What the heck is this thing? It's about the simplest bingo Bally made. It has four cards, and each card is a crossword puzzle. The playfield has holes with letters and a couple star holes which boost the scores. A max of four coins/credits can be played, with each coin enabling a puzzle card.

The object is to make holes to light three or four letter words in the crossword puzzles. Words may be contained within bigger words (e.g. "ant" and "rant"). Look at the flyer.

Each card scores independently, but only the longest word per card scores.

If someone tells you bingos are complex, show them this machine - less in the guts than the average flipper game.
