Show Boat

United produces their first six-card game, and mimic the ballyhole feature...but make it better. Lite holes in the 14-17 range will release an extra ball if you land in them when the feature is lit.

Double and triple scores renamed to special score and super score, and any/all of the six cards could have the score multiplier lit.

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.
