    Friend offered to sell me 2 really nice bingo machines, these things have any value if both are in great condition?

    Are you buying these just to flip them? If so, sure they have value but finding someone
    (like me) that appreciates them will be more difficult than most other pins.
    They are heavy, harder to fix and game play is very different from regular pins.

    Bally's 1961 Lido is a sought after and desirable Magic Screen game. It is at the top of the list with Bikini, Golden Gate and Silver Sails and can cost anywhere from $500 to $2500 depending on condition/restoration.

    As for the Miss America.....Bally made four of them. The first was made in 1957 and is called Miss America 57'. The other three were Miss America 75', Miss America Deluxe and Miss America Supreme. These four Bally bingos can sell from $100 to $1500 depending on condition/restoration etc.

    Bingo pinball machines are only collected by a small percentage of the pinball community and are not easy to sell and only get the higher end prices from serious collectors and there are few of them out there.

    Go to bingocdyn.com for prices of bingos that sold in the past.

    yeah I don't have any interest in keeping them, not my thing. they look like they are in wonderful shape so I thought I might pick them up.

    You've only posted pics of the Lido, which does look ok but has been repainted and has a secondary coin door installed. Without pics of the MA, we can't tell you which one.

    I'll give you $250 for that Lido if it's within 300 miles of Detroit, Michigan assuming it is complete mechanically & electrically.
