Thanks to everyone that participated!
WINNERS ANNOUNCED!! -- See the post below!
Not one to skimp on prizes, for this giveaway I'm offering a great main prize. How about pimping your Bally (or Stern) with a new set of LED displays?
- MAIN PRIZE - 1x Fully Assembled Display Set (5x displays!!) for Classic Bally/Stern
Prize package valued at $175-190 depending on options!
- 2ND, 3RD & 4TH PRIZES - 1x Fully Assembled Display (1x display) for Classic Bally/Stern
Prize(s) valued at $35-40 per display
I had a few extras of the REV1 boards floating around and thought offering a full set would be an awesome contest prize. A contest like this is also a great way to introduce people to the NEW Pinitech UNO and Pinitech TRADITIONAL LED displays. Displays will be AMBER DIGIT color, but if you want a different color we can talk about it Winner(s) can choose either the TRADITIONAL style or the single-board UNO style for their prize.

Gaining an entry in the contest is pretty simple, but you need to follow the rules.
This contest is open to *everyone* and you don't even need to purchase anything!
HOW TO ENTER
Post your favorite Classic Bally or Stern game & what makes it so great.
Is it a game that tormented you in your youth? The artwork? Gameplay? Some special shot or overall flow of the game? The sounds?
Stories and antecdotes are welcome! One entry per person. Can't pick just one game? Post your top three or five favorites & why. It's all about highlighting what's cool about some of these earlier titles.
There's only one rule. If you win, you must enjoy the displays. Those who do not enjoy them will have to send them back Oh and for the winner of the full display set, a picture of the displays in your machine would be awesome!
Contest runs NOW thru 9/4/2017 at 11:59pm. Winners will be chosen on 9/5 via random drawing of crumpled names out of a hat by my wife
I think this will be a great way to give some of these classic games more exposure! And honestly, I don't have much in-depth play-time on many of them myself & I'm sure I'm not the only one in that boat. A thread grouping some quick thoughts of these games from a lot of people seemed like a really neat concept. It would be great knowing what makes some of these titles so popular!
If you want to participate without it counting as an entry, just say "exclude" at the end of your post.
ie. If you can't utilize any Bally/Stern displays then you should say "exclude"
