Playfield details


Noteworthy features

  • Her head spins as you slowly turn her from machine to human. The first change is upon shooting the ball up the ramp twice and the second time the ball drops in her mouth to activate her speech. The head then rotates to show a new face with a mouth but open eye sockets. The next two ramp shots fill in each eye socket to activate her sight upon which multiball is triggered. Two more balls up the ramp during multiball will change her to human form and activate the one billion timer!
  • Spinning Ball Lock
  • Pin*Bot mini playfield


  • Talented singer and songwriter, Stephanie Rogers, does the voice of the Bride of Pinbot.
  • John Trudeau, the designer behind Bride of Pinbot, was given the name "Doctor Flash" during its development by fellow co-worker Python Anghelo. When they were doing this game and Bugs Bunny's Birthday Ball, at the same time, they worked insanely fast doing both games in a short time. They were doing so much, so fast, that one day Python called John "Doctor Flash". It stuck from that point.
  • Python Anghelo had a good sense of humor with the playfield art to Bride of Pinbot. Look around the playfield, and see where you can find little spacemen situated around the Bride's body.
  • Williams's last Alpha Numeric game.
