Question: just how does this new game work? Is it that your score determines how much of the wheel is green when it spins to determine if you won your bet or not? If so, I would expect professional pinball players (yes, they exist) to be all over this machine.

Your initial bet determines how much of the initial wheel is green. Your score then increase that amount. While playing it indicate I had well over 100%, we are talking 10%.

I can see a version of this where it starts off as a slot and the pinball is only played within a bonus round. perhaps an auto play option for people who just like to watch the action.

Ahigh, I hope your game makes it. Looks fun. I gamble for fun because I like playing fun games. I only gamble because that's the cost of playing games in Vegas.

I'm surprised something similar to pachinko hasn't been developed. Are you listening Ahigh? Could be a side project next to the pinball concept:-)
Pachinko is huge in Japan. Its used for gambling even though gambling is illegal. You win prizes if you are good. There is always a shop nearby the pachinko parlor that will buy prizes getting around the gambling restriction.
Talk about an untapped market of gamblers from Japan in Vegas.

They offer pachinko online for real money. Ahighs game might be great for online.

How the hell do you ALWAYS seem to find these over 100% Games?? :)

The game was very fun and made very well. It was, hands down, the most unique product at the show, but I do have a few suggestions:

1. I saw two players who accidentally used the wrong buttons for the flippers and thought they were broken. This would cause a lot of anger if it were for real money. Personally, I think that any button on the right should control the right flipper and any button on the left should control the left flipper.

2. After winning, there is a very low voice that sounds like the Mortal Kombat voice, except I couldn't understand it. This sounds like something bad happened until the cheery voice says that you won.

3. It should be made more clear which color wins and which loses. I did see that the wheel colors were modified by the second day, but I think there should be something like "Land on green to win," right above the wheel.
I heart Crystal Math.

Echoing what CrystalMath said, what happens in a casino if an AP is trying to play the pinball game well for $1,000 per "hand" and a drunk tourist stumbles into them and causes the ball to drop? Does casino management negate that turn and allow a free $1,000 play? Maybe I'm not understanding that concept either but in a crowded casino where the goal is to get eyes on a new concept, to me combining that with booze and drunk tourists is a recipe for a handful of very angry whales.

Not to detract from the concept, Ahigh, because I think gambling pinball is an awesome idea. Kind of reminds me of the post from the Wiz (not sure if it was here or on WoO) about Looff's Lite a Line. Definitely a place I plan on visiting when I make it out to California, if for nothing else than to experience a different (and highly unique) form of gambling.

Yeah, I was one of those guys.

Frankly, there only needs to be one MULTI-FUNCTION button on each side.

Before the game starts, the buttons are used to set the bet.

After you pull the plunger, they control the flippers.

After the game ends, they get the QR code to appear.

Also, the QR code is way to big. Gotta hold the phone too high to scan it. Lapel, that should just appear, along with a brief description, automatically upon completion.

The pinball is a no brainer, it displays the % on the screen as you play. The problem with this particular game, you wont know if its + EV until you play it.

Real money, or just play?
