Not sure you are going to find EleKtra up to your expectations.  I have one but would rank it well below Centaur, Paragon, EBD, Fathom, etc.  It is a hard game to play, and very hard to achieve 3 ball multiball, but just lacks the excitement of the Bally classics.

cheers
Ian

I dont have the same expectations of the best Ballys, but hey its a tri-level and I own it. EBD is the only pin I really want now........well for now anyway lol

Tough guys , pinball , booze and Winnie reds all getting mentions throughout the story help to make that a great read ! :lol

And maybe you can run some Iron Maiden instead of AC DC in your shed next time , that way you will actually hear some talented people playing music ( oh – flame suit well and truly on !! )
DW Drums rule !

7. Do you still have it? No, but in a way my wife does! My pinball was the only thing I owned other than my kingswood of any value. I was working at BHP and getting OK money but I used to blow it all on cars, computer games, and booze. I met my later to be wife and we decided to get engaged. I sold Freedom to buy her an engagement ring. She still wears the ring, and sometimes I tap both sides of it to imitate playing pinball for a stir. The money went to a good cause, but that was a fine machine! lol

Great bunch of answers Sinbad, thanks for sharing!

I quoted the above as a nomination for "Best reason why I had to sell a pin".
“If you wanna escape, go up to a pinball machine. There’s a magic button on the front that makes the whole universe disappear.”
