Miss America Deluxe

The follow-on game to Miss America Supreme adds the possibility of scoring, on the second card only, the three and four number diagonal lines. The two 5-in-line main diagonals score on both cards as they always had.

There's some uncertaintly about this game because the manual has model 1151 printed on the cover, but there's no evidence that was anything but an error.

The first feature that mechanically moved numbers!

The numbers on the bingo card were on strips that could be moved one position by turning knobs/pushing buttons on the foot rail.

Usually, the numbered strips were the vertical columns of the card, and they could be shifted up/down one position. When a column was shifted up, the top number "wrapped" and became the bottom number. The bottom number wrapped to the top when shifting down.

Miss America introduced horizontally shifting lines that used two 5x5 cards next to each other. A number could be slid from one card to the other.

The third type of magic line is the cleverest. It is a horizontal line consisting of four numbers. The numbers would shift right through all four positions. When a number fell off the right side, it reappeared on the left. For example, here is the four possible magic line positions on Cypress Gardens:
