A Rare Treat For Us

Shop Notes 1 November 2018 | Comments Off on A Rare Treat For Us

We don’t usually work with older machines. But sometimes, they’re worth it. Check out this way cool King of Diamonds machine. We had a great time with it!

Gottlieb came out with King of Diamonds in 1967, and produced around 3,200 of the games. (IPDB)

The game features eight rollovers, five bullseye targets and, definitely the coolest part, a carousel with targets that feature ace through deuce.

We usually stick to solid-state games, but we couldn’t resist this one. It’s in great shape, and it plays really well too!

We’ve given the game a full shop job, pulling everything off the playfield to be washed, polished, buffed, tumbled, or otherwise cleaned.

We installed LEDs as well.

Here’s a shot of that awesome carousel, restored to its original condition.

Enjoy the game, Doug!
