New Pinball Dictionary: Walk Off


Walk Off

1. Occurs when the last player of the last ball of the game comes from behind and passes all of the other players. As soon as the player realizes they have won, and further play is unnecessary, they walk away from the machine while the a ball is still in play.

Example: “Player 4 is down by 2 million. All she has to do is make the Iron Monger Super Jackpot and she will have a walk off win.”

2. Occurs when the last player of the last ball of the game already has a higher score than the other players before starting. As a result, they can just plunge, walk away and allow the last ball to drain.

Example: “… and Player Four wins in a walk off as he is already ahead by 5 million points on the last ball.”
