for some real fun... PLAYBOY!
Head over to the pinball grotto with... PLAYBOY!
This game was produced in 1978 by Bally, who hands-down made the best and most
well-known digital pinball machines of the late 70's and early 80's. Games like
Playboy, Eight Ball, Space Invaders and Silverball Mania ruled the arcades! Bally
was known for creating great playing pinball machines with the best and most
popular themes. The 70's was the decade that Hugh Heffner turned his
fledgling men's magazine into a periodical of iconic proportions.
Beautiful women graced the pages of the internationally popular magazine and
some of those ladies are right on this game! Playboy was an innovative
game and was one of the very first machines to feature digital sound.
The theme of this game makes it a highly-collectable game to own, plus it
plays fantastically well! This true
classic Bally machine brings your youth back to life with the fun and excitement
of a full size vintage arcade game. Pinball machines are
presently enjoying a renaissance period with young and old alike experiencing
new-found joy in these games of the past. This game has genuine
Bally style play with a classic playfield layout that's a true blast to play!
Bop to the digital music and sounds when you start up a game and get ready for the action! Try to knock down all of the "bunny" targets for high scores and big bonus points! Score a hit on the playmate of the month stationary targets for more points and a chance at SPECIALS and EXTRA BALLS! Try to collect all of the secret keys and gain access to THE GROTTO! The whole playfield is loaded with all of the of those classic playfield elements like drop targets, stationary targets, roll-overs, slingshots, pop-bumpers, kick-backs and more!

Most enthusiasts will agree that this game is one of the most collectable Bally games to own. The popular theme goes great in any home gameroom!
This is one beautiful Playboy machine! Your typical game was played and beaten to death in the arcade and has a wrecked playfield, faded and destroyed cabinet and the electronics are shot. This is not your typical ugly example as it has been refurbished starting with a repainted and restenciled cabinet. The legs were also refinished and a brand new playfield glass was installed. The backglass is original and not a reproduction with some paint lifting which has been sealed from the back side with one small touchup. A brand new MPU was installed and the other electronics have been serviced as needed. The playfield has had a brand new artwork overlay installed which shines like glass and will last for years to come. Brand new flipper mechanicals, flipper bats and pop-bumper caps and bodies were installed. As the pictures show, this is a very nice example of a vinatge machine. Plays lightning fast just like it did in 1978!
