LAKEWOOD, NJ — Jack Guarnieri, founder of Jersey Jack Pinball, reports that his company has been granted a patent for a system that adds redemption features to classic flipper games. The system, called Pindemption, has been tested on location and will be implemented in a new software release for Jersey Jack’s popular Wizard of Oz flipper. The game’s software will be upgradeable by use of a plug-in dongle.
Pindemption offers three choices for operators, making it suitable for use in establishments with card-based payment and redemption architecture, online loyalty programs and the classic ticket-dispensing approach.
Guarnieri observed that “pinball is a game of skill, and in many jurisdictions games of skill are more in demand.” Pindemption represents a new way to operate pinball machines commercially, he said.
