- TRIVIA -


The cabinet featured a cut down pool table slate, with cloth. The player had to use a real miniature pool cue to hit a ball along the table, in line with the shot to be played. IR (infra-red) technology tracked the movement of the ball, and translated this to the screen. Other games using this system include "Super Strike Bowling", and "Dyno Bop".


A Slick Shot machine was shown at the 2003 classic arcade games show 'California Extreme' in San Jose, California.
