Dual Flash-O-Matic

It was a multi-player tabletop coin bowling game, with an alley of some length, that used a shuffle puck. We remember it as being called Dual Flash-O-Matic but so far there are no results like that, no matter what the search. Maybe "Dual Flash-O-Matic" was just a setting. We can't remember what the brand was. I hope to hear someday from someone knowing something about Dual Flash-O-Matic. This is a great series of close-ups of a shuffle bowler. I see that there is a sign that says "FLASH" backboard. This site lists the romantic names of the various models; it uses the word "puck." At this crazy site, there's a list of the types of games that can be played, among them: dual flash, flash, and flash-o-matic. I think that these added an element of chance to the score. Here's more information found about flash-o-matic and dual flash features. I was once a true champ at these but had completely forgotten until somebody reminded me just the other day.
