Coins & Credits

Related Config File Sections

MPF contains support for “coins & credits” which basically means you can configure your machine to require money to play.

The credits system has several features and options, including:

  • Configuration of different coin/price values per coin switch.
  • Tracking money and/or tokens.
  • Set price tiers (1 credit for 50 cents, 5 credits for 2 dollars, etc.)
  • Specify max credits and credit expiration times
  • Retain credits even when the machine is powered off
  • Get access to a “credits string” machine variable that will show the number of credits (or configurable free play text) for use on your display.
  • Flexible events you can use to show display items based on credits being added, insert coin messages, max credits reached, etc.
