Diner

Williams, 1990

Diner is a pinball machine produced by Williams in 1990. The objective of the game is to serve all customers in a diner. The table was marketed with the slogan “It’s fresh! It’s fast! It’s hot!” One to four players can play. Each player gets 3 balls per game. Serving all 5 customers (Haji, Babs, Boris, Pepe, and Buck) lights the “Dine Time” jackpot. It starts at 1 million points, and can be advanced up to 12 million points. The playfield includes 2 yellow flippers, a plunger, and 2 signature cross ramps, which is common in early 1990s pinball machines designed by Mark Ritchie. Both ramps can be used to obtain many points, as well as unlock extra balls. A player can easily obtain a multi-ball. To do this, they must unlock the Lock Mode on the cash register ramp, and shoot a target to unlock a second ball.
