I love playing "Eight ball" but don't know how extra ball is achieved and where.I see it on the bank shot bonus ladder.

When achieved is it lit like special only on the right outlane? I appreciate any advice.

Thanks))

I'm pretty sure you spot the insert on the Bank Shot lane, and then another shot up the Bank Shot lane will claim it. Your Same Player Shoots Again insert between the flippers should then light up.

I think you just have to shoot the bank shot enough times?

Thanks..I like that if you earn an extra ball your guaranteed to get it.However

when you earn special you only get it by a right out lane drain.Hope I'm right??

That’s correct. You light the special by making the 8 ball (ie after making 1-7 first). Draining down the right out lane earns the special! Plus super bonus on subsequent balls. Sweet.

Just go up the bank shot until you get the extra ball. The right outlane special is just a 15,000 pt reward.

Another way to score the bank shot is once you have completed the four balls at the top, the middle two lanes alternate for the bank shot.

A special can be points, or a replay. I have mine set to replay because I love hearing the knocker

Since my game is in the home the only thing that matters is points. You can achieve extra ball 2 ways. One is go thru the right back shot enough times to get the extra ball. I have extra balls set at score achievements instead of free games. I believe the right out lane special can also be set for 15,000 points or free game. I have it set for 15,000 points. It always startles me a little when I match and it gets the knocker going since there are no free games awarded.
