I used to like this on my cab, i don't like it so much on the desktop




Yea, this one gets a fair bit of play on my cab - not sure if I've ever played it on the laptop?

My best is a bit under 1.5mil, but that's a 5 ball score, so I'll be happy to crack the million in 3 balls.......watch me screw this right up!


Edit: Just checked and I have played it on the laptop - exactly the same high score, so I must've copied the nvram from one to the other at some stage.

Now I don't know where I got my best score!:unsure

Again, an installed-but-never-played table. Awesome rules, great challenging table, the "give or take" multiplier for the royal flush is a very nice feature. Played a couple of times today and managed to do 811.630. will be aiming for the million next 💪

Yesssssss. After countless tries, I finally managed to get over 1.000.000 and got 1.247.300. 1st time I'm on the podium (hope it's gonna last ^^). Love this game.






Looks like you lit the candle and played well into the early hours of the morning judging by the time of your post.

Looks like he's playing in Belgium, so probably more likely that was posted around dinner time.
