Steve Ritchie says, “WORLD POKER TOUR® has a timeless theme of poker, and more importantly is one of the strongest performers on TV today. The playfield is innovative and includes our ‘Ace In The Hole’ ball lock feature, sixteen drop targets, and some new and exciting ways to play pinball. It is choreographed with thrilling effects, and features the rules and software of Keith Johnson, who is one of the best and most innovative pinball software engineers today.”
Gary Stern says, “I remember card themed pinball machines of decades ago. It was always fun to make hands by knocking down drop targets. We modernized that concept by adding today’s popular Texas Hold ‘Em. By going into the market with the best brand in poker, we’re certain our customers will love this game!”
“We are thrilled to partner with Stern Pinball to create the WORLD POKER TOUR™ pinball machine.
