Let's take a deep dive into the enchanting realm of Pinball Mysteries! Have you ever found yourself wondering why the pinball sometimes behaves as if it has a mind of its own? We're on a quest to uncover the secrets behind 'The Curse of the Wandering Ball.' You wouldn't believe how players have described certain machines as if they were under a mystical spell. Is it all about skill, or could there be a touch of magic at play here?

Has anyone here experienced anything similar?

Ball spin is almost impossible to see. When I first started playing, I thought some machines had magnets by the flippers, because the backspin was so strong but invisible for a novice.

Watching how some players can basically flail and yet hardly ever drain seems like magic. It's as if the laws of physics are temporarily suspended while they're up.
