    I like the feature on Williams Grand Prix where you can cash out your bonus while the ball is still in play. Are there other EM games that have this feature?

    It was fairly common on many early flipper games starting with Humpty Dumpty.

    #3 62 days ago

    Definitely in the dozens, and it wasn’t just one manufacturer

    300

    Bonus used to be collected Only on the playfield. It was later when they added end of ball bonus collect.

    Games like Delta Queen and Bow and Arrow allow you to "score" (not collect) bonus on the playfield.

    I believe TOTAN allows you to collect bonus as one of the bazaar awards.

    #10 62 days ago

    Not sure on EMs. First game that came to mind is TZ. Camera allows you to collect bonus and adds strategy as when to hit/collect it.

    Bally Beat the clock bonus can only be collected with the ball in play, there’s nothing when you drain. Not an EM I know.

    Bally Vampire bonus can only be collected on the playfield.
    Cannes has it on playfield but still collect when you drain.

    #15 62 days ago

    Love the gate leading back to the plunger like in Little chief or space invaders.

    #16 62 days ago

    Gtb Hulk
    Stern Magic
    Gtb Circus

    And many others I am sure...

    #17 62 days ago

    I seem to remember demolition man letting you do this?

    #18 62 days ago

    Super Orbit
    Bally Star Trek
    Eight ball Deluxe
    Ali

    #19 62 days ago

    Star Race
    Incredible Hulk

    Fireball II

    Nip It, with the Gator ball. Best of all, you collect it, release the ball, and the bonus remains, and if you can keep locking the Gator ball, you can run up some scores. Kind of makes up for no special on the game.

    #22 62 days ago

    Gottlieb's Genie

    #23 62 days ago

    1961 Aloha. The Bonus carries over, just waiting to be won at anytime.

    #25 62 days ago

    Common in GTB games too..

    Charlies Angels, Buck Rogers...

    #26 62 days ago

    Jack in the Box/Jumping Jack

    #27 62 days ago

    It's funny you asked this because I just bought a Super Orbit Monday because you can collect the bonus mid game. It's the reason I wanted the game.

    Alien Star is another one that allows you to collect it mid game. But good luck finding an Alien Star.

    Quoted from wonderpuddle:

    Lol at the amount of solid state answers.

    #30 62 days ago

    Stern Cheetah, Ali, and Wild Fyre

    #31 62 days ago
    Quoted from CactusJack:

    Bonus used to be collected Only on the playfield.

    Reason for this? Simple. There were no switches in the ball trough or tray to tell the machine the ball was over.

    #32 62 days ago

    Back to EM pins.. Cherry Bell and Mars Trek both have in ball bonus. Slightly different..Zaccaria Ten Stars has a bonus the builds for the whole game and is awarded after the final ball drains.

    Odin, you are thinking WAY back. When a drained ball just sat there at the bottom of the playfield or in the ball lift area. I was just thinking late 60's early 70's before they came up with End of Ball Bonus count down.

    The EM confusion continues.

    Well being the question was "Any other EMS?", that was better than listing a bunch of DMDS and Solid States to give the OP the answer he was looking for.

    ACD is interesting because while there is a bonus, it doesn't count down and never resets like most on the drain.

    #43 61 days ago

    Bow and Arrow

    #44 61 days ago

    Stern Nugent.

    Not trying to go off topic here, but what would be the best bang for your buck solid state EM I could buy?
