THE SOPRANOS Pinball Machine also has elements from the show, including the hot dancing girls of the " Bada Bing ! "; Tony Soprano's boat, " The Stugots " , and a very cool multi-ball feature - a safe that cracks open after being whacked by the ball - and also comes with
that wacky " talking fish " from Season Two that always jokes around with the players!
THE SOPRANOS Pinball Machine is the first Stern pinball machine to have three separate speech levels : "Adult" (which during gameplay, many of the "four-letter" and swear words used on the series are heard!) "Standard" (uses strong language, no swearing) and "Family" (no crude or objectionable language)
THE SOPRANOS Pinball Machine features the actual voices of many of the characters on the show, including James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano), Edie Falco (Carmela Soprano) and Steven Van Zandt (Silvio),
and the machine plays THE SOPRANOS classic theme song, " Woke Up This Morning " during game play. Pinball Hall of Fame artist Kevin O'Connor created THE SOPRANOS playfield artwork, while the cabinet and back glass artwork are taken directly from the original HBO show promotional artwork.
Gary Stern says, " THE SOPRANOS is a great title for a pinball; with the show elements this game is really fun for all level players. The artwork can only be described as really stunning". THE SOPRANOS Pinball Machine is definitely one of the most exciting pinball machines to come along in years!
