Description of the gameplay of the 6 card Bally Ticker Tape and the current status of my project Gigi.

I talk with my friend Clark Fraley, who is a technician for an operator.  Clark has been with me on a couple of pick ups now, and is a great guy to boot.  

 

Interviewed after we moved my new bingo and played for a bit.  I hope to have him on again soon(ish) to discuss his upcoming acquisition!

Another new pickup!  Gigi described - gameplay to follow after I shop it.

I describe how to perform adjustments on an EM game.

I interview Phil Hooper, creator and maintainer of http://bingo.cdyn.com, the Internet's source for technical information on Bally and United bingos.

 

Phil conducted this interview on 4/5/15 via email.

Ramps, lighted scoring, DC-driven coils, multi-level playfields - all were children of the 1930s, and continue to inform today's games.

Apr 11, 2015

What's the point of shaking a machine?  How much is too much?  How do you know?

Are bingos games of skill or games of chance?

Can older games make you a better player?
