    #2 63 days ago

    walking dead is still going strong too. no repairs to speak of........if you won a pinball machine this club is for you!!!!!!!!!!!

    #3 62 days ago

    I won a BKSORLE in May of 2019. The only problem I've had is all welds on the catapult have failed and need too be welded.

    How is the warranty worked into winning a machine?

    #5 62 days ago
    Quoted from chad:

    Project Pinball works with Little Shop of Games to supply the games and they can be contacted for warranty work. So far so good and not needed on my IMDN pro from last year.

    #6 62 days ago

    Good idea for a club. I will be joining the club on Sunday when my number is picked in the pro drawing. Come on 75/76!!! Congratulations to all that have won a machine so far.

    #7 62 days ago

    I want in....
    Been buying tickets for years, Probably spent a pro in tickets by now.
    I WILL WIN SOMEDAY!!!

    #8 62 days ago

    I won a Star Wars Premium in July 2017. Still running great and a favorite with my two boys. And I will still buy a ticket from time to time, it's a good cause and fun to anticipate winning even if others (like Ericpinballfan) probably deserve it more!

    I think with all the money ive pumped into these drawings over the last year I could buy a used game! This is a fun thing to do and my wife cant yell at me for getting anothe pinball if I win. And she doesnt ask how many numbers I buy.... Hope to join the club sunday!

    #11 62 days ago

    I think they would do better if they actually notified people when drawings were happening.

    I had bought tickets to help support but never was notified that a live drawing would even be happening so it lost some of the live action fun aspect of it.
    Still a great cause to donate to, but the drawing appeal was lost on me when I realized events had come and gone for tickets I have purchased and no notification came.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Haven't they ?

    This is one that turned up in a quick search.

    "The drawing date was announced via email to all of the individuals who entered our Deadpool Premium Pinball Machine Raffle! In case you have not seen the email yet we are announcing that the live drawing for our Deadpool Premium Pinball Machine Raffle is going to be taking place on Sunday, December 16th at 8 PM EST!

    We will be posting the live video on our social media platforms so stay tuned into our Youtube, Pinside, and of course Facebook!"

    This was the case in the beginning, you had to follow along in the Pinside thread to know when drawings would be held. But the last year or two anyway you'll get an email from them before the live drawing if you bought a ticket. Plus it's announced in advance in the thread, as usual.

    #14 62 days ago

    We got really lucky, won it with the second ticket we bought. My wife has been buying tickets for all the premium drawings after we won. She loves what they do for the kids. She already has one in the new drawing but I'm sure she will get more.

    I purchased a few recently and no email. I wonder if it went to spam.

    Could be, I've received them for the past few I've entered (including the Pro being drawn this Sunday). I think you have to give them a valid email to even buy a ticket, but maybe there's some kind of opt in/out for communications?

    That's two winners from Colorado , I know there's a third and I know there's a winner in Vermont somewhere. I think there's 3 two time winners also.

    Right there with you man. Been buying pro tickets since 16 and occasionally a premium ticket. Glad the money goes to a good cause so it’s not a big deal.

    Great cause and happy to contribute. Looks like I’ll have to wait until the next drawing to join the club. Congratulations to whoever won.

    What game did you pick?

    #28 46 days ago
    Quoted from fosaisu:

    What game did you pick?

    JP2.

    #29 46 days ago

    Nice. Is Stern still working their way through the orders on those? Or is there another issue in getting you your game?

    Not sure. Have been told a lot of things. First it was Covid, then Steve Epstein died, now Stern is backordered, etc. The excitement has definitely worn off, but looking forward to seeing it someday!

    I always wondered how long it takes to get your machine after winning.

    #33 46 days ago
    Quoted from GTO:

    I always wondered how long it takes to get your machine after winning.

    it took me 2 or 3 months to receive my walking dead.

    #34 46 days ago

    After winning I received my game in lightening speed, 10 days.

    #35 46 days ago

    Was wrong after checking - mine was the end of May, so about 4 months waiting now. Every day seems like a year these days so lost track of time!

    congrats to eric and jonathan!!!!!!!

    #39 17 days ago

    Happily joining this club after tonight. It’s hard to decide which machine to choose. Probably AIQ or JP. What a fun thing to get to decide. Feeling lucky!

    #40 17 days ago

    Yup joined tonight as well. I'm probably going to get AIQ though TMNT does look fun too

    #41 17 days ago

    congrats you two! Someday my day will come. I pump a decent amount of money into every drawing but I figure I can always tell my wife I didnt "buy" another machine I won one! And the children!

    #42 17 days ago

    dont forget to take photos and send them to project pinball.. the photos you take will be put on their website...

    This^^. We couldn’t justify buying a new game right now (space, uncertainty of 2020 and work) But can always justify throwing some money towards a cause we believe in. To quote my wife. “Where are we going to put this?” A good problem to have

    #44 17 days ago

    Congratulations it's nice to see another winner from Colorado.

    #45 15 days ago

    Just seeing this thread. I won a Munsters premium in March 2019. Met Dan and Sierra shortly after at show and local event. Great people doing great work. Proud member of the club.

    #46 10 days ago

    I decided on AIQ pro. We made space for it close to our other machine. Now I just have to wait for it to ship. Not sure when I will receive it. I am hopeful that it will be before then end of the year.

    I am sure the wait seems longer to my 5 year old than to me. She is asking me everyday if I have heard anything.
