Wizard! (Bally, 1975)

Wizard!

Wizard!

Wizard!, released in 1976, was Bally's highest production flipper game to that date with over 10,000 units produced. The game comes at the tail end of Bally's electromechanical production schedule, and sets the stage for the company's solid state success in the years to follow. Widely regarded as one of the first proper licensed games in pinball history, Wizard! features the likenesses of Ann Margret and Roger Daltrey, stars of the 1976 Ken Russell film Tommy (a screen adaptation of the Who's rock opera of the same name). Other than its classic theme, Wizard! is notable as being the first game to showcase playfield “flip flags”, a feature used on only a handful of other Bally games.
