In order to gain access to the Wizard goals, you must complete the Standard ones first. I apologize in advance for how long this will be, I am very thorough in my explaining. Here's how you conquer the Wizard goals in High Roller Casino:

Score a Break the Bank Jackpot: This can be scored during Break the Bank, which is started by collecting 100 chips. Chips can be earned by:

1. Winning the different casino games
2. Hitting the Win Chip targets (one per hit)
3. Through Roll N Win as a random award

You start the game with 10 chips. Once you reach 100 (this isn't always obvious), every arrow shot lights up. Shoot any one of them to start Break the Bank. At this point, you just have to hit one flashing arrow with the 4 balls you will now have to score a Jackpot and complete the goal.

Activate Super Surprise: This goal is a bit of a grind, as it involves continuously collecting Roll N Win on the center ramp. It is lit at the start of the game. When you collect Roll N Win, the display shows you two dice, one on the left and one on the right, with an award on each. Hitting the left flipper takes the award on the left, and vice versa. Every time Roll N Win is started, the lights move around the wheel on the backglass the number of spaces the dice you last picked was (so if you picked an award where the dice roll was 5, you'll move 5 spaces around the wheel). When the light goes around the wheel completely, you start a Super mode. Roll N Win is relit by hitting the target on the right loop (it's very hard to see unless you're at a good angle. It is shown by a small purple arrow). So yeah, basically keep collecting Roll N Win and ALWAYS pick the higher dice number, regardless of what the award is as this will cut the number of shots you need pretty much in half if you're lucky. Here is the order of awards for making it all the way through the wheel:

First time: Super Pops
Second time: Super Loops
Third time: Super Spinner
Fourth time: Super Surprise

Super Surprise starts as soon as you pick the last dice needed to go across the starting space for the fourth time. Once Super Surprise starts, the goal is complete.

Note: Every time you collect a Super Mode, it takes an additional hit on the Roll N Win target to relight Roll N Win on the center ramp. Ball control is a MUST when hitting that target!

Score a Casino Frenzy Super Jackpot: This can be earned during the game's wizard mode, Casino Frenzy. To get to Casino Frenzy, you must win all of the casino games once.

Slots: Simply hit the slot machine to send the reels spinning and collect your winnings (which might be little or nothing). If you get a decent spin (this happens more often than not), you win the game. Otherwise, hit the Slot Machine to lock a ball and then hit it again for another spin.

Roulette: This is earned after the ball has bounced around in the bumpers enough. Once that is done, the center ramp lights to play Roulette. The more pop bumper hits you get before playing Roulette, the more colors you "bet", making your chances of winning higher. Simply have the ball roll in the hole of a color you bet on to win some points, chips and the game.

Poker: This is a tough game to win as the house is super tough on the player. There are 4 drop targets to the left of the game, facing the player. Hitting all 4 of them plus the target behind them all gives you a hand to play with, shown by the card lights in front of the target bank. If the hand is terrible, simply hit all 4 targets again and you'll get a new hand (hitting targets is essentially drawing cards). Once you think you have a decent hand, get the ball into the right orbit to test your luck against the house. Win the hand to turn the Poker light on.

Craps: There is one lone target on the left hand wall of the game, near the slot machine with a flasher above it and a green light in front of it. This is the target you must hit. Not sure exactly how this game works, but rest assured, hitting the target will eventually win you the game. How many hits you need differs (depending on your luck) from one hit to close to 4 or 5 (the highest I've encountered). You'll know you won when the green Craps light turns on solid.

Hi-Lo: You qualify for this game by spelling H-I-L-O in the in/outlanes. Remember to use your flippers to change the unlit letter so that you can collect them the next time the ball comes down the inlane! Once you have done this, shoot the right orbit to play Hi-Lo. The game will hold the ball and the display will show you 5 cards, with the first one being revealed to you. Hit the left flipper if you think the next card will be lower than the first card or the right flipper if you think it will be higher. If you guess wrong, the game ends and you must re-qualify Hi-Lo. If you're correct, you have the choice to continue playing for more points and chips or taking the winnings and running. Since you only need one correct guess to win this game, I would suggest just ending the game after your first correct guess because if you progress further and screw up, the game will NOT count as completed.

Hint: Try to stack this up with Poker to kill two birds with one stone!

Blackjack: You use the two "Hit Me" targets on either side of the slot machine to play this game. Each hit on the one of the targets draws a card for you. After you've gotten at least 2, you can either shoot the left orbit to test your luck against the dealer OR continue pulling cards. If you hit 5 targets and don't go over 21, you win automatically. The house is particularly unlucky in this game, so I highly suggest hitting 2 targets and then hitting the left orbit to finish out the game. Whatever method you use, winning a hand turns on the Blackjack light.

Hint: Hitting enough center ramp shots and random awards through Roll N Win will give out "Cheat Game"s. This basically means if Cheat Game is lit and you lose a casino game for whatever reason, you will automatically win it instead. This is VERY useful for Hi-Lo, Poker and Craps!

Once all games have been completed, Casino Frenzy will start blinking. Hit either orbit or the center ramp to start the mode (the slot machine may also do this as well). This starts a 4 ball mode with a medium length ball saver. To score the Super, you must hit every casino game once to collect the six Game Jackpots. For Craps, hit the Craps target. For Roulette, hit the ramp. For Slots, hit the Slot Machine. For Poker and Hi-Lo, hit the right orbit. Once each shot has been hit once, the center ramp starts flashing. Hit it for the Super Jackpot and the goal will then be complete.

Score a 4 Way Combo: This is the simplest out of the Wizard goals. There are two slingshot kickers (one above each flipper) and two more kickers slightly above those (you'll notice it kick the balls around during normal play). Trip all 4 slingshots within a few seconds of each other to get the 4 Way and spot the goal. This is somewhat luck based, so don't get discouraged if it doesn't happen right away. I will look further and see if there are other combos that can be used instead.

Score a Super Duper Mega Extreme Jackpot: This one is ridiculous. First, start Slot Machine Multiball, either through Roll N Win or by locking two balls in the Slot Machine (every other shot to the slots will lock a ball the first time around) and hitting the Slot Machine again. This will give you three balls to contend with a short ballsaver to start. You have 4 Jackpot shots: left orbit, Slot Machine, center ramp and right orbit. Hitting a shot once gives you a Jackpot, twice gives you a Double, and three times gives you a Triple. STAY AWAY FROM THE SLOT JACKPOTS UNTIL YOU HAVE COLLECTED THE TRIPLE ON THE OTHER THREE SHOTS. If you collect the Slot Triple and hit it a fourth time, you will collect a Super Jackpot based on how many other Triple Jackpots you collected beforehand. If you didn't have all three Triples when you collected the Super from the Slot Machine, everything will reset and you must collect all of the Jackpots again. Once you have hit both orbits and the center ramp 3 times each, pound on the Slot Machine until you collect the Super, which will give you the Super Duper Mega Extreme Jackpot and the goal. Enjoy the screaming and the approximately 100 million, you sharpshooter.

Hint: When you run out of ballsaver (Shoot Again stops flashing), trap balls on the flippers and pick off the Jackpots one by one. This will take some serious ball control, but it will ensure you don't lose the ball (you fail if you get back down to 1 ball) or accidentally collect the Super on the Slot Machine.

This one is difficult to complete, but it can be done. Send me a message or leave a comment here if you need more help or I need to clear something up!
