Brothers David and Eric Basile are about to open Jackpot Pinball Arcade in Purcellville, Va., according to Loudoun Now. The new pinball facility will replace a long-vacant building in the city by February.
Even before plans to start a pinball arcade, David (pictured at right) began to collect machines last year. “I actually bought my first machine in May,” he said. “And it just got addictive and I just kept buying more.” He had purchased about 13 machines when Eric caught the bug and started buying his own to place in his business – Hit N Run Sports Cards.
That’s when they decided to open an arcade, complete with console and tabletop games in addition to the pingame fun.
