    Quoted from Spyder138:

    Bally Signal listed for sale in Sacramento. $450. sacramento.craigslist.org link[quoted image]

    Signal, Sr. and Signal, Jr. are very good prewar titles. Nine sequential, mechanical railroad flags activate to advance balls, accompanied by a pleasing railroad crossing bell. Aesthetically attractive Harry Williams design, with that "just one more play" addictive quality.

    This one appears to be the larger version (Signal, Sr.). While the junior version is more compact, the senior version is a good choice for collectors who don't mind the larger footprint.

    The senior version has a more substantial scoring card casting. This example has the correct legs and the original coin door. At $450, it's an excellent value.

    If I didn't already have a Signal, Jr., I would be buying this game.

    oh yeah, me too.

    Signal is a great game, any version.

    Just found a Waldorf Sr deluxe. The photo is a pic from the database not actual. I will post pics. Getting closer to my grail a Stoner baby Leland. Please sell me one

    Question, the game has 5 plastic balls in it currently though calls for 10. I did not think plastic balls were original. Does any know the type of balls that were original and who sells those? Also where could I find any documentation to read upon it like an operating manual?

    Thanks. Geeked to have found this. It was an hour away from pintastic of course the wrong direction.

    Cool looking game. If the balls that are currently there seem like a proper size then just stick with that size. Measure it with a digital caliper.
    Marco specialties can sell you metal balls of all sorts of sizes. https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/BALL-STEEL?VIEW_SIZE=60&view=card&sortOrder=SortProductField:totalTimesViewed
    For some games I prefer using marbles, and you can get many sizes here https://www.moonmarble.com/c-47-bulk-marbles.aspx
    but there is more variance in marbles, so I measure the ones I get and settle on 10 that are most within a desired range.

    Nice backglass, decent playfield.

    Sean, I've wanted to play this game for some time. Looking forward to it, if you're able to have it ready!

    #721 11 months ago

    How does the scoring work on Watch My Line? I understand the lines giving replays, but what's up with the scoring?

    Is this the final game to be made with a figure 8 playfield, popularized by games like Five Star Final?

    Quoted from bingopodcast:

    Incentive! :0) Since there are no inserts on this game it should be doable...I did have to fix some damage around some of the gobble holes and so there's touch-ups to do, but the inserts are what normally take alotta time. I've got the damage fixed - haven't started the touch-ups, but it's minor. Should be able to deliver...

    I'll have to LYK...I rarely try my games before tearing them apart - I know this is not the suggested method, but I suck at rules.

    So I decided what the heck and reached out to seller to see if he'd take cash at pick-up (allowing me to view it and deal in person) and to se how soon he needed it picked up. He definitely wants it picked up sooner than later. We did some back and forth conversation, and I offered him $800 and I'd come out and get it this weekend. He was all for pickup this weekend- but was concerned as he had see this game sell for $4500.....so he politely declined which is fine, but it does give you an indication that he is really looking for a LOT more. My feeling is he prolly would have passed at 1500...

    I'm suuuuuper sceptical he saw a Skill Parade sell for 4500.

    So it's just about the weekend, he wants it gone, yet it's received zero bids? I would maybe follow up with dude and see if he wants to change his mind. Either way, I'm sending him a $300 offer.

    At least maybe if you do that, he will contact me back and take my offer...

    The picture on the pinrepair site was taken from the eBay listing. Many images on that site come from various 'for sale' and elsewhere postings.
    It was not a scam as I now own said game.

    someone posted a project machine of a 1949 Bally Hot-Rods... for $2500 USD. I don't know what some people are smoking but this was in the same group where someone tried to post a Super Mario Mushroom World for $6000, then lowered it to $4800... I guess some people hope to find a sucker more than they want the space.

    Here's the entry at IPDB: https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1246
    Has anyone played Hot-Rods before? It's a variant of the old "all 5 balls roll down at once" horse race trade stims, but with contemporary-to-the-time replay gambling logic thrown on top.

    You select a horse (1-7) with the front knob, insert a coin. 5 balls are loaded in the shooter lane and you send them all out at once.
    Winner slots at the bottom are numbered 1-7, plus a left and right "Blow Out" drains (which you can see someone has taken out of service in one of the playfield photos)
    Get one ball in your bet hole, it's 3 credits. Get more balls in? 5, 8, 20, 40 credits awarded. (good luck...)
    You can actually play up to 7 horses, one coin per horse, but why?

    Let's look at the math...
    Assuming we play one horse, assuming the drains are in play, each ball has a 1 in 9 chance of landing in our winning horse hole (0.111 repeated)
    The odds of NOT winning? 8 in 9. 8/9 = 0.88888 repeated
    The odds of 5 outs? (8/9)^5 = 0.5549
    Therefore the odds at least one WIN? = 1 - 0.5549 = 0.445

    I'm not even going to look at the odds of the higher payouts for multiple balls in the winning slot, let's look at the expected values:
    5 outs: 1 coin bet, 0 coins won, net of -1
    Expected net value: -1 * 0.55493 = -0.55493

    not 5 outs: 1 coin bet, 3 coins won, net of 2
    Expected net value: 2 * 0.4451 = 0.890

    The sum expected value of a single try? -0.55493 + 0.890 = 0.335

    So just playing with one bet, you are expecting an overall net gain per try.

    If you were to remove the outlanes and the odds for a win become 1/7, the net expected value jumps to 0.612!

    This MUST have been a poorly received machine because it's not set to make the operator any money!
    If you reduced it to only 3 balls played, THEN the operator would start having profit.
