I am having a blast with Judge Dredd. The upper left flipper has three shots (two ramps and one target). The upper right flipper has three shots (one loop, one ramp, and one VUK). That's a total of six different shots with the upper flippers.

Contrast this with machines like High Speed where the upper flipper is almost entirely about hitting a single ramp.

What other machines have upper flippers with lots of different shots?

JP has the Helicopter Pad, Egg, T-Rex Paddock, Turbo Bumpers, etc.

The metallic "ping" sound when you drill the T-Rex Paddock will never grow old.

STTNG - has a few different shots with the upper flipper, i.e., the ramp and several holes like the Advance Rank hole.

I can hit 5 shots off the top flipper on NGG: targets above slam ramp, left ramp, putting green, Bud, and Buzz. Agree that JP's upper flipper is well used. MSF's upper flipper is used to hit multiple letter targets, the sarcophagus, and loop to ice cave. Spiderman's upper flipper is mostly to hit the Venom ramp, but you can also reach Sandman, Doc Oc, and Green Goblin targets from it.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but F-14 and Big Guns has good upper playfield flipper action.

Tommy has a few from upper left flipper.

Target Alpha.

I disagree on this one. The machine has lots of flippers, but each has a limited number of shots. In the case of the right mini-flipper, there is only a single shot!

FGY upper left flipper hits:
-beer can
-death target (if up)
-monkey jp shot
-stewie targets
-captive ball

Wrong! The right flipper has the witch shot, the crystal ball targets, and between the tree bumpers (and maybe one or two other shots, I have not played the game). I also don't think it is a mini-flipper on the right (next to the shooter lane) but a regular Williams/JJP flipper.

Also, the castle playfield has the castle door shot, the rescue targets and the looping shot.

I was thinking of this one. That's a full flipper?? It feels like a mini flipper. Must be an illusion.

You said each flipper has limited number of shots and I commented that there are several shots for two of the upper flippers which clearly is an example of what the original post was asking.

The one flipper in the house mini playfield is an example of a single shot flipper which has no significance to this thread topic.

Haunted House (upper & lower pf)

Swords of Fury has the upper playfield flipper that has a 5-bank of drop targets to shoot at, and the other upper flipper has the ramp, the Ogres Alley u-turn, and the first 5 of the AVENGER spot targets all to shoot for.

Corvette is one of my favorite upper flippers. One shot is a ramp and other is a loop. Both are strong flow shots.

Xmen upper flipper has several shots. Shadow has threesome properly set up, one is an auto bounce to mode start.

Congo upper left flipper:

1. Dual VUK that can either feed ball to AMY or to the pop bumpers
2. Into the volcano for ball lock
3. Into the pops and up the volcano ramp (very hard but I've done it a few times before)
4. Perimeter defenses stand up target

+ 1 for corvette!

Pistol Poker has a ton of stuff to shoot for with the upper flipper: 4 standup targets, loop shot, Joker scoop, 2 pop bumpers, Ace of Spades hole, 4 rollover lanes, scoop to/from lower playfield. There's some other stuff up there too, but those can't really be hit directly....

TFTC, Big Hurt, Gladiators, Black Knight, to name a few.
