Notes: This game is the Italian version of Gottlieb's 1965 Flipper Pool. A new law in Italy was introduced in June 1965 forbidding replays. The law went into effect September 1965. 'Electra-Pool' is the first Gottlieb model made specifically for Italy. The production run quantity of 1,500 units is per Gottlieb documentation. It was not uncommon for local operators to modify games for 5-digit scoring. Most often, the new digit was a fake "0" but in some cases they added a real counter.
