The search is finally over.

A big thanks to Tim for getting me to reconsider an ebay auction I'd pretty much written off.

Good choice... awesome game, I should have never sold mine. Good luck with the hunt, there are a lot of them out there.

How is this even possible? Didn't Gottlieb make like 50 million of these? Good luck John!

I haven't seen one posted in quite some time. Would like to get my hands on one some day too. EM or SS, but probably EM preferred

I would guess under 300 EMs for sure. There weren't that many of those floating around. Same with all of the other SS Gottlieb titles at that time. It's a shame Gottlieb was so resistant to changing technologies, they wen't from being the king to being the jester.

I miss my Joker Poker, but I replaced it with a Genie. I can't wait to get the Genie finished. I think it might be the best value per square inch..... :D

I know EMs of that era were quite rare while they were making the transition. GTB should come back as a boutique manufacturer making EMs again! What's old becomes new! Joker Poker VE :lol:

Poor John... He is no longer able to bump this post... It was just over one year since this post started, but he finally found his unicorn... :D

Congrats!
