I haven't seen items for Cal Omega for sale, but you can post a message here that says "Want To Buy" and list what you need. Then you ask someone on the NLG staff to move your WTB post to the Classified Ads forum where it will get larger reading and maybe someone will have the parts. Sometimes people will take a machine apart and sell the parts from it, so there may be someone that has what you need.

Most video slot machines have 2 pieces of front glass - the upper glass and the belly glass (lower glass) so you will need to say which glass you are looking for. The bezel you need, is that for going around the opening where the monitor is located?

Oops - my mistake, I was hoping it was the complete display and would work for this Cal Omega machine. Do you know where a suitable display can be obtained?

I would check in my local area for any video arcade business and call them. Most have a back room or building with older machines. Maybe someone in his area can help him or point him to someone that could. I would think that shipping a whole Monitor assembly would be costly. That's why I mentioned a LCD display using a converter box. This is things they do when the build out the multicade games.

Also I just realized that the machine is supposed to have a mechanism to give out coins. Where would I get that as mine did not come with any.

You might want to post pictures of your hopper and the plug or plugs. That might give someone a idea of what type you have. I think I would just post a new WTB Ad for your parts since this post has gotten long. Try see what you can find on the video game sight too. Someone there might have parts that you need. Have you looked on Craigslist in your area for video poker or video arcade games or parts. I see them post here sometimes. Worth a try.

From what I've seen of your cabinet it's more of a arcade machine.
A slot machine is in a metal cabinet and very compact.

That type of cabinet would probably have a printer to print out a winning ticket.
Maybe it would spit out tickets like a the amusement parks.
The opening in the door is for the coin acceptors.

I have reached out to CGT to see if they have any records on it. From what I have read Cal Omega was bought by CEI which was bought by ucmc which was bought by cgt.

just my thoughts,,,,

Way back when you first posted about your machine and showed us a photo it looked to me like it might be a Cal Omega mpu circuit board that had been installed into an arcade gaming cabinet. The Cal Omega machines are not as familiar as other brands so I may be wrong about all of this. But slot machines have an idplate that shows the manufacturer name, model number and serial number of the machine, sometimes they are removed but usually not. The idplate is required by gaming regulators. Also, slot machines are made to be rugged because they are sold for use in a casino 24/7, so they are made of strong metal, or metal covered with plastic for appearance. Your machine doesn't have an idplate and the outer cabinet portions looks like non-metal construction, similar to arcade game cabinets. And your machine has an after-market power supply instead of the original power supply from Cal Omega.

Also, your cabinet is made so that the screen will be tilted back instead of mounted straight up and down. Because of the height above the floor of the player pushbuttons on your machine a tilted back screen infers the player will be standing in front of the machine, this is a typical arcade game thing. The only casino slot machines that are tilted back are bartop machines and slant top machines, both of these are made for playing when the player is seated. Casinos don't want to make their customers stand up, it gets tiresome and the player will soon quit playing.

These are the reasons it seems to me that your machine doesn't look like a slot machine made for casino use. That doesn't mean anything bad, just that it may be difficult to find a manual or any documentation on the machine itself. If I am right then what documentation you will want to find is on the Cal Omega circuit board itself, and the game software that is installed. Since it is operating ok with the substitute monitor from your other game then you just need to get a monitor that will fit the opening. If the monitor will move forward enough in the cabinet you may not even need a glass to cover the opening. A lot of video poker machines don't have a clear glass covering the screen, the crt screen itself is right there flush with the opening in the machine cabinet or door. There may have never been a bezel or glass on the cabinet, that's probably why there is no bezel or glass on it now. Back when the crt display was removed to use on another machine they most likely wouldn't have taken the bezel or glass, so if it ever had them they would still be there.

The aftermarket power supply you see isn't used for anything but there is a big transformer at the bottom of the cabinet

This game is a gambling game but has a knock off switch instead of a hopper.  A computer monitor that will display CGA input would be comparable.  That being an early computer standard DB 9 connector CGA resolution might be hard to find.  The original monitor was a standard arcade video game 13 inch monitor.  Try to find one that has a good tube bright color, good focus and not burned bad.
