1933 Gottlieb Big Broadcast pinball

Description: Big Broadcast, Gottlieb, 01/33, the first game with mechanical score totalizers. Balls would fall into "toliet seat" trap holes (which was a flap and only allowed one ball per game), and roll down a run way under the playfield, tripping a score label. At the end of the game the player could add up all the shown score labels, for a total score. (Similar to Bally's 2/33 Airway.) Named after a 1932 movie call 'Big Broadcast' starring Bing Crosby, Burns and Allen, Kate Smith, Cab Calloway. Fully mechanical pinball.
