Quiet! We Are Playing!


VPW is proud to present Jokerz! by Williams. Another table designed by the late great Barry Ousler, Tomate saw a video of it on the PAPA youtube channel and thought it looked like an interesting and great fun table, so we decided to get it done.


Thanks to Bord we were lucky to be able to get hold of a brand new hardtop playfield and also a set of plastics, so we could build the machine properly (with the correct dimensions) from the ground up, and because of this we decided to make it one of our completely rendered tables.


We're super happy with how it turned out and we hope you enjoy it!

This table looks absolutely gorgeous with its soft glow.  Even though there is not too much to the table at first (here's looking at you centre ramp 😉 ), it has lots of neat little features such as playing hands, the millions mode, and doubling your score on the last ball.  What makes it great fun is the excellent tactile physics with all the flipper tricks working so well.  Another excellent table for my collection by VPW.

This plays extremely close to the real thing and I am just at the tail end of fully shopping out a Jokerz! This game is totally brutal and I love it. If you're near the Tampa area, feel free to swing by Tiger Dust to play the machine.

Fantastic work, love the physics and  how the ball jumps around the playfield, but most of all the lighting is perfect, I can play it in the daytime with the sun shining on my cab! Thanks VPW 🙂

Exquisite, extraordinary! This table is fantastic.

The lighting is so good that you can almost feel the heat coming off from the incandescent light bulbs (f*ck LED lights!).

When the whole table dims and lights back up, incredibly realistic.

The physics are superb!


This is the real deal! And by real I mean real. Who needs the real table when you can play this VPW recreation?


Thank you VPW team!

And another great release from VPW.  My daughter and I ripped through 5-6 games each and we had never played it before.  So it’s that good!  Thanks for the continued greatness.

This a wonderful build. The theme didn't really do it for me before playing but that quickly changed after one game. From the sound, visuals, lighting and physics this table has it all! You guys rock!

You should be super happy with it, it's fantastic! It's not a table I had but goes right into my favorites, table looks, plays and feels great. The VR version really brings out what's going on with this table, thanks to all involved.

I love tables from this time, the only thing its the annoying message about the sound is not 100% original every time enter in this table

Response from the author:

This is nothing to do with our table, this is a pinmame issue and it's telling you the sound for this rom/hardware isn't 100% accurate. The fix is super simple. Start the game, then press F1, the check the "Cabinet Mode" box. This simply suppresses the VPinMAME splash screen and the warning message.

Thank you guys for another beautiful release! I pondered getting one of these at a point and can say this looks nicer than the real one I looked at - the gameplay is amazing so it probably plays better too ;) Love it!
