Re: Bally Gold Cup Deluxe circa 1965

What kinds? Not a lot of people bother with them because they're hard to sell. On American Ebay they generally don't fetch more than $50.

Re: Bally Gold Cup Deluxe circa 1965

I regret I can't help you with a circuit diagram. I've got diagrams for similar Keeney and Games machines but they are much simpler - they don't rely on Bingo technology. It seems to me it wouldn't be too difficult to trace the wiring. If the Tilt light doesn't light and NEITHER do the display light...

Re: Bally Gold Cup Deluxe circa 1965

The "common switch to turn on the lights" that you seek is a contact on the Anti Cheat relay, which should be energized at all times unless its return circuit is broken by the slam switch. The other function of the Anti Cheat relay is to connect power to the Win Relay. If the A-C relay won...

Re: Bally Gold Cup Deluxe circa 1965

They are always on in normal use, but I THINK they may turn off in Tilt - similar Games and Keeney machines do. The machines turn on in the Tilt state, and come out of it on the first play. It will be one of the relays on the back door, which will latch on if you close it manually. If you're really ...

Re: Jamieson Roto-Pool, Electrodart etc. manuals, wiring diagram & schematics

You find a "government surplus store" where you'll find abundant quantities of "Post Office Uniselectors" and "Post Office Relays Type 3000". Or at least, I did when I was a kid, since there was a project calling for those items every couple of months in Practical Wirel...

Re: Bally Gold Cup Deluxe circa 1965

The "modern" electronic reels seemed sharp and smooth, seeming to tumble along There was a clever pattern to it. Each display had two sets of symbols - a real set and a teaser set. The teaser set had more jackpot symbols on it to give the illusion of liberality, but it would never stop on...

Re: Can someone ID this bandit please

The full name of the FOK is the Front OK Vendor. It used to have a mints vendor in the front. That's been replaced on this variant with a custom non-vendor front.

Re: Bally Gold Cup Deluxe circa 1965

In the (about) ten years since this thread was last active, I came across a Bally 'Mazooma Bell", which is a close relative of the Gold Cup, and thought it might be helpful to share some pics of the innards. These Bally machines are completely different from the more familiar Keeney and Games f...

Re: Bingolett..... help please!

Does your Bingolette not have a circuit diagram inside? Here, I'll post one for you in German I'm afraid. The six contacts at the end work the payout solenoid, as you should be able to follow from the diagram. The relay that self-sticks is the anti-cheat relay, aka the tilt relay. There's very littl...

Re: Bell-Fruit Gum Company: Fact or Fiction?

Frank - delighted to meet you! I well remember your song. I remember dancing to it at "The Ship" disco in Dymchurch the night I had sex for the first time with the girl who became my wife. That was a good song to be remembered for (and a good thing for me to remember it by). But I never co...
