My earliest recall of Vic Camp was his sharing the idea of “working to promote the games” – of “wanting to interest the next generation of players/owners’

 

Man, I thought that was Cool back then and I still do today!

This game here is really a Barrel of Fun 1961 six card bingo with a bootleg backglass in its backbox.As most people know operators or vendors would change the look of the game by installing these types of bootleg backglass to try to fool the law and keep their bingos up and running on location.Its a great player and you gotta love the cabinet design,it's so cool.

Shoot-A-Line

Click to display game

This one of a kind playfield layout design is not so player friendly. I remember playing this game on location back in the 1960's and wasn't able to beat it like i could most other six card games. I guess it was because i am use to the 25 hole standard playfield design that is on most of the near 100 different bingos manufactured by Bally from 1951 to 1980.The bowling theme is nice and the artwork/cabinet fits in most any gameroom collection.If you look closely at the numbers on all six cards on Shoot a Line you will notice they are completely different then the standard six card combination numbers.I was so uncomfortable playing this game on location because of that reason and lost some hard earned cash because of this. Not knowing the numbers combinations on the cards in the back glass made it twice as hard to connect with winning replays.If i had the extra space in my collection i wouldn't mind adding a Shoot a Line.Tough game to beat for sure unless you grew up playing this game.This game could be the black sheep of the six card family.Someday i would like to play one again though.

Bally Beauty

This 1952 woodrail is a beautiful looking bingo and a great player too.The three card action is fast paced and there are plenty of features in this game to excite any true bingo player.Super Scores,4 corners,Select a number and more makes this one of the better of the five three card bingo produced by Bally.Artwork is excellent with the babes standing proud on the backglass and nice coloring throughout the entire game.The game is smaller in size then the average bingo and mechanically sounds awesome with all the extra search relays clicking away during payout.Once again another game i regret letting go,but i needed to pass it along to another person that appreciates the wonderful feeling the bingos can bring to a collector or true bingo player.Play this game and you'll be hooked.

Nashville

Click to display game

In 1978 when Bally introduced this six card bingo to us players out on the streets we couldn't believe our eyes when we first seen and played a Nashville.It was a monster in size and weigh in at over three hundred pounds,which made it hard to shake or nudge.Bally had added a feature called the Magic Numbers.This feature blew our minds.As players we never seen anything like it on a bingo.By this time six card bingos had many more features then ever before and by adding another like the Magic Numbers gave us players a reason not to sleep at night.The Magic Numbers feature increased a players chances for the largest payout ever offered on a six card game ever and almost always made us players drop in the extra 9th and 10th coin to have it lit.

Once a pinball player understands how all the features work and learns to controll the silver ball to score replays onthis bingo it will be a keeper in their collection for a long time.Talking about features here they are. Nashville has Super Lines which light up at random or through the roll over button on the playfield when lit,Red Diagonals(7th and 8th coins),4 corners(random and rollovers when lit on playfield),Magic Numbers and Double or Nothing.This game is a fun player and easy to beat because a player has so many winning number combinations to choose from. During a 10 coin max deposit of $2.50 at the start of a game the top payout is 1200 replays which in the old days paid you back $300.00.Nashville is the second best EM six card bingo game ever.The best ever is the king of all EM six card bingos called Dixieland.

Ticker Tape

Click to display game

Ticker Tape was a favorite of mine when it was in my collection until i added a Bally "six card"Lite a Line, Nashville,Dixieland and New Continental Golden.

In 1972 Bally brought back the Yellow Super Line feature in Ticker Tape that us players so badly missed the year before in 1971 when Bally's six card Stock Market hit the streets.The addition of the the well known Yellow Super Lines made this game a instant hit amoung us daily six card bingo players and we became more addicted to playing like never before. Little did we know the best was yet to come for us six card players in the years that followed when Bally six card bingo games like High Flyer,Blue Chip,Nshville, Dixieland,etc started to flooded the 1970's right up to 1980.I spent many many hours playing Ticker Tape when it first hit scene back in the early 1972 and found out quickly that i could win more often then in the past on the older six card games that Bally produced.It was because of the added features that us six card players never had in a Bally six card bingo game before. Sure Bally had many other bingos that had tons of features in the past,but they were on all the other types bingos like magic screen,turning corners,magic lines,etc.Bally six card games didn't have many at all until the 1970's starting with Stock Market.

