Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0833284A2] The game has a plate pivotably mounted in a housing on two crossing axes (2,3). The plate is pivoted by an actuator and has a ball running track from a start (4) to a finish (6) bounded by limits (7) on its upper side, which forms the play area. The running track has drop holes (8) which can be bypassed by the balls. Switches or sensors beneath the holes detect balls passing through the holes and signal to a controller, which controls meters or indicators. A coin device starts or releases an inserted coin and/or the activates the controller and/or the devices controlled by it.
