Only 800 made! An iconic sister pin of Big Shot and Hot Shot, Pro Pool is a legendary and addicting EM by Gottlieb from 1973. Who has one?!

#2 2 years ago

I've been trying to acquire one for quite some time. No joy. I have a Big Shot. Just want the singlet player.

Ah, yeah. I'd like to see who else has one! We got ours from Pinrecue... I think he's had a few Pro Pools on there

So now I'm the proud owner of alexf's old Pro Pool. I bought it from dirtflipper, who bought it from (I think) noquarters. It's been getting around!

Pro Pool

Fun game, but I'm puzzled by functionality of the 8-ball. The E relay seems to be what holds this feature in place: it energizes when you hit the top center rollover or the center kickout hole. The relay releases whenever the trough switch is actuated and the ball count unit steps down. I looked for an EOS switch on the ball count unit or an NC switch on the trough, but there isn't one. How the heck is the 8-ball relay releasing? There's a schematic taped to the backbox door, but I hate to break the seal on it.
