Bingo Pinball - this is a fine example of having good options and of a fine looking machine. The airplane and trees and the cabinet art are good. It's 1977 and these are the last of the breed for Bally. The games of the late 1970s were the most complex pinball machines of the time for electro mechanical. If you've ever opened one up or attempted to work on one of these, they are marvels of engineering. To service one of these back in the day must have been quite a chore.
Back to the game play. You put in your quarters, you are rewarded with 5 games and you chuck in another quarter because you MUST have all six cards and of course why wouldn't you go for the diagonals and potentially the corners, oh and maybe the Super Line - talk about building excitement !!!! Take my 25 cents please!!!! The ball pops out of no where, you pull back the plunger and send the ball high flying toward one of 26 holes. Yes, 25 numbers and the free ball return hole, oh my. A second launch and the possibilities start to build. Three, four and finally Five launches and you're crazy with all the potential winning combinations. Goose bumps I tell ya. Get 3 in a row, glory !!! Get 4 in a row and it's like your birthday. Could you possibly pull of the big winner and catch fire in a bottle at 5 numbers in a row? YES, YES you could - Christmas Morning as a 6 year old for sure ! But wait, that's not the end of it - you get to bet on your winning combination, WHAT !??!!? Are you flipping kidding me? I can go for DOUBLE OR NOTHING ?!??!?! You are joking!!! What a game, what a master piece of fun and excitement from Bingo. You can't do all this with a normal pinball and you certainly can't go to Tuesday Blue Hair Bingo Night and ask them to go for Double or nothing on your winning bingo card. Genius I tell you, positively genius. All this needs is an ash tray and a beer dispenser and you've got the best Friday night stay at home party ever !!! Put down the TV remote, get some buddies together with a $20 bill and see who can bring home the bacon. Bingo Pinball, don't be a hater!!!! Simple, easy to learn, great sounds, excitement, anticipation, hoping, wishing, cussing, fun to play, semi-HOLE-some (just leave all that mafia gambling FBI stuff alone), what's not to like.
Great fun. Fine condition, its old, its EM. Its a really nice example with loads of fun left in it. Come play and try it out.
