Capitulation to the Bally format is readily apparent in Stars. The standard 25 hole playfield, backglass layout, and cabinet style are all Bally. The playfield arrangement of posts and springs is a bit different, which is probably how United avoided getting sued.

Internally, the game still runs on 110V, where Bally was primarily using 50V circuits.

Features obtainable by inserting extra coins/credits start on this game, and it kicks off the feature race between United and Bally. The diagonals on the cards finally score.

three-card games

This type of game has three 5x5 bingo cards on the backglass.

Some games enable one card per coin/credit guaranteed, others enable the additional cards on mystery intervals.
