Just thought it would be cool to see who else appreciated this under rated pin.

Lots of great long ramp shots, Lawlor design, multiball, lots of toys on the playfield.

In my opinion, great build quality.

Anyone else have and really enjoy Monopoly?


#6 4 years ago

Glad it's not just me liking Monopoly

I hate the comparisons of Stern to Bally / Williams machines, but I find Monopoly reminiscent of Earthshaker and Whirlwind. Which, being Lawlor, does make sense.

I think it plays fast, with great sounds. And if you're bored, just sit and watch the Electric Company sign during attract mode. It comes up with some really funny stuff!

Quoted from Nemesis:

I would love to get a Monopoly, but I feel if it were a different theme it wouldn't command the price it demands. I think it pumps the price to a level thats almost cost prohibitive. They were what, $2800 brand new? $3k? It should be a $1400 pin but its over the 2's range... Oh well, one day... a future Monopoly owner. It plays like dog shit if it isnt tuned in properly, super drain monster, but so would any pin in routed purgatory hehe.

You mean just like Medieval Madness? To me, that should be a 4K machine at most. I know people that bought them NIB on closeout for $2700. A 1969 Mach 1 was $2700 new. Not sure your point here

Monopoly is a bargain at the prices it sells for in my opinion. 3 ramps, great long shots, toys (waterworks flipper, electric company LED sign, etc). I like the interactive game board as well. There's a lot to be had I think. ANd it's built like a tank. Despite the fact that is is built well, it is easy to disassemble. I mean, 1 plug and 4 screws and the giant ramps can be removed. I find it very well thought out for the person who needs to clean the machine.

Compared to the 4K and up machines of today, I think it offers a lot of value, even at $2500

I do agree that it needs to be dialed in as you say. Maybe that is why so many people don't like it? The one I have now is sold, but another is on the way, which will be a keeper. Can't wait to get that one cleaned up and dialed in.

Quoted from Manic:

You're confusing CV and NGG that went on closeout. MM never made it to closeout... they didn't make enough actually and sold out kinda quick. I was there at the time

Ah, I very well may be. Well, look where CV is now, LOL

Quoted from Toasterdog:

Just joined the club today and already hard at work! Made this shooter rod last night and added Mr. Monopoly to a bare spot over the ramps. Also added some LEDs, but haven't gotten too far into that yet. As for the shooter rod, I have a die that is just a bit smaller. I actually like the bigger one, but gonna get a new blank rod and try the next size down.
I also have this little stack of money I bought on Ebay some time ago. I think I was gonna do something to my Jack-Bot at some point, but never did. Maybe on top of the bank plastic. Anybody else add anything to dress it up?

Those look good! Tasteful, not gaudy. Well played!

Personally I don't normally like toppers, but that is really nice!

What don't you like about the art? I thought it was very well done and true to the theme.

Just curious.


#36 4 years ago
Quoted from pinballsmith:

I actually like the art, but the general consensus seems to be that it's missing something.

Ah, ok. I didn't think so, but I have always been on the outside of normal, LOL

Matt is right, it is a silkscreened plastic for the Electric Company. At least on my machine it is.

Quoted from PhillyArcade:

Well I've picked up everything I need to make my Monopoly new again! NOS ramps, NOS plastics, rubber kit, All the service bulletin mods, and I'm just trying to reach out to Cliffy for his protectors for it! Can't wait to scrub this one down and make it new again and play it!!

If you can't get a hold of Cliffy let me know. I think I still have an unused Chance protector for this game.


#73 3 years ago
Quoted from Pinrookie:

My family love this game.
I m using comet's LED in my Monopoly.
My machine needs a new "yellow Bank" decal, but I cannot find it any where
Does anyone know where can I find it?

Do you just mean the one that says "BANK" on it? Or is there one that says "yellow bank" as you said? I was not aware of one that said yellow bank.


#79 3 years ago

If you want an original and dont' want an entire decal set let me know I think I might have one. I can check for you.


#85 3 years ago

Is there actually a Community Chest option in the game? Or is is something that was never in the code?

We only ever seem to get the "Chance" option, although there is a "Community Chest" light.

#87 3 years ago
Quoted from n49th:

Community Chest appears to only be available during the Land Grab mode.

Good find, thank you!


#92 3 years ago

Looking great!!! I know mine came up really nicely as well.

Keep up the good work!

Quoted from lb1:

There is a cliffy protector for this, on both sides of the ramp returns.

I think he meant the railroad ramp. That drops directly onto the playfield.

The double plastics are correct. Mine is the same way. The wireform should be inserted into the holes in the bottom of the ramp.



#200 2 years ago

My game is at my in-maws, but I can check next time I am there. I seem to remember the gray post resting on the bumper cap. I will check my pics again as I might be thinking of something else.
