"300" (the exact machine name includes the quotation marks) is a pinball machine designed by Ed Krynski and produced by Gottlieb with a bowling theme. The title is a reference to a perfect game in the sport, in which a bowler scores 300 points. A two player version of this 4-player game was released as Top Score.


Gottlieb sold this game design in the two varieties, though they are essentially exactly the same game (with slight artwork differences). The 2 player version (Top Score) had a lower price than the 4 player ("300"), and was targeted to game operators with a smaller budget. This game used animated backbox red (bowling) balls for the bonus unit. Two kickout holes, 2 pop bumpers, 1 spinner, 2 slingshots, two 3" flippers. It has the same right side lane scoring as Gottlieb Sheriff pinball (1971), and similar left side score as Gottlieb Super Soccer. Only a couple Gottlieb pinball games made during the 1970s used a backbox animation. The game has the same mechanical backbox animation as Super Soccer pinball. They made 7925 Gottlieb "300" pinball machines, and 3200 Gottlieb Top Score pinball machines.[1]
