Miss O Pinball

This is a replay game that also has an extra ball feature which cannot be disabled, awarding one extra ball per ball in play, if earned. To qualify for extra ball, making A-B-C-D targets light the correspondingly lettered bumpers at top of playfield. Lighting all four A-B-C-D bumpers light the two horseshoe inserts, qualifying the horseshoe lanerollover button (which does not light) to award the extra ball. The schematic indicates that flashing bulbs are to be used for the horseshoe inserts. A ball rolling over thehorseshoe lane button at this point will turn off the flashing horseshoe inserts and quietly award the extra ball, with no knocker sound. There are no inserts or text on theplayfield or backglass to indicate the extra ball has been awarded, thus this event may go unnoticed by an uninformed player. Once the current ball in play reaches theouthole, the ball counter does not increment, the ball is served again to the shooter lane, and the A-B-C-D bumpers turn off to allow a new extra ball to be earned.

The original name for this game was ‘Miss Q’ (a play on the billiards term ‘mis-cue’) but Williams learned the French translation of that was sexually derogatory, so they had to quickly alter the name. It is believed this change occurred before production started.
