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 play"

 

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 shipping cost.

 

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,

 

Danny
