Magic City now has “the fastest bingo in the world,” at least ac­cord­ing to the man­u­fac­turer. It re­cently in­stalled 10 elec­tronic units. Says the man­u­fac­turer, “It’s a revo­lu­tion in elec­tronic bingo ta­ble games. A me­chan­i­cal in­no­va­tion where balls are scooped up one af­ter an­other, short­en­ing the game cy­cle [and] giv­ing play­ers more ex­cite­ment.”
