NEWS : Two Jersey Jack Interviews : 92.7 WOBM and New Jersey Monthly
Jersey Jack pinball has been featured in two interviews, one from 92.7 WOBM radio and the other from New Jersey Monthly. In the 92.7 interview, Jack talks about the upcoming pinball machine from Pat Lawlor. Pat Lawlor has designed some of the greatest pinball machines to date. Some of his titles include Twilight Zone, Earth Shaker, Whirl Wind. Pat also designed the best selling pinball machine of all time, The Addams Family.
The other article from New Jersey Monthly features Jack talking about his pinball history and the company.

“In a lot of ways, it’s a playable artwork,” he says.
Guarnieri doesn’t sign all the games that leave his Lakewood pinball factory, but this one was special. It was among the first finished Hobbit machines, the second design produced since Jersey Jack Pinballstarted in 2011. Lined up nearby were 2,500 or so Wizard of Oz games—the company’s first model—complete with ruby-slipper flippers and a winged monkey that snatches up captured balls. “Just like in the movie,” says Guarnieri.
