  • Multiball in 1963 !
  • Flippers (2), Pop bumpers (3), Passive bumpers (2), Slingshots (2), Standup targets (5), Kick-out holes (2), 2-ball or 3-ball multiball. Balls landing in numbered kick-out holes remain there until released by another ball in play hitting the correspondingly numbered "Trigger" targets.

  • Maximum displayed point score is 1,999 points per player.
  • Replay wheel maximum: 25
  • Sound: 2 bells, knocker.


  • It is my opinion that the artist for Star Jet is still unknown, as the artwork is definitely not the style of George Molentin.
  • The Artist for Star Jet has worked on other games for both Bally and Williams in the early to mid 60s, IMO pins like WMS Big Daddy and '63 Big Deal and Mardi Gras and Soccer plus also BLY Campus Queen, Gold Rush and Big Day.
