    Yes, I'm a late newcomer to bingos. I'm picking up a repaired (hopefully) Bally Spot-em. This is the machine from my younger days in Ohio. My question is: is there a specific degree of slope for bingo playfields or was that something left up to the owner/operator? I haven't seen any instructions that might have a number.

    Bally provided leveling guidance in their early user manuals. See the instructions on page 84 of the Beach Club manual:

    They advise making the cabinet bottom of the game parallel to the ground (assuming level ground). In other words, the correct slope is already built in to the game playfield.

    I am seriously considering adding a slight angle to my
    ball board.Since my Bikini is on carpet, I have an occasional
    ball that will get hung up on the board.
    This should work out OK for my set up.
