1977 Eight Ball

If you like “Happy Days” of TV fame, you’ll immediately notice “The Fonz” on the backglass.
George Christian designed this machine and Paul Faris penned the artwork package. The
machine was very popular in the early days of solid-state pinball. 20,230 games were made
and most of them were played down to the wood subsurface under the artwork due to
excessive play. The pool-themed game is set up so that players one and three’s goal is to
score balls 1 to 7 and players two and four are after the 9 to 15 balls. Once completed, the
eight-ball target lights. This machine has a built-in memory recall of each player’s efforts
and the game continues on your next ball where you left off. Bonus awards are 3,000
points per ball lit with a holdover feature from your previous accomplishments. The right
bonus lane advances the winnings by 2x, 3x, 5x , super bonus, extra balls and specials.
