Not easy to hit the on switch, but when you do 🤑


You make it look easy Kane. The way I look at it 150 odd hits at 100K with no extra balls and assuming you had 3 lightups that's 50 hits per lightup. No wonder you are drooling mate. That is some game. I had one game with 3 lightups and it felt I was playing the lit bumpers forever.. concentrating...concentrating... finished with 4 million. I don't even know how my 6 million game happened. Well done mate that is some endurance and I you have set a high standard. I really like the top playfield in this game.

Hoping to do much better than this, but I am struggling

Tricky game legin. Ive been learning how to trap the ball to light the poppers. I’ve been holding up the flippers up and letting the ball come down to the bottom playfield and nudging the opposite side of the cab just before the ball touches the sling. This takes momentum out of the ball and makes it easier to trap. Hitting the ball on the fly puts side spin on the ball and is likely to drain .


11,440,000 I’m claiming a fluke. Scored most points with one ball. That rare EM rhythm.

4,520,000  This certainly plays faster than the one I got my ass kicked on this past weekend in league finals.

Never thought it was possible with my talent on this one.  There's a picture of a clown on the playfield, that's how I'm playing this table, like a bloody clown.

Haha. Love it! Everyone loves a clown. Sort of becomes meditative watching the ball drain until bang! I want to punch the clown in the nose..  OOPs! well he does look smug pointing to the balls.
