The gameplay is no more than 'pick-a-colour', without any of the fascinations like a roulette wheel or a turning pointer.
If it embodies the design described in the patent grant, then it has the most complicated variator I have ever come across, involving a pulsed magnetic clutch!
It may account for why everybody's heard of Jamiesons...

Yes, I'm sure that accounts for its relative obscurity. Hot on its heels came a bunch of similar but more exciting ideas, such as...

Bally's Spinner of 1962

Streets Colourama of 1963

Whittaker Brothers' Roulette of 1964
