Pluses


Rudy: Since gambling requires some degree of luck, so does guessing the right colors on the roulette wheel for bigger scores. Tough skill shot

8Ball: Deep ruleset and solid PF layout make this pin a sleeper. Excellent skill shot and features make this a fun pin. Definitely a strategy oriented game. Keep hiting "21" target during MB to build chips fast (bust target inactive during MB). Smooth ramps. Interesting "second chance" extra ball feature.

Drac: Uncertainty of roulette wheel jackpot adds suspense and keeps things interesting.

Buzz: never played one.

Minuses


Rudy: another one shot game, but getting lucky on the wheel gives you some desire to come back.

8Ball: You want to strangle the dude singing "ridin' on that riverboat" after a while.

Drac: Should subtract points from your score if you lose roulette spin but doesn't -- making it a no brainer to keep shooting the left ramp to get the roulette spin for potential jackpot.

Buzz:
