Ball Spectacular will have players taking the plunge over and over again. Pressing the game's button drops one ball from the top and sends it down the peg-filled playfield. Unlike other pachinko-style games, the ball in this game can travel through several ticket gates. If the ball travels through several ticket gates, the player wins the accumulated amount of tickets.
A rotating jackpot gate is located at the bottom of the playfield. If a ball falls through the jackpot gate, a tray filled with several dozen balls located at the top of the machine tips over and drops onto the playfield. The cascading balls travel down the playfield with the player collecting varying amounts of tickets for each gate that the balls fall through.
