MELROSE PARK, IL -- New from Stern Pinball Inc. is a modular ticket-issuing system that attaches to the side of a Stern flipper game. It incorporates a Deltronics dispensing mechanism, and can accommodate as many as 4,000 tickets.
Available from authorized Stern Pinball distributors, the new kit (Part No. 502-6109-00) will mount to such Stern favorites as Tron, Transformers and AC/DC, as well as future flipper games from the company. The kit is easy to remove, too, so a game can be converted back to route-ready condition by use of a plug set (included), which also helps to retain the piece's resale value.
According to the manufacturer, "redemption pinball" appeals to family members of all ages, encouraging everyone to play and win together. In suitable locations, the addition of the prize redemption feature increases flipper game earnings dramatically, Stern reported.
