O. D. Jennings
O.D. Jennings "Sportsman" was released in February of 1934. This machine looks and plays like a pinball machine (because it is a pinball machine) but, Pays-out like a slot machine if the winning combinations on the playfield are achieved.
In January of 1935 it was renamed "Improved Sportsman" because Jennings made improvements to the "Sportsman" (improved cabinet and coin pay-out mechanism).
In September of 1935 Jennings also released a non-paying version of the "Sportsman" called "Hunter".
