1965 Gottlieb Flipper Pool pinball

Description: Flipper Pool, 10/65, 700 produced, animated pool balls in backbox, second game with return lanes to the flippers, wedgehead pinball. Bankaball is the replay, and Flipper Pool (it's sister) is the add-a-ball version. Gottlieb Bank a Ball and Gottlieb Flipper Pool are the exact same game, except Bank a Ball awards free games, and Flipper Pool awards extra balls.

Note a common problem with this game are the plastic balls in the backbox. often they break from the shock transmitted by the two reset coils (which resets the ball assembly in the backbox). The balls at the ends (1,2,14,15) break the most, as they are closest to these two reset coils. Also the backglass (score glass) on this game often has peeling artwork.
