Pinball player has once-in-a-lifetime action during game expo (VIDEO)

A Michigan man got an old school pinball version of a hole-in-one when his silver ball got stuck perfectly between bumper and kicker — and wouldn't stop.

Steve Muller was playing the Af-Tor pinball game by Wico Thursday at the 2014 Michigan Pinball Expo when something he never seen before happened.

The ball started bouncing repeatedly back and forth between a bumper and kicker at a rapid speed and kept scoring.

The 24-year-old Muller said the once-in-a-lifetime action kept going for a few minutes before finally one of the coils on the bumper broke and the ball rolled away, reported MailOnline.

"I never saw anything like that before in my life," he said. “As soon as it started happening I knew I should pull my phone out and start recording it."

Muller said the ball bounced between the two panels for about 30 seconds before he realized this was a crazy occurrence and he risked losing his game by pulling out the phone and starting to film it.

Though he was in the middle of a large group of serious pinball players Muller said none of the other patrons nearby noticed the rapid sequence happening in the game and came over to check it out.

"The dinger was going off but no one was paying attention," he said.

Though unnoticed at the conference later that night he posted the video online which has garnered hundreds of thousands of views on Youtube through Sunday morning.

"Everyone keeps asking me if I got the high score," Muller said.

Unfortunately he didn’t since the two objects did not generate a lot of points. He said he got about 200,000 points but the high score was almost double that.

And that's what passes for action in the pinball world.
