As others, I have often wondered just how many of the bingos were built!

 

…I know that other folks like Keith and Joe have also looked at 100s of these machines, curious as I, and no one has really figured out anything – Laugh`

 

I like Keith’s spin, wondering if they might also tell us a little about Bally, about things like the numbers of builds, factories, shifts – etc`

 

One day Dennis mentioned that they might also help us pin down dates in history, when the law requirements changed- up – etc`

 

There are some interesting things` check out Bally Beauty – Neither of those are misprints!

 

Bally Continental – What!

 

 

2019`

 

If you have been following this website you know I have quite a few pages asking just “How Many Bingos” were there - Smile`

 

Ok, here’s is the best answer to that question yet:

 

BB Oct 29th 1966.png

Billboard Magazine October 29th, 1966

 

I was tracking Beach Beauty yesterday (Nov 21st) and re-read this article, and Wow`

 

…This is from Bally, and they claimed that they manufactured one-quarter of the 50,000 games U.S. games made each year`

 

OK, so as we know: There were literally were 10s-of-1000s of Bingos`

 

I noticed that there still are a few owner/operators out there – I see them on Bingo Butch’s forum, so I will start ask around again…

 

For now`

 

This may seem like a silly quest, but please send me your Serial Number and/or post it on the IPDB please – Thank you`
