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 danny.cdyn.com, 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).

So,

 

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 danny.cdyn.com, 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!

 

“Imagine the possibilities” of a “computerized bingo” - the number of features-and-options is truly Endless!

 

…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!
