    DO YOU WANT A WINNER
    Here it is!
    8-BALL ACTION

    It's priced right to give you phenomenal return on investment. It's a simple conversion that enables you to convert quickly and easily those old Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. games

    No Wiring or Soldering
    Don't miss out - Remember Birdie King

    Most operators waited and waited and waited and missed a lot of action with their indecision. This 8-Ball Action game appeals to the same type of player. It's an agressive, competitive exciting sporting game. The only difference:

    Birdie King: $2500
    8-Ball Action: Under $400

    If you don't believe this game will take the same action as Birdie King, ask your distributor to prove it to you.

    AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY

    Save your old Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr.
    We will make them earn for you today!

    PROOF:
    Atlas Music Company of Providence tested two games of 8-Ball Action. They now have 25 on location. Louie, the buyer at Atlas made the following comment: Doing Great! Game play Realistic. Will even play against regular poll tables. Has possibility of longevity compared to most videos. Can't believe the price!
