Thanks to you guys pushing me, I did something I never did before: I ROLLED THE SCORE!  :spot:

Lol, playing through the viewfinder was way too hard. If I try again, pictures will have to do.

I think I found a bug in the game!

 

If you are on ball 3 and get the "extra ball" (with the 2 Atari symbols and the X)....if you tilt....no extra ball.  The game ends.  I'll have to try that again, as maybe it was just a fluke. 

 

Not a bug...the manual says this is what it's supposed to do :(

So I made it to around 700k after getting the multipliers to 9 and bouncing up and down in the left lane for 60 times, maybe? I knew I had to get the ball back to the plunger to video this, and I did! Sorry for the cheap camera, dog barking, tv in the other room. LOL

Well, I am not breaking any records with this one.  I'm using emulation right now to play and it is not the best way with just a keyboard. Here goes...

From what I recall greenween did that on "ball 1" (not sure how many extra balls were used)

 

Pretty sure he could have rolled it a few times as he had nudging the bonus lane pretty well "dialed in"

 

Nicely done Greenween !!!
