Skill A: Line Pattern
A line is formed by combination of patterns. Different players have their own style to apply these patterns. Although you can ignore these patterns and calculate the line total each time, but it is difficult and not funny. A genius will not do this.
Head and tail combinations: for example 14,19,23,28,37,46 etc.
Triple combination: for example 159,258,357,456, etc.
Five combinations: for example 33333,366,339 etc.
Skill B: Possibility to make a line
Players need not to remember all these patterns. Think about that. No matter how many cells in the line, the possibility of making a line is still 1/5. Although the ball numbers looks weird at one direction, you can solve it at another direction very easy. Do not worry, each cell has 8 directions, ah.
Skill C: Impact from levels
In fact, level 1 to 7 is the most difficult because of the increasing numbers. Players need some efforts to accept these new patterns. From level 8 to 70, enjoy catching fishes.
Skill D: Impact from advance levels
In advance levels, there are no special feature of 5+5=10. The combinations of patterns become very complicated. For the beginners, whenever you try the advance levels, press the new game button again and again until the target numbers are 08. It is more easy.
Skill E: Trap of more-cell
The later the level, the more the cell. It looks more difficulty. In fact, you can get more mark from two short lines than one long line. Finish it by short lines.
Skill F: Increase or decrease line length
For the first line, some players like to draw a long line. It makes the subsequent lines more easy. If so, you are suggested to draw and long line randomly. System will tell you the total. Then, make your decision to increase, decrease line length or try another line.
Skill G: Try before take mark
It is no problem to try lines. System will tell you the sum with no ranking decrease. Just press the re-try button anytime as you like. However, be careful at the advance levels. They have time limit.
Skill H: Two short lines are better than one long line
For example, 3 consecutive balls all numbered as 5. You have two ways to get marks. Mark difference looks like only 15 marks. No, in fact, the difference can be 1015 marks. Let me show you the calculation.
Assume that you make 50 lines and each get 20 marks subsequently.
Method One: Line 3 balls, mark 1 * 15 = 15
Afterward mark (2 * 20 = 40) + (3 * 20 = 60) + (...) + (51 * 20 = 1020)
Press take mark button to take a total mark of 15 + (2 +51) / 2 * 50 * 20 = 15 +26500 = 26515
Method two: Line the first and second balls, then the second and third balls, mark (1 * 10) + (2 * 10) = 30
Afterward mark (3 * 20 = 60) + (4 * 20 = 80) + (...) + (52 * 20 = 1040)
Press take mark button to take a total mark of 30 + (3 +52) / 2 * 50 * 20 = 30 +26500 = 27530
Mark difference is (30-15) + 50 * 20 = 1015
Skill I: Take the bonus as late as possible
Take the bonus at first line, scoring 20 marks * 1 * 5 bonus = 100. Take the bonus at thirty line, scoring 20 marks * 30 * 5 bonus = 3000.Difference is 3000 - 100 = 2900.
Skill J: Be careful corners and edges
When you want to pass a level, be careful corners and edges. Inside-cells have 8 directions. Edges have 5 directions while corners have 3 directions only. They affect the possibility to make a line. Players can arrange easy ball patterns to the corners and edges by letting it drop down at early stage. So the possibility to finish board increase at final take mark button.
Skill K: Sufficient balls at final take
Each cell has 8 directions.The more the balls, the higher the possibility to finish board at final take.
