Recently at a barcade I was playing an original MM and I hit the right troll a third time and his face twisted enough that the ball got sucked under the playfield when the troll dropped. Got the tech and he said, "What did you do? You broke my troll!"

Last night on location at the Heavy Metal Grill in Lakeville, Minnesota. They have the threshold set pretty low to get a free game (40 million I think), so I played 5 games on my dollar! Try the “Kick Start My Heart” burger sometime.

First time I've seen this one. No amount of flipping rattled it loose, but a quick nudge did the trick!

Stuck behind a spinner? Nice! I actually saw a ball hit a spinning spinner edge-on and ricochet back the way it came once, pretty freaky! Multiball on a Stern Star trek pro.

#118 2 years ago

This has happened to me a few times.

Are the balls retaining some residual magitism?

#120 2 years ago

Like OP'S original pic. This happened awhile ago on my RS in multi ball. Thought it was so weird that I'd better take a pic...

#121 2 years ago

Nope, what happened was I started mist multiball and just grazed the mist ball. My ball then sticks to the mist ball and "tags along" with it until the mist ball is parked. It either disconnects when the magnet is turned off or hangs on due to residual magnetism. By that point the game either gives me the multiball or it goes through a ball search.

I had 3 balls doing this on the mist track yesterday...3!

#125 2 years ago

I've had the same thing with mist multiball and when the ball sticks to the other one it rotates around it as they go across!!

#126 2 years ago

Something doesn't seem right here.

I was lucky enough to get this ball back in play (though I also earned a well deserved tilt warning in the process)!

Everybody trying to get out of the pool. Started with the 3 stuck, then used the opportunity to get some easy jackpots with the 4th and it too got caught.

Stuffed my game up though - was 90m on 1st ball at this stage. Ended with 117m

I was having my best RBION game ever last night. Well on my way to Atlantis... second wave of multiball... killing it. And then this happens. Started off with two balls locked up when they both hit at the same time... tried to use the third to knock them both loose... NOPE. Also pinside will not let me rotate my picture for some reason so please stand on your head when viewing, cheers.

This happened at a local pinball tournament last week. I'm new to pinball but the guys there said it was rare, so I took a picture.

#142 2 years ago

The picture didn't upload. I'll try again....[attachment=0,undefined caption="20151122_155302.jpg"]

#143 2 years ago

*sigh* Never mind

#144 2 years ago

This ball was literally "airborne".....I had to shut the game off and slide the glass down just to get it free.....

#145 2 years ago

During multiball and one of the balls stops on post and small mylar for the wire form drop. Held other ball with flipper to get my phone for pictures. Little nuge and ball rolls in the inlane and game continues. Got to love the surprises in pinball.

Right here at the tip of the flipper, against the tiniest insert raise.

Didn't snap a picture, but I "lost" a ball during multiball on my rfm. Looked everywhere on the playfield but for the life of me I couldn't find it. A few weeks later I found it inside the back of the cabinet.
