Hot Tip Pinball Machine *

Great classic pinball fun at an affordable price!

Hot Tip is a classic Williams pinball and it is a 4 player game the whole family can enjoy. Being that this game is from 1977 it is one of the last of a by gone era of pinball machines, that were electro-mechanical. Most all major pinball manufactures transitioned to solid-state digital electronic pinball machines in 1977.

This electro-mechanical pin features pop bumpers, sling shots, targets, 3 chimes, drop target banks and a spinner that is really satisfying to rip! … all of the things a great vintage pinball are known for.

CABINET: Exterior cabinet has been cleaned an some minor touchups have been done. All exterior metal has been polished and new leg bolts and leg levelers have been installed.

BACKGLASS: The backglass is original and in near perfect condition. Only a few tiny small flakes up near the top by the Williams logo.

PLAYFIELD: The playfield has been thoroughly shopped out meaning that all components (plastics, posts, etc.)  were removed from the top side of the playfield and cleaned. Entire playing surface has been cleaned and polished and new rubber rings and have been installed throughout the playfield as well as new carbon steel ball and bulbs as needed. Original playfield is in great shape with minimal wear most noticeably by the upper left drop target bank as seen in photos. No chipped or broken decorative plastics.

– Hot Tip has been overhauled by one of D/FW’s most well respected electro-mechanical pinball experts. Many hours were spent troubleshooting, repairing and dialing in this pinball machine for proper operation.

Hot Tip includes locks and keys for the backbox and coindoor as well as the original literature & schematics.

WARRANTY:  Hot Tip has been overhauled by one of our electro-mechanical experts and it plays great! We encourage any prospective buyer to please visit our store and see and play this game in person.
