Mousin' Around

Game Play



The main object of MOUSIN' AROUND is to steal the Cheese, play Multi-ball and score the Jackpot by trapping the Mice and sending the last one home to the Mouse Hole.

Plunger Skill Shot

Sending the ball through the Top Lanes when lit scores 100,000 points times the ball you are on. Therefore you earn 100,000 for ball 1; 200,000 for ball 2; 300,000 for ball 3, etc.

Cheese Feature

Any ramp spots a letter in Cheese. After completing C-H-E-E-S-E the Mouse Hole opens for you to build your Jackpot. Then you are awarded a Cheezy Bonus, (mystery score anywhere from 100 to 500 points, extra ball, special or 1 million points). Any cheese taken will count for Outhole Bonus.

2X AND 3X Multiplier

Complete the top lanes once and earn the 2x bonus multiplier. Complete the Top Lanes twice and earn the 3x bonus multiplier.


Spell M-O-U-S-E-T-R-A-P, either by hitting the stand-up Mouse Trap Targets or by getting the ball throught the lit Return Lanes. Spelling M-O-U-S-E-T-R-A-P sets the Traps that lock the balls. Trap 2 balls and the 3rd ball releases them when it is put into play.


After Multi-ball is achieved, Traps remain up, you must trap the Mice again and send one home to the Mouse Hole to be awarded the jackpot. Once the jackpot is collected you can try for the Jackpot again & again. Jackpot resets for the next ball if collected.


Hitting the Center Targets in sequence lowers the targets and lights the Kickback. The Cheese Loop enables the Left & right Ramps to spot letters in Million. After M-I-L-L-I-O-N is spelled the Mouse Hole opens so you can collect 1,000,000 points.

Extra Ball

Shooting the Left Trap Lane consecutively lights ramps for Extra Ball.

Double Playfield Scores

When making the Right or Left Ramp shots twice in a row the Cheese Target starts flashing for increase value. Make the shot and Double Scoring has started.
