    pretty much every machine i've seen has the option for making it a 5 ball game instead of 3. the only time i've ever seen 5 ball games used is on old EMs. never seen a solid state set up with this option. any reason this exists other than giving people more bang for their buck? i was also curious if anyone uses this option at home. think it would be a good way to get to some of the harder wizard modes.

    thanks for all the replies. surprised how many folks use 5 ball. i always thought it was like the betamax of pinball.

    Quoted from wayout440:

    How old are you kid?

    i'm 30, but i just vaguely remember betamax, mostly from finding a couple random tapes where we kept our VHS tapes.
