Quoted from Emeyoo:
Something else I noticed the other day. I had the Visor open with no balls locked then ended up on Slot Machine. I landed on multiball, played it, drained down to one ball and expected (well, hoped) the Visor would open. But of course I had to reopen the Visor! I'm still not certain exactly what the game did. Clearly multiball qualification does not carry over after multiball. They can't be "banked". This is reasonable.
But did Slot Machine give me the "next" multiball in the sequence or just a two-ball multiball out of sequence? If I have one "easy" multiball left and I land on Slot Machine will my next multiball be "hard"? Is it possible to land on the Slot Machine multiball later in the game and have to play a hard multiball with only two balls?
Such an excellent ruleset and theme because on top of still not fully understanding the intricacies I don't even care about "losing" that qualified multiball. It's a space casino with rampant cheating. Hard to complain about being treated unfairly. That's Jack*Bot.
That's as designed; If you have one keno square lit, 24 squares lit, the visor open with a ball locked...doesn't matter; it resets back to "zero progress" after ANY multiball is played, no matter how it is awarded/earned. Hence why I never intentionally go for slot machine if I have multiball ready, or close to it (as it would be "wasted"), and I'm certainly not trying to cheat it if I accidently do.
Did I ever mention how much I LOVE this game?!?
