Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Machines are objects that Isaac can interact with to gain a variety of rewards.

Slot Machine[ | ]

Slot Machine

Walking up to the Slot Machine and bumping into it will consume one penny and spin the slots. The Machine then has a chance to spawn one of its possible rewards. Slot Machines appear naturally in ArcadeArcades, Secret RoomSecret Rooms, and other room layouts, and can be summoned using the X - Wheel of FortuneX - Wheel of Fortune tarot card.

If the Slot Machine is caught in an explosion of any kind, it will be destroyed, yielding various rewards (see below). The Slot Machine also has a 2% chance to self-destruct after inserting a penny, in which case it drops several random pickups or Collectible A Dollar iconA Dollar and becomes unusable.

The Collectible D4 iconD4 is unlocked when 30 Slot Machines are destroyed (via explosion or overloading) by Isaac.

(except in Repentance) When blown up in the Dark RoomDark Room or ChestChest, it will drop a collectible from the Treasure Room item pool, much like normal and golden Chests.

Collectible Lucky Foot iconLucky Foot raises the odds by a multiplier of 1.4x. On hard mode, the chances of winning at the Slot Machine are halved.

  • 10% chance to drop a random pill
  • 10% chance to drop a random trinket
  • 1% chance to drop a Chest
  • 1% chance to drop a Locked Chest

    • 35% chance to drop 1-3 random coins
    • 20% chance to drop a random heart

    • 15% chance to drop a random key
    • 30% chance to drop a random bomb

There is a 33% chance of an extra pickup grouping spawning if Isaac is holding Lucky ToeLucky Toe.

Furthermore, if the 78% chance to drop the pickup groupings is selected, there is a 33% chance for the following conditions to occur:

For debugging purposes, an init seed that spawns a slot machine that pays out a Dollar on the first attempt is 1236239571.

Fortune Telling Machine[ | ]

Fortune Telling Machine

The Fortune Telling Machine is similar to the Slot Machine. Bumping into the Machine costs one penny, which will either display a random fortune or special seed on-screen, or cause the Machine to spawn one of its possible drops. Fortune Telling Machines appear naturally in ArcadeArcades, Secret RoomSecret Rooms, Super Secret RoomSuper Secret Rooms, and other room layouts, and can be summoned using the X - Wheel of FortuneX - Wheel of Fortune tarot card. The Fortune Telling Machine also has a chance to self-destruct after inserting a penny, in which case it drops several random pickups or Collectible Crystal Ball iconCrystal Ball. (except in Repentance) Like the Slot Machine, Fortune Telling Machines will also drop a random collectible item when destroyed in the Dark RoomDark Room or ChestChest.

Blood Donation Machine[ | ]

Blood Donation Machine

Bumping into the Blood Donation Machine will damage Isaac. The machine will then pay out with 1-2 of any type of coin (only 1 in Hard Mode) or, rarely, Child's HeartChild's Heart. Every donation has a chance of causing the Blood Donation Machine to explode, giving either a Collectible Blood Bag iconBlood Bag or an Collectible IV Bag iconIV Bag. Alternatively, it can be destroyed with a bomb, which will cause it to drop several coin or heart pickups.

Notes[ | ]

  • On the floors before WombWomb, the machine will take a half-heart of health from each use. From The Womb and onward, the Blood Donation Machine will take one full heart instead.
  • It is possible to be killed by the Blood Donation Machine.
  • Once a Blood Donation Machine has given Collectible IV Bag iconIV Bag, future Blood Donation Machines will never pay out with it again for the rest of the run unless Blood Bag has not been unlocked yet.
  • It is possible for any number of Collectible Blood Bag iconBlood Bags to appear in the same run.
  • Collectible Holy Mantle iconHoly Mantle does not prevent damage from a Blood Donation Machine.
  • Invulnerability and shields can be used to prevent damage from it.
  • (except in Repentance) The Machine will accept Eternal Hearts first, then red hearts. When Isaac's health is at half a heart (or a full heart in WombWomb and beyond), the machine will drain Soul Hearts and Black Hearts instead.
  • (except in Repentance) While the Machine takes red hearts before Soul Hearts or Black Hearts, using a Blood Donation Machine will trigger Collectible Scapular iconScapular once Isaac is at half a heart. Leaving the room afterward and then reentering resets Scapular, allowing for further donations using Soul Hearts. Repeating this process after every Scapular activation allows Isaac to collect coins from the Blood Donation Machine until it breaks.
  • (except in Repentance) With Collectible Isaac's Heart iconIsaac's Heart, the Machine can be used without taking any damage.
  • (except in Repentance) Invincibility frames can be used to activate a blood donation machine for free.
  • (in Repentance) Blood Donation Machines will drain Isaac's last half red heart before draining Soul Hearts.
  • (in Repentance) Blood Donation Machines will ignore Eternal Hearts while Isaac has any other hearts.
  • (in Repentance) Blood Donation Machines may fail to pay out when used as Character Keeper iconKeeper or Character Tainted Keeper iconTainted Keeper, preventing abuse.
  • (in Repentance) If Isaac has Red and Rotten Hearts, the Machine will take Red Hearts before taking Rotten Hearts.

(except in Rebirth) Restock Machine[ | ]

Shop Restock Machine

The Restock Machine is an object added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth appearing commonly in ShopShops in Greed Mode, and rarely in ArcadeArcades, Black MarketBlack Markets, Crawl SpaceCrawl Spaces, I AM ERRORI AM ERROR rooms, Secret RoomSecret Rooms, and Treasure RoomTreasure Rooms outside of Greed Mode. Restock Machines also have a chance to spawn in ShopShops outside of Greed Mode, replacing the Donation Machine.

