~ Like the Splin Michigan, this Splin Golden Game falls into the “Major Find” Category ~
This game has so far eluded the IPDB and as far as I can tell, these are the first Internet pictures other than the flyer
That’s the Post-2009 Splin Logo up in the top-left corner and you can just make out that the PF is a Continental-Type
Phil’s site lists 6 pre-2002 Splin games and they all use this same playfield that is also used on the early Sirmo & Wimi Bingos. Once I knew where to start looking for extra detail on the new Splin games.
I found that Tetra was also the fabricator of this game
~ As we learned the other day, to the best of my knowledge: ”Fabricant” denotes the designer / builder of the machine ~
To date I have found 2 patent applications for this company directly related to bingos, but I haven’t been able to find any solid business detailed yet – As soon as I do I will post a page. Either Splin is providing these guys the technology to fab or these these guys are a new player using Splin’s Sales Recognition.
Might be Splin is pushing it’s sourcing to less expensive offshore regions.
The closest association I can find between Tetra and the gaming industry is a Taiwan company names Tertra Games.
~ To date I have seen pictures of 5 different machines ~
This game has all the advanced 6-Card features of the Belgium solid-sate games: Super-Line, Double-or-Nothing, One Ball,
Magic Numbers and 4-corners Scoring – The unique feature here carries the bingos name: Golden Game and appears to be quite elaborate:
I finally Spotted a second one of these bingos here in 2012
game in uitmuntende en zeer verzorgde staat.
