This is a pretty fun game. The shots and rules are solid and fun. Theme and art is a little cheesy and garish but it fits the early 2000s casino them. Seems like a well built machine.

Hard to find. Fun to play

I've played this pin several times, the theme is good and the game is fun. The call outs are good but lack diversity, same call outs become annoying after a while. The game has good depth, several multi-balls, decent shot difficulty and a couple of playfield toys. Its a packed game, initially fun but becomes tedious after a while.

Wasn't looking for this game because of the rating but it really grows on you. The layout is pretty standard and the right orbit shot is tough. Just because you can light the game doesn't mean you will win so the cheat game comes in handy. Collecting chips to break the bank can be challenging and cool when you activate the mode. Multiball's are fun and having several modes for multiball adds to depth. I don't care for casino's but this is a good add for your collection.

I personally don't like the feel of those early Sterns. Does not feel even close as good as the older B/W games.

On paper this looks promising: 2 major playfield mechanisms (roulette and slot machine), drop targets, 4 slingshots, ball locks, spinner etc.

Art quality was one of the worst I have seen. Print quality on the playfield and especially on the cabinet was pretty bad. Did not like the backglass quality either. Washed out colors and bad contrast. Looked like it was printed on a plain copy paper.
For a 2001 pin, you would expect a better sound quality too.

Atleast ruleset was decent.

You can see that this was a low budget build. But then again it does not cost much today either.
So if you are not picky, getting it for your 1st pinball machine, why not...

Underrated game, multiple modes, 1 main wizard mode and 2 others. The toys and gimmicks are definitely there with the slot machine and the roulette wheel. It’s got a mini video mode with the high-Lo game and there’s a lot of dmd interaction.

The music and call outs are pretty cheesy and dates itself very hard because of it. Were casinos really like that?

Stern packed a lot into this game. Keefer code is solid.

I’ve had my High Roller Casino for a few days now and it’s a pretty fun game overall. The theme is well integrated and the roulette and slot machine are cool toys. There are four different 4 ball multiball modes that all have unique and interesting rules. Collecting a Super Duper Mega Extreme Jackpot in slot machine multiball is tough and very satisfying. The roll and win wheel is a cool feature and getting to the super surprise mode is very tough. The casino games are cool and the cheat game feature allows for good strategizing about what games to use them on and trying to avoid games you don’t want to waste your cheats on. Overall a good bang for your buck pin that is a fun time.

I liked this pin. Great theme for a pin with the game design integrating the theme well. A really good rule set that takes full advantage of the gambling theme and some great gimmicks on the playfield offering dome very satisfying shots.

I was afraid about this game with some negative reviews. However I saw pinside moderators rated this game pretty good. Not great, but sold. I was pleasantly surprised. Not a bad game. It was pretty fun, pretty straight forward rule set.

Very fun Game. When all works fine and your Machine is clean wirh rebuild Flippers then is that a very nice Game. In Location the Flippers are weak often. Adjust allright andyou have a lot of Fun with this game. Long Balltimes, fun Multiballs. Bang for the Buck and the last non Licensed Game from Stern!

Only had this machine about a month, Got it initially to do up and flip but have added to my collection - a real nice surprise. Game play is great and challenge to improve is difficult.

I like this machine. I know it gets kind of a bad wrap, but the theme is just so damn timeless. Granted, I've played this more in a virtual environment than in real life, but I was totally hooked on this for a while. Finally got a chance to play one on location and was blown away by the toys and gimmicks. If you could choose one pin to play for the rest of your life, it probably wouldn't be this one, but it's a good time and shouldn't be passed up if you have one local to you.

Underrated game! Not a gambler but I really like this game. "Super Duper Jackpot!!!"

Gameplay was good, and an interesting layout. Roulette and slot machine are interesting toys, and add a bit to the game. Spin and win is another nice feature on the game. Highly recommend installing the director cut ROMs, as this makes the game more enjoyable. Sounds and call outs get a bit repetitive.

For the cost of this machine and what you get I would say this machine is under rated. I have had it for some time now and had to fix a few things to get in working order. Now that it is 100% and plays fine. I would say this machine is a fun game. I have to agree that the craps is random and A weak point on the game play. Some say that the flippers are weak but i have no issue with mine. I can make all the shots with no problems. If i was to play this machine in arcade I might not give it much more then a play or two. But in a home arcade it is not to be over looked. Once you get some time into paying it you will find that you want to replay this machine often. The shots have skill and nice flow to them. The sounds are kinda funny but after a while the "Bye Good Looking" grows old lol. The art work is not the best but not that bad. The cab art you need to watch out it will fade and wear out around the buttons easy, But a protector can fix that. Overall a Nice machine that can be had for a good price. If you get a chance play it a few times. It will grow on you !!

High Roller is one of the newer-rare games. It is defiantly the best casino/gambling pins i've ever played.
With the prototype roms, this game is very fast and can sometimes be a drain monster if you don't have it setup right. The roulette wheel and slot machine are very cool and this game looks stunning with LEDs installed.
You don't see them often, so when you do; give it a try.

Played it several times, just didn't do it for me. Like the casino theme!

I'm enjoy a gambling theme, but I just couldn't get into this game. Perhaps it was the numerous stop-and-go elements.

Owned the game for about 3 years tried to play it many times but never really cared for it, seemed very repetitive, call outs were annoying and i never got into the game. I tried to like it because of the gambling theme but just didn't.

After playing the Pinball Arcade simulation of this table, I realized that HRC had more to offer than I originally thought.

- Lots of toys that the ball can hit. If this machine was released today it would probably be at Premium / LE price.
- Satisfying right loop + spinner shot that can increase bonus X a lot if you know how to shoot it
- Unique "Roll 'n Win" backglass feature that I wish other designers could use.
- Rules in the same key as Stargate; maybe not that deep, but they are still nice rules
- Collecting a "Super Duper Mega Extreme Jackpot" during multi ball is an awesome sensation
- Final game by Jon Norris. You will be missed. :(


- While I like the roulette toy, I feel gameplay would have been faster if only the ball had spun around.
- Besides the lit orbit shots that disable the posts, there isn't much flow on this game
- Art doesn't look too good, too colorful for my tastes.

As cool as the wheel is, I thought it hurt the flow of the game. Really didn't get into it. Not a game a would play more of

I remember playing this 10 years back; the thing that drove me in was the Roulette wheel. Plus, it basically has everything that a common pinball machine would have. I never expected to have that much fun with this game.

Ahhh, memories...

The worst game I've ever played. Put in two bucks and walked away after one game. Boring
