...and you haven't bought it yet?

#5 5 years ago

No price listed on this one. Maybe this seller is giving it away, too!

#13 5 years ago

Here's a fancy "Night Club" bingo that's been sittin' around in Washington a while:

Also, a Miss America in TX:

...a couple bids on it, up to $250 with not quite 24 hours remaining.

Quoted from NoQuarters:

Space is maxed out with my Flipper games.

Cue BingoPodcast. I can hear it now, "Flip that ratio, you'll be better off."

#34 5 years ago

Hey, that's a coincidence. I just heard about this today:



Quoted from bingopodcast:

Not a bingo, but bingo-esque card themed trap hole game - Bally Twin Joker

...I'm pretty sure this is the "other bingo" the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas has. So, y'know, there's a chance to play this on location before you buy it?

Quoted from RyanClaytor:

the "other bingo" the Pinball Hall of Fame

Confirmation (just dug up my vay-cay pix):


...and the other one (for those curious)...


...at least that was the PHoF Bingo (and Bingo-esque) line-up as of Summer '15.

Coinopwarehouse is selling NOS playfields on EBay for many titles.

That's interesting info!

Quoted from Bribo13:

I like the Bingo games as a novelty, they are kind of fun to play but not for a long time.

Quoted from dasvis:

Yeah, they would have been a LOT more fun back when you could (hopefully) win $$$$ on them.

Obviously the gambling element was part of the allure, and that ties into a fascinating part of pinball history, but after listening to well over 300 episodes of the OP's podcast:


It's pretty apparent there's some depth to these games. In fact, when you have a few minutes, you might even read his article about why a Bingo machine is a deeper gameplay experience than Twilight Zone:


I am not a bingo pinball owner, but I must say, I'm intrigued. It's why I'm following this thread.

It just strikes me as an odd place to come and voice opinions like the ones listed above. I doubt you'd go to a concert and start belittling the artist on stage. At least, I'd hope for that base level of consideration to be exercised. I'll hope the same regard for decorum can be observed here.

Curiosity is one thing. If you'd like to know why and how these games are so enjoyable, I'm sure there are plenty of folks in this thread who could speak to the complexity of these games and discuss the enjoyment they've derived from owning and playing bingos for many years. But to come in here declaring things like,

Quoted from Bribo13:

...they are kind of fun to play but not for a long time.


Quoted from dasvis:

...they would have been a LOT more fun back when you could (hopefully) win $$$$ on them.

...doesn't seem to add anything constructive to the conversation.

Here are the two machines that I will be bringing to the York show. They are among the most rarest bingos ever made.

Oh, man. So glad I'm making this year my first York. Thank you for bringing these, Bingo Butch. Looking forward to meeting you in BINGO ROW!


Quoted from Captive_Ball:

This really needs to be posted here...for those that can't make the show, but want to show off their love for the BINGO machine!

Thanks, Captive!

Just picked up a game from a fellow yesterday in Indianapolis who has a High Flyer Bungo for sale ($250). If you need more info, let me know. Here's the description:

My Bally High Flyer has been sitting in the project queue taking up space for quite some time now and my video games always get more love. I think it needs a better home. It's an EM bingo pinball from 1977. It was sold to me as "non-working". I don't have the keys so I don't know the condition of the components inside. The game won't reset when plugged in so I'm guessing the reset coil is bad or the motors just need a good cleaning and lubrication. The back glass and play field are in great shape, the cabinet exterior is solid (no water damage) and will brighten up with a good cleaning. The chrome legs are pitted and need new leg levelers. This would be a great project for someone wanting to dabble in EM games or use the parts for other Bally pins from the same era. A pickup truck or open trailer preferred since I don't have the keys to remove the head from the body.

Quoted from Captive_Ball:

~~~~~Mr. Pinball Classifieds~~~~~
Double Up (bingo)
Miss America 75 (bingo)
Miss Deluxe (bingo)
$1200 or $400 each
Here is a chance at owning a 100% working bingo that was gone through by a 40 year pinball repair tech. These 3 bingos are from his private collection and are all in nice original condition and are located in PA. He would like to sell the 3 together as a package deal for $1200 and would throw another Miss America Deluxe and Miss America 75 part games for free. If the package deal doesn't sell then we will sell each bingo separately for $400 each. Prefer local buyers in driving distance for pick up. Pictures will be provided to serious buyers only.

Beaten again. Nice job, Cap.

Hi Bingo Folks,

Thanks to a semi-recent bingo hand-off, I've got a pretty rare backglass on my hands. It's an immaculately screen-printed, oddly altered, Bally "Ballerina" backglass. Here's what the original is supposed to look like:

image-22 (resized).jpg

...and here's what mine looks like:

17077881_1385736101471725_333875296_n (resized).jpg

...and some close-ups:

IMG_20170621_133705 (resized).jpg

IMG_20170621_133723 (resized).jpg

...with a nicely registered mask (albeit slightly bulb worn):

IMG_20170621_133801 (resized).jpg

I preferred the original glass illustration to this odd reproduction, so I now have a Coos film of the original glass (which looks quite nice, btw).

All this to say, I'd like this interesting piece of history to go to someone who appreciates it, so I'd like to give this away to someone in the bingo community. I'm also NOT interested in shipping it. However, I'll be at the Pinball at the Zoo show in Kalamazoo, MI this coming Saturday (April 21, 2018). SO! If anyone can make their way to the Zoo show or find a buddy who is going, I'd be happy to meet and hand this off to you.

Hope this finds you all well,
Ryan Claytor

#699 3 years ago
Quoted from DennisDodel:

Please consider posting photos of your glass to the Ballerina listing on the IPDB.

A fine suggestion. I just e-mailed Jay, as the IPDB uploader is down (I'm guessing because of the ongoing maintenance.)
