Freedom EM 2nd Version

Freedom EM 2nd Version

Bally's Freedom was released in three different versions. This is the second and most common version, having removed the original middle-pop from between the flippers in exchange for a standard "Italian bottom" (outlanes and inlanes for each flipper).

Development started in October 1975 and the first sample machines were produced early in 1976.

Freedom was also the first commercial solid-state game Bally successfully produced in quantity (third version - 1500 produced).

Production run of 5,080 EM-units in total.

Serial# 100 to 180 were sample machines (prototypes) with the unique middle-pop layout.
