Refill Keys and Refill Fobs work on most machines providing the owner has not disabled the switch.
The Refill Key

  • While the machine has no credits, turn the key 90 degrees to the right, this will enable the extra menus.
  • You can now cycle through the options using the buttons listed below.
The Refill Fob
  • This works in a similar way to the refill key as above, but you just need to touch the fob to the round disk found on the machine.
  • We supply the fobs ready to be used on the machines, no extra work is required to use the fob.

Some machines will have a sticker showing "MIDAS" on it this means the machine is connected to a real-time monitoring service. This could mean that behind the bar there is an alarm or that off site someone is monitoring the machines. Either way, it could be that someone may come and ask you to leave if you are using the key on their machines. Just be careful and check for monitored machines before using your key.
