Bingo Pinballs “Suck” – Are you with me?

 

I like this 2003 response from Dennis ~ Where you could still play Bingos out in town and

“it takes a ton of skill to keep a play in play without flippers” ~ How true`

Bingos are still being operated in the St.Louis area at a nickel a pop and bring in enough money to support at least three families comfortably. Within a 10 mile radius of my home I can play a "County Fair", "Beach Time", "Miss America", "Bikini", "Laguna Beach", and "Sun Valley". The other half of the take has been paying the rent at these locations for years. I must say that the operators in this area keep their games in tip top condition. In almost 40 years of bingo playing I have rarely seen a game down. These games are so much fun. You just have to take the time to understand the rules. And it takes a ton of skill to keep a ball in play without flippers!  Ned.....
