As long as slot machine have been using electricity to function cheats have been tempted to use electricity to cause a slot machine to payout. Today with electronically controlled machines there are a number of unique methods for trying to make a slot machine payout. Some of these devices/emp jammer delivered an electric shock to the slot machine, others are more elegant electronic devices that override the programming or disrupt the electronic circuitry of the slot machine.
EMP or Electromagnetic Pulses are pulses of Electromagnetic radiation that have the ability to disrupt electronic circuitry. High power pulses will destroy electronic circuits and low power pulses will cause circuits to behave erratically. It is this last result that the EMP jammer is trying to generate. When the EMP device is activated, the EMP that is emitted from the antenna will affect the unshielded chips in the validator.
CAUTION : THIS EMP JAMMER INVOLVES SEVERAL HUNDRED VOLTS WHICH MAY CAUSE HAZARD OR INJURY OR EVEN DEATH PLEASE DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. USE OF EMP DEVICE IS NOT LEGAL IN SOME COUNTRIES. I made this device only for educational purposes only.

this type of device is NOT new, it has been around for at least 40 years, the problem always has been the battery, Nicad’s were a big improvement, and now lithium makes for really high current pulses, saying that , they now are more dangerous than ever, ” to bodily harm ” you could be liable for damaging coin operated vending machines, and you could cause sever burns to yourself. PS, it is not that these devices go undetected, it is quite readily detected, and can be triangulated quickly by loop low frequency detectors. i am not sure why this is news ? antiestablishmentarianism ? read this carefully, if you disrupt important communication channels in the rf spectrum, you will be arrested and charged, and the charges nowdays are increasingly stiff.
