Coney Island

Bally's second machine, and the noticable difference to the player is the removal of the manual ball lifter and the possibility of playing up to three extra balls - for a total of 8 balls!
Since in theory more balls increase the chance of getting bigger payouts, the max payout was dropped 50% from Bright Lights to 100.
Much more substantial changes occured inside the cabinet. The addition of extra balls required units to keep track of how many balls were played/could be played. In addition, a mechanism from the one-ball days made an appearance - the reflex unit. The reflex unit on this game was used to decrease the chance of getting an extra ball.
In addition to the reflex unit, the mixers also were ported over from one-balls. On this machine, it means that the higher your payout odds, the less likely it is to get each extra ball.
The techno section has more information on how the reflex unit and mixers work.
