Night Club

The follow-on game to Broadway, Night Club added a quadruple score multiplier and further delayed the time at which the numbers could be rotated until after the 5th ball was shot. This was very helpful, as you could shoot all five balls then rotate the numbers to give you the highest score.

The yellow and red colored lines did not score separately, if you had a win in the red and yellow lines, you get paid the higher of the two.

magic squares games

Some of the numbers on the bingo card are are mounted on wheels (behind the backglass), and pushing buttons on the foot rail allows you to rotate the wheels to rearrange the numbers into paying combinations.

A 1 9
19 4
A 9 4
1 19
The wheels have 4 numbers mounted on each. Here is the standard layout for magic square A. The first table shows the "home" position of the numbers, and the second table shows the numbers rotated one position:

The 4-number squares were initially used in the corners of the card, so people also called the feature "turning corners".
