AbstractA device for locking a slot machine handle for causing the rotation of reels until a coin is inserted, is disclosed. When a coin is inserted, a solenoid is activated to move an interlock lever from a first position to a second position. When the interlock lever is in the first position, it holds a locking pawl in engagement with a locking member provided on the same shaft as the handle. When the interlock lever is brought to the second position, it is held in this position until the handle is returned to the initial position. With the interlock lever in the second position, the locking pawl is allowed to be disengaged from the locking member by a spring.
