Gaming machines are fixed electronic machines where a variety of games can be played. Typically referring to the machines used in casinos and arcades, gaming machines often involve the exchange of payment for the opportunity to play the game. Popular types of gaming machines include slot machines and poker machines in casinos, and pinball or gaming cabinets in video arcades.
Pinball is a type of arcade machine played in a pinball machine, or pinball table, where players score points by maneuvering steel balls within the machine cabinet. Pinball machines often include stories based on popular culture to theme the playing field, points, and bonus targets. Players manipulate the steel balls through flippers that protect the ball from a drain at the bottom of play. Pinball machines are comprised of a main cabinet for play, a backbox for keeping score, and angled legs for stability. Pinball machines vary between machines but typically have an overall length of 51” | 130 cm, width of 28.5” | 72 cm, and height of 75.5” | 192 cm. The playing surface is set at a slope of 6.5°.
