?? So, How Many ??

 

Bingo Serial Numbers - A Quest

 

How many Bingos were there??

How many Bingos were there?

How many Bingos were there?

 

 

So how much did the mob (mafia) make!!

 

"A Billion Dollars - A Nickel At A Time"

 

…So, do the Math…

 

 

…and do it in the 1950s where you could live on $15 dollars a day…

 

 

1951-to-1980

365 x 29 = 10585 total days

1,000,000,000 / 10585 = 94,475 nickels per day

94,475 / 24 = 3936 nickels per hour

3936 / 24 = 164 nickels each hour

So, $80 bucks an hour, around the clock, for 29 years, hmmm,

 

 

laugh

 

 

so, now get that down to the 15-years _ the Heydays _ 1959-to-1966!

 

so, now get that down to an average 70% return to the player on the machines!

 

 

 

and wham!!

 

 

 

You are quickly looking at 550,000 nickels per day, per the bars being open 12-hours _ laugh!!

 

 

 

Ok, that is $2300 per hour!!

 

 

 

When a Steak-Dinner "for two" cost $5.00 USD _ laugh!

 

 

 

?? So, How Many ??

 

 

 

How many bingos were there!!

 

 

 

Here is our best clue to date:

 

 

In 1959, you could buy a steak dinner and drinks for two, for $5 dollars!!

 

 

 

 

Nashville, Tennessee

 

 

120,000 "payoff" pinballs!!

 

 

 

 

There are 50 Sates in the United States!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hmmm!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laugh _ Do the Math!!
