Mapping pinball trends for the casual enthusiast…


Thanks for visiting the Credit Dot.

Credit Dot Pinball was founded in April 2014 after much deliberation–and mild dissatisfaction with the lack of in-depth opinion articles dealing with pinball related topics available on the web.

I’m the author of the posts and the conductor of the interviews around here…my name is Rob. I’m a pinball hobbyist, which is another way of saying I own pinball machines but stink at playing them. I bought my first pin (Solar Fire) with the money I earned from my first job at fifteen years of age, and was also lucky enough to have a steady supply of free tokens from local arcade throughout my entire childhood. I now live just outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and I am a member of a fantastic pinball community that congregates at both The Montreal Arcade and Amusement Collectors Association and Pinball Revolution . My current lineup includes Pin*Bot, Fire!, Elvira and the Party Monsters, Rollergames, Funhouse, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Addams Family, White Water and Demolition Man.  I’m also currently restoring a Gottlieb Charlie’s Angels, which is my first foray into a full blown restoration, and the first game I’ve owned that didn’t carry the name Williams/Bally on the backbox.  Transporter: The Rescue is currently at the top of my want-list. I have a fantastic wife who supports my addiction however she has limited the number of machines in my collection to seven (if you do the above math, I’ve run out of room, I need to tread VERY lightly now).  I can be found on the more popular pin message boards and other pin-related media under the pseudonyms “spiroagnew” or “Rod McLarge”.
