Quoted from jlatko:

Finally got an Oompa Loompa super jackpot! Also, had a huge Dots! Dots! Dots! of 1,520,000. I had 5x playfield running and hammered the orbits and captive ball. Think I reset the timer with another computer award to extend it. Still trying for that illusive 3rd golden ticket.
I agree that I see or hear something different every time I play. I think the package is very impressive for an initial code set. Even greater things are coming with further updates, I am sure.

Finally got that third golden ticket tonight. Don’t even know how, but had kid and gobstopper running together. I have to give credit to JJP, no matter how deep in a game you get, they always mix it up quite a bit. I have yet to play a pin coded by keefer that doesn’t keep you absolutely hooked. Some of it is almost sadistic, but what a blast.

After peaking around 6-7mil on a few games, I finally have a decent strategy to start off and it’s made a huge difference. I typically am starting a two ball kid MB, and Found I made the most progress that way. I can usually get gobstopper MB running after one or two KId MB’s, and after that it’s off to the races. My score tonight after getting the third ticket was a little over 13mil. I am on 3 ball with a 10 second BS, but I do have the kickback post installed. It was just absolutely brutal before hand, especially when you add in the pop drains (the new 1.13 seems to have stopped a lot of this surprisingly)

Honestly, after watching some of the streams and comments, I wasn’t sure if I was going to love wonka like my other pins. Boy was I wrong. They really do an amazing job mixing everything together, and even though it’s a new release, the code is incredibly deep and interesting. I’m glad I didn’t listen to some of the naysayers, because this pin is absolutely fantastic. Congrats to JJP and their team, once again I’m pleasantly surprised at how much fun their pins are.

Forgot to add third golden ticket pic. It seems to light only certain tickets for certain achievements. I don’t know which one are which, but if I figure it out I’ll post it up.

Quoted from Lermods:

I think the game is loaded, but it doesn't feel as immersive as the Hobbit or potc. I can't quite put my finger on it, maybe a little more integration between the screen and the playfield. Maybe a little more flash in the playfield lighting or some better sound cues/integration. There's no equivalent of killing smaug or sinking the ship or even hitting big bang, that I can see. Collecting a Wonka ticket doesn't compare I don't think. Maybe have the wonkavision provide more cues like in hobbit.
Love the game and very happy with it, I'll never see the entire game, but i do like being drawn in.

Couldn’t put my finger on it but you’re exactly right. Great game, but just missing some of that over the top ness of killing Smaug, killing witch, etc.

Quoted from bigd1979:

Hope to be in the club tomorrow... super excited as i think this pin is amazing. What to look for other than the usual stuff and clear coat issues? Thanks for any help

Congrats! The only things I needed to do was to slightly bend the gobstopper shooter lane VUK (the midfield VUK from the gobstopper hole). Some people turned up the power to fix it I believe, but the only thing that worked on mine was physically bending it slightly. Other than that, I’ve had no issues.

I even just got my 4th golden ticket tonight. I think I’m missing the wonkavator golden ticket, but I’ve been very close a few times. You will love the game, it’s an absolute blast.
