Quoted from Arcane:
Nice improvements, Matt.
How does it feel to play that machine? What are the tricks to win a play?
The feel is really different than playing with flippers. The trick is timing slight nudges. For example when the ball fires out of the right kick out towards the bottom hole, I found that if I nudge to the right just as it fires I’m more likely to get it in the hole otherwise it’ll loop about half the time. Then im in defense to bounce off of other posts to keep it in play.
Specific scores light the red special bumpers up top, usually 3 times in between 100k-150k. Each hit of the red is a free credit which makes the projector advance 1 number and engages the coil under the slide mech so a nickel isnt needed.
Now the real trick is getting the Green Super Specials. They rarely light but ive had them lit legitimately 3 times when the game lands on 315k exactly. The payout is sporadic. From 1 to 50 free games. Highest I’ve gotten manually testing it is 5 free games. Not sure how the game knows when to give different payouts but it does. Amazing for such old technology.
Other than lighting specials, if your score hits the high score on the cards you get free games too.
