Jersey Jack Pinball was founded by Jack Guarnieri in 2011, who at the time was a well-established name in the pinball industry, having sold and repaired machines dating back to the 1970s. In 2020, the company relocated its production facilities from New Jersey to Chicago, which is known as the pinball capital of the world. JJP's first game, The Wizard of Oz, was released in 2013 and it marked the company's entry into the pinball market. JJP is known for its technological innovations, including the use of LCD screens, LED lighting, and rich audio, which sets them apart from other pinball manufacturers.
To date, JJP has released 7 games and has collaborated with notable designers such as Pat Lawlor, Steve Ritchie, and Eric Meunier. The company has been praised for its games that are not only entertaining but also innovative, and JJP has established itself as the #2 pinball manufacturer in the industry, following only Stern Pinball in games and popularity.
