    Default Does anyone know why you are only allowed to use the pinball outlanes once?

    On every pinball machine, there are outlanes. 2 holes on the outer side of the machine. When you are playing, and the ball enters one of these holes, the ball shoots back into play. However, there is a catch, you are only allowed to enter these outlanes once per game. After the ball goes down the drain, you will be allowed to use the outlanes once again. What I don't get is why they only allow you to use these once.uc browser shareit appvn

    Are you talking about the kickbacks?

    It depends. There are many tables that allow you to reuse the kickback, but you have to hit certain targets to relight it. Other tables don't have this option.
