Hello all! I picked up Riverboat Gambler this week and after looking at it closer I think it may be a prototype or early production. I noticed a for sale ad here on Pinside a couple of days ago for a Riverboat Gambler Prototype #9. Mine seems to be similar. I’m questioning if this is a prototype or not because I saw some pics of on IPDB that had a different prototype backglass. It looks like the serial number on mine is #25. Correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks for your input!

I do not know about prototypes. But I believe there were approximately 200 diamond plated ones. Mine was a diamond plate but not a proto. It had those same proto ROMs though

Yours is a sample game, not a proto. The proto Riverboat Gamblers have a X in the serial number.

Hey Rob, when you’re done enjoying this game let me know. I’m looking for my 11th system 11. Looks nice

Hey patrickvc! Good to hear from you! You always had a nice collection of pins. Would love to see all those System 11’s. I will stay in touch and maybe one day it will be in your lineup!
