    It's so sad that this calculator and it's shite games are better than most mobile games designed to suck all of your cash down the drain for a bad game.

    I've a pong console from these guys, the Videomaster Colourscore. I got it from my dad, who had gotten it as a Christmas present around the time it had been released. He said he gave it to me since then he knows it'll be taken good care of. My dad and I play on it occasionally, and it's a fun lil' console.

    That doesn’t look like a vacuum display, it seems like the old bubble LED one. Oddly, you can find the 3-digit modules (calculators used 3-digit clustering) pop up on ebay nowadays, NOS.

    trekadam30 28 days ago

    That Pontoon game seemed to play more like Baccarat, instead of Blackjack, because the jack(?) it got wasn't added to its final hand score (10's & face cards are worth 0 in Baccarat, however, the biggest score you can achieve is supposed to be only 9). Maybe it was a weird hybrid of the two games, hence the strange title of the game itself.

    Have to say, when the school started allowing us to have calculators in math class (would have been around 1977, when I was in 9th Grade), I would have loved this device. Sadly, I think much of the class decided their favorite pastime using them was probably typing in 58008 or 7734 :)

      For those wondering, the Gambler's Fallacy has to do with the fact random distribution is not bound to the probability curve... or is that the Gambler's Delusion? Are they different things? If they're different things I'm gonna look like such a butt.
