Another deceptively difficult table, tonnes of easy big points available but quite hard to stay alive. I think this is a good score, was struggling to get over a million then scraped past on my last ball only to get two more extra balls after it for this score.

I've joined the list of Cab Casualties. I've put in plenty of time trying to catch up to some very good scores but only managed to smoke up the cab. The Pinscape interface output has failed. Got a low voltage zap followed by loss of machine interface. Hopefully not out for too long. Could be that new covid variant Mu.

973900. Still coming after the millionaires. I’ve got a strategy and have reliable shot for the 5 but 6 is a bit sketchy and crucial for a 200k+ ball. Definitely need 3 good balls and one exceptional ball to be in the hunt to crack the 1million.

I found I was scoring better by ignoring the bonus and Gold and stick to pounding the spinners. It only takes a couple of shots to max it to 1k spins and it's fast scoring after that.

There's a good chance I wont play anymore games this comp but we'll see.

Today was my only day to play for a while, Spent about an hour on this one and I'm a little disappointed I couldn't get a higher score.

I’ve spent many hours and can’t crack the million. Crakkers is putting me in the bunny boiler

Hey Mozzie I wondered where you’ve been. All the best, relax and lick the wounds and looking forward to seeing you up and running soon.  I hope your injury isn’t too serious. We certainly not as serious as the flogging Mrs Moz gave us in Jungle Princess

Up and going a little bit ….better getting the drip out of my leg a real pain but necessary…

going to switch machine on tomorrow so I may have a couple of games but Elise has to get a score in so she’ll be playing hard and she loves CSI ….

Game 7 comes to a close and it's congratulations to kane who has returned to his winning ways. We 2nd place goes to PPLBob and third place on the podium goes to Crakkers with the top 3 all cracking the million points for a single game. RusstyT stays in the race with a strong 4th. Mozzie gets a couple of points over Mrs Moz and legin does enough to not earn the spoon on this one.
