That's what I said, but never heard a reply from the designers why they had to get all fancy with EVs and that lark... even tell the player how much it grows per 100k points or some such.



90% of gamblers have no idea what ev is. Don't present that, just present a big prize!!! If you can find an elegant way to allow the player to control prize size vs probability of win by all means include it but I don't think it is a good central selling point.

All I really want in this is a progressive. Idk how to incorporate that with it but it sure would make it more interesting. The general game idea does have merit but I think it needs a few tweeks.
$1700, 18, 19, 1920, 40, 60,... :/ Thx 'Do it again'. I'll try

It had no chance from the start. It's a game for a Game room, not a high limit slot area. There are no games in a casino that can be beat with skill. It's not what a casino wants and that's not a game of chance. NTEK blew hundreds of thousands of dollars on that game and I'd be surprised if they have one sale to a casino.

Not sure I totally agree with you zcore. There could be a market for this....somewhere. Certainly not a group of them in their own room at a $100 minimum. But perhaps as a novelty somewhere. It would need to be more of a jackpot thing, not a "bet $100 and win $3 almost every time" kind of a thing

I think they should make it a dual option machine . A normal video slot with the pinball as a bonus feature. With the option of playing it as is.

I also think it would be a big hit online. Obviously they wanted it to look and feel like a real Pinball but It's at least a start. Perhaps it could be added to the skill games market even adding player vs player bonus pools.

This is not NTEK's first foray into pinball.

See: pinball wizard

This one seems to make some sense for pinball fans, but I see no gambling application for it.

That's the ticket, a novelty. Lots of
money to be made there. Not...

I haven't really followed this thread nor had I had the chance to play the game on the floor at G2E. However, I do agree with Z that this will most likely not be able to make it. As he had said this is more a game of skill than chance, as a result of such the amount of money possible won by the facility will obviously decrease over time as players get better at the game. This is a HUGE turn off for facilities. Even worse, IMHO, is the size of the machine combined with its low resolution amount.

The game seemingly takes a long time to play and looks like it would have to remove 1-3 machines in order to install this. This is also something that i feel will never be able to overcome.

I am making NO comment as to the fun of the game or the demographic in which this is targeting. However, I just dont see how this can overcome the aforementioned hurdles to actually get this to market (on the floor). I am no expert, but this is my opinion.

Been wondering what happened to this. Ahigh
hasn't made a post on the pinball FB page in
6 weeks. A girl asked what casino it was in
and he told her 3 days ago it 'would be a while'
before it was available to play.

I thought it was up and ready in Oct, what's
the hold up.

I'm not sure what stage the pinball's in but they are selling Sammy Davis Jr.'s videotapes
