ebay.com link: like

#102 5 years ago
Quoted from bingopodcast:

pittsburgh.craigslist.org link
7 Sirmo New Orleans and 3 Banco Old Brussels solid state games in PA. $309 each or $2500 for all.

If I were closer I'd take one of these.

#104 5 years ago

This is also cool: ebay.com link: 1950s Scientific BING O RENO Coin Op Arcade Bingo Pinball Machine Backglass

Perhaps when I travel to Indiana to pick up that Stardust, I'll pick this up too.

#106 5 years ago

This from zacaj on the Project Pinball thread:

mystery six card bingo, Reading PA: reading.craigslist.org link $175
Condition: "Back glass playfeild cabinef look good no flippers. buyer must try and get working i cant figure it out"

#107 5 years ago

Same link as above - appears to be a Frolics(?). Repainted cab. Has the reinforced metal siderails.

"Bally "Sea Island" bingo pinball, complete, good overall condition but needs work. This is a "magic screen" game. Moving/downsizing, no space or time to keep my projects!"

On Portland cl asking $150.

#111 5 years ago

Sea Island is the only magic screen with position 'H', another red section.

I've been tracking bingo deals across the US for about a year now, and screen games in Portland area are hard to find (on CL anyway). $150? Someone snap this up!

Also Ballerina Nick.

Whoops! Yep, Ballerina also has position H

#115 5 years ago

atlanta.craigslist.org link This one can be had for 200 or less. I've spoken with the seller but one bingo project is enough for me.

#116 5 years ago

My Bingo Vacation is now $750 ( down $150 I think). It is outside Detroit. Either it sells or I donate it to xxxx.xx.xx.xxxx organization. I know I know...the,"donate or give it to me" responses may likely hit this thread now. I, regretfully, do not operate in that manner/fashion If I change my philosophy on the matter, such as this, I will update this thread accordingly

Peace and best wishes to sll Pinside viewers!!!

Frosty out. 1...2...3...yep, out

It's gone. Was it a Bally or an United "Tahiti"?

#119 5 years ago

Bally - the United is harder to find for sure!

I don't often ask for help but I can use some bingo help from the experts! There are two bingos for sale in Phoenix:

Manufacturer: Bally
Game/Type: Big Time / Bingo 1 Player
Features: Trap holes (25), Rollover buttons (2). One Card, 2 Super Cards, 5 Magic Lines. (From IPDB)
Month/Year: November 1954
Production: Unknown

Condition: Appears to in good condition.

Manufacturer: Bally
Game/Type: Dixieland / Bingo 1 Player
Features: Trap holes (25). Six Cards, 11 coin max, Double-Double Feature, Magic-numbers, Diagonals (From IPDB)
Month/Year: August 1978
Production: Unknown

Condition: Appears to be in good condition.

Cost: Make offer
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Link/Contact: phoenix.craigslist.org link

I would like to add one to my collection if only because I want to see how these things tick. I don't want to spend a lot for a bingo. It means I can't buy a pinball.

My questions for you:

What are the values of these?
I have seen a video of Big Time. I'm not so keen on adding coins until you get the features you want lit. What do you think? Is this a pain or a plus? I know that these can be modified for single coin operation, but I wouldn't want to make that mod.
The only bingos I have played were in Las Vegas in the '80s. They had 'magic screens.' I really like this feature. Would I be better to wait for a bingo with a magic screen or would the Big Time or Dixieland satisfy my bingo itch?

If anybody else would like these, by all means, go get them. I'm only interested because they appear to be in good condition.

#121 5 years ago

Still selling my Bingo Vacation. Due to personal issues...my wife and I would take $600 firm. I have a $600 offer in Indiana but machine is outside Detroit, Mi and I do not know how to prep for ship nor would a low price machine, like this, be worth shipping.

PM for details. I will, of course fund Pinside what they are due, if it sells here. I am taking the lazy way of posting for sale. Did it earlier in bingo threads. Sorry if it violates rules. If it does I will make an ad.

Peace all!

#122 5 years ago

Pecos, cool to see you get the itch!

In non-working condition, just a couple hundred should do the trick. Big Time's moving numbers feature is quite different from a magic screen. If you really want a magic screen, I would hold off for now. How far are you willing to travel? Not a ton come up in AZ. Keep this in mind. When working, 400-600 should do.

As far as single coin operation: this is normally only seen on the six cards. There's a reason for this - modding a Big Time to use a single coin would eliminate some of the skill needed to play. If the game automatically gave you all five magic lines and both super cards, I think you could get bored quickly.

To play these games, you need the 'higher stakes' of multiple coins or button presses (in my opinion). Just an opinion!

