    Tip 24# : The top prize on Spin and Win is the super-rare Lucky Cue.

    I have to disagree. For the majority of players, the Lucky 8 Cue will only be used for 50 shots and never be recharged again. The 50K coins or 10 scratch cards is, in my opinion, the best two prizes from the spin & win since you can use the coins whenever you want, wherever you want. Unless you play high tiers often, the lucky cue won't be all that useful after those first 50 shots because of the 77k recharge fee.

    Tip 27 - For usual cues, soft power best indicates between 0 and 1/3 of the full distance (full power) released. Between 1/3 and 2/3 indicates medium power. Between 2/3 and 1 indicates high power. For cues with at least 6 force points.... 0 and 1/4 for soft, 1/4 and 1/2 for medium power, 1/2 and 3/4 for high power, and 3/4 and 1 for super high power.

    Tip 28 - Spot any indirect shot if you land into the tricky setup. Make note of the following...
    • Bank Shot - There is a chance to manipulate the cue ball's path with the spin as long as there is no cut-angle effect.
    • Carom Shot - Useful for splitting object balls.
    • Combination Shot - Eventually useful in the beginning if there is a combination shot of two object balls of different types.
    • Follow Shot (indirect) - Useful to make the object ball roll forward after tapping another near the pocket. This only works if there is an enough distance apart.
    • Kick Shot - Often useful for having the cue ball to land into the troublesome region of direct-pocketing. Kick shots can also be useful for different angling of the cue ball.
    • Kiss Shot - If successful, this shot is most powerful and useful for playing around with ball positions.

    Tip 29 - Deadlock combination shots (zero distance between object balls) guarantee that either of the object balls must travel in the straight path from another.

    Tip 30 - In addition from the 28th tip, try to play indirect with anyone!

    Tip 31 - If the cue ball is very close to the object ball, and your angling is close to 0º, your cue ball is less likely to roll forward. If at zero distance, it doesn't roll forward at all. Both cases only work for no vertical spin.

    Tip 32 - Having mind or body fatigue during gameplay? Give yourself a rest for 15/30+ minutes! This is the best way to avoid lack of concentration.

    Tip 33 (a bit different from Tip 32) - If you want to continue playing the game, play for around 30 minutes - 2 hours (though an average playing time is 1 hour). Then, take a rest and perform eye exercises. Playing too much pool can result in lowering vision acuity and raising the eye pressure. Without vision, how would you play the game? ;)

    Tip 34 - It is usually best to take your time deciding and planning the shot according to the ball setup. Rushing through the shots will lower your ball-positioning expectations. Of course, there is no turning back! :smiley:
