Trivia: Pinball

  • Banned in China: Pinball was banned for 34 years in many jurisdictions in the United States because they were believed to be a form of gambling. It wasn't until 1976 and Roger Sharpe's display of pinball skill during a court case, concluding with his famous Skill Shot, that such bans were removed.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Eugene Jarvis, Larry DeMar, Ed Boon, and Dan Forden started their careers on pinball games before being well-known in video games.
