    Hey all. Question about the 1,000 credit spot on Pinball. Well two actually.

    1.) Is it only possible to get the 1,000 credit spot once all of the bottom spots are filled up? Or can it hit it whenever?

    2.) Has anyone ever hit it? Youtube does not show up any videos for it.

    Thanks!

    I was under the impression you had to fill up the whole bottom, but I've never seen it either

    Yeah the layout of it makes it seem every one on bottom needs filled up. Interesting that you've never seen it either. I've seen Top Dollar ones but never this

    Yes, all bottom “spots” need to get filled before you get the 1000 credit “spot”.

    This topic is by far the most confusing, frequently asked, and often completely misunderstood facts about Pinball.

    You'll see this inconspicuous wording on Pinball machines (black text in a white box)--usually on the middle glass near the 3 reels:

    Bonus chamber award can only be won sequentially left to right.

    Let's break it down... The 1000 credit ball is all the way to the right in the bonus chamber, so the only way to light it up is to get all the balls sequentially to the left also...

    While I haven't got the 1000 credit ball, I have landed 3-double diamonds on Pinball twice. Once was on a 2 credit machine that paid $1600 and the other time was on a 3 credit machine that paid $2400.

    Truly a white buffalo hit for sure! No videos, no pictures on line. And besides being a very popular game, since it first came out nearly 30 years ago, I have never heard of anyone that actually did get to the 1,000.

    Which is crazy, since you are only talking about 1,675 credits won, in total, to beat the bonus on a 3 credit machine. And just 1,175 on a 2 credit version. Yes, you need to pop each bridge on the bottom, to get to the 1,000 credits.

    That really is not all that much, and yet no accounts of anyone actually doing it.

    Obviously it has to be in the math, so its possible to do. And yet, here we are LOL.

    You will never know the machines hold by looking at it. But, the best value for Pinball is to find an older version, that histrionically should have better returns. And when you find those, the best version of that is the 3 credit one.

    The 3 credit version doubles all base wins over the 2 credit (1 credit is for the base game and 1 is for the bonus. 3 credits has 2 credits base and still 1 credit bonus)

    And with the 3 credit version, you get 5 shots VS 4 and the bottom run has a bonus 500 credit rung.

    That means betting that one extra credit not only doubles all your base wins. But you also get the extra ball and a bigger potential slot to land in in the bonus, for the same 1 credit side bet you make to play it.

    It really is crazy that there is absolutely no video or pictures of it. Heck, there are videos of 1,000 Top Dollar @ $100 credit being hit. But no Pinball 1,000 credit at any denom.

    That is interesting about the old version, I never knew that. Any way to tell the old from new? Or are the old ones just simply, the old ones lol.

    This is a still from one of Diana's vids. She was playing 3 coins. Is this set up with the configuration you're talking about? The 500 credit slot in the bottom row is something that's only there when you play 3 coins?

    I guess that would also mean that to hit the 1,000, all 5 shots would have to slip to the bottom row?

    Speaking of Pinball, this hit at Cosmo a couple of days ago - 3 DDs on the line on a $400 spin, for a $320k hit.

    Given the smallish number of people that are going and so many fewer trip reports, it sure feels like I'm seeing a lot of big payouts. Maybe pent up bankroll means people are playing more, or higher.

    I have been looking for videos or pictures of that unicorn hit for years. I have even asked long time slot staff at several casinos and they have not seen the 1000 credit hit either.

    When you land the Pinball symbol on the payline, is the bonus payout amount determined at that point and the balls just add up to that amount? Or is the dollar amount of each ball determined when you hit the bonus button? If it’s the later, then that could explain why we never see the 1000 credit ball. It’s easy to guess one number in the lotto yet very difficult to guess all numbers plus the powerball...

    You can tell the old from the new by the cabinets. The newer ones have LEDs and such, and are nice and shiny. Find the most beaten in version, with a nice worn look and faded reel set. That's your pigeon right there!

    Yup! All 5 shots would have to hit the bottom. The difference in the 3 coin bonus, from the 2 coin, can be seen in the pics you posted. The 2 coin is missing that 500 credit rung.

    The version D was playing should be the best one out there. Again, that 1 extra credit bet gets you double payouts in the base game, the extra shot in the bonus and the $500 rung, that honestly no one is fucking hitting anyway LOL
