LAKEWOOD, NJ -- Pinball impresario Jack Guarnieri has appointed Gold Coast International as the exclusive Latin American distributor for Jersey Jack Pinball's factory games.

Jersey Jack Pinball produces two pinball machine lines based on licenses from the Wizard of Oz and Hobbit literary and movie properties. The manufacturer will be releasing a third line, Dialed In, in the second quarter of 2017. Dialed In is a "smart" pinball designed Pat Lawlor. | SEE STORY

"We have our Wizard of Oz and Hobbit lines running flat out, and Dialed In coming next year," Guarnieri said. "So we were ready to broaden our sales by working with the South American specialist, Gold Coast."

Based in Great Neck, NY, Gold Coast's roots go back to 1946 when Victor Haim founded R.H. Belam Co. For 70 years, the company has been an international distributor and exporter of coin-operated machines. Today, Victor's son, Marc Haim, runs the business.

Marc Haim welcomed the affiliation with Jersey Jack Pinball. "Jack Guarnieri has built a great company in only a few years," he said. "JJP pinballs are highly regarded modern incarnations of a traditional product."

Jersey Jack Pinball was founded in 2011 to design and manufacture full-featured arcade pinball machines.
