Patrick & tiltjlp have released the grand daddy of Bingos, namely Universal's 1951 5 Star Bingo. This beauty led to both 6 card and Magic Screen bingos. Our version provides an adjustable speed plunger and enhanced nudging, but we left out tilting, to give players a fighting chance.

Unique to 5 Star, and seen on few other Bingos, is a drain hole, making it just that much harder to score three in a row, much less a T or an X for major replays. For added fun, we have provided you with three ways to track scoring, Credits, Lines, and Score.

Thanks to both of you for 5 Star!
I had a chance to play it and you guys did a fine job, it's very fun and addictive, but I'm not a big fan of adding sounds to it..

Check out the Flyer,...Sensationally Different! :D

Good to know we got it right, since neither of us have seen one in real life. I'm not too keen about adding sounds either, but most folks expect some. I do try not to go overboard too much. Glad you like it.

I have to respectfully disagree, This is a 1951 Bingo recreation and I would not expect voices or added sounds of any kind...
You cound be right for once :p Jon. Let me know what the actual sounds were and I'll see about an update. Better yet, if you have any appropriate sounds, sent them my way.
