Recently I bought a Sleic / Petaco game and was curious to know more about the company(s).

#3 3 years ago


I’ve found three games from Sleic on Ipdb. And Two of the three also have Petaco on the translite. Yet the third doesn’t but is a retheme of Juegos game called Petaco...

I was hoping somebody who followed either of these European companies during that time could chime in.

Quoted from zFabi:

Spanish pinball history source here
What do you want to know?
Generally speaking these companies either had the same owner or later in adopted employees and staff from one another resulting in generally similar machines and designs in both hardware and mechanics.
It's an overall wild mix of Gottlieb and Bally tech, or looking at inder/spinball more of a data east like approach.
Stargame/Cirsa were importing Williams Games and their own games are very similar to Williams machines.
What game have you bought BTW?

Oh excellent,

I have an Io Moon and soon a Sleic Pin Ball.

So Recel, Juegos, Petaco, and Sleic all share similar lineages?

Are any of the former employees still in Pinball or contactable?

Thank you for the post
