Notes: Last pinball produced by Data East, first pinball produced with the 192x64 dot matrix display and 16 bit (68000 driven) dot matrix controller.
Production of this game was continued under Sega Pinball, Inc.
Prototype game featured a widebody playfield and a "normal" 128x32 display. Among other features the widebody proto playfield had a hole under the boat
(replaced in production with captive ball) , a much wider riverboat paddlewheel, and different "main" characters at the poker table on the playfield.
Maverick was Morgan Weistling's first venture into pinball art. Marketing Slogans: "Ante Up!"
"Out of the Wild West comes a pinball machine folks are already calling a classic!"
"Maverick pinball brings you a winning streak sure to put some giddy-up in your pinball collections!"
