Gottlieb's "Jacks Open" One of the very best card themed pinball
machines ever made by any manufacture freshly restored by Pinrescue
January 2015. Gottlieb's last single player (popular wedgehead
cabinet) card themed electromechanical pinball machine.
During 1978 the year after Jacks Open was made pinball went
digital, machines started talking and the world lost something
special. Pinrescue has restored this Jacks Open with care for a long
happy life in your game room. Gottlieb had a long tradition of
single player card games like 1939 Gin Rummy, 1955 Easy Aces, 1957
Aces High, 1957 Royal Flush, 1960 Spot a Card, 1963 Sweet Hearts,
1965 Kings and Queens, 1967 King of Diamonds, 1969 Spin a Card, 1971
Flip a card, 1972 Drop a Card, 1974 Top Card culminating in the last
of the line this 1977 Jacks Open, in Pinrescue opinion one of the
best they ever made and the end of an era. In the year this gorgeous
Jacks Open left the factory The NYC blackout of 1977 lasts for 25
hours, resulting in looting and other disorder. Very good chance
this machine will not blackout as it has been carefully rebuilt (Jan
2015) and is the youngest we at Pinrescue restore.
Great resetting drop targets feature: make the Jacks and the drop
targets reset and you need the Queens: make the Queens and you need
a Full House, on up to the Royal Flush twice for a free game. Plus
free games for high scores up to 199,990 and end of game match.
Jacks Open is a true classic pinball machine.
Quality restored vintage pinball machines are a fun investment you
and your family can enjoy every day. Muscle Cars from this era are
bringing 6 figures when done right. Pinball machines may follow suit
as the demand is booming (read Baby Boomers) and the supply of good
working restored games is limited. Just where did the cool guys
drive those Cuda's, Camaro's and Mustang's to back in 1970's?
Straight to the local 7/11, Soda Shop, mall or bowling alley to play
"Jacks Open". Doyle Brunson won the World Series of Poker “Main
Event” beating out 33 other players in 1977. I guess poker has
really boomed since then as this year’s 2014 WSOP main event had
over 6,000 entries!
Pinrescue only works on pre 1977 pinball machines like this nice
"Jacks Open" we don't do digital pinball or video games. If you want
