    Default Machine Expectancy

    I just bought my first machine, really have no idea about them except they are fun to play! Just had a quick question after reading through the manual. My machine has about 30,900 plays. I have no idea if this is good or bad, so I thought I'd ask. What is the typical machine expectancy? Is 30k low mileage or well used? Looks to be in fairly nice shape for a 1993 machine, working through some other details but curious as to what I bought? Thanks in advance! (It's Bally 5000 Plus)

    Wait, since when did the Modern Pachislo have a Play counter ? How can I find this on my Marvel Hero's machine ?

    Apologies, I don't know much about them.. The Bally 5000+ has a dial counter (its so small its almost hidden) on the front of the machine.
