        Now you live near water you might take up fishing?
        It's probably the only game you get a chance to shoot at Jet Ski's too.

              I managed to master Deep Sea fishing 3 times during this game but lost multiball almost immediately after on each occasion and only managed to hit Super Jackpot twice.

                I have a love/hate relationship with this table, had a good game, just shy of 700mil, the a heap of shit games, then this, smashed my GC (1.9Bil), had the superjackpot scoring at 400k at one point, didn't quite make it when it was at 500k. It was being fairly generous with EBs.

                    Multiball, collect the 3 fishing trophies (jackpots) then smash the captive ball (it will start flashing) for super jackpots, rinse and repeat.

                    There are a few other things but this is where the points are, the more runs to supers the more they are worth.

                    Increasing the captive ball, right loop to light then smash it to collect, is a good idea too, EB in video mode most times then a easy MB start at the top.

                    It does get boring, especially on a long game, but when I'm hitting the shots it does feel/flow nice.

                      This is one of the easier DMD games to understand.

                      Hit the ramps (boat) in the middle, alternating left and right and after you light up all the fish shoot past the spinner for a monster fish (bonus)
                      Lock 3 balls, start a multiball, lock another ball, hit it past the spinner hard enough that it hits the top right hand side and you've mastered fresh water fishing, while still in multiball, lock a ball and then hit past the spinner like before and you've mastered tropical fishing. Still in multiball lock another ball, shoot past the spinner again and you've masted deep sea fishing. Then (I think) you just keep hitting it past the spinner to claim super jackpots (Wob or Dedrok can chime in if I'm wrong).

                      Video mode is good for points and an extra ball too.

                        I was to lazy to explain MB

                        Just to add, Double lock (2x balls for double jackpot)

                        Super is collected by smashing the captive ball, as mentioned above

                          Yeah, i'll persevere, all i was doing was getting multiplier L-I-E and multiballs and hitting the port and starboard.

                          It does have a nice feel. seems a pretty forgiving game and the shots aren't too hard. The out and inlanes are narrow, especially after playing some of the older games where they are much less friendly.

                              Lit super jackpot and drained 3 balls straight down the middle and as the 3rd ball drained it announced extra ball lit. This score should have been better but I'll take it.
