It's about enough to make me spew...
It is a real shame that they aren't making pinball anymore. If they can do this with video poker, imagine where the silver ball would be.
And they make more money with these than pinball. Don't blame williams they just wanted to stay in business,
Yeah looks pretty lame
I guess with the increase of casinos so does the need for slots and the like?
It sucks, but I can't blame them. Just wish that with all the money they're pulling in now, that would at least consider making 1-2 pins a year.
Still show Stern who the boss is
Blame them, no, not at all. But, it's still kinda like seeing the gal you really wanted to marry walking hand in hand with the guy whose ass you wanted to kick.
But I still thank Williams for all of the awesome times I have with there old pins!
I wonder how an AFM pin would do it it were set next to the slot. Or a Black Knight for that matter. It would maybe be a way to generate some quick interest in pinball. It would probably never happen as the pin wouldn't pull in any money at all compared to a slot.
I was told by the operator that I bought my AFM from that it started its life in a casino here in KC. I can't remember which one he said.
Hey what if they make so much money they can get back into pinball?
Wms Black Knight 3 - 2015 anyone?
Ha, Williams going back to pinball? Not going to happen. Sad though, especially with JJP and Stern kicking in into high gear (that is if Stern actually makes real games again).
i am in australia and you guys would be gobsmacked at whats happening here. you yanks have got slots sure but confined to towns like vegus. Here there is slots on every street corner in every pub in every town even small one horse towns. It is destroying this whole country. ask anyone you know from australia and they will tell you how bad it is.
I spent about six months in Sydney back in 1993. At the time, the slots were just starting to gain some serious traction. I also recall that there were TABs in every pub where you could bet on horses, sports, etc ...
yeh it sucks and the government will never do anything about it cause they take a big cut to let the TAB corp and others rape the people of australia
That is sad. But they have to make money, of course. Would be nice if they incorporated some pinball in a slot machine, but it would probably wind up malfunctioning too much in the end.
The goal with slots is to not have any maintenance at this time. No more coins, fake sounds of coins hitting the tray when you cash out your redeemable voucher for your winnings, (or what you decide to quit at.)
