  Bonus Bowling:

Though Bonus Bowling is often referred to as an arcade game, many casinos, especially online ones, offer it. In some cases, you actually have to download software into your computer in order to play. Therefore, try to make sure that the online establishment you have chosen is honest and legitimate, and that your computer’s antivirus software is sufficiently up-to-date to protect you from viruses that might accompany the program on its way to your hard drive.

In essence, Bonus Bowling is about you wagering money on bowling outcomes. You start by specifying the amount of money you wish to bet. If you like, you can place multiple bets in the hope that one of them will win. You can bet on the appearance of a strike (all pins being knocked down by one ball) or a spare (needing two balls to knock down all the pins). There are other options involving particular numbers of pins being knocked down. Once you have placed your bet or set of bets, you click the Throw button on your screen and hope for a favorable outcome. The computer simulates the throwing of a virtual bowling ball on virtual pins and shows you the result. Then you get a payout (or not) accordingly. You can keep your bets in place for the next throw, so as to avoid having to choose and enter a whole new set of bets. However, if you like to experiment with your wagers, you may simply click the Clear button, which will erase all your entries in the wager fields, freeing them up for new bets.

As you have seen from the mechanisms described above, most of the decisions you will be making have to do with betting. In this manner, Bonus Bowling is much like roulette. You place bets, watch balls being thrown, and wait. Once you set your bets, you have very little control over the outcome. In addition, any bowling skills you might have will not be of much use to you in this game. You will not be using a joystick or any other controls in order to manipulate a ball.

Bonus Bowling


Given this situation, we cannot say that bowling fans will necessarily find Bonus Bowling a fun game. In fact, some of them may develop a particular dislike for an arcade game that purports to be based on bowling, but proves to have very few similarities to it. Perhaps game developers might come up with a game in which more skill is involved, perhaps through the manipulation of a ball. If they can come up with a special type of controlling mechanism that handles like the throwing of an actual bowling ball, they will have come up with something very fun and innovative. Such a development would constitute a radical improvement for Bonus Bowling, or might even constitute the birth of a new game altogether.

We may also gain a better, more optimistic view of Bonus Bowling when we compare it to another arcade/gambling game, namely, slots. Bonus Bowling is another game of chance in which your decisions mainly have to do with betting, and how long you wish to keep playing. Once the money has been entered and the lever pulled (or button clicked), all you can do is wait. However, the Bonus Bowling graphics are much more interesting and less repetitive than those of slots. The sound effects are also much more amusing. Therefore, we can say that Bonus Bowling is most likely to appeal to slot machine enthusiasts for whom their favorite game is starting to pall a little.

Any advice on Bonus Bowling strategy must, of necessity, focus on betting. If you are planning to place a whole set of bets, you might try keeping the same set in place every time, so that you may end up being right eventually. This might seem monotonous, but it makes a great deal of practical sense. It is much like guessing your way through a long series of multiple-choice test questions. You are likely to get more questions right if you choose the same letter for all the questions (i.e. all B’s or all C’s). In addition, you might try to bet on a wide variety of outcomes for every set: a fairly high number of pins knocked down, and a fairly low number also. If you believe that your budget will not sustain this type of betting for a large number of throws, you might try betting on a small number of outcomes, but still keeping your bets the same from throw to throw.

Bonus Bowling Arcade Game


It is possible that Bonus Bowling will become more widely available on more gambling websites, or even that Bonus Bowling machines may someday become a mainstay at brick-and-mortar casinos. Also, given the directions in which consumer electronics are headed, a non-gambling version of this game might have a future as an application on personal devices. However, these are all simply conjectures. For now, most fans of Bonus Bowling will have to content themselves playing online.

In sum, Bonus Bowling is the type of game that will have a strong appeal for fans of games of chance, and complicated machinery or betting systems. However, it may be less attractive to people who like their games to be mentally demanding or heavily skill-based. In addition, people who like a lot of physical action in their games are much better off with real, live bowling than this arcade version. This is why it is difficult to make clear-cut statements about whether or not Bonus Bowling is a good game or a bad one. It is not a simple black-and-white issue. Rather, it is an issue of knowing the nature of the game, understanding what you yourself look for in a game, and seeing if how much (or little) the two match. Bonus Bowling is a potentially divisive game that can please some and greatly frustrate others. However, there are sure to be some people who occupy the middle ground. Bonus Bowling is probably not going to be their favorite game, but it is likely to be something they occasionally play in order to vary their routine.
