Premium Bowling (tips and tricks)

Premium Bowling focuses on realistic bowling simulation, many real-world bowling techniques translate well into the VR space.

Some tips and tricks to improve your scores:

Mastering your VR swing:

  • Develop a consistent approach and release: Just like real bowling, having a repeatable approach and release motion will lead to more consistent throws. Practice finding a comfortable rhythm and release point in VR.
  • Lock your wrist for a hook: If you want to throw hooks, focus on keeping your wrist firm during the release. This will create the spin needed for the ball to curve.
  • Aim at the lane markers, not the pins: While tempting, avoid focusing directly on the pins. Instead, aim your release point at the lane markers corresponding to your desired pocket (e.g., the arrows for a straight shot).

Finding your optimal strategy:

  • Experiment with different ball types: The game offers various balls with different weights and hook potentials. Try different combinations to see what works best for your style and the lane conditions.
  • Understand lane oil patterns: Just like real lanes, Premium Bowling features oil patterns that affect ball movement. Learn how to read the patterns and adjust your throws accordingly.
  • Make minor adjustments: Don’t overhaul your entire throw after a bad shot. Instead, make small adjustments to your aim or release point based on the feedback you receive.

Additional tips:

  • Practice regularly: As with any skill, consistent practice is key to improvement. Don’t get discouraged by initial setbacks, and keep refining your technique.
  • Take breaks: Bowling can be physically demanding, even in VR. Take breaks to avoid fatigue and maintain focus.
