In 1962, the Magic Screen games were kings of bingo production. During this time, Bally experimented with a new way to use the same mechanism - instead of sections that allow for different scoring, what if the player could control the makeup of the bingo card, one column at a time.
Seemingly a natural evolution to the typical ways that a player can control the makeup of their cards, this method was never repeated by Bally.
A single button game, another unusual feature of "The Twist" was that the player was notified what their next coin would do: advance one of the sets of odds or advance the 'magic cards' feature.
Another game I'd love to play one day.
