    The "1000" on the Pinball slots

    FYI, you're not getting the "1000" hit unless you fill up every single ball in the bottom row.

    That is, you can only get the "1000" on the 4th shot for 2-credit machines and 5th shot for 3-credit machines.

    This is a public service announcement based off of multiple videos and in-person sightings of people having a ball drop in the bottom slot and getting excited about (or lamenting, rather) almost hitting 1000.

    No, you did not just almost hit 1000. You had no shot at it without all of the previous balls sitting in that bottom slot first.

    For what it's worth, I cannot find any video or picture of someone hitting this 1000, unlike it's brother Top Dollar. In fact, I've only ever seen 2 balls (25 then 50) in that slot.

    Anyone actually seen this unicorn?

    Many years ago at the mgm(LV), I managed the feat on quarters.. No video or picture proof as I had no cell phone back in the late 90's..

    You're right and most people don't get how it works. Most I have gotten (or seen) in the lower chamber is 2 balls. I've always thought that if you get a Double Diamond on the line with the PINBALL symbol then it should double your shots to 8 (or 10 on the 3 credit version)....thereby giving you a better bonus and much better shot at the 1000. And two Double Diamonds plus PINBALL should give you 16 or 20 shots. How great would that be?

    orignial mechanical pinball slot machine.jpgActually the original Pinball slot that was both a slot machine and a Pinball machine was a popular game back in the late 1990's and was one of the main entire "wall" games at Foxwoods. Anyone remember this game?

    Anchor Gaming (bought out by IGT) created this game and the picture is the creator of the game (it is not me!). This was a very popular slot on the floor at the time and one of my favorite games. Slot technicians hated this slot as it had a real steel pinball, flippers, and bumpers on the top box which required a lot of maintenance and broke down because of so many mechanical components. The last slot of this kind was finally "retired" (aka "thrown away as no third party wanted it) from the Horizon Hotel in Lake Tahoe around year 2005. How's that for a Slot's history. I wonder if @Warren remembers this game?

    I do, but just from seeing it in the gaming magazines. We didn't have this game in Colorado (to my knowledge). Back then we'd see all kinds of great games that would not be approved by the Colorado Division of Gaming for various reasons. If I recall correctly, the first Anchor Game we had was "Wheel of Gold".

    I've never seen the 1000 credit but have certainly seen the 3 double diamond for 1600 credits multiple times.

    I didn't know that it worked like this myself until recently. I used to be one to think I "almost" got the 1000.

    And never seen or got the 1000 myself.

    Argh - I never knew this either.
    There's a Pinball machine at Harrah's Chester and I've been playing it.

    Does this mean that it's impossible and like false advertising?
    Never seen a picture or a video of someone hitting the mythical 1000.
