Aside from being the most reliable and operator friendly, Royal's “Merlin” electronic control boards made their machines superior to those manufactured by Dixie Narco and Vendo within the same time frame. Its "Guaranteed Delivery System" detects beverages as they are delivered. If not delivered, customers are allowed another selection or an instant refund. The product dispensing design is less likely to jam. Product jams happen occasionally due to damaged product containers and or loading errors however they will happen less in the Royal Merlin’s. Selections may be independently priced in nickel increments $0.00-$12.75. It accepts $1.bills, nickels, dimes, quarters, pays change with the same coin denotations and was designed to vend 12oz cans.

This machine is capable of vending 16 oz. plastic water bottles by Poland Springs, Deer Park, Ice Mountain, Arrowhead, Ozark, and Zephyr Hills, as these brands by Nestle Waters offer a specially designed 16 oz. plastic bottle for vending machines. You can learn more about these vending bottles @ SellBottledWater.com.
