Jersey Jack Pinball today revealed their fifth and latest title, the Pat Lawlor-designed Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.
The game was premiered during the JJP seminar at the Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee on Friday 12th April, but it will also receive a European unveiling at the Flip Expo show in Le Treport, France the following day.
Pinball News was provided with pre-reveal pictures and information about the game so we could bring you all the details as early as possible, but we are also in Le Treport for the official unveiling there.
Jersey Jack Pinball’s latest title is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory comes in three models. The base model is the Standard Edition which can be produced in unlimited quantity. The Limited Edition is also virtually unlimited with a high restriction of 5,000 machines maximum, while the top-end Collector’s Edition is truly limited to just 500 machines.
Let’s take a look at the cabinets and backboxes of the three variants.

Finally, we have the Collector’s Edition.

So the price ranges from $7,500 for the Standard to $12,500 for the Collector’s Edition, but that premium price adds a bunch of cosmetic enhancements and gets you that exclusivity of owning the top-of-the-range model.
The Limited Edition and Collector’s Edition both have the