I might suggest Dixieland for you, though, if you would prefer guaranteed features. Each coin (11 max) is guaranteed to give you a feature. Again risk/reward for all 11 coins. The six card play is quite different from the magic screen gameplay. You have many more opportunities to win, but with no extra balls, you have to make your numbers.

Happy to discuss further. Both of those games are actually quite great. Five magic lines and two super cards mean that you have the ability to reposition all numbers on the main card and shoot for the super cards if you mess up.

Extra balls bring in more of the gameplay you're familiar with.

#123 5 years ago

Thanks Nick! Nice overview of the two bingos.

The $200 price point is exactly what it will take to get me interested. This decision would be a lot easier if there was only one bingo, not two! I like the magic screen bingos, but not for $400-$600!

Quoted from bingopodcast:

Pecos, cool to see you get the itch!

Any mechanical gaming device gives me the itch to investigate further. Strangely, I have never had any interest at all in EM arcade games. Of course, pinball machines are top on my list, but EM slot machines and bingo machines have always been there in the background to tempt me!

#124 5 years ago

Oh the screen games fetch more than that 400-600 (well, a good portion of them), I was referring to Big Time and Dixieland when working.

Ok. Still trying to unload my Bingo Vacation outside Detroit MI. I played it for hours today. Decided to take a photo or two of it with the LCD monitor on. I noticed that nowhere on the internet is a pic with the screen on...strange. Anyway, $600 and some coins will go to Pinside of course if sold to someone here.

FrostyMug, that's interesting - are those red LEDs chase lights?

Do the ABCD buttons correspond to the Magic Squares in an EM bingo (where the numbers rotate clockwise once per button press)?

Are there other "modes" or games that are loaded on that that change the bingo card?

Appears the playfield and cab are less deep than a standard EM bingo? Does it use 1 1/16" balls or 1 1/8"?

As far as other games available, found... something in SC: greenville.craigslist.org link

#128 5 years ago

All yes except I am not sure about ball size. I am having a bad pain day. Will probably be in bed until tomorrow. I will get calibers out and measure ball dia. then friend and post.

I know what you are thinking Nick....... Also, that button setup on the front rail is nice. Room for more also.

Sorry for the lack of posting! Just checked out CL today, nothing is floating out there. There was a Yacht Club (super fun game) in Twin Cities but the post was removed by the time I checked it out.

Will check out eBay later on.

$100 Silver Sails near Portland

#133 5 years ago
Quoted from balzofsteel:

$100 Silver Sails near Portland
portland.craigslist.org link

Looks like one to many balls in the lower cabinet....I count nine. I wonder how that happened. For sure this could cause the game to not work properly.

#134 5 years ago

Funny how balzofsteel found the game with too many balls . Good eye Vic. I count nine too.

Hey, check this out - United Manhattan in Spokane for $125! Looks in pretty good shape. BG lifting in a couple spots (beautiful artwork on this game).

This ad looks new near Buffalo, but I think it's the same Bally Beauty. Great BG!

When someone builds their own carrying case for their bingo schematic, you know they're serious (Golden Gate on eBay for $1200):

Miss Universe in CA on eBay (same seller as the Bonanza - same price, too) - having played Miss U last year at York, I've decided that it's not the game for me - you have to pump in so much money to get a chance to win on this 3 ball game. It would help if I was a better player, but the playfield layout is completely different! Only 18 holes instead of the standard 20 or 25. Some neat features, and if it was a 5 ball, it would be better, but it's an interesting experience regardless (in my opinion).

Starting Bid $350

#142 5 years ago

Another 6-card with a $325 B.I.N.:

It's a "Shoot-a-Line"...but I can't see a manufacturer name.

#144 5 years ago

The 'Circus' is actually a Barrel o Fun.

The Shoot a line is actually a modified Stock Market with a Twist playfield.

Yukon is a rarity - not precisely a bingo, but one of the card-themed offshoots. Would love to play it.

#145 5 years ago
Quoted from bingopodcast:

The seller had it listed on Mr. Pinball for $2500 (!) in October 2015.

#146 5 years ago

I remember playing a Yukon at the recent Texas Pinball Festival. It was located in far back right corner - last machine.

#147 5 years ago

Neat! What did you think of it? Did you win?

#148 5 years ago
Quoted from minnesota13:

Do you mean a Williams "Yukon" flipper pinball machine, or the very scarce Williams "Yukon" bingo-type game that has been listed on eBay for some time? I would be willing to bet it was the fairly common flipper game, not the bingo.

#149 5 years ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

Nope, the machine did not have flippers, was a poker playing card based bingo machine, it had a manual ball lift.
