Note: The Wizard! was Bally抯 first mega-hit pinball breaking the 10,000 production mark (10,005 units were built, 5 units were distributed to the 5 top executives of Bally with the 10,005th going to Tom Neymens, Head of Sales). The striking artwork was franchised from the film Tommy, a rock musical fantasy based on The Who抯 1969 rock opera about a 搒eemingly disabled?boy who becomes a pinball champion. It had an important impact on pinball games as it was the first machine to use a popular theme to great success. Nearly every arcade had a Wizard! and most were placed next to the door to attract players.
