Meteor owners: What does this mean?
« on: October 28, 2019, 05:28:00 PM »
On the score card for Meteor it says:

WOWs flash on METEOR targets when bonus multiplier is at 6x only.

Never seen this anywhere. What does it mean, and what does it look like when it is working?

I guess what I mean is that I have never seen those white WOW lights near the METEOR targets light up. (Has anyone?)

Yes, I have seen them light and earned the extra ball on several occasions.  Most people do not see this because they focus on the spinner shots rather than repeatedly knocking down the METEOR targets.  To max the spinner, you generally leave one target up.  But, with the bonus multiplier going up to 7X, that strategy can be big points as well.
