    If the ball falls in within 5 seconds it is considered a good ball. if it falls in after the time allotted the ball is replaced on the edge from where it fell, but not so close to the edge that it will fall in again

    Except on pay machines where everything down stays down. The 5 second rule still applies and the inning passes to the opponent.
