    Curious as I have seen this before. Do other, non-pinball game manufacturers piggy back on certain licenses that a pinball manufacturer gets? I ask because the games often come out around the same time as the pinball. I posted these two examples below, but I swear I have seen this with Stern titles too.

    I see many themes on slot machines before they become themes on pinball machines.

    Quoted from Quadrat:

    Agreed. Slots and redemption seem to get the licenses first, with pinball sometimes coming later.

    I imagine the coin operated amusement industry is fairly small and that licensors will push particular titles at certain times.

    Probably because the pin is piggybacked on the Elaut machines... Just saying...
    No speculation about that!

    There a lot of money in the slot biz. They buy the licenses first as they have money.

    IGT's HQ and plant is the size of the Tesla Gigafactory. They built phase 1 over 22 years ago.

    In Vegas recently I played WOZ slot machine, saw Jurassic Park and played Wonka too.

    Did about as good on those as I do on the pins.
