Shot is a death trap on my TZ so it only sees my balls by accident. How’s about you’s guys?

As one of two primary objectives, Yes that is my primary shot. Never had a SDTM from mine ever. Might want to bend the hood of that scoop a bit to fully enjoy the game.

I shoot for it as well...

Yeah that ain't right. If it's lit, easy backhand for door panel.

Rarely, I'd rather shoot left ramp right ramp piano. I might shoot at the slot during super slot to collect the award and start another mode.

Piano is a safer shot so I shoot that 75% of the time I think, the other to the slot machine which is way more dangerous when missed haha..

I've been _thinking_ about shooting for the slot machine, since I've been practicing that shot on Family Guy and Dialed In!, but I haven't added that to my strategy yet. Left/Right/Piano gets it done, with other benefits.

I almost always use the piano instead. Slot machine isn't horribly dangerous but the piano is easier and the game feeds you to it

... Always.

Can backhand the shot fairly easily so yes it is a go to shot when I can shoot worth a damn....

Interesting feedback...thanks guys!

I may have to experiment with backhanding from the right flipper. It just seems that the standup target or the post punish me whenever I get the nerve to direct shot the slot machine.

Probably should have added a poll to this post...so I think I will!

same, plus love the 3-way Combo Left ramp/Right Ramp/Piano shot: it's very natural, smooth, and satisfying.

Go for the 4-way!

You’ll dial it in. Check and make sure your machine is level, too - makes a huge difference on this game in particular
