Hosted by Argentina, the 1978 FIFA World Cup ended with an extra time win by Argentina over the Netherlands. The game encapsulates the game of soccer with long sweeping shots to the top of the playfield to spell S-T-A-R and mid-field shots for goals on the saucers.
World Cup features two flippers, two pop bumpers, one spinner and two saucers that score goals when lit. Six rollover buttons in the middle playfield lead to the saucers and advance the ball around the goal. Slingshot kickers on the left and right above the flippers launch the ball towards the spinner.
World Cup is a fun game with colorful artwork and the classic Williams artwork by Christian Marche, who created artwork for Williams, Bally and Chicago Coin throughout the 70’s.

How’s Your Aim?
Williams Bonanza is a fun 1970’s rifle game featuring electronic, realistic reverberating sound for several effects including: pounding hooves, gun shots and a mine shaft explosion. This is the only Williams gun game to use a tape player for background sound of galloping and whinnying horses with an occasional gunshot/ricochet. There is also a bell for hitting the slow horse. The rifle has a spring that creates a realistc twang and flashing bulbs to give a muzzle-flash effect, as if there are hidden desperados shooting back at the player.
Williams Bonanza gameplay is based on 25 shots per game (35 after a certain point level). The game features targets in depth at various levels. There is a fast horse that goes across the top back of the scenery, a slow horse that moves across the middle of the scenery, bobbing desperados that pop up across the bottom of the scenery, fixed targets and an exploding mine shaft.
When lit, the treasure mine is worth 300 points. Hitting the mine creates a red flash mine explosion. Extra shots are awarded if the player gets to a set point level.

1,000 bonus points are built up for each letter of O-L-D C-H-I-C-A-G-O lit on the playfield. The letters light in spell-name sequence when ball contacts any bonus-advance skill objective.
There are two ways to score a special in Old Chicago. First, a Special is scored when all 5 drop-targets are dropped while the centerfield Special signal is lit. Secondly, a Special is scored when ball exits via left out-lane with the adjacent Special signal lit. Also, when the centerfield Special signal lights, either the left out-lane Special signal or the right out-lane Extra Ball signal lights. These lights alternate until the ball enters an out-hole.
When a ball enters an out-hole it collects a bonus and resets the bonus. If the Double Bonus signal is lit, then the out-hole bonus is doubled.

Come Ride Aboard the Lauren Belle
Maverick, the block-buster movie based upon the popular tv series, comes to life in this great pinball game by Data East/Sega. Players enter the First Annual All Rivers Poker Championship dealt by Bret Maverick, himself.
This pinball is beautifully themed, right down to the plunger handle shaped like poker chips. Adding to the decoration and feel of the game is a large 192×64 pixel dot matrix display (DMD) in backbox. Maverick was the last pinball machine produced by Data East, and the first pinball machine produced with the extra-large DMD.
Maverick is a very fun game in which players play both pinball and poker (or blackjack in the blackjack mini game). The game is loaded with features: three flippers, three pop bumpers, two slingshots, one VUK, one captive ball, two standup targets, and one Paddlewheel ball lock. For fast action, the game features two 5-bank drop targets, one 4-bank drop targets, and one 3-bank drop targets. That’s 17 total drop targets!
Player shoot the plentiful drop targets to complete poker hands. Hit the correct drop targets and win! Hit too many wrong targets and you’ll lose the hand. This makes Maverick a fun game for shooters.
Great animation and sound effects highlight this game. Maverick has both very fast play, when players are shooting drop targets and completing poker hands, and a brief medium play when the Lauren Belle is activated. Players will appreciate the breather before returning to the game’s fast pace, activating the 3-ball multiball, attempting the skill shot for the 4-ball multiball or aiming for a very challenging captive ball shot (under the Lauren Belle).

The Classic Pinball from the 70’s
Inspired by the 1975 movie Tommy, Bally’s 1976 Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy is a classic electro-mechanical pinball machine with score wheels and chimes. The backglass depicts Elton John’s Pinball Wizard character from the movie. Dave Christensen, the artist, includes dozens of detailed characters in the background cheering him on.

Captain Fantastic features four flippers, three pop bumpers, eight roll over buttons, one bank of five drop targets, and a ball save gate in the right out lane. Scoring the top center rollover when lit opens the gate for the player. The game uses a buzzer to indicate when a player rolls the score wheels over to hit 100,000 points.