In ShopShops and Black MarketBlack Markets, each activation will cause the following effects:

  • Rerolls every item and pickup for sale.
  • Refills all empty Shop slots.
  • Item pedestals in the room that are not for sale will not be rerolled.

The chance for the Shop to be restocked increases as more coins are inserted.

In all other rooms, the Restock Machine will reroll any items present after donating enough pennies or blowing it up. It will not generate new items to replace the taken ones. It will reroll all items in the room even if they were not originally present (e.g. items from beggars).

Restock Machines can break after the fourth guaranteed reroll with a 50% chance for every subsequent reroll that should've been successful. This will cause them to drop a small number of coins.

(in Repentance) Bombing a Restock Machine breaks it immediately. When a Restock Machine explodes, either through bombing or extended use, it has a chance to rapidly reroll all items a few times. With timing, any item seen briefly during the rapid reroll process can be picked up, similar to acquiring items from Collectible Glitched Crown iconGlitched Crown. Saving and quitting in the middle of the reroll process will cause the items to stop rerolling upon re-entering the game.

(in Repentance) Restocking the shop in the Mirrored world will make items appear in the mirrored shop. The normal shop will not be rerolled, and subsequent rerolls will not match those of the mirrored shop.

(in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Mom's Dressing Table[ | ]

Mom's Dressing Table

Mom's Dressing Table is an object added in Booster Pack #2 of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth †. (except in Repentance) If Isaac has more than 8 items, it has a 50% chance of appearing in the starting room of a floor. (in Repentance) Mom's Dressing Tables have a high chance to spawn in Clean BedroomClean Bedrooms and Dirty BedroomDirty Bedrooms.

If Isaac bumps into Mom's Dressing Table, his appearance will be randomly changed such that only a few of his items are displayed.

Hitting Mom's Dressing Table with an explosive will cause it to break and drop 1-4 pills. There is a 1% chance to spawn one of the following items instead: Collectible Mom's Underwear iconMom's Underwear, Collectible Mom's Heels iconMom's Heels, Collectible Mom's Lipstick iconMom's Lipstick, Collectible Mom's Bra iconMom's Bra, Collectible Mom's Pad iconMom's Pad, Collectible Mom's Eyeshadow iconMom's Eyeshadow, Collectible Mom's Contacts iconMom's Contacts, Collectible Mom's Wig iconMom's Wig, Collectible Mom's Perfume iconMom's Perfume or Collectible Mom's Pearls iconMom's Pearls. Items that have already been generated and/or collected can be spawned again in this manner.

Mom's Dressing Table is based on this Steam Workshop mod by Sinsthar.

(in Repentance) Crane Game Needs to be unlocked[ | ]

Crane Game

The Crane Game is an object added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance. After unlocking it, the Crane Game can appear in ArcadeArcades and rarely in normal rooms. It can also appear in the Greed Mode Shop, replacing the Restock Machine. The Machine contains one visible item; after the Machine pays out, another one will be displayed. A grapple is above the items. The Machine pays out prizes from the Crane Game item pool.

Bumping into the Machine consumes 5 cents and activates the grapple, which will attempt to grab the item in the center. If it succeeds, the item will be taken out of the Machine and appear on a pedestal.

There is a 25% chance for the Machine to pay out, so the probability of the machine paying out after at most tries is . The Machine explodes after giving 3 prizes.

Alternatively, it can be destroyed with a bomb, which will cause it to drop several pickups.

Items can be obtained repeatedly from the Crane Game if they have not been touched.

Once all items in the Crane Game item pool have been picked up, the Crane Game will only dispense Collectible Buddy in a Box iconBuddy in a Box.

Leaving the room while the animation is still playing after winning will cause the reward to not spawn.

Unlocked by: Crane Game Defeat Mega Satan as Character Tainted Samson iconTainted Samson. Will be replaced with a Slot MachineSlot Machine if not unlocked.

(in Repentance) Confessional Needs to be unlocked[ | ]

Confessional

The Confessional is an object added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance. It damages Isaac with the same rules as the Blood Donation Machine in exchange for various rewards. It can be found in Super Secret RoomSuper Secret Rooms or Angel RoomAngel Rooms, but can rarely be found in normal rooms.

The Confessional has a 30% chance on Normal Mode and 25% chance on Hard Mode to pay out. This is increased by 1.5× if Isaac has Collectible Lucky Foot iconLucky Foot.

The following are the rewards and are evaluated in the order they are listed.

  • 5% chance to explode.
  • 3.3% chance to explode giving an Angel Room item.
  • Removes a Broken Heart, if Isaac has one.
  • 46.875% chance to receive a Soul Heart. Reduced to 9.375% if Isaac has Daemon's TailDaemon's Tail.
  • 3.125% chance to receive an Eternal Heart. Reduced to 0.125% if Isaac has Daemon's TailDaemon's Tail.
  • "You Feel Blessed!": Removes an active curse. For the current floor, increases Angel RoomAngel Room chance by 10% and allows Isaac to find an Angel Room even if he already made a Deal with the Devil. This effect stacks additively, going up to a 100% Angel Room chance at 10 activations.
    • If Isaac hasn't seen any Devil RoomDevil Rooms or Angel RoomAngel Rooms before and the fortune is activated once, the deal on that floor is guaranteed to be an Angel Room.

Alternatively, it can be destroyed with a bomb, which will cause it to drop pickups as well as a chance to drop trinkets. Despite its appearance, destroying a Confessional does not affect Angel RoomAngel Room or Devil RoomDevil Room chance.

Unlocked by: Confessional Defeat Mega Satan as Character Tainted Bethany iconTainted Bethany. Will be replaced with a Soul HeartSoul Heart if not unlocked.
