Mr. Pinball Tip:

Setting playfield angle:

Manufacturers for games up through the mid to late 70s recommended 3-1/2 degrees of playfield angle. Since then they have gone to a steeper recommendation of 7 degrees. On a flat surface, with leg levelers all even, all machines should be fairly close to the recommended angle.

Now, the real scoop on playfield angle. If your game seems too slow or too easy, increase the pitch. If it's too fast and too hard, decrease the pitch. That's all there is to it. I've found some games play better very steep, and others are more fun with a very gentle slope.
