I triggered the freeze about 3 or 4 times running through the entire game.
MAME will tell you save states aren't supported for this game, but they save and load fine, so you can recover your progress if you hit a freeze.
Not ideal for the average gamer though as it can be really frustrating for them to have their game play halted like that introducing a horrible gaming experience because they are not expecting it.
