SO it's got some tough wizard goals. :)

The 1 billion casino run one just requires luck and persistence, pure and simple.

The super jack bot is done by shooting a ball into the visor in multiball right after shooting the first one in. Best done by trapping a ball on each flipper, adn backhand both at the same

For the poker one, you need three of a kind, and then to cheat on the poker game to get 4 of a kind. May take a few tries.

To get the dice goal, yo uhave to MAX the dice vgame value at 20 million. to do this keep getting extra balls and locking balls to get the ball into the bumpers a lot. once you have maxed it, try to cheat at the dice game. May take a few tries.

The mega Jack bot is by far the hardest goal. you must complete mega visor. the good news is that progress is saved between multiballs. the bad news is after the first two you must get the second lock the hard way. you can't use the quick open method to lock ball two.

the bonus saucer is meaner then the one in pinbot.

BUG. the game should respond to pressing the extra ball buyin during attract mode. there's an easter egg you cannot trigger without it.

Casino run doesn't get any harder to start after the first time. It is also totally random. Even in tournament mode. This is very much intentional. but you can cheat and bonk bombs off of the center reel only by cheating.

Ive read you can hold down the flippers before a casino run and get Mortal Kombat 3 tips, is that still in there?

I LOVE this table, the lighting is fantastic, and I find it more interesting than Pin Bot, and its amazing how far a reasonable ball save goes towards creating good will when you have that vicious pop bumper area kicking balls down the drain after a plunge.

I remember getting this code.

Wasn't looking forward to this at all, what with it being the exact same layout of a table I found fairly underwhelming. Absolutely loving it so far though, just shows what a difference the ruleset can make to a table. Of course the downside is I can never see myself playing Pin-bot ever again...

Sums up my experience as well! I like playing Pin*Bot, but I can't see myself going back anytime soon.

quite the opposite for me, to many rules/modes are crammed in such a simple layout.

How do I earn extra balls?

When you hear the game tell you "get the extra ball", look at the four inlanes towards the bottom of the screen. One of more of the circles at the top of the inlanes should be lit. All you have to do then is flip the flippers until the lit 'extra ball' circle lines up with where your ball goes and collect it.

Thanks! As for the right thingie where it selects 25 million, cashier, extra ball is there any trick to get the extra ball. All I ever get is cashier 80 % of the times and 25million 20 %.

I haven't found any trick yet. The one time I actually got 'extra ball' from that was a fluke - I tried nudging the table a bunch while the ball was up there and got it to stay for much longer than usual. The options then had a chance to cycle all the way back to 'extra ball'!

Man, I don't know if it's just me, but I find those outlanes to be absolutely evil. They gobble up my balls viciously! And half the time, the bonus saucer makes me have to do a chill maneuver to keep the ball in play.

bonus saucer is not a big deal for me, right nudge usually does the trick but that damn post when visor is up......

It's just you. I've played hundreds of games on the real one and my highscore is around 9.6 billion. Right now my score on PC is around 15 billion even without trying. Nudging is just too powerful.

actually those outlanes are fairly evil, but nudging does help. this is true to real life as well. in the greatest Jack*Bot match ever, many balls were lost down the outlanes.

(look it up. player one got over 6 billion on ball 1 with two casino runs, and player 3 completed mega visor on ball one!)

Another tip. draining during casino run is -5 seconds. making the skill shot after is +10 seconds. totally worth it, as long as you have a no bomb unused.

(never mind, seems that for some strange reason flipper rubbers were actually black from the factory, despite them being red in the artwork on the game itself what the....)
