Notes: This is the only known game produced by this company, who was otherwise a leader in the salesboard field. At the time, it was considered to be priced too high to be competitive. We previously listed this game as a Payout Machine, but the manufacturer's Billboard ads never mention this feature. These ads carry a liberal use of the word "skill" and, while that itself may or may not suggest an unadvertised payout mechanism, the ads also indicate this game "immediately captures the fancy of young and old alike." Not knowing how young of age they meant, we will wait for more definitive information before reclassifying this game as a Payout Machine. An article in Automatic Age May 1933 page 39 announced that Hamilton Manufacturing Company, "one of the world's largest manufacturer of sales boards", incorporated its subsidiary, the Hamilton Machine Co., Inc., which would manufacture and market 'E-Z Aces'.
