CES 2022: Pinball machines get connected

Stern Pinball has announced all its machines now ship with Insider Connected enabled, which allows users to access their profiles, post scores, and find more pinball machines from their smartphones.

Stern Pinball will be returning to the Consumer Electronics Show virtually. Historically, the pinball games in its CES booth attracted large crowds. Given the current fast spread of Covid-19 in many parts of the world, it announced its virtual-only attendance would offer the most protection to pinball fans. 

Highlighted this year will be Stern’s Insider Connected, the greatest technological advance to pinball in decades, giving players more reasons to play. Insider Connected lets players track scores and offer new achievements for connected pinball machines. Through their mobile phones or computers, players can access their profiles, post scores, find the locations of connected machines, or explore pinball activities in their area.

Insider Connected Pro provides tools for commercial operators to improve earnings and operational efficiency through remote updates and diagnostics. All Stern Pinball machines now ship with Insider Connected enabled. CES attendees and all pinball players can register for Insider Connected at

Stern Pinball will showcase the new Rush pinball machines for the first time. Rush, the iconic Canadian progressive rock band, has an impassioned global fan base. Rush has sold over 40 million records and filled stadiums during sold-out tours for decades. Rush Insider Connected pinball machines will be displayed for the press during virtual press conferences this week.

Expanding on the success of its Jurassic Park commercial pinball machines, Stern Pinball will virtually display the Jurassic Park Home Edition, a new stylish, fun, and affordable pinball machine designed and engineered for the home. A pinball adventure 65 million years in the making, this action-packed pinball adventure for the home is filled with suspense, twists, and turns around every flip.

“CES is one of our favourite events and the perfect place to showcase Insider Connected. This technology will transform how players interact with pinball machines, including our newest hit game, Rush,” says Gary Stern, chairman, and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc. “The entire Stern team looks forward to an in-person CES 2023, but we’re excited to share all of the latest Stern innovations with you virtually this year.”
