Bally's Yacht Club used a mechanism that was not used in any other bingo!

The numbers on the backbox are arranged in a 9x5 grid.  By default, the second through the sixth column of numbers are surrounded by a yellow border.  This is the card you are playing for.

If you earn the feature, you can move those yellow lines to surround a different set of 5x5 numbers!  This changes the makeup of each row as you move the surrounds.

In my mind this is the precursor to the Magic Screen - just less expensive!

It was likely confusing for new players, which may have been why it was never used again.
