More about the theme:
During the prohibition  in America(1919 - 1933) it was illigal to sell liquor.
The production of alcoholic beverages was boot-legged and the selling was located
in obscure bars and theathres so called SpeakEasies. The entertainment scene also
found it's place in those Speakeasies.
Dancing-cabaret, roulette and card-playing mix well with the consumption of alcohol.

Adaptation of the theme in the Pinball Machine:
The Pinball SpeakEasy-4 has this theme come to life in this typical setting.
The back-box shows a Big-Band in the back, a man in the front 'dandy-dressed' and
a woman hair and dress charleston-style looking. The roulette comes back in a
spinning-wheel wich gives bonus points, add- or subtract-balls.
Two card games in the form off shooting cards (flying targets)
10 - Jack - Queen - King - Ace in sequence add-a-ball and advances bonus multipliers.
The second card game you find in the upper part of the playfield. You have to pass
the lanes 5-6-7-8-9 in secuence to add-a-ball. Passing a Joker-lane four times
