Not keeping correct score

A very common problem that is either a bad opto, if a newer machine, or a bad score microswitch. Start a game and drop the ball in the bottom hole to the top hole one at a time and look for your score. When you drop a ball and get the same score as the last hole then the micro(or opto) for that hole is bad.

Playing skee-ball like a winner

Skee-ball is a bowling type arcade game where each player gets 11 balls that they have to roll up a ramp to try and get it into one of the holes at the end of the ramp. Each of the holes have a point value between 10 and 100 based on how easy they are to get the ball into.

Not all skee-ball machines are created equal so if you pick a machine to begin with you should stick to that machine. There can be small differences in the tilt or angle of the ramp that can really mess with your aim. You might think that changing machines will change you game but sticking it out and figuring out what is messing you up will actually make you a better skee-ball player.

Most people play and try to get the ball into one of the two 100 holes at the very top of the board but these two holes are the hardest to hit and if you miss in most cases result in no points. If you play with your friends you can make sure that you always get some points and maybe even the high score by always aiming for the 50 point hole in the top center of the board.

The reason that you should aim for the 50 point hole is because even if you miss this hole you have a very high chance of winning 10, 20, 30 or even 40 points. So while everyone else is failing to get the ball in to the 100 point hole you can rack up the points with this technique. But remember that in the end it is just a game and you are all out to have a good time.
