Thanks Vic. Yours is also a great collection. I noticed you have a Wlms. Lady Luck. Boy do I regret selling mine! Great game! That 1 card point enclosed bumper will drive you nuts! One of the few games (along with Wlms. Full House and a few others) where you actually WANT the ball to drain during the game!
Here's a pic of the all original condition early 1950's Bally Variety that use to be in my collection. It went to a good home and a great owner.
I bought the game from a house in Allentown PA from a women who said her husband was a operator back in the 1950's and 60's. She told me that they had it in their home back from the 1950's. It might have been on route for a just short while in its lifetime.
Quoted from DennisDodel:
What else do you have there MrBally? I see a Miss America Supreme. Love the Miss America games.
Unlike you pro's, I only have four. Wall Street, Tahiti, Malibu Beach and Miss America Supreme. I would love to have a Bounty, Miss America DeLuxe, Lido and a better six card like Nashville, Dixieland or Hi-Flyer.
Have three, no room for any more. All have been restored. The Sun Valley was in very bad condition when I got it. The County Fair was restored in Holland and the Silver Sails cosmetic work was done by a mate. I've just gone through it so everything works as it should. I really enjoy playing them, there is so much more to a game on a bingo compared to a flipper.
I've since added the correct cigarette holders to Sun Valley.
Some really nice art on the Silver Sails playfield.
Notice the operator added a ball roll tilt in the top of the head, just visible top right. Must have had trouble with punters trying to add a little side lean.
Here is my entry into this,yes its a bingo machine,no flippers.A restoration work in progress.It was headed to the scrap heap but it was so unique I had to save it.Everything works,horses all work perfectly.Someone cut out all the gambling portions of this a long time ago.Pity...
What's with that big prize card? Is that from NJ where that type of payout is legal?
I sold a extra Lite a Line i had in my collection to the owner of the haunted house( Mr. Nickles) that burned down i think back in the 1970's on the Wildwood boardwalk. Mr. Nickles put the Lite a Line in one of his arcades and thought he might strike it big with people wanting to play bingo pinball and get a prize/points from his arcade.
Well, even after my buddy who's in the coin op business here in NJ put 4 of his Dixieland 6 card bingo for a 50/50 split the turnout to play the bingos was poor. So we went and got the 4 Dixielands back and i asked Mr. Nickles for the sign to bring home to my bingo pinball room.
Here's a picture of the all original condition Bally Variety i had in my bingo collection for over 5 years. Man was she in excellent shape all around. I am glad it stand proud now in Joe Newharts sensational collection in PA.
Can't load pics for some reason, but have a Bally Broadway and Gayety in the current
line up (restored & playing). Also have a United Showboat and Bally Beauty in storage.
Would like to find any Florida themed bingos (Key West, etc) and a magic screen game
someday to round out my smallish collection.
Wow. These are some beautiful machines and serious collectors. I am new to the bingo pinball world having picked up my first (non working) GAA Magic-Dixieland a couple of weeks ago. Very limited documentation and no schematics to speak of has made this very challenging so far. I am praying that someone here can help me since I have exhausted all resources. I was able to get the security errors fixed (mostly reed switches on doors not closing). But I still can't get the game to start. All I get is an alarm on start up with the HELP message and 0C or OC on the display. There is no such error code in the table, but when I go through the game setting I see a 0C which is the credits for the coin acceptor. The machine only has a bill acceptor (According to the person I bought it from that is the way it has always been).
I have been to Danny Leach's site (very informative, but no luck). If anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it. I would hate to junk this machine, since it is in otherwise great condition (plus it's heavy as hell to move).
Thanks in advance.
Quoted from Vic_Camp:
Does the game have 10 balls in it?
In order for the game to start all 10 balls must be in the ball trough.
I had 11 solid state bingos. Nine of them were Miss Bowling Turbo's and two were New Continental Golden's.
I have a home-made manual of these machines and made extra ones. If you want one, i could mail it out to you. I think GAA is the manufactured too.
There is a posting here on pinside with a ton of information about a New Orleans 6 card solid state bingo. Did you see the posting ? If not, find it and check it out. Its a must!
Can you post some close up detailed pictures of the game?
