Group 8—Penny fall amusement game standards.
In Group 8 games, players insert coins or tokens (coins) into a chute and aim the chute to win a prize. The coins land on a flat surface(s) which has sweeper and/or pusher arm(s) moving across the surface(s). Carefully aimed coins may cause coins on the flat surface(s) to be pushed or swept into holes or chutes which dispense tokens or tickets to the player.
(1) Coin fall games must:
(a) Have level surfaces and contain similar coins; and
(b) Have the outcome of the game determined by player's skill.
(2) Coin fall games may contain obstacles which if properly passed or struck by a coin, award additional tickets.
(3) If coin fall games have obstacles, operators must:
(a) Turn on the obstacles before the player inserts the coin; and
(b) Keep them on long enough to allow the player to attempt to strike or pass the obstacles.
(4) Operators may set merchandise prizes on the coins, tokens, or other surfaces in the game and if the prize is pushed into a hole or chute, then it is awarded to the player. All prizes must fit down the hole or chute.
