Description

This unique pinball game features a secondary, vertical playfield in place of the usual backglass scoreboard arrangement. After capturing two balls on the normal playfield, the machine launches three balls into the vertical field for a of bonus round. After all three balls were hit out of play in the upper field, the lower field would release its captured balls and normal play would continue. Due to the extra manufacturing costs, relativly few were ever made.