Ticker Tape is a great player with a quick six coin max,which allows a player to play more complete games then a muti-coin bingo games.This is a sweet player with the three features(Yellow Super Lines - 4 corners - double or nothing)and for sure will challeng your skills as a silver ball player.This six card bingo would be a nice addition to any pinball machine collection.

Stock Market

Click to display game

In 1971 Stock Market was the first six card bingo manufactured by Bally since the 1959 thru 1962 six card run.Back then the six card bingos that were produced at that time were Lotta Fun,Barrel of Fun (61’-62’),Fun Spot,(61’-62’-63’),Lite a Line and of course the 28 hole six card game Shoot a Line. Stock Market was much larger/heavier in size then the past six cards games and trying to shake and nudge my way around the game to beat it for replays became different.I remember seeing/playing a Stock Market the first time and I right away noticed that it didn’t no longer have the Yellow Super Line feature that us players shot for everytime we dropped a dime into a six card bingo machine.This feature was on most all the other six cards games from 1959 to 1962 and we players did miss it a lot.Bally made up for it by giving us players a new and exciting feature in this six card game called Stock Market. The new feature Bally gave us players was the double or nothing feature and 4 corners when lit (pays 5 in a line) which kind of made up for the lost of the Yellow Super Line and didn’t cost us players any extra coins either.

Stock Market is a easy bingo to learn how to play and understand, feature and odds payout too.It has a six coin max and it’s a five ball game(no extra balls) and it’s a tough bingo to beat for replays like the other six card games from 1959 -1962.Stock Market is a six card bingo game for someone who hasn’t played many bingos in the past and wants to add one to their collection of coin op games and learn about why we bingo collectors love these types of pinball machines.I had a nice condition Stock Market in my collection and enjoyed its simplicity as a player. Even though this game is easy to learn and understand how to play,it is very challenging to beat for large payouts.

Gay Time

Click to display game

This 1950's woodrail bingo is a exciting game to play.Having 4 moving lines and being able as a player to jump the ball from numbered hole to numbered hole across the top row of numbers 1 thru 7 is just awesome and the best features this game has to offer.Red and Yellow scoring feature,corners,two extra odds scoring,3 extra balls and other features set this bingo apart from some of the other early 1950's woodrail bingos. True bingo players will love this game because of the way a bad game could turn into a great game(gotta play it to understand what i mean). Bally enginerring staff did a sensational job thinking out want the player wanted in a bingo when they manufactured this one of a kind bingo. Gayety is the only other bingo that gives a player a chance to jump balls from one numbered hole to another,but doesn't have all the extra features that Gay Time has but still is a geat bingo. I sold my Gayety and missed it so much that i just had to find Gay Time to take its place since it had many more features then Gayety and that's what i look for in a bingo. It was amazing that in no time i came across a Gay Time for my collection(check out the pictures here on IPDB)what a great condition game i found too. It had a few minor mechcanical problems when i brought in home but is playing sweet now since i have gone through the game.I adore the great looks of this machine (coloring /artwork) but by far is a fantastic player for sure.If anyone ever has a chance to play this outstanding woodrail bingo then do so,but beware you might be looking to add this top of the line player to collection!

Continental

Click to display game

This was the last and final bingo Bally manufactured in 1980 after making bingos since 1951 and not many of the Continentals stayed here in the USA.Bally sold nearly the whole lot of 1000 bingos to a Manufacture in Belgium and this company and others still today are manufacturing electronic bingos. This game is the same game as the EM bingo called Dixieland except that it is electronic. I have a 1990 electronic called New Continental Golden that was manufactured by a company called G.A.A in Belguim and like it a great deal because of all the extra features it has built into it game play which is many more then the Continental. The Bally Continental is a super quite game because there isn't much moving mechcanical parts like the Dixieland EM and can rack up your in line winning very quickly and is also not as heavy as the EM bingos because all thats in the back box is printed circuits boards. This is without a doubt an enjoyable bingo to own and play.If you are a 6 card bingo player and want a light weight bingo thats super quite and can find a 6 card Continental that is still here in the USA then grab it.

Night Club

Click to display game

This 1956 nickel wood rail bingo by Bally has back light box animation called Magic Squares or what us players call the moving or turning corner numbers is a sensational player and a must for any serious bingo player or collector. I had a beautiful condition Night Club in my collection for over 5 years and played it constantly and for long periods at a time. Don Hooker with his genius mind once again did an outstanding job making this bingo such a challenging and fun playing game. Bally loaded this bingo with so many exciting features that it made it hard for a player not to get addicted to this game right away. The double, triple and quadruple scoring feature is simply superb and when a player gets a big win on this feature the replay meter sounds like a machine gun firing off. By this time bingo players around the globe wanted as many features Bally could put into a game so they including Before 4th or 5th ball and After 5th ball which meant a player could move all 4 magic square numbers which equal 16 total numbers. There is also two spotted numbers (2) and (18),extra ball in Bally hole number(16) rewarded a free ball when lit,4 corners pays 5 in a line and the 3 extra balls at the end of the 5 ball regulation game. I can not explain why these bingo pinball machines are so wonderful to us players who spent most of their youth glued to one of these machines. What I will say, is a person must give themselves a fair chance at learning/understanding how to play them first. Maybe after many hours of study a person will be relaxed enough to really become one with the machine to try his/her best skills at completing against and hopefully winning against these awesome pin games.

Dude Ranch

Click to display game

Played this cool mechanical sounding nickel two card bingo in Royal Arcade on Seaside Hts N.J.(FUNTOWN PIER)boardwalk back in the late 1960's. The arcade owner would pay you out in Cigarettes instead of cash and i rememeber winning a carton for a 100 replays.I also was lucky enough to find a DUDE RANCH in the basement of a dollar store about a mile from my home a few years ago in very bad mechcanical condition for $75.I restored it and played it for a while before sending it to its new home because i had to make room for a Bally Bikini. This game had a feature that no other early 1950's bingo had. It gave the player a chance to win in line on both cards instead of the standard one card only pay off. The select a number feature by way of the metal control knob on the front of the machine made this game a fun player and gave a player many more chances at winning replays.Bally added a super card into the mix which is also a nice feature to shoot for when your two larger cards are not helping you out.Its super line payout feature was icing on the cake if a player could score when it was lit. Over all just a beautiful looking/playing western theme bingo (which Bally really didn't make that many cowboy themed bingos).If you get a chance to pick one up don't pass it by!Another game i wish i kept for sentimental reasons.

