Awards & Prizes

Best in Show Awards

Exhibited machines on free play and available to guests are eligible for cash prizes awarded by the Organizers of the Texas Pinball Festival. A judging committee, headed up by local collector “Mayor” Bill Morrison this year,  will make the final decision on which pins win ribbons and cash prizes. Judging takes place throughout the weekend, and the winners are announced on Sunday afternoon at the Awards Ceremony.

Pinball machines exhibited at the 2016 Texas Pinball Festival are eligible to win a cash prize and a blue ribbon in each of the following categories:

Best Antique (pre 1960)
Best 60’s
Best 70’s EM
Best 70’s Solid State
Best 80’s
Best 90’s
Best Modern (2000-present)
Best Original
Best Restoration
Best Custom
Best Classic Arcade Video Game (pre 1990)

Grand Champion – The best overall pinball machine on the floor is named “Grand Champion” and its proud owner will take home a cash prize, ribbon and bragging rights.

The goal of the Best In Show awards is to reward the collectors that put so much time and effort into their games and share them with us at TPF. Best in Show awards will only be awarded to games still present and set up at TPF on Sunday at the start of the Awards Ceremony, and awarded to the Exhibitor that registered the game. Generally, auction and vendor “for sale” games are not eligible. However, we do recognize that some vendors do bring games from their personal collections, and those titles are eligible.

Judging considerations may include, but are not limited to, cosmetic condition, mechanical condition, quality of touch-ups or restoration (if any), game rarity or popularity, game cleanliness (quality of shop job), attention to detail (i.e. legs and leg bolts polished), modifications, and overall appeal.

Bring out your best!

American Heroes Raffle

Each year we raffle off a full size pinball machine. In 2015, we purchased a 2015 Stern WrestleMania pinball machine that became the grand prize for the 2015 American Heroes Raffle raising more than $3,800 for the Wounded Warrior Project™.

In 2016, The Texas Pinball Festival is proud to become a partner of Pinball for Patriots. All proceeds from the 2016 TPF American Heroes Raffle will be donated to the nonprofit organization Pinball for Patriots, and will help put pinball machines within reach of recovering soldiers in the local DFW area.

Raffle tickets are available for purchase at the registration table through out the weekend. Be sure you buy your tickets early as they are also used to award door prizes throughout the weekend. Winning tickets will be returned to the turnstile before the grand prize is drawn. Every purchased ticket has a chance to be drawn for the grand prize!

Door Prizes

We will have a host of pinball, game and game room related items to give away! And we start giving them away right after the doors open.

How do you get in on this? You buy raffle tickets.

Door prize winners are announced over the loud speaker and displayed near the Registration Booth to ensure that no one gets left out. Winning tickets will be held at the Registration Booth. Unclaimed prizes will be redrawn before the end of the show. All winning tickets will be returned to the bin for a chance at the grand prize on Sunday.
