X The Ball

Rare's first venture into the world of coin-operated menagerie started with X the Ball, an enthralling game of skill that required dexterity, nerve and cunning to come out on top! If you've got your heart set on stardom you'll need to analyze the screen when an image of a football match appears and then place an "X" over the area you believe should host the missing ball. There are five chances you'll have to place your "X", and if your intuition and accuracy proves to be correct, you'll be awarded with a steady stream of tickets from the cabinet. With chances to win up to 500 tickets, a selection of fast-paced action found in the bonus games, and the anthropomorphic soccer guru, Mimo-Man ever-present, X the Ball offers a unique challenge to football and arcade fans.
