Can anyone name the source of these randomizers?

First, a with six-sided die. One face says, "F", the opposite face says, "W" (I assume not "M" because none of the lines of the letter are parallel). The other faces have boxes that are blue, red, yellow and green.

Secondly, a spinner that says, "Copyrihgt MCMLVIII - Manufactured by Transogram company, Inc., N.Y." and "No. 1243". The dial is composed of two concentric circles, one numbered one through six and the other one through twelve.

I'm pretty sure the die is from Advance to Boardwalk. The four colors match the four zones in which you can build. The "W" is wild, meaning you can build in any zone. The "F" I think stands for Fortune, meaning you draw a card.

I have a feeling your Transogram spinner is the one in here:

I have to admit I'm curious what the Bingo-Matic is.

That's odd. I know I had that set as a kid. I suspect it first belonged to my older sister who never was much of a gamer, but I played the heck out of all those odd games packed in that box. I remember those numbered fish, those playing pieces, that spinner ... but I don't remember that Bingo-Matic thing. Maybe if I saw it standing up.

Exact match on the spinner and I will have to take you for your word on the die.

Thank you for your responses.
