Smashing a Pinball Machine shortly after they were made illegal in Provo, Utah, 1930.

submitted by michaelconfoy

Some pinball machines used to pay out money, like a slot machine.

For this reason they were banned altogether in a lot of places.

I'm admittedly being pedantic - but that's a Bingo machine, not a pinball machine. The main difference being that there aren't typically flippers on a bingo. The idea was to nudge multiple balls into holes to get a Bingo to win. Winning often included a cash payout from under the bar! This is why they were considered to be a gambling device and were banned in many places.

The tipoff that it's a Bingo is the light grid on the back box.

Source: I filled and restore pinball machines. Bingos are the red headed step child of the family.

Electronic flippers were not invented until 1933.
