    I was wondering when Bally went to a solid state version(s) of their bingo's?

    #2 62 days ago

    In 1980 Bally manufacture a solid state six card game called CONTINENTAL. At this point in time Bally was going out of business with the bingos and sold all the Continentals over seas to a company. Not sure how many stayed in the USA.

    Also, in the 1960s, there were hybrid games where a second game could be coined that was played exclusively with a solid state board. These were the later 20 hole games.

    Games like
    London
    Bonus 7
    Super 7
    Safari
    And likely a few more I forget at the moment.

    Vic is right about Continental - that was the only fully solid state game that Bally produced.

    Thanks for the info folks. The last time I played on a bingo game was 1966!!!!
    I am looking to buy a machine some time soon. I had a chance to get a Hawaii.
    But I had never seen a 20 hole game. I understood that the Hawaii, Mystic Gate &
    Double Up were among the last machines before the solid state units.
    Back in the day the only machines I saw were 25 holer's.

    Here's my 1990's New Continental Golden six card electronic bingo manufactured by G.A.A in Belgium. This bingo can give a player a chance to win 25,000 replays, but can also take a players saving account.

    Quoted from Terry1:

    Double Up were among the last machines before the solid state units.

    Yep, that's correct. Then in the 70s, Bally moved back to 100% EM until 1980.

    Hawaii is also the heaviest bingo ever made.

    There's a thread here https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/some-nice-looking-bingo-pinballs-came-up-on-cl

    that you may wish to check out - we try to post games from around the States - 20 or 25 hole.

    20 hole games are quite different - I enjoy them, but many folks I know that are 25 hole players tend to shy away from them. They can be quite a bit harder than a 25 holer to maintain a good stable of replays.

    Quoted from Vic_Camp:

    but can also take a players saving account.

    I got a chance to play this excellent solid state game with Vic - and boy, he's right! You can employ all kinds of solid state tricks like coin multipliers. You can get in trouble FAST on this machine.

    almost impossible to find any Bally bingo's at all!!!!

    I was off on the number of bingo's the guy in Toronto has.
    It is 37. He also has quite a few Back Glasses.
    Some new, according to him.
    There is supposed to be a guy in Halifax with quite a few Bally bingo's.
    If there is any one out there that has a line on this could you please PM me.
    Thanks,
    Terry K
