My favorite is Addams Family.

Centaur is perhaps my favorite but I really like any from the late 70's through the early/mid 80's

#4 5 years ago

4 Queens. Took me 18 years to find one to buy. It was the first Bally pin I ever played. Tough game to beat.

#5 5 years ago


Lol, who linked Capersville??!

#6 5 years ago

Hard to choose just one. At the moment it's Centaur

I'll take this one please! Thank you very much.

You are very welcome! Seems like the poll in this thread pulled up kind of lame .

#11 5 years ago

I don't know that I really consider anything post merge with Williams an actual "Bally" machine. Monster Bash gets a Williams logo and Scared Stiff gets a Bally logo, but they really came from the same company.

Right now I'd say Flash Gordon.

#12 5 years ago

At the moment...

We will now take over this Bally thread.

Capersville = BONER

#18 5 years ago

Haven't played one yet, but Gator is ultra high on the Bally list for me.

I have got to get me one of these! Are they taking pre-orders yet?


#21 5 years ago

I voted for TZ - but a bunch of contenders. Nice to see all the love for CFTBL - such an awesome game.

#22 5 years ago

Yep O-din, Gator is a must have for me... for sure

and i am really diggin on multi player games right now as well...

single players are cool and all, but its more fun to compete !

#23 5 years ago

Voted for ToM, but only because Centaur isn't in the list!!

#26 5 years ago

Campus Queen


#28 5 years ago

AFM 8 days a week!

#29 5 years ago

I was going to put Centaur in the list, but I replaced it with a different machine It only let me list nine, but there are so many more good ones.

#30 5 years ago


#31 5 years ago

Flash Gordon

#32 5 years ago

There are quite a few machines that could easily win this race.
My favorite from your list is Circus Voltaire.
My favorite not on your list is Future Spa.

#33 5 years ago

My favourite!!



#34 5 years ago


#36 5 years ago

El Toro

#37 5 years ago

Space Invaders

#38 5 years ago

All of them.

#39 5 years ago

Mess with the bull, you get the horns.

#40 5 years ago

Took most of my money, still love to play it.
Have the machine since 2008 at home, sometimes it seems the machine has a mind of its own, playing with you instead of you playing the machine.

Very frustrating at some time, in the right way...

But to be honest, there are not so many bad machines, badly adjusted and not taken care of.... a lot more.

#41 5 years ago

I voted for TZ...because I'm going to be selling mine, and wanted the poll to help me out.

#42 5 years ago

Eight ball deluxe followed by flash gordon

#43 5 years ago

I go for the underdog and voted for CP!

#44 5 years ago

Eight Ball Deluxe !!

#45 5 years ago

I love all pins by Bally.

#46 5 years ago

Eight Ball Deluxe!!!

#47 5 years ago

Huge Mousin' fan

#48 5 years ago

AFM here

But I do love TAF, EBD, Centaur, CV, TZ and Fireball I am sure there are more.

Bottom line Bally made great games from a number of eras.

Gilligan's Island, this is the first DMD machine and " best game ever " IMO
fantastic fast game play with such a simple rule set that any one can play.
Plus I loved the show!
