* {{Blipvert}}: An interesting variation occurs at the end of a successful Ultimate Showdown where the display starts showing random animations from the game and playing random quotes before awarding the billion. The quotes and video clips quickly begin to overlap and get cut off by each other at a faster and faster pace.



** After a Super Jackpot and the following normal Jackpot have been collected during Space Station Frenzy, shooting the left hole will award a [[EverythingsBetterWithCows Cow Jackpot]] with an animation of the Station firing a cow as a missile. Scoring wise, this is the same as a Triple Jackpot.

* PinballScoring: Can eventually become this, provided long ball times. Since there's no {{Cap}} to Jackpots and spinner values, scores can reach the hundreds of billions and even in the trillions. So much so that the game can't handle trillions, and the first digit shown is a letter instead.

''Pro Pinball'' is the name for a series of DigitalPinballTables originally developed by Creator/CunningDevelopments (later Silverball Studios, now Barnstorm Games). Each game is a single, highly-detailed pinball table, and the series strives for realistic pinball action and deep rulesets, delivering an experience comparable to those in [[PhysicalPinballTables arcade pinball games]] of TheNineties.

All of the originally ''Pro Pinball'' games used pre-rendered playfields, giving the player a choice of several predefined camera positions. This allowed the games to offer both photorealistic graphics and fast action, but at the expense of any sort of dynamic camera. The series has been praised by pinball enthusiasts for its highly realistic physics engine, which remains among the best available even today.

In 2012, Silverball Studios announced plans to revive the series for today's audiences by "remastering" all of the original games with fully modeled three-dimensional tables for all modern gaming platforms. On top of that, a new game is under development for the series; to guarantee an authentic pinball experience, it is being created by pinball designer Creator/PatLawlor and artist Creator/JohnYoussi.

The ''Pro Pinball'' series consist of the following games:
* ''Pro Pinball: The Web''
* ''[[VideoGame/ProPinballTimeshock Pro Pinball: Timeshock!]]''
* ''[[VideoGame/ProPinballBigRaceUSA Pro Pinball: Big Race USA]]''
* ''Pro Pinball: Fantastic Journey''
