Just saw this game come up on an auction results thread and looked up pictures of it. It's a pinball-bingo hybrid. Very cool. Instantly thought of Nick and the other bingo guys around here.

It DOES have flippers, they just blend in well! You can see the credit counter at 40, might even go higher!

How much is it?
Looks awesome. I'm assuming all woodrail to.

Auction said it went for $80. Wish I was there!

Looking further on IPDB.org (I don't own this machine or title): That's funny, the bottom of the cabinet is nearly completely empty. All the relays and mechanics are under the playfield and in the head. Even the transformer is mounted vertically in the back of the head.

$80?!? That's one of three bingo-esque games that Williams made - Hong Kong, Disc Jockey and Four Corners. All beautiful games. Four Corners is a couple steps above.

Gottlieb had a small series of trap hole games that worked on a similar principle. Chinatown, Shindig, and Watch My Line...

There's a reason! They wanted to attract bingo players. On each of these games, there are multiple ways to win replays, and at least one way to win a large number of replays (sound familiar?)

Williams also produced one 'card-style' bingo with their alternate playfield layout called Yukon, and one true bingo called Long Beach. Long Beach was available in the Multi at York, btw!

That was a good buy, whoever got it.

Many early woodrail games have next to nothing in the cab - transformer mounted in the head, steppers for scoring - etc. Not really a need to have a ton of hardware under the playfield where you can't reach it if you need to without unscrewing and lifting the playfield.

Impulse flippers.
Beer in one hand allows flippers to be both active when either flipper button pressed with the other.

Update- Ebay listing is not the pin pictured above. This one on ebay is in much better shape.

Cool. Love the sideart. Wonder why the playfield says "Wisconsin" under it, can't read the rest. United had a game called "Wisconsin" a few years earlier.

You'd think for $1,500 they'd at least dust the front off and install some new rubbers to remedy all those chewed up ones! Just a few posts too, only a couple of bucks if that.
