and a ball one score of just 0 263M Mats got the kind of ball Daniele has as he drains with just one more shot needed for his second Coffin Multiball Daniele gets his first Coffin Multiball on ball two and ends just behind Mats on 6 253M On his third ball Mats starts his second Coffin Multiball after starting double scoring from the spider wheel but only manages on jackpot before his game ends on 9 995M Daniele opts to extend and start Crate Multiball which takes him past Mats score stopping on 10 857M to take the first game 1 0 to Daniele Game two was on Daniele s choice of Radical Game
