Product About About This Product

The original Williams World Cup tie-in, launched to commemorate the 1978 Argentina World Cup.

World Cup Pinball 1978 playfield detail
In 1978 World Cup fever gripped the world as FIFA descended upon Argentina for the biggest football tournament ever. To commemorate the event, Williams launched World Cup Pinball in May of that year.

The football-themed playfield includes a range of special features. Build your points total and light the ‘GOAL’ light to open a scoring opportunity. Shoot for the goal mouth spinner and score! The goal ejects your ball after scoring so you can line up another shot, or even go for a hat trick! Other ways to build points fast include Super Bonus descents through the ST and AR lanes, and working on your score multiplier by hitting S-T-A-R repeatedly.

World Cup Pinball also features a very tricky skill shot. It’s possible to score a goal directly from a Corner Kick, but you’ll have to play a long, accurate shot from the left flipper or bounce it off the bumper to succeed. The Super Memory feature memorises the goal totals of each player during long multiplayer games (for up to four players).

Reconditioning Process:
World Cup Pinball was originally released to the arcade, public house and amusement trade industry in 1978.
This cabinet was originally used in this type of commercial environment. When you place your order with Liberty Games we will take the game out of storage and put it on the shop floor at our HQ in Epsom, London where our technicians will fully recondition the game.
This process involves our technical staff fully testing all the component parts to ensure it is in fully working order as well as cleaning the machine and making any repairs that may be needed. As this is a previously used product please be aware that there will be signs of cosmetic wear evident when it is viewed.

More Information

  • Subject to a full reconditioning process by Liberty Games technicians - all parts will be serviced and the table will be left on test for 24 hours before dispatch.
  • There may be signs of cosmetic wear when viewed up close - images shown are stock pictures and actual cabinet may vary slightly.
  • Liberty Games recommends leeping your pinball table at room temperature for maximum performance.
  • While this table was originally manufactured for commercial use due to its age and status as a collectible piece we would recommend using in a domestic or light communal use environment. Our 12-month parts repair / replace warranty covers the table under this use. If you wish to use the table in a commercial environment we will offer a six-month parts repair / replace - service call outs may be chargeable for repairs caused by heavy use.
