join us for the fun, 100 % payback, cheap entry fees, open and classics divisions:
lots o' prizes!!!
have the new sterns (including ghostbusters), modern williams, classic pins, gottliebs, etc.
june 24th and 25th (2016)
will start to release tournament titles as we approach the event.
game #1 for classics is:
CASH BONUS!- the highest score on each machine in the tournament at qualify end gets $20. example: if MR BDBDBDBDBDBD has the top score on Stern Stargazer at end of qualifying , he gets $20. not too shabby! tourney entries super duper mega extreme bonus price are 14 tickets for $20 bucks. so $20 for one high score=thats goooooood.
Game #1 used in the open division will be:
ALSO, games will be set up very playable and fair. i want people to actually be able to play the games, nudge, use skills and not be discouraged by short ball times, stupid tight tilts, and difficult physical and software setups.
extra hard setups just makes games more luck based IMO and pinball is supposed to be more skill based. its not 1930's pre flipper gobble hole games ya know. hahahahaha.
*we will also have a drawing and one random person that did not make the qualify cut in A or B divisions, will still get a nice cash prize of $40. also we will have at least 2 stern tops tournaments running both of those 2 days. one will be assigned only for casual players so there are no worries of getting beat out by a pro.
other tops tourney machine (s) will be for anyone including the best of the best.
we will be giving away FREE RAFFLE prizes from stern pinball, pinwow, bowl flint, us, and more. arcade game bezels, marquees, pinball glass, plastics, signed metallica flyers, signed full size rare stern pirates of the Caribbean poster, translites and so much more. be there friday for the bulk of the give aways. all random FREE drawings, no matter how you play. way way more stuff not pictures, this is just a sample.
Payouts will be as followed for all divisions.
100% of all entry fees are paid out .
A, B AND classics.
in the open division, 75% of OPEN pot goes to A payouts, 25% of OPEN pot goes to B payouts.

also, there will also be trophies for all divisions and whatever else we can conjure up. muwahahahahahahaha!
Added over 3 years ago: Open and Classics will both have A & B division playoffs.
**number of payouts ABOVE is based on "X" amount of players. if enough players do not show up, less players will qualify overall and payout percentages will reflect that.
we will have stern tops tournaments on Tron and The walking dead that will end saturday night with all of the pot paying out 100%.. Tron is for ANYONE to play no matter your skill level., The walking dead will be only for casual (non "pro") players.
Both games have payrange units installed so you can use your credit card or debit card to play those games if you like. www.payrange.com
stars is stock. im not pulling any posts or anything crazy. center post will remain too..with the rubber. lol
yes, as the flyer (which is the first post with event info on this thread), website, THIS POST, and all other forms of advertising says.
Bring a case of water to donate to the flint water crisis and get 3 free tourney entrees.
gravitar just likes to cause trouble. cant wait till he has an event. ill return the favor .
and "Those" games are fine. they are there now. they will be exactly the same for the event. nothing will change.
gravitar likes to try to scare people away from events so he has a better chance to win and he wants no tilt bobs in the games so he can throw them around more than he already does.
don't fall for it.
the table was an inch away from touching the game so it wasn't hard to slide the game into the table, same with camera rig. it was butted up against the game...lol.
u r so silly. and it was a spur of the moment ONE TIME try to save when ball attempted jumping the rail on gb.
i don't man handle peoples games when i get ticked unlike someone i know..lol (kicking legs, slamming games against a back wall, jerking them left and right off the legs).
shame shame shame.
INSTEAD OF BUYING ENTREES FOR MAIN OR CLASSICS, YOU CAN PAY A ONE TIME $40 ENTRY FEE FOR EACH DIVISION AND PLAY UNLIMITED ENTRIES DURING QUALIFYING. THE FULL $40 GOES INTO THE PAYOUT POT OF COURSE 100%.

NO MONIES ARE PULLED OUT FOR EXPENSES OR PRIZES.
100% OF ALL ENTRY FEES ARE PAID OUT.
mr gravitar won classics at pinwars and walked away with $600 or more last november. my event, same style games.
Here are just some of the prizes (on top of all of the 100% payout cash and trophies) we are giving away at Richfield Rollapalooza!. many are just a plain and simple raffle. some items are SIGNED by pinball designers. the silent scope II marquee unit is from the actual game. hang it, plug it in, light it up! show up and play, your name goes into the raffle, we draw winners. easy enough. cant win without playing.
thx to the superb Jersey Jack Pinball who will be supplying us with give aways as well as the famous flint local Donna's Donuts with the prize certificates for a dozen donuts each. awesome goodness!
Brian- yes its set unless a game problem arises in the meantime.. we may add a 5th game, as i stated before, to classics and main.
Still, only your best 4 games will count towards your total standings.
the 5th game if added to classics would be either aerobatics (EM) or mars trek (EM).
the other 4 are already at Richfield right now and will be set up exactly the same for the event, nothing will change.
All of the main games are there as well already, only things that will change for those will be turning ex balls off.
they will be all moved to the concourse area as well, not in the game room, so we have lots of room to play.
i forgot, i may try to get this old chicago rolling. it works but has a bonus count issue. its really clean. its a long shot but it could be in the classics. i just made a note to try to get it to.
thx so much to Jersey Jack for sending us these gems to give away, both signed!
wow, we sure have a ton of give aways. door prizes galore!.
just show up and play and you can win! Even if you get last, you still can win lots o' prizes.
Started both of these tops tournaments @ Richfield Bowl.
One is for CASUAL players only! The other is for ANYONE.
both of these end on june 25th (sat) which is during the Richfield Rollapalooza event!.
game # 5 for classics:
We have Added a "B" division even for CLASSICS as well.
SO, beginners and novices have a great chance to qualify overall!
we are giving away tons of free raffle prizes. arcade marquees, back glass, translites, arcade glass bezels, dozen donuts, huge marquee topper lit up units, t shirts, and lots of other goodies. Friday giving away the bulk of it. thx to pynball fun, lqp, Jersey jack, Stern, Donna's Donuts, BIG.
