Phil Hooper hosts these pages, contributes to them, and reviews and comments – Very Cool`


_ The Bingo King _


I have been visiting Phil's site for some 15 years now and I am constantly surprised on just how much information and detail he has recorded and shared about these machines _ Don't let his main page fool you, there are 100s of pages hiding behind that, holding a technically library unequaled anywhere!


No one knows more about these games than Mr. Hooper!

Bingo Trivia: Phil Hooper announces the launch of his website on _ Year 2000


announce: bingo web site

as usual, it's not done, but I might as well throw it out there and see what, if anything, people want to know about.  On the bright side,

 a lot of the flyers and award cards are there for the taking.


eventually the site should have enough info to allow anyone with a voltmeter, a jumper wire, and some duct tape

to get a bingo running and keep it running.


Over time, we'll cover how the things actually work in gory detail, and throw in some of the amusing operator "enhancements"

we've seen that are guaranteed to benefit the player (yeah, right).




p.s. if anyone has seen the pile of machines in salt lake city, drop me an email



Being on Phil's servers offers me a unique perspective and easily lets me see that not only has he posted an Amazing Collection of Bingo-Detail, but he freely nurtures the games and supports as many others as he can!


I have a lot of respect for this Man! - He not only took a personal interest in these games, but he then stepped-up and created a legacy - Openly sharing his passion, knowledge, and resources with the World.
