On Wizard of Oz Player 4, ball 2 drains down the left outlane and starts There’s No Place Like Home mode. During the mode the left flipper button falls out and causes him to lose the ball. Does he get a compensation ball at the end of the game?
The flipper button was placed back into the game and everyone played their ball 3 without the button falling out again.
Does the amount of time left or the progress made in There’s No Place Like Home at the point of the malfunction have any bearing on the ruling? For example, the player just started the mode versus one shot remaining to get the ball save/continue. Even if the player doesn’t complete the 4 stages to reward the ball save/continue there are still points being scored during this mode, so it seems a compensation ball might be appropriate.
What’s the ruling if there is a major malfunction during Toto Escape mode?
What about during the Million Dollar Shot in NBA Fastbreak?
Maybe there are other games with a similar feature.
