Ottawa Pinball Arcade Tournaments will be held every Wednesday during Free Play Wednesdays.
All ages, any skill level, the only requirement is having fun!
And this is going to be a really fun few months of Pinball for those in the vicinities of Ottawa and Montreal.
AJ, the illustrious owner of the adjoining Neighbourhood Pub, has come up with an amazing concept for our Wednesday Tournament nights.
Every Wednesday at the Ottawa Pinball Arcade, and scheduled to start Friday September 16th in the Montreal Pinball Arcade adjoining the Pinball Medics retail location on Girouard every Friday, we will be awarding one draw ticket for a Pinball Machine to every one attending the Neighbourhood Pub & Arcade on our FREE PLAY Wednesdays.
The winner each night will receive two (2) additional draw tickets, for a total of three (3), in addition to WPPR points. The Tournament is free with your $10.00 admission, and the Winner must answer a skill testing question to qualify for the prize.
We will be holding our Tournaments every week until the last Free Play Wednesday on December 21st.
On December 30th, the Eve before New Years Eve, we will be holding a Double Year End Tournament, one on all 33 games plus a couple of bonus surprises on the main stage, and a Classics Tournament exclusively on the EM and early SS Collection, which will be augmented for the evenings proceedings.
The First Place Winner in each category will win 5 draw tickets
The Second Place Winner in each category will win 2 draw tickets
The Third Place Winner in each category will win 1 draw ticket
This will culminate in the final Draw for the Pinball Machine!
AJ asked us if there was a way he could buy a reasonably priced Pinball Machine to use as a promotion for the Fall Season, and in appreciation of all those supporting us through the normally slow months of Summer, The Neighbourhood Pub will be donating the game, and Pinball Medics will not only restore it, we will be fully Black Labelling it, souping it up, and dialing it in just like all the games here at the Arcade. With a transferable Warranty in the Ottawa or Montreal regions, with preferred availability and price on any future repairs beyond 90 days, just like when we sell them.
This time, we are giving away a Gottlieb Sinbad Pinball Machine.
Four Flippers, 10 drop targets, new style pop bumpers, all electronics and mechanical systems completely rebuilt, with all the extras our regulars have come to expect. Once it’s done, it will be in the Arcade lineup, featured in the Tournament bank every week, and the finals of both December 30th Tournaments will be held on this game.
The Wednesday format is a standard 3 strike knockout, with player match ups and games selected at random by computer. After three losses, you are out, and the last one standing takes the Win!
We are developing leagues to begin playing later this year, and will also feature Monthly Tournaments on select weekends. More to come on this soon!
The tournaments begins at 8:00 pm, try to arrive 15 – 30 minutes early to sign up!
Free Play starts at 4:00pm, feel free to drop in even earlier to practice and warm up!
