Was playing Monopoly in a tournament yesterday and had some weird stuff with ballsaves:
during multiball, I plunged the ball immediately and hit the jackpot. While I was doing that the other two balls from the lock went in the pops and down the middle. I ignored them to get more plunges in during ball save, but there wasn’t a ball save this time. After the tournament I played the game again and confirmed that there was a ball save during multiball, as I’m used to in the past.
On ball three, I short plunged and got the ball on the flipper without any switch hits. I shot the bank to start cash grab, and the ball drained straight down the middle. The ball save did not turn on, but when I drained my ball ended. So I got no ball save at all ball 3, although I remember having it lit ball 1. I then watched the next two players play their ball 3s, and both got a ball save.
Is this a bug, or is there some hidden logic going on in either case?
