    Thanks for sharing the video!

    I've always wondered about the mob/pinball connection and how it affected companies like Bally.

    very cool video.

    I always thought it interesting that Genco was both a pinball company and the front company formed by Vito Corleone in the Godfather.

    Although Don mentioned that Bally slot machines are now being made by another company that is in no way associated with the original Bally; Several employees from Bally Manufacturing Corporation (which became Bally Entertainment Corporation) moved with Bally's Gaming Division and the subsequent spin-offs and to what is now named Bally Technologies, Incorporated. This took place in 1990 and a few are still there.
