Quoted from Ferret:

With default settings, the Beer Barrel holds balls across players and even across games. It's a fun feature, especially in multiplayer games, where stealing other players' locked balls in the Barrel can be a good strategic choice. It's a fun multiball when you get it, too!
Enjoy your new game!

Thanks, I know your the expert but this seems to contradict what GSone was saying in that they pass through unless the lock is lit?

Both are correct. When you do lock, the default is to leave the balls locked which carries over from game to game and player to player. I set mine to purge all balls at end of game because the membrane switch in the barrel was acting weird.

I am thinking about adding. this game to the collection. This looks like the type of game I would really enjoy. Couple of questions to the current owners from what I have read.

1) is there a lag in the play between game action and the response on the screen/sounds?

2) can the flippers make all the ramp shots from a captured ball on the flippers?

3) any other design type flaws, I should be aware of?

I cannot get up the left ramp from a cradled left flipper. Right flipper- every time.

I've had the game for 3 months now and still finding lots of fun and new things with it. Some shots are easy, and some are still challenging.

Sorry for the confusion. You do have to qualify the Beer Barrel lock first by lighting P-R-O-S-T to be able to lock a ball, otherwise shooting a ball up there will just pass on through. My comment was more about it not releasing the balls.

No, should not be.

The left ramp (Corkscrew ramp) should be easily makable from a trapped ball on the RIGHT flipper. From a trapped ball on the LEFT flipper (i.e. a backhand shot) -- I wouldn't try it, though I've seen it done.

The right ramp (quick-turn ramp) should be makable from a trapped ball on either the left or right flippers.

The upper ramp (Beer Barrel ramp) is an upper-flipper side shot ramp, so that one is always an on-the-fly shot.

Instead of Where's Waldo it is Where's Otto! I found him last weekend at an Oktoberfest. Prost a picture if you see him at your fest this season! Happy Oktoberfest everyone!

I've done it if you catch a bounce the right way off of the right flipper from the scoop to the left flipper. From a cradle on the left flipper...never going to happen
