Moved server to new hardware. Forgot to configure the mail daemon properly. If you sent in a question/comment around Sept 22-23 and didn't get a reply, please resend.
Sorry about that - you'd think I'd check these things after making changes ... unless you knew me.
It's all about bingos!Welcome to one of the ugliest sites on the web built by someone who did web stuff for a living.
We are talking about bingo machines here, mostly Bally, but with a few digressions into United and other manufacturers.
My main interest is the technical details and reference materials. If you are looking for lots of interesting reading and are tired of getting bogged down in the details, click over to Danny Leach's bingo site or Ray Watts site
Where's the little numbered balls?Wrong kinda bingo. We are interested in pinball machines that look somewhat like this thing.
They have no flippers, 5+ balls, and are, umm, "for amusement only" (yup, no gambling here...honest, really - well, maybe not).
If you want to get the historical perspective, check out the History link over there to the left. We've swiped articles by Russ Jensen and added some pictures. Also, Jeffrey Lawton (no, that's not me!) has published a book published by Schiffer cleverly titled "Bally's Bingo Pinball Machines", so it should be easy to find.
Here's as good a place as any for those obligatory little "what's new" images!
