S/I Card Reproduction

A major redesign of the internal circuits, and switching to 50V operation brought this machine closer to Bally games than ever before. United kept their trademark spell-name feature, but now use roll-over buttons to light the letters, rather than holes in the playfield.

It's not all Bally-like, though. In this game, two coins/credits will light both cards, but the two cards don't score independently unless another feature is lit.

two-card games

Two 5x5 cards are the primary scoring cards on the backglass.

A common feature on this type of game was to have horizontal magic lines spanning the two cards such that numbers could be shifted from one card to the other.
