    Hey there Butch and Bingopodcast,

    I just pinged you and have been loving reading through your posts and the posts of so many others. I wanted to post my machine because from the photos I've seen, I'm not sure the cabinet I have is like everyone else's Bally High Flyer. Can you comment on the pics attached. Is this a hybrid machine or something else ? Thanks.

    Hi @corkgiants - that's a High Flyer in a Wall Street cab. Flying through the city at night!

    #255 6 months ago

    Here is a photo of my High Flyer, produced just a month prior to yours. It has the original cabinet artwork. At some point, they must have switched the cabinet artwork from the original to Wall Street artwork. I can only assume that Bally was getting near to the end of the High Flyer run and decided to use up some already-painted, old stock cabinets for Wall Street, which was produced in 1974.

    Robert, I think the repainted serials tell the story. Someone cut new serials in the wall street cab and touched up the paint. Doesn't appear factory.

    I didn't even notice that the serials were repainted / touched up!

    Also note that original Wall Streets did not use the large oak frame back boxes. The frames were the small Maple type and the backglass slid out from the sides.

    Yeah, that's a weird touch for sure. Was Wall Street a squat head without the 'bump' like Ticker Tape? Then it'd be a total repaint... but an odd one.

    #260 6 months ago

    Thanks for the replies guys. I think I like the Wall Street design better. As Nick just said, it certainly gives the machine a nice story to tell. Probably some combination of truth and tale will make it to the finished product. Thanks again !

    Looks good won't be a problem getting going

    #262 6 months ago

    Here's some photos of some bingos I picked up in eastern Colorado about a year and a half ago. They'd been sitting in a barn for almost 40 years after having been retired from service when the poker games took off in the mid 70's. I'm finally getting around to restoring some of them, many will be parted out eventually. I'm nearing completion of a Parade, the only one I've ever seen in all the years I've been doing this. Good that's a walk out basement!

    Here's a couple shots of some of the totally restored games. All of these have since been sold.

    #265 6 months ago

    The barn find was:

    I just ran across this photo to give some perspective of the work ahead. Restoration has begun but there's a lot to do.

    Congrats! Great game (looks like your backglass is nice, too)!

    Quoted from bingopodcast:

    Congrats! Great game (looks like your backglass is nice, too)!

    Thanks! I saw that I can get a replacement from http://www.coos.net/bingo_e/ for about $200, but I think I will restore this one as its not too far gone.

    I've enjoyed your podcasts. I hope to add two Miami Beach machines to my collection later today!

    #271 3 months ago

    Be aware that the $200 option does not have mirroring. Only their full glasses have the mirror lines.

    Thanks for listening!

    Miami Beach is a really neat game with a unique feature (the curtains). Having a pair will be helpful for repair of one or both.

    #272 3 months ago

    They're both supposed to be working 100%, so one to keep and one to sell?!?

    #273 3 months ago

    Even better!

    Your going to enjoy hopping holes and moving lines on this great playing Bally Bingo Machine. I love mine.

    Nice pick up...

    As close to a bingo as I've got - does this one count?

    Hybrid bingos. I've owned all four at one time or another. Four Corners, Disk Jockey, Hong Kong and Starlite. I think they're OK. Nice art on all of them.

    I can start a game, but it doesn't pay out credits when you win. It did when I played it at the seller's place, so I'm not sure whats going on.

    I found a loose wire that I need to repair, and some of the fingers on the reflex unit had been intentionally bent up so as to not make contact. Was this done by an operator to reduce payouts?

    When I put in a nickel, the game automatically starts. I can keep adding nickels for extra features, but the red button on the face of the cabinet seems to do nothing. Shouldn't the nickels show as credits on the counter, giving me the option to push either the red or yellow button for extra features or extra balls?

    I am unable to try for extra balls, as the yellow button doesn't do anything either.

    NicoVolta will be at my house on the 16th to fix some EM pinball, I sure hope he can help with bingo!

    If anyone has a suggestion, I will definitely take it!

    #278 3 months ago

    Dunno if he's a bingo guy, but the basics are the same.

    Here's some stuff:

    1) reflex fingers bent: without contact some of the portioning of the game is defeated and stuff won't step up or trip with coin play as easily. On Miami Beach, it will still trip & step up, it'll just take more coins.

    2) coin play: if there are coins being used, no credits are added to the counter (unless a different game or a change was made to the wiring). You only get credits on the register if you win!

    At that point, you can press the red button or yellow button instead of inserting coins.

    3) the extra balls only function if you've shot your fourth ball. At that point, pressing the yellow button should highlight extra balls. Dropping a coin at that point will play for a chance at getting one or more extra balls. It can sometimes take many nickels to get an extra ball. It depends on the reflex position and the position of various other units. After the coin flash finishes, extra ball will no longer be lit. Press the yellow button before dropping the next coin or the game will reset.

    #279 3 months ago

    Thanks BPC for that good reply to my question! In the bingo simulator program, which I greatly enjoy, you can play for extra balls before the game even starts - perhaps this is an error on the programmer's part?

    I'll post a report on NicoVolta's visit, and our success (or lack thereof) with the bingo.

    #280 3 months ago

    Oh, interesting! Yes, that's an error. There are certain very early games that allow you to play for an extra ball along with other advantages, but you cannot play for eb alone on any game (aside from Leader and Bolero).

    Quoted from balzofsteel:

    Four Corners is a neat unusual game. It's not seen much and might be a bit rare. I'm not positive but I don't believe there were a whole lot of them made.

    Read that on Danny's site some time ago. Good they got a few things really wrong there, or it would paint the bingos in a worse light.

    Also, curious choice of games to highlight in '79.
