    I don't think the basics is that complicated. For every ramp/orbit you shoot with one of the balls that is not the lit jackpot ramp you add 100 000 points (200 000 if you have Crazy Daves Double score) to the jackpot you will get once you hit the lit ramp. Super Jackpot I thought was double all the jackpots you have scored since last hitting the super jackpot ramp but it seems only to be the sum of the previous jackpots. I think super jackpot possibly also carry over to the next multi-ball, so sometimes it can appear to give you a big score if you haven't hit it for a while.

    Well... I think this is the basics of it, but there might be other stuff happening with the Jack in the box and then also sometimes with some of the other multi-balls (not the mail one) you hear jackpot being called without hitting the jackpot ramp

    Another way to raise the Jackpot - For every Ramp/Orbit you shoot with one of the Balls that is not the lit Jackpot ramp you add 100,000 Points (200,000 Points if you have Crazy Daves – Gatling Pea; explained below) to the Jackpot you will get once you hit the lit Ramp.

    You can also get Crazy Daves; Gatling Pea (Explained earlier in the Guide under ‘Crazy Dave’s Twiddlydinks’ section) which will double the Jackpot awards –

    •Gatling Pea - Double future Score. Permanent Score Multiplier. Doubles the Mission Completion Bonus."

I shot a giant fireball 5 times and every time another fireball came out and I failed the mission. Started up the mission again and every ball that got destroyed the opposite one popped out so I got lucky that go around. Seems to be pretty random what type of ball comes out.
    Huh, I think I've only ever got the same colour when exploding the pinball on the fireball/iceball.

    I've now beaten Wiz. mode! On my first ball, natch, with a 1x multiplier.
