    anyone interested in these precursor machines to the bingos? I know of a few machines in Nevada, including some very early ones like Preakness and Grand National, that are available for next to nothing.

    I think the current list is Preakness, Grand National, Victory Derby, and Jockey Club.

    All are payout machines with good cosmetics.

    they have the usual inconvenience with the one-balls - the big base makes moving them harder. Well, except Preakness, which is on legs.

    I'm sure the Pacific Pinball Museum would be interested, and I suppose I'm interested in seeing that happen. Where are the games? Can you PM me?

    I am, but that's a long drive. PPM is a good place for them!

    I don't know if this is what you're talking about, but there's a game at The Pinball Hall of Fame that's basically the same as craps, but with a ball and a wheel - so, craps meets roulette!

    That's a really interesting game - made by Don Hooker, the Bally bingo designer. The ball returns to the player multiple times after scoring. Played it a few weeks ago.

    No, these are one ball horse racing games. A popular type of gambling pinball made in the 1940s - no roulette wheel. You pump in money trying to get a good 'horse' and good odds, then aim your plunge and nudge into the correct hole, if you can. There's no second chance, though - you get ONE shot. I find them very fun, though I've only played one.
