After passing out specially made Willy Wonka Candy Bars to mark the occasion at the first night of the Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee, Wi, Jersey Jack opened the doors and let the special guests into the presentation room to announce their latest pinball that they are more than excited to announce.  And with good reason.


After a brief introduction from Brett Abess and Pat Lawlor from Jersey Jack Pinball, a brief video was played to introduce the table and then the covers were removed to reveal the latest in the lineup of movie classic pinballs, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  This machine follows the antics of the original cast from the classic movie featuring Gene Wilder and the children that caused all of the trouble.  The colorful graphics, audio and animation that are displayed on the backless similar to the style of the Pirates of the Caribbean and The Hobbit, will make this an absolute perfect addition to arcades all around.

Not only did they mention the fact that there are a totat of three different types of machines; standard, limited and collectors edition, but there were also some other great announcements attached to the pin.  When the machines ship, they will have the full upgrade installed with the software.  That way, it will make it a lot easier for anyone to purchase and start to play right away with ease.  The other big factor was the pricing.


Standard Edition:  $7,500

Limited Edition: $9,500

Collector’s Edition: $12,500 (There will only be 500 units made)

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will be available in Summer 2019. For more information, visit

Brad has been a die hard arcade fan ever since he can remember. From the first time he played Space Invaders, to the first time he played Pacman, Brad has always had a love for video games. Hanging out at either the Great American Fun Factory in the mall, or spending the night in front of the glowing games at the local roller rink, he was always thinking about when he can spend the next quarter. He also worked at Babbages, which is now GameStop, for over six years. Mostly because they had a really sweet checkout policy on new products and great discounts. But since he had the Atari 2600, he has never looked back and owned some of the greatest home machines, NES, SNES, GENESIS, Turbo Graphix 16, GameBoy, Game Gear, Lynx, Playsation 1,2,3,4 and Vita, XBOX, Gamecube, and N64...just to name a few. Brad is also a reviewer for Mobile Beat Magazine as well as a freelance videographer, part time disc jockey, performing artist and photographer. But has a true love is for video games and Star Wars, as he is a member of the 501st Central Garrison. His ultimate dream is to own a fully working pinball machine and arcade machine. Difficult to say which one, but a Star Wars one would be nice start.
