Sea Witch Rules

Once coins are deposited and credits posted, pressing the credit button on the cabinet door will reset drop targets and cause the outhole kicker to move the ball to the shooter lane. The first player display will flash 00.

One player is registered each time the credit button is pressed (one to four can play). The credits are reduced by one each time the credit button is pressed until the credits are reduced to zero. (Credit button is in-operative after 4 players are registered). Shooting the ball initiates play.

When the ball enters the outhole, the bonus score is added to the player's score. The player-up and/or ball in play on the back box is advanced one position. The bonus score starts at 0 poInts. The outhole kicker moves the ball to the shooter lane and play is resumed. This continues until each player has played the allowable number of balls per game (3 or 5). At this time the "Game Over" light becomes lit. A random "Match" number appears and the "Match" light becomes lit. If the match number is the same as the last two digits in the player's score a free game is awarded.

Any extra ball won during the course of the game is played immediately after that player's regular ball enters the out-hole. The player-up and/or ball in play is not advanced for extra ball play. Bonus score is added to the player's score, the bonus is reset to 0 and the bonus multiplier earned is restored (memory) before the game moves the extra ball for play.

At the end of the game, a "High Game" is flashed on all players scores. If the "High Game" is beat, this feature can award up to 3 free games.

Tilting while playing the game results in loss of the ball in play. The flippers, thumper-bumper, etc., go "dead". Bonus scores are not added. The purpose of the tilt penalty is to discourage the player from jostling the machine in an attempt to prolong play. Game action becomes normal after the outhole kicker moves the ball to the shooter lane.

Slamming the machine results in the loss of the game. All feature lights go out and the game becomes "dead" through a built-in time delay circuit. The purpose of the time delay circuit is to discourage abuse of the machine. After the delay, the "Game Over" light lites and the game Is ready for play. The time delay occurs anytime one of the slam switches is made to contact.

Most features and bonuses can be disabled or adjusted by operator.
