LAKEWOOD, NJ -- New from Jersey Jack Pinball is Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean, a versatile flipper game incorporating scenes and themes from all five films in the popular Disney saga. Jersey Jack's latest movie-themed game made its debut at the 2017 Pinball Expo, held at the Westin Chicago North Shore hotel in Wheeling, IL, from Oct. 11 through 17.

Players can choose to play as one of 22 movie characters, fire their pinball-loaded cannon from the rocking Black Pearl on the upper playfield and enjoy such features as an interactive concentric map with 216 usable combinations. The game also employs Jersey Jack's proprietary audio system with five channels for enhanced stereo surround sound, doing full justice to the soundtrack which features custom voice narration by actor Kevin McNally, celebrated for his portrayal of the ship's first mate, Joshamee Gibbs.

ANCHORS AWEIGH: Jersey Jack Pirates of the Caribbean is available in (left to right) standard, limited and collectors' editions. It rolled out at Pinball Expo 2017.

The game is being released in limited runs as a collector's edition and limited edition, along with the standard edition. All games are wide-bodied and feature hand-drawn playfield art, a 27" HD LCD display, a 4.3" apron LCD display and premium LED lighting, as well as 27 targets, five flippers, tow magnets, and custom animation and movie clips.

Pirates of the Caribbean joins JJP's well-regarded line of pinball machines, including Wizard of Oz, Hobbit and Dialed In. It's now available for preorder online; distribution will begin in the first quarter of 2018.

"This machine embodies our vision to deliver beautiful and thoughtful games to our fans, with a theme that will entertain pinball enthusiasts and newcomers alike of all ages and backgrounds," said Jersey Jack principal Jack Guarnieri.

Founded by Guarnieri in 2011, Jersey Jack produces games designed to be easy to play but difficult to master. They make full use of LCD screens, LED lighting, rich audio and interactive technology designed to provide an enhanced player experience, engage hard-core players and draw new players to the game of pinball.

The company is exhibiting in booth No. 1011 at this year's IAAPA Attractions Expo in the Orange County Convention Center (Orlando, FL) from Nov. 14 through 17.
