Love Pilot operates by placing a nickel in the machine's coin slide. The a flurry of lights begin to flash through the silk screened glass. All the while the customer is attempting to turn the "pilotís wheel" to influence which light stays on at the end of the play cycle. In fact, the wheel determines nothing.
