It's all about bingos!

Welcome to one of the ugliest sites on the web built by someone who does web stuff for a living.

We are talking about bingo machines here, mostly Bally, but with a few digressions into United and other manufacturers.

My main interest is the technical details and reference materials. If you are looking for lots of interesting reading and are tired of getting bogged down in the details, click over to Danny Leach's bingo site or Ray Watts site

Where's the little numbered balls?

Wrong kinda bingo. We are interested in pinball machines that look somewhat like this thing.
They have no flippers, 5+ balls, and are, umm, "for amusement only" (yup, no gambling here...honest, really - well, maybe not).

If you want to get the historical perspective, check out the History link over there to the left. We've swiped articles by Russ Jensen and added some pictures. Also, Jeffrey Lawton (no, that's not me!) has published a book published by Schiffer cleverly titled "Bally's Bingo Pinball Machines", so it should be easy to spot on your favorite bookseller.

Information for each game (like flyers, score/instruction card scans, mixer blueprints) is in the machine listings.

What's new

Here's as good a place as any for those obligatory little "what's new" images!


Alan has branched out from bingo videos to a bally EM slot video, so the video site has expanded too.



A new paper listing page is available. It's a handy way to see what stuff is available in the machine resources, and I kinda needed an easy way to see which schematics I haven't posted yet (umm...only barrel-o-fun).



Franz's site in the netherlands is now (ok, since january...I'm way behind on updates) available in english.



coos is also available in english. He's making the metal lockdown bar parts, though currently production is one-off, so costs are high. Also shows results of the newer technique of printing directly onto glass. Eventually this may be the way all backglass repros are done as the costs come down and the method is refined.



Got a beat to death playfield? Chris over at is making playfield overlays now.
