Types of Pinball Machines
Since pinball was invented it has evolved into different generations of machines. These are the basics to get you started.
These are the old school machines from the 50’s or earlier. Commonly these won’t have a score reel and the majority of the cabinet is in wood. Seven’s Pinballorama may have woodrail machines to play from time to time.
These usually have some sort of score reel. Game play is usually a little slower and the ball may feel “floaty” on the playfield. EM’s are great for beginners.
Early Solid State
These machines started to pop up in the late 1970’s. Along with computer control, this introduced more flippers, digital score displays, more complex rules, and faster game play.
These are identified by their larger Dot Matrix Display (DMD). The computer control got more complex and rules became deeper, gameplay got faster and sometimes more chaotic. 5 or 6 ball multi-ball modes are not uncommon for this era.
