    Reliable way to hit the joker hole?

    Anyone found a way to hit the joker hole reliably?

    The only wizard goal I have left is to score a super jackpot but its hard enough starting Mega mode (sometimes its a reward) let alone trying to hit it during multiball (not that I've ever managed to complete the 5 cards on the upper playfield anyway!)

    Nudge the ball out to the side away from the flipper so when you smack the ball you will have a slightly better angle to go shoot it up to the hole. Also shooting the top card (10) of the target bank will have the ball bounce up to the hole. Another way is to shoot the right ramp loop, it's not uncommon for the ball to trickle down into the hole if it doesn't quite make it around the ramp. Not the first choice but sometimes only choice.

    Multiball progress carries over but it's hard to get more than 2 multiballs. But you can restart them multiple times so yeah making the joker hole is important.
    Also make really sure you have the skill shot plunge to the joker hole on point. If you have multiball lit you can start it on the skill shot.

    Heh. I've only edited the save to collate progress and scores from other versions (including play on a second pc) or to award a goal that is bugged but I have completed.

    That said, You don't know how tempted I am to just give myself the safe cracker 26 coin goal. I was on 19 when I dropped my phone in the toilet and lost all my progress! It's the one goal I can't transfer progress into my pc save as in typical farsight fashion they've still not got a coin collection screen on mobile so I had no idea which 19 I had. (and now never will)

    Nope. Still almost impossible. Got it about 1 in 20. Skill shot also seems like it's 1 pixel accuracy too.

    Is the real table tuned thus way?

    I seem to hit it about a third of the time on the plunger shot. I aim for just past the white "P' light lane (one on the very far left) at the very top. The ball will tend to slow down just past it, then drop into the joker poker hole.

    Yeah. I found this too with a few more tries. Still no where near the goal though. I've moved onto other tables for a bit. Will come back to this one.