Buckaroo

Click to display game

Here’s a wedgehead that is extremely popular and is a must for any collectors who seeks Gotttlieb wedgeheads. Tough game to beat and not so player friendly. I remember playing this game on location back in the 1960’s and took a lot of quarters from me without giving back many replays. Good money maker for vendors because as a player the game would almost always get you close to beating it for replays which in turn made you want to play another game. An attractive backglass animation along with beautiful vibrant coloring throughout entire game. Another wedgehead that is a simple game to understand the rules. Making ABCD top arch rollovers lights center rollover for SPECIAL. Having the 5 point spin dead bumper at the center of the top arch makes it a little tricky to get the ball to go through the center rollover SPECIAL when lit,so a player must have good shaking skills which is a requirement with any EM game. The pop bumper arrangement isn't the greatest and doesn’t keep the ball in play in pop bumper area to long, especially having the left and right 10 point dead pop bumpers in the corners which seem to die the ball out a little . I still get a thrill though when I have the top arch center rollover lit for SPECIAL and get that center pop bumper to knock the ball up and down through the center top rollover SPECIAL (pop,pop). The games best feature is trying to make all seven numbers buy shooting at the roto spin targets and even the best EM players find this difficult to accomplish which makes this game challenging. I have this game in my collection and when i do play it, i know it will be for more than just one game unless i beat it bad on my first try. The ball spends most of its game time at the lower section of the playfield and the main objective is to try to hit as many roto spin numbered targets as you can. A player can win a replay for the (1,2,3,4) (2,3,4,5) (3,4,5,6) (4,5,6,7) or that almighty quadruple win for the sweet sounding pop,pop,pop,pop, when a player has the 1,2,3( )5,6,7 and makes the number 4 to complete the 1 thru 7 sequence. Every time i am finished playing this game the palms of my hands are red and sore from shaking the game so much trying to beat it by score or SPECIAL. This is one game that puts up a good fight against a player even when a player is trying very hard to compete against it.

Coney Island

Click to display game

This 3 card bingo pinball machine with 3 extra balls feature was the 2nd game ever produced by Bally in 1951. The 1st bingo game ever produced was Bright Lights a 6 card game(no extra balls).The game is much smaller in size than most bingos because there just weren't that many features on this bingo to pack in the backbox and is easy to move around too. Fast pace action game with just 3 cards,but oh having the luxury of buying in on 3 extra ball makes this game an outstanding player friendly bingo and almost always gives a player some replays every game. Nice east coast summertime resort theme. Decent artwork for 1951 and attractive coloring throughout entire game with the roller coaster artwork on the cabinet.Come on it's named after the one of the most exciting amusement parks of the century called "Coney Island" you can't go wrong with this sweet playing bingo. The 3 cards on the back glass have all the same number combinations that all the standard 6 cards games have which makes this bingo a 6 card players dream game. If you enjoy shooting for 5 in a line which is the main objective on any bingo machine then this is the game for you. A good bingo player or novice will have a chance at shooting 5 in a lines frequently because of the 3 extra ball feature which a player has to buy in for at the end of the first 5 balls.This is a simple bingo to learn how to play and understand the rules. If you are in the market for a bingo and don't what a complicated game to play and want a bingo that is player friendly where a player can win replays most of the time then look no further. Great looking and playing wood rail bingo pinball machine. I have one in my collection and is more fun to play then most of my bingo because of its simplicity.

Show Boat

Click to display game

Must have played this game thousands of times. My grandmothers house just a few steps away from my house had a Show Boat in the basement for years back in 1967 that my uncle bought.I remember thinking what a great feeling it was to go there anytime(never refused)which was daily for a couple of years until my father bought me a pinball machine of my own for our house.

Now who would think a wedgehead with no plastics or sling shot kickers would be such a terrific player. I just love the playfield layout with six pop bumpers lined up perfectly for great ball action especially when the ball slips under the colored wire gate into the pop bumper on the other side.Once a player gets use to the uncommon flipper design which is just a joy to have on this easy to get the ball back to the top of the playfield area,rewards a player with that sweet six pop bumper arrangement for loads of points when lit and gives a player a chance at going down through the super fast triple side rollovers lanes which score 100 points exiting out onto the flippers for another skilled flipper shot.There is so much to shoot for in this game and the most important thing to accomplish is getting the ball to go through the colored gates for SPECIAL. First time a player goes through all four colored gates it advances the center rollover(B)to 200 points.The 2nd time through the gates lights one SPECIAL,3rd time through the gates lights two SPECIALS and the 4th time through the gates lights three all SPECIALS. Once all three SPECIALS are lit the center rollover (B)will score a player 200 points plus the three replays for having all three SPECIALS lit which can amount to consecutive "popping" from the knocker assembly.Now once a player has achieved going through the gates four times the real fun begins because anytime a player goes through the all four colored gates after lighting all three SPECIALS they are awarded another replay everytime they do it again. Sounds good doesn't it but there's more. Making A,B,C rollovers a player is awarded 200 points plus an extra match number at the end of the game. Yes, thats right two match numbers will appear at the end of the game giving a player a better chance for another replay.

