So happened to be looking at the high scores tagged to the machine and saw that nobody (recently) rolled the score.

I’ve had my Spider-Man since 2002 and have yet to roll the score. Came close in the 900’s but never rolled yet.

Got a Paragon last year and rolled it within a year.

So has anyone rolled their Spider-Man ? What strategy and settings did you use ? Nothing really valuable gets stored to build up over subsequent balls so I can only see focusing on getting extra balls.

Curious how others may have rolled this puppy!

Owned one for awile some time ago and like you, got close to rolling it over but fell just shy at 908,980.
Extra balls for sure and then
collect, collect, collect the bonus.
That's about it.

Just saw this. I grew up with an Amazing Spider-Man and rolled it twice. Once to 1,960,000. Advance the muliplier as quickly as possible. Down the drop targets quickly to get the extra ball. Once multiplier is maxed and the bonus is at 20k try to get the ball held in the lit 1-2-3 hole so it will use up the maxed bonus without actually lowering the multiplier. Great way to add 100k to your score during gameplay and still get the 100k bonus at the end of the ball.

When i drain my score mid ball in the 2 hole it doesn’t keep my 20k... I’ll need to build it up again ...is that what you meant, or is there a setting that it keeps the score after a mid ball drain?

You lose the 20k but you keep the multiplier IIRC. You have to build up the 20k again.
