Bingo Pinball

OK, busted!


Ok, I never got back to this one, laugh, sorry, usually if I post a page without pictures or comments I try to come back and do so……


Now, I have only seen a few webpages that link back to this site (most of the world links to Phil, of course) and when I first saw these posts I decided to go ahead and point to them, brag a bit laugh _ I mean that is kind of Cool, right?


In retrospect, upon seeing Nick’s email today, I immediately realized that I didn’t identify them as I should have _ If I had been thinking, I would have recognized and acknowledged the posts _ I knew some sort of “bingo nutball’ had to be the one pointing back here, laugh!



Episode 207 - Williams Yukon 0

Oct 4, 2015

Continuing to browse Danny's site at, I found another oddity:

Williams Yukon.

This game allows for winning up to 100 replays based on the cards that you hit on a bingo-style playfield.

I am interested in seeing one of these one day - this game is not in IPDB, so I'm not sure when it was made, but I'm guessing in the 1950s or early 1960s.

It looks like a lot of fun, since you are able to choose a spotted card by landing in the 'Joker' hole (in the center of the playfield, similar to #16 on a Bally bingo).

Yukon is a 1957 Williams woodrail, a 5-Ball machine that kind of Rocks! _ What few references you will see, most all refer to Her as a “Bingo-Pinball-Machine w/no Flippers” which definitely applies and is common lingo amongst the Ole-Boys, because She is one of the Card-Games……


…one of the Joker-Machines!


…...and yes, She is ***VERY RARE***”


In evidence, I have about a bazillion photos if you want them _ Spanning 10-years of collecting and interestingly enough, they all seem to be of the same machine _ Hmmm!




Check out that Layout!


5-Balls _ 5-Shots _ Only 5-Cards _ One Free _ Running 9-to-Ace


Do the Math _ Toss in a Wild-Card


This thing Rocks!


This is a Nickel-Machine……     ……and yes, a Payout-Machine


William’s claim that they were Legit, was all Bullshit,


You can’t believe how many times payers “stepped up” and tried for an “Ace-High Straight Flush” in Spades!









_ i know i did, laugh _













Episode 206 - Sirmo Magic Screen Boardset 0

Oct 3, 2015


A divergence into solid state.  While browsing Danny's site at, I noticed he had some photos of the internals of the Magic Screen bingo manufactured by Sirmo in Belgium in 2005.


This is a solid-state bingo with a very interesting boardset - using what appears to be PC hardware in a pinball machine, including multiple LED and an LCD monitor, manufactured almost a decade before Jersey Jack's Wizard of Oz - simply astounding!


I'm looking forward to spending a lot more time on a solid-state bingo in the future, and part of the fun of any machine, for me, is knowing how they work.

Well, Nick is Right!

…and as we know, Magic Screen was just a “glimpse of things to come” _ with a great name _ a great tribute to the America Legacy!
