MPF includes a multiball feature which can be used to automatically start and stop multiballs.

Each multiball in MPF has a separate name. There are several different types of multiballs (run until a single ball is left, timed multiballs, etc.) Multiballs can also be configured with multiball saves so that (for example) any balls lost in the first 15 seconds of a multiball are automatically re-launched back into play.

MPF also supports stacking of multiple multiballs at the same time.

Balls can be locked for multiball with the related Multiball Locks config section.
