The Banora Point man is still smiling after taking out the state's top gong at Supernova two weeks ago.
The pinball enthusiast said he's had a knack for the game for many years and credits his childhood for all the practice.
"I grew up on the Tweed playing in the old arcades like most kids," he said.
"It was a favourite hobby of mine.
"I won one of my first competitions when I was just 14 years old.
"It's a case of a hobby that's paid off."
Mr Watt said pinball machines had come a long way since then and the skill level required today was much greater.
"They are making them a lot harder these days and when we compete we have to play in tournament mode," he said.
The talent for pinball seems to run in the family, with Mr Watts two sons in on the craze.
Both sons faced off in the preliminary rounds at Supernova, going head to head for a chance to enter to final round with their dad.
"My younger son did really well," he said.
"He didn't get through, but came 10th overall."
Once a month the boys and their dad compete in a social tournament at the Surfers Paradise Time Zone. Mr Watt is now preparing to represent Queensland in the National Championships.
"The winner will take away a brand new pinball machine worth over $6000," he said.
"It would be a nice treat considering the ones we play on at home are really quite old."
