    Now we can legally bet on who is going to win the professional pinball tournaments. This will be a boon to pinball as a whole.

    Be careful, all it takes is another morality campaign to bring back the dark times.

    "Pinball was banned beginning in the early 1940s until 1976 in New York City.[27] New York mayor Fiorello La Guardia was responsible for the ban, believing that it robbed school children of their hard earned nickels and dimes.[27][28] La Guardia spearheaded major raids throughout the city, collecting thousands of machines. The mayor participated with police in destroying machines with sledgehammers before dumping the remnants into the city's rivers.[28]

    The ban ended when Roger Sharpe (a star witness for the AMOA – Amusement and Music Operators Association) testified in April 1976 before a committee in a Manhattan courtroom that pinball games had become games of skill and were not games of chance, that is, gambling." -wikipedia article "pinball".

    Yeah, that's not happening. I wouldn't loose any sleep over that.
