Hi Wayne, good to hear from you,
Thank you for the pictures _ Wow! That is a very good-looking
Bingo _ Looks to be in great shape!
Pricing these things is always difficult _Really, timing has a
lot to do with the sales price _ What city you are in, how is the economy,
and/or if you find someone that really wants that specific machine and/or
that flavor - 6-card - etc......
You do have a 6-card, which is nice, since so many players
love those games...... You also have a relatively newer Bingo, which also
helps _ being able to say it is in great mechanical and physical condition
are two huge selling points.
If you had a programmer, the keys, and/or any documentation -
The price also increases _ Obviously this is a Belgium game and that is
going to make some buyers a bit leery _ "Hey that is a l lot of money
for something I can't maintain" _ etc
If you are in a big city and/or a county with a large
population, your odds of commanding a good price escalate.....
but these things are like cars, you ask for a lot more than
you are willing to accept, and hope for the best,
you are going to be hard-pressed to get $2000, only the
"never opened - still in the box" Bally machines have fetched
those kind of dollars,
although said, a few "man I have to have that"
buyers have paid those dollars for that "perfect game they use to
a $1000 is a reasonable expectation if you are in a good
economy and large population, especially if you have the extra goodies for
the machine - and "by keys" I refer to the keys with the epprom
code in them,
a large pop helps, because it becomes a "local
purchase" and people can pick it up near by and not have an additional
a box like yours _ I might ask for $1200 and get a feel of the
"current interest in the game"
if someone offers you $xxxx, think about it...... do you like
it and want to keep it - does that cover your expense and investment - etc,
Thank you again for the pictures, I really appreciate you
taking the time to send them in!
Good Luck & Best Regards,
