A pinball digital counter[1] is an object in Wario Land 4, appearing only in the level Pinball Zone. It is a block with a digital face that prevents access to the next room. The number on the counter indicates how many of the four pinball tulips are left in each room. These tulips must be cleared by throwing the four Chomp balls found throughout the area, with the number on the pinball digital counter decreasing by one each time.

Once all four pinball tulips are filled and cleared, the zero on the pinball digital counter flashes the next time the counter is onscreen. The block then disappears and turns into a Gold Coin worth 500 points, clearing the way to the door to the next room. There is a total of six pinball digital counters in the level.
