Bingo addict here!
Does anyone remember Italian made Bingo machines, back in the day?
I vaguely remember playing one in Europe. Can't remember if it was Zaccaria or one of the other Italian names.
What I do remember is that when starting a new game, the balls did not dump through a shutter like Bally but, instead, a mechanism would pop up through all 25 number holes, pushing the balls out to roll down the main playfield and the mechanism stayed out until all of the balls were back in their starting position.
I also seem to remember that the numbers on the back box bingo card were digital.
If anyone knows of a link to this type of bingo, I sure would appreciate knowing more about them and seeing pictures.