The slim sleek cabinet design is beautiful along with the great artwork on the backglass and playfield make this game outstanding in a line up of Gottlieb wedgheads. As you might have guessed by now this is one of my favorite wedgeheads to play in my collection because of playability and sentimental reasons.If any wedgeheads lover really gives this game a fair chance to learn how to play and get use to the odd flipper design they will find out what a fantastic and wonderful a player this game is.

Bikini

Click to display game

Remember you must be able to know all the features of the games below that we are talking about to fully understand what is being said in this article and we are talking about home use..so here we go !

I just think number # 1 on the top of the list is Bally's Bikini because of the design of the "futurity feature" this feature really amazed all the real gambling bingo players back in 1961 and forced them to spend lots of extra cash to really reach a high level on the "futurity game" which wasn't easy to do to begin with. All the true bingo pinball players who at times have lost their full weeks pay in just a few short hard lived hours at a Bikini trying to reach that top "futurity game level" makes this bingo the king of the Magic Screen games like no other screen game Bally ever produced, this is just my opinion. It is the most challening feature to try to beat. I rate Bikini number 1 and my reason is because as a collector of bingos you want a game that is extremly challeging, full of features and it has to have that special feature to keep you interested in playing it alot and wanting you to come back and play it all over again and again and again. So having such a great option like the "futurity game" on a bingo machine which enables you to build up this fantastic game loaded with odds and features and with just one red push of a button away while you are playing all your regular games is tempting and addicting to true bingo players, plus knowing that you can play it anytime in the future and make a super big pay out with it is what you want for in home especially. Bingos like the magic screen games are not being operated on location and are really in the gamerooms of today only or in bingo collectors collections. You will see most bingos are 6 card games that are still being manufactured over seas today and are being operated too there. Six Card bingo machines are the best games for in home use, but thats another story. Bally was way ahead of their time in 1961 after only 10 years at manufacturing bingos with this "futurity feature" and to me it's the ultimate feature to have in home use because the real thrill with true bingo players is the gambling of winning money on these addictive games and thats what really draws a bingo player into dropping all his cash into these games. Bingo players no longer can get this thrill or urge anymore and can not play at any locations or get paid off ethier. Most bingo operators here in the states are all gone, but a few still are around and are hard to find. In home use you need that extra special feauture like the "futurity game" in the bingo you choose to have in your gameroom, so it better have something extra cool to keep you interested in wanting to play it....over and over again. Which in my opinion makes Bikini with the "futurity game feauture" the greatest and best game by far Bally ever produced making it my number # 1 pick as the best magic screen game in bingo pinball machine history . If you really know the features and how to play a Bikini or Lido then first try to reach the top level. Keep a record of how many hours it wil take to get it there and also count the money you have spent. It will be very interetsing once you know how hard this is to do. It could take days ,weeks, months, who knows.........That will keep you playing that number # 1 bingo of all time ! Thanks for being interested. Vic Camp...the player

Variety

Click to display game

Shooting the first ball is important and will give a player the best chance at making a 5 in a line win and that is what a player sets out to do everytime he plays the game. On VARIETY a player needs to study the large center card 25 number lay out, plus the super cards numbers too and fiqure out what number would be good to go for on the first ball according what features a player has lit on the backglass at the start of each game. There are so many number combinations to shoot for that it would take me hours to type them in. The bingo machines especially a game like VARIETY will take a player many hours to learn what numbered holes are good to land in on the first ball. Remember all depends alot on what features are lit. Here are a list of all the features the Variety provides to a player and why it is such a sweet playing bingo. Two Super cards...3 in a line pays 4 in a line. Moving lines...moves first 3 rows of numbers up and down. Four corners.. numbers pays 5 in a line. Star rollover numbers 10 & 25..(spots numbers 10 & 25 when the ball rolls over button located on the lower section of the playfield or light at radom.)Before 4th ball and before 5th ball..(must select moving numbers at that time)Extra balls...(player can buy extra balls after completing the normal 5 ball game making a total of 8 balls if the player buys all 3 extra balls giving a player a chance to light 10 numbers on the backcards out of 25 which is pretty good advange,but will cost you some nickels to do so. After playing bingo pinballs machines for over 35 yrs this game is without a doubt one of better looking and playing early 1950's nickel bingos Bally had produced,then again there are not many bad ones at all.

