For sale: Lady Luck

Added: February 9th, 2019 Ended: February 12th, 2019
Condition: HUO - Documented (Home Used Only)

Item description

We hate to do this, but it’s time for our wonderful Lady Luck to provide another family with decades of fun...

Here is our rare 1968 Williams Lady Luck pinball machine. This machine would have started its life in our family bowling alley but my uncle was a huge pinball and blackjack fan, and he...diverted...the machine to his first floor home game room were it lived for the last 50 years. “HUO” refers to its Home Use Only condition—a rarity, especially for a game this age. An estate sale forces this sale.

It’s in great shape, always maintained and waxed, and we just put on new playfield rubbers and new bulbs all around. Backglass is near mint as is the playfield, though it does show light wear commensurate with its age at the very bottom of the glass in the yellow area only. Cabinet is mint.

This machine plays great with quick action and is lots of fun. As we said, it has a blackjack theme and if the player gets a better hand than the dealer without going bust, he or she get an extra ball or a free game depending on how you set the game up. Get 21 on the head and you win at least one free game. It’s challenging and super fun.

You may pick it up at our home (1 step to the street) or we can arrange delivery in a 150 mile radius of Pittsburgh for an additional $100. We can also make the machine available for a shipper to pick up, though the buyer must arrange shipping.

This would make a great gift for the or an excellent addition to a collection.

Thanks for looking!

I hate to burst your bubble, but if that is home use only, it is the worst HUO machine I have ever seen. The cabinet is not mint. It is in horrible shape, having peeled and then been poorly repainted. The coin door has holes drilled in it, where an extra clasp went on it for games that got broken into on location, certainly not common on a HUO game. The backglass is peeling badly and the playfield has tremendous wear. This game would only be worth $500 if it was mint. As is,it's a $200 game at best.

First.....a great 60's title. I've owned 3 all with original paint and routed to some degree.

I'll second "Topcard's" sentiment, tho he may be a little conservative on value. It might be only $100 low(likely a regional pricing difference.)

Please reconsider your description it reflects poorly on you and the machine.

I thought the same thing as in how can that playfield be described as near mint??? Also looks like something happened to the right of the coin door where the holes were drilled and was repainted.
It's on eBay so it will be ineresting to see what it goes for if it sells.

Maybe his brother is the one selling the $65,000 TLZ prototype.
