EM pin Chicago Coin Riviera has a kickback.
First Gottlieb's to have kickbacks were Jungle and Wild Life back in 1972
(and their add-a-ball versions Jungle Life and Jungle King in 1973).
First Bally and probably first pinball machine ever to have a kickback was Bally Six Sticks in 1966.
This was also the first six-player pinball machine produced.
I like the idea of a manual kickback. When I re-rule d BK2000 I'm going to have a manual mode for the kickback that will use the magna save (or possibly add a button to the right side).
