And i'm pretty sure i know why.
After JUMBO lets the ball go it eventually rolls to the bottom of the bowl landing on a switch.
The switch at the bottom of the game is triggered and and tells the game to turn off the vacuum and the tape player.
The Styrofoam ball is VERY light so that it can fly through the air.
The ball is so light that its NOT pushing the switch down to tell the game to end.
The operator built this home made timing unit and bypassed the switch all together.
Following the wires back through the harness they go to the Relay that has a piece of paper jammed inside it.
The wires also go back to the power supply which was cut.
The operator went to all the trouble of building this timer thingamajig INSTEAD of cleaning or replacing ONE SWITCH.
