This is a BINGO KING two-piece electric bingo game. It was recently SOLD by RoofTop Antiques.
The machine is marked 'Soft Breeze T.M. Another exclusive from the 'Bingo King' Co., Inc. Littleton, Colo USA Patent Applied for Serial No. SBT 1745.' The game consists of a blower with glass sides and a plywood and metal ball tray. The original balls are missing so we have included a new colorful set of ping pong style bingo balls.
The blower measures 28" tall x 16 1/2" x 16 1/2". The tray is 5 5/8" tall x 22 7/8" x 19 1/8". The tray has fold down legs to prop the tray up. There is a quick release mechanism that allows the balls to drop and roll back into the blower. Originally, this game sat on a console table or desk made specifically for the game. The blower would sit down in a recessed area so the tray would line up properly with the blower and the action of releasing the balls would be seamless. Unfortunately, this console table is not present.
This bingo game is pre-owned and has been used. It is vintage but the year of manufacture is unknown. The motor runs well and there are no breaks or cracks in the glass or plastic portions. There are some scratches on the surface of the ball tray.