Lite-A-Line

Click to display game

This 1961 Bally 6 card bingo is easy to understand or learn how to play, but very hard to beat for large amounts of replays. Artwork is nicer than all of the 6 card bingos Bally made in the 1970's but this game doesn't have many extra features like the 1970's games did, thus making it a highly skilled and very challenging bingo to win free replays on. This bingo game is for a real good bingo player who has over 10 years of bingo pinball knowledge and skills as a player. It is also much smaller than most 6 card games in size and has a woodrail look to it even though this was the first year Bally came out with the shiny metal cabinet side rails and painted red metal legs. The girls on the backglass artwork which they look awesome dancing perfectly in line, remind me of the first bingo Bally ever produced in 1951 called Bright Lights. This 6 card bingo game was a real money maker for vendors back in its day and were in operation on routes for many years, especially since most all the vendors shut off the only feature Lite a Line had called the center spot number. This game is hard to find in all original condition since many were converted over or made to look different then original because they were gambling type games. Therefore because of this games longevity on routes for 10 years which lead to a lot of them breaking down from 1961 to 1971 Bally was forced to finally manufactured another 6 card game called Stock Market in March 1971 to accommodate addicted 6 card bingo players throughout this universe.

Dixieland

Click to display game

This 6 card bingo was the last EM bingo Bally produced. The game is loaded with features for a EM game and has a 11 coin max limit. The player could win $600.00 in a single 5 ball game for just dropping in the 11 coin max limit of $2.75. Let me explain how this happens. I was playing this bingo called Dixieland and just cracked open a fresh $10.00 roll of quarters. After shooting out 4 of the 5 balls while playing a game i needed the number 21 hole for a five in a line win on the sixth card which would pay me (300 replays) if i made it, plus i made the lit magic number which doubles your wins automatically which would pay me now ( 600 replays), then by chance the sixth card was paying a double-double card feature that was lit which would make the wins (1200 replays) if i made the number 21. Well, after making the 21 "like the ball had eyes on it" and completing a five in a line. I then had the nerve to double down on the double or nothing feature that flashes up at the end of the 5 ball game which turned my 1200 replays into 2400 replays. Thats right, the total pay out was 2400 replays at 25 cents a replay which equal a cash out payment of 600.00, not bad for putting in the maximum coin limit of 11 quarters into the game which is $2.75. This game is the very best EM 6 card bingo Bally ever produced and without a doubt the most fun to play. A bingo player will never get bored playing this 6 card bingo because of the unlimited amount of number combinations throughout the game to shoot for. This bingo will almost always give players a winning number combinations if you always drop in the 11 coin max limit.

This is a beautiful looking woodrail bingo and a spectacular bingo game to play especially because of the feature called Magic Pockets. The Magic Pocket features allows a player to move the ball from one hole to another hole or (back and forth)on any of the numbered holes on the top first row 1 thru 7 by a touch of a button on the lock down bar when this Magic Pocket feature is lit. This bingo also has the Magic Lines feature which allows a player to move the numbers lit on the first three lines vertically up and down giving the player many many options to make a winning number combinations throughout the one card. This bingo is one of my favorite one card games made in the mid 1950's. If you like woodrails and are thinking of getting a bingo for your gameroom or collection then this is the game for you. It really isn't that complicated to understand or learn how to play.
