Bug Desciption: Launching the ball into the crate from the plunger when Terror from the Crate is lit launches another ball and spots the Tale, but doesn't activate Jackpot opportunities: instead, the game plays as if it was in normal one-ball play. This means that the Spider can be activated, which could lead to another glitch. However, I locked a ball for Stiff multiball, and there was still one ball in play.

Steps to Reproduce: After lighting the fourth light on the Crate, do a full-power plunge into the Crate and the bug will start.

Frequency: 100%? Not sure, it only happened once.

I have a Galaxy Tab 3 (Android 4.1.2) but I have similar problems with all multiballs in SS.

like:
-ball sometimes passes through crate, EBs are then collected (EB lane is right of the crate)
-ball doesn't enter the crate during Terror from the Crate
-camera changes to the plunger and the game finishes the mode. Spider Hole can be activated and mode can be started again.
-one ball disappeares and multiball continues forever, attendant doesn't care

This can lead to a crash of the App. I think that at least part of your problem might have the same reason.

EDIT: I reinstalled game and table and the problems seem to have vanished.
EDIT2: Problems reappear but are reduced when restarting the app before very single game.

I've just reproduced this on the PS4 ... starts about 30 seconds in and lasts for 90 seconds until I lock a ball. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqzFzaYFx40

Thanks for the video, oddly enough when I fired up the Scared Stiff here at the office, I had the same issue occur on the real table. I wasn't able to reproduce it again after several tries. We'll be looking into what the cause may be.

Oof. If it can happen in real life, then it's a ROM issue. Can't really do anything about it, even after a cause is found.
