Derby, 1952

Features: One coin per player. Four separate flipperless playfields, each with its own plunger, four lanes, small red ball, and a corresponding horse in the backbox. Each player races against the other players in simultaneous play to move a numbered horse in the backbox. Horses without players move automatically. For instance, in one-player operation, the three other horses move automatically. The first horse crossing the finish line ends the game. This implies there is no fixed number of balls per game. Cabinet measures 70 inches high, 66 inches wide, and 32 inches deep. Sound: 1 bell.
