Quickie Version

 Collect all four numbers in all three places, then UTAD.
 Go-To Flipper:  Mild bias Right.

Full Detail

The key is to collect sets of numbers - - one from the top lanes, one from the green standup targets [or disk rollover at the top for #4], and one from the yellow stand-ups [or right side lane for #2]. Getting all three of a number increases the value of any shot for that number from 500 to 5,000. Bumpers are 1000.

The Skill Shot would be for either the 2 or the 3, since scoring either awards both top lanes. This also applies for the green 2 and 3 stand-up targets, i.e. getting either gives you both. It’s therefore easier to “finish” your three 2’s or 3’s first.

Once you have all [or most] of the numbers, just go UTAD and get the ball to fall into any 5000-valued lane. Best choice is the #4 lane, since that one feeds the #2 lane below it and provides a relatively safe return to the flippers.
