Get Rich Playing Pinball

I don’t know about you…but when I visit Vegas I avoid slot machines. Being a pinball machine fan, this goes against my inclinations as I love the lights, sounds, and such that they offer. But what bugs me is that there is no real skill involved. It just feels like luck.

Roughly $45,000 could get you a new Porsche Boxter, Chevy Corvette, Ford Mustang and many other fast and fun cars. But it could also get you the TL1 Professional Simulator. This thing is just insane. It features the […]


Nearly 20 Year Old Pinball Machine Found Still New in Box

My buddy Gerry recently purchased a still new in the box Road Show pinball machine for his game room. He was kind enough to share pictures with me of this incredibly rare experience.
