Pinball wizard shares why the game isn't as random as it looks

In this Vox video, pinball legend Roger Sharpe explains that playing the game isn't random and shares how players can manipulate the balls to their advantage.

Going into the video, I felt a little bit like, "What are things old people already knew, Alec?" but ended up learning some things. Never too old, I guess. Funny enough, I was just playing pinball last weekend (at the soon-to-be-closed Playland-Not-at-the-Beach… sniff) and totally could have used these pointers.
