Rules:
GAME FEATURES & RULES -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GAME OBJECTIVES: High-scores are made by advancing the multiplier bonus and winning Extra Balls (if the game is not set to give replays). In the main, both objectives are achieved by completing the same playfield targets, namely: the 3 kick-out holes, the banks of drop-targets, the "A" and "B" roll-overs, the in-lane rollovers, and the centre and left spot targets. Completing the right drop-targets and then drilling the ball up through the spinner to raise the bonus to the 20'000 maximum before the ball drops into the centre kick-out hole to collect the bonus is a smart move indeed!

MULTIPLIER BONUS - The multiplier bonus goes from 1000 to 20000 in 5-ball play or 29000 in 3-ball play, with a multiplying factor from 1x to 5x. The starting point for each new ball is 1x 1000.
The multiplier bonus is added after each ball drains (Tilt loses all bonus), or whilst a ball is still in play in 2 ways:

completing the 1-2-3 sequence of kick-out holes in any order lights the white "Scores Bonus" lamp beneath centre kick-out hole, which empties the multiplier either on the next sink in the centre hole, or immediately if the centre hole is the third in the sequence.
reaching the multiplier maximum level lights the white "Scores Bonus" lamp beneath the centre kick-out holes - a sink in this hole before draining adds the multiplier bonus to the score and resets the multiplier lever to 1000 (the multiplier factor however remains at the previous level until the end of the ball).
The multiplier level is advanced in 5 ways:

by 1000 for each hit of the 3 drop-target bank;
by 1000 for each hit of the 5 drop-target bank, when the adjacent green spot is not lit;
by 1000 for each revolution of the spinner target, after the 5 drop-targets are completed;
by 1000 for each sink in the kick-out holes;
by 1000 for each hit on the left standing target;
by 3000 for each "A" or "B" rollover, when the white "Multi-bonus" lamp is lit.
The multiplier is advanced in 4 ways:

completing the bank of 3 drop-targets, when the blue advance multiplier spot is lit;
hitting any of the 5 drop-targets, when the adjacent green spot is lit;
by a rollover through the return lanes or outlanes, when the blue advance multiplier spot is lit;
hitting the centre standing target twice with the same ball in play.
