Lucky Seven Pinball Machine

Lucky Seven (Williams 1978) Pinball Machine

$600 or best offer!!!

Theme: Gambling / Slots / Roulette / Poker

Up for sale is a solid state Williams system 3 Lucky Seven Pinball Machine PROJECT. I acquired this machine in a bulk buy of many arcade boards and pinball machines, and do not have time to get into this project. The person I acquired this from has passed away, and he used to own an arcade store and did arcade board repairs, and pinball repairs. From the looks on the boards, they look to have new capacitors on them, a new coin cell battery, (removed in pictures), and a few new connectors. Looks as if the 40 pin connector has been replaced also, so I do not think it will take much to get this going. Playfield looks in really good shape. Machine includes all boards, playfield glass, and everything else pictured. There is no back-glass, and no shooter rod. Price of these parts is considered in actual machine price. Sold as is, and in a walk out basement for easy loading.

Game information:

It’s a target shooters game, it’s critical that you hit the slot reel targets you aim for. Built in slot machine in the playfield when you hit the right shot!!! Amazingly fun, and will keep you asking for “one more game”. Lining up 3 in a row lights an award that can be a free ball or special. Hitting both the drops collect whatever award is lit, depending on which reels are lined up in a row. The drops and reel targets are pretty easy to hit but those rebound shots can hit the reel targets at the wrong time and be frustrating. Try to ignore the lit spinner, its only worth 100 and you risk going over a rollover up top and changing the score reels. The goal is to stay in control as much as possible so you shoot for the reel targets till there is a line a set up, and then collect the award which can be a free ball or up to 30,000 points. That’s waaay better than a 100 point spinner.
A nice BG by Christian Marche. Solid geometry on the PF means that the ball is going to start moving from side to side ASAP. Got to stay on your toes!

This game has an operator option for the plumb bob tilt to provide two tilt warnings to the player before tilting the ball in play. A buzzer provides the warning. If this option is disabled, there are no warnings and the first tilt ends the ball in play.

Maximum displayed point score is 999,990 points per player.

Sound: 4 chimes, knocker, buzzer, hidden score reel provides EM scoring sound effect.
