DES MOINES, IA -- Now available from Smart Industries is a novel prize-dispensing skill game, Hole 'n Win. It displays the available prizes through a large front-panel window; prizes hang from a "free release" mechanism.
The player uses the front-mounted control to steer a mechanically operated plunger through four holes; if this navigational feat is accomplished, the corresponding prize is dispensed.
