Developing the Game of Skill
Despite the opposition in the anti-gambling camps, the pinball designers went forward with their mission: to make the game even more fun to play.
In 1954, Gottlieb released SUPER JUMBO, the first multiple player pinball machine.
In 1956, the first “multiball” featured game was released with Bally’s BALLS-A-POPPIN.
In 1957 the first use of a "match" bonus feature in pinball was introduced. This is a number which is produced at random after the game is over, which is shown in the backglass. If it matches the last digit in the final score, either a free game or credit is earned.
