1957 Bally Circus pinball (2 player)

Description: Bally Circus pinball, 2 players. This is not to be confused with the 1973 Bally Circus (same game title, but the 1973 version is a four player game.) Nearly identical to the 1956 Bally Balls-A-Poppin', Bally Circus also featured multiball play. Variable multiball, up to 9 balls. Four rollover buttons advance Wild Ball counter on the playfield. A ball landing in the kick-out hole launches all Wild Balls from the left shooter lane, starting multiball. Having multiple balls on the playfield makes for more frequent hitting of the rollover advance buttons and landing in the kick-out hole, therefore a continuous multiball session often can be achieved, lasting a long time. During a game, every rollover and lit bumper causes a small knocker to pop, and this sound becomes very exciting during multiball. Although the backglass Wild Ball counter stops at 6, the game is equipped with 9 balls to allow for a continuous multiball experience. 3 or 5 ball play. Bally made a third pinball in this series, though not multiball, the 1957 Bally Carnival.
