_ Retention Ratio _


A "bingo" pinball machine does not have flippers; therefore, the result of play is dependent on the design characteristics (gravity) of the game. The

player cannot influence the path of the ball which precludes the element of skill from affecting the final outcome of play. It is alleged that "body english" is an act of skill which will influence the final outcome of play. Body english is defined as hitting the device slightly to change the path of the ball as it rolls

down the playing surface. The effect of body english can be neutralized by setting the "tilt" mechanism to a very sensitive mode. In this mode, a player

would not be able to alter the path of the ball without tilting the device; therefore, bingo pinball is not a game of skill.
