Hole In One

OK, this is all speculaton. This game may never have been produced in quantity, and as far as I know only a backglass has been found. It appears to be a very basic six card bingo where rather than winning credits, you just got a good/excellent/superior light illuminated on the backglass. Whether you could win free games for doing that, I don't know.

The card spacing and offsets looks like a Stock Market, and the production year for those two are the same.

The game didn't have the standard replay register, but did appear to have a window in the backglass for a single digit where the replay register on Stock Market was located.

If you have any paperwork on this game, let me know.

Thanks to Will D. for the deskewed backglass image.

six-card games

The game type has 6 5x5 bingo cards on the backglass.

Most games enable one card per coin/credit guaranteed, but a few enable the additional cards on mystery intervals.

Individual numbers light on all enabled cards at the same time, and wins on each card were scored separately, although only the highest winner on each card counted (i.e. if you had two 3-in-line winners on the same card, you got paid for only one. If you had a 3-in-line and a 4-in-line on the same card, you got paid the 4-in-line amount).

To encourage maximum coins to be played, the payouts generally increased for successive cards. The max payout for a game is usually only obtainable on card #6.
