Description: Gottlieb Big Shot pinball. Same game as Gottlieb Hot Shot, just different number of players (4 players versus 2 players). Gottlieb sold this game design in the two flavors, though they are essentially the exact same game (with slight artwork differences). The 2 player version (BigShot) had a lower price than the 4 player (HotShot), and was marketed to game operators with less money to spend. There are two banks of 7 drop targets, a single pop bumper, two 3" flippers, two slingshots, one kickout hole, and an outlane return gate. Putting the ball in the 8-ball kickout hole opens the outlane return gate. Knocking down all the drop targets lights all the pool balls on the playfield, and lights one of the center standup targets for Replay (target alternates with a 100 point unit in the backbox).
They made 9000 Gottlieb Hot Shot pinballs, and 2900 Gottlieb Big Shot pinball machines. They also made a single player AAB version of this game called Pro Pool (800 units made).
