Hands-Free Console Best Prospect!
Part No: 18PPLAYHF-ELD
The El Dorado PL,™ a name that evokes tales of legendary riches, may be the best “pick” of any hands-free Bingo console around ... Just ask any Bingo operator, worth his weight in gold. Much like the miners of yore, Video King knows true value – when it comes to Bingo – and knows when it has struck gold.
An alternative to the Corona Integra II,™ Video King’s new El Dorado PL offers the same integrity of a hands-free system, but a more compact, high-speed console – all at a reduced price.
Much like the precious metal, this ultra-modern console, designed with a plexiglass-encased ball chamber, would be a valuable asset to any Bingo venue.
Here’s Why . . .
“The El Dorado incorporates several improvements to enhance its speed
and reliability,” according to Mel Costello, Video King’s lead project
engineer, “including an innovative, static prevention system and
artificial neural network for the ball recognition system.”
“The artificial neural network is the latest and greatest method for
recognizing balls,” he said. “It’s sort of an artificial
intelligence-based system, giving unsurpassed speed and reliability. In
addition, the static prevention system ensures we can do fast ball calls
and fast ball returns at the end of the game,” he added.
Combining form and function, the El Dorado, a veritable showpiece, is visually appealing, as well.
“The console, with its state-of-the-art design, gives players high
visibility of the Bingo balls,” according to Peggy Hansen, Video King’s
Bingo Equipment manager. “The large base and improved height gives
players a better view, no matter where the desk is placed in the hall.
Plus, it’s designed with an inner and outer chamber, which greatly
improves the noise reduction,” she said.
As stakes get higher and Bingo prizes larger, game integrity becomes
even more paramount, according to industry insiders. Both Video King’s
hand-free systems feature an automatic ball recognition system, which
ensures that the called balls are never touched.
“Equipped with optical character recognition, the El Dorado can display
a simulated ball image, as well as the ever-popular live ball,” Hansen
■ Like the Corona, the El Dorado includes two separate units, an independent ball chamber and caller console.
■ As for mobility, El Dorado’s ball chamber can be mounted stationery or on wheels to facilitate storage when not in use.
■ Providing more flexibility, the remote caller console can be located
adjacent to the ball chamber or another location within the hall.
“That’s because the caller console communicates with the ball chamber
via standard Ethernet, so there is no practical limit to the distance
between the two, as long as the appropriate network wiring is in place,”
■ The El Dorado also features a ball removal door to facilitate quick
inspection and cleaning, a major plus in terms of maintenance and care.
■ Optically, the new unit offers a programmable LED display, featuring
up to 16 different colors, to visually enhance the game action as the
balls spiral through the chamber during play, they said.
■ Highly compatible, the El Dorado fully integrates with Video King’s
PowerPlay software, as well as other gaming components, including both
the TriplePlay™ Video Display and our more traditional flashboards
systems, another major plus, Hansen said.
■ Size-wise, its smaller ball chamber,
featuring a square base, measures 31” wide x 32” long x 62” high,
weighing approximately 300 pounds.
■ The accompanying caller console measures 32” wide x 46” long x 31.5” high, weighing approximately 300 pounds.
Speed Of Play:
when time is money, the El Dorado, as we noted, is well-equipped to
accommodate faster play. The hands-free unit uses an air-assisted ball
return to minimize time between games.
■ Time to first ball call from blower startup: 10-20 seconds
■ Time to first ball call from a previous game close: 10-20 seconds
■ Fastest sustainable ball call rate: 1 second
