Blue Chip

Bally finally found a way to get more coins into the cash box on a six card game. They took Wall Street and made the spot numbers feature something that you could only get on mystery intervals after depositing the first six coins/credits to light all the cards.

Of course, Wall Street sometimes spotted the center numbers while playing the first six coins, so this isn't looking like much of a bargain. To add insult, Wall Street could spot the center number on more than one card, where Blue Chip would only spot one card, though it the player cound choose which before shooting the third or fourth ball.

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.
