Greetings Pinball Fans,
Jack is currently in Rimini, Italy at the International Amusement & Gaming Show, Enada. Two Wizard of Oz Pinball Machines are in Technoplay's Booth.
We are proud to announce that Tecnoplay is the exclusive JJP Distributor in Italy! Tecnoplay's, Mauro and Emanuela's history is in Zacarria Pinball and they have been amazing supporters of JJP. We expect great things in Italy for many years to come.
The IFPA ITALY (International Flipper Pinball Association) is the first to do a WOZ Tournament, which took place today during the show! Congratulations to Alessandro Rea, the First Place WOZ Winner.
The game is being seen and played by hundreds of people including Italy's #1television network. "The response to WOZ at the show has been amazing. We couldn't be more excited to be getting games out the door and into our customers' homes and arcades very soon!", says Jack.

We are happy to reveal the Jersey Jack Pinball Shipping Box. Good News! The game weighs in at 320 pounds without the box. This particular game is on its way to our Programmer, Ted Estes, who has been assisting Keith with WOZ.
This coming weekend, 3 Wizard of Oz Pinball Machines will be at the Texas Pinball Festival in Dallas. JJP Employees, Butch Peel and Eric Meunier will be in attendance as well as our Distributor, FUN Billiards. Visit this link to find out more about the show - http://texaspinball.com/tpf/. Jack will be heading home from Italy and will be calling in via Skype from the factory floor on Saturday morning to talk to the Texas crowd.
The games that will be at the Texas Pinball Festival will have the latest released code version which has the Multiball system fully implemented, power options added for most coils in the game including bumpers, slings, flippers and poppers, trough and auto launch, start of implementing Audits, Ball save options, options to release balls held in lock or not, the implementation and choreography of the shaker motor, and perhaps some more surprises.
We will also be at the Amusement Expo, AMOA in Las Vegas on March 20-22 with a couple WOZs. www.amusementexpo.org
When real production games ship later this month, it will be a game with ongoing software development and easily installable updates occurring on a regular basis.
We are also very excited to be showing up in some mainstream publications. JJP was featured in this month's issue of Fortune Magazine. You can find the full article/photos by clicking here.
There is also a great article about Jersey Jack Pinball that recently went live on Polygon.com. The story written by Chris Plante is very in-depth and covers JJP and WOZ from inside the factory. Click here to view the full article.
Also....We want to wish WOZ Game Designer, Joe Balcer a very Happy Birthday! Have a great day Joe!
