I think poker is a great theme. 3rd ball Double Your Score is a tough
I've lost me ass at poker! Oh, and that cackling joker as well as
the crappy sounding audio of the ramp lift from the speakers gets old.
Tough skill shot and Barry Oursler "post bump drain" outlanes keep
the challenge going. Jackpot is no cakewalk to collect by having to relock 4
balls up the center ramp to collect. Double playfield score target &
sweeping drop target scoring are nice added touches. Double Yer Score shot
is a challenge.
Ramps too steep to make unless flippers are at full power. Sounds
are lackluster and annoying at times. Jet bumpers seem soggy on most Jokerz
machines i've played compared to other Williams pins of that era.
Double your score feature (shoot both ramps within limited time frame to
double your score on last ball),Giggling and humourous sound
bytes,artwork,motorized center ramp.
Ramps are pretty steep, so it's crucial to have strong flippers on this game
"Silence fool! We are playing!" Very dull game with bad audio.
