The first feature that mechanically moved numbers!

The numbers on the bingo card were on strips that could be moved one position by turning knobs/pushing buttons on the foot rail.

Usually, the numbered strips were the vertical columns of the card, and they could be shifted up/down one position. When a column was shifted up, the top number "wrapped" and became the bottom number. The bottom number wrapped to the top when shifting down.

bally:miss_america introduced horizontally shifting lines that used two 5x5 cards next to each other. A number could be slid from one card to the other.

The third type of magic line is the cleverest. It is a horizontal line consisting of four numbers. The numbers would shift right through all four positions. When a number fell off the right side, it reappeared on the left. For example, here is the four possible magic line positions on Cypress Gardens:
