NEW GAME REVEAL! Jersey Jack Pinball's Elton John

It's the best day of the week...NEW GAME DAY! Minutes ago, Jersey Jack Pinball (JJP) revealed its next pinball machine - Elton John.


The game marks the return of the "Master of Flow" Steve Ritchie and his first game at JJP. Two different artists did the art for Elton John. Christopher Franchi did the art package for the Platinum Edition of the machine, formerly known as the Limited Edition. The art on the Collector's Edition was done by John Youssi and Jean-Paul De win. The Collector's Edition is limited to 1,000 units. Pricing for the machines remains unchanged.


The machines have custom callouts by Sir Elton John himself and include 16 of his greatest hits. At first glance, I'm really curious to see the Collector's Edition "SUPERSTAR" topper with dual LCD screens and a laser light show. I also really want to check out how Steve Ritchie's JJP "Supercharged" flippers feel.


Below are all the juicy details of this awesome new game, including tons of pictures. I can't wait to see it in action!

Honestly, it looks way better than I thought and I can definitely see the huge BOM increase. Not a theme for me, but it looks awesome.
