The Sopranos is a Stern pinball machine released in February 2005. It is based on the television series of the same name.

The game features the talking fish from the show, a safe that can be opened, Bada Bing! dancers and the boat (called Stugots) from the show that locks balls for a mini-multiball. The main characters that died in the series (up to the release date) can be collected as bonus multipliers. If, after playing, the player activates the flippers in an LLRLLRLLRLLRLLR pattern, the words "Secret Message" and the number 742.
