I extensively researched this; there are infact copies of Pinball for
64-bit platforms: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EPTfOTC4Jw&t=47s

Pinball had problems relating to 64-bit FPU precision (and this can
actually be reproduced by fiddling with FPU flags), but it did ship in
Windows XP x64 Professional.
