Take a Break: Pinball Master

SARATOGA - Saratoga County is the holding place for a very large pinball machine collection.
George Riley has a collection of 230 pinball machines. He says that almost twenty years ago he bought his first one. He did not know anything about fixing the machines, so when a part inside broke the only thing he could do was buy another one.
"It kind of snowballed from there," Riley said, "the next purchase was three machines at one time." Riley said he followed that with a purchase of five which inevitably lead him to the purchase of a trailer so he could have even larger purchases.
Mr. Riley would not divulge which machine was his favorite though. He simply said, "To me the ones that are in our collection are all very special to us."
