Description

This game is for 1 or 2 players. It has a manual ball feed leading up to the launching plunger but it only contains one ball.

The head of the machine depicts a woman in a red blouse and blue dress with brown hair and a gold necklace dancing on a blue table. A brass band plays on the bottom left side while people dance on the bottom right side. Scoring indicators have 3 motorized digits, 1's, 10's and 100's.The thousands place is a light which comes on behind a number 1 painted on the glass if you can score that high.

The play field has five chutes at the top. The center chute is worth 50 pts, on either side of center are 30 point chutes with 20 point chutes at the outside. There are 4 pop bumpers below the 5 chutes. The pop bumpers are yellow, red, green, and purple. They are 1 point unlit, 10 points lit and are lit when you strike one of four targets of same color. The targets that light the pop bumpers also control the lighting of four colored side chutes which are worth 5 points unlit and 50 points lit. When all four colored pop bumpers are lit a 100 point "bonus light" comes on in the center of the bottom portion of the play field between the right and left side kicking rubber bumpers. These kicking rubber bumpers have a 5 point or 50 point chute behind them where the ball in play can be lost. The player who lights the 100 point bonus is awarded it when the ball is lost. This resets the four pop bumpers back to 1 point and the 100 point bonus light goes out. Three swinging targets, 1 point unlit and 10 points lit are located left to right accross the center of the play field. Only one swinging target is lit at any time. They are lit by chutes, 5 point unlit and 50 points lit, located on either side of the three swinging targets. Each time you pass through one of the side chutes the light rotates to a different swinging target.
