Free Entry Into Events

The Manitoba Pinball League is offering a way to get into events we host for free.  All you have to do is bring someone new to an event. There is no limit on the cost of the events, Manitoba Pinball League will pay your entry when you bring someone new. This will go on for the summer at least. We will update everyone when the incentive is over.

For new players that want to try out an event but are unsure of the entry fee we have a different offer. For the months of July and August, ask for Mr.Miller and answer one question. What is your favorite machine? If it’s hard to choose your favorite you can answer, Why do you like pinball? Answer that one question and Mr.Miller will pay for your entry. If I am not at an event talk to any one of the staff at Manitoba Pinball League and it will be worked out.

Positive Covid-19 Test at events

We just wanted to reach out and let everyone know that multiple people have tested positive for Covid-19 throughout the day today. We’ve had 3 events this past week. We suggest monitoring yourself for symptoms and to perform a rapid test to make sure you’re o.k. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may cause and hope everyone is o.k.

We will play 8 games with 4 points going to 1st, 3 points for 2nd and 2 points for 3rd and 1 point for 4th. At the end of 8 games, the 3 with the most points win 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

The Manitoba Pinball League is a monthly event. Each month we play 8 games against random opponents each round. 5 points going to 1st, 3 points for 2nd and 2 points for 3rd, and 1 point for 4th. Point totals for each event get added to your running total. After 10 events the top 16 point earners qualify for the playoffs. Your top 8 scores will count for the final tally. This allows you to miss a month or two and bounce back from a bad event.

2022 marks the return of IFPA points. Play in the league and tournaments to earn IFPA points based on placement in an event. Top 16 in December compete for the Provincial Championship. Where the winner represents Manitoba at The North American Championship.
