Finally got one of these in and shopped. A classic System 11 piece.
Never owned one till now, but used to play it on location when new. I
must say that I really like this game. It's not deep or complex, but
just mindless fun! I absolutely love the artwork, especially the
playfield. The special version stereo sound board that is unique to
this game really sounds great. I love when the little Joker voice
keeps giggling whenever you hit the 10-point switches and I can't stop
laughing whenever I lock both balls and the multiball is about to start
and the guy yells...

WOOOOOOOOOO! JOKERZ WILD!

I agree. Fun game for a lark. Love the artwork - except for the King.
He looks like Santa Claus.

I have yet to play the sys 11 game that wouldn't be worth owning. Real
solid collection of games.

Just based on pictures and vpinmame I would think Millionaire might be
a real turkey. Sure is hideous looking.

But all the ones I have owned or played have been great looking,
sounding, and playing games.

Hmmm, just pulled it up in vpinmame and after 30 seconds that
background music and sounds had me pulling the plug.

Wait until you experience the joy known
as "Road Kings"...

Hard to believe that this was the father
of Banzai Run.

I really enjoy Jokerz myself. Fun game! Hard to find in decent
condition, too.

pinmame is good, but it's not always the most accurate measure of a title.

I wouldn't write it off until you actually play a good one in person.

QUIET! We are playing!

I also agree that this game is a hoot! Lots of old kings
looked like Santa Claus.

The funnest part is trying to get that "Double your score" thing on ball 3.
Get the ball to go up the left ramp and just trigger the switch, then have
it roll back down the ramp to the flipper and send it up the other ramp for
the prize. Tough but rewarding!

I agree! I have seen plenty of homely ones. That upper playfield/ramp
area got real ugly and yellowed on most of these games. I was
fortunate to get one with a fairly decent cabinet and a gorgeous
playfield.

As always...

It's for sale! Everything must go!

Not a bad game at all, with some interesting features, but the giggling
Joker is unbearable! I'd be divorced if I had that one at home.
