, is to completely fill in an index wheel so the reel can never index (stop) on that symbol. Usually done to the rightmost reel's "7" or "Bar" stop position.
Also, thanks for reminding me that I have to see Mike at Expo.
