In 1978 the first Kiss arcade pinball machine was introduced by Bally, and stayed in circulation well into the 1980s. In 1978, Barry Imhoff declared, "there will be 20,000 Kiss machines." In September 2006 it was announced that a new coin-op machine was in the works from Kiss licensee ICUP.
At the Midwest Gaming Classic (MGC) In April 2014, John Popadiuk of Zidware revealed a Kiss pinball machine prototype. The prototype was the project of Popadiuk (Jpop) and his friend Tony Allison, and they hoped to strike a licensing deal with the band to mass produce the game. Popadiuk stated about the project: "it is an art piece (one off) and I am holding "no" use rights. We did not reproduce "any" kiss artworks but created all from scratch."
In 2015, Stern released a Kiss pinball machine.
