As mentioned above, Oktoberfest has FOUR magnets, two of which are player-controlled.  ‘MagNab’ are the two player-controlled magnets, which are activated via the second ‘flipper’ button on the right side of the cabinet. Players can earn MagNabs in game play, and then choose when to use them.
MagNabs can be used to set up shots for the upper right flipper as there is a magnet located just above the flipper.
Note the magnet above the upper flipper
