- — Mouseover description from Bejeweled Blitz
A Multiplier, also known as a Multiplier Gem, is a type of gem that appears exclusively in Bejeweled Blitz. The multipliers run from x2 to x8. It is characterized by a basic gem with a perimeter of sparkly lines in the PC version or as a basic colored circle in the Facebook version. This increases the Score Multiplier when matched.
Multipliers are worth their value multiplied by 1000, eg: 2,000 for a x2, 3,000 for a x3 and so on up to 8,000 for x8, and the base value of a match under that multiplier. A x2 multiplier would earn the player at least 2,500 points, while a x3 multiplier would net the player a minimum of 3,750 points.
The base values do not take into consideration special gems; multiply Flame Gem creations x2, Star Gem creations x3 and Hypercube creations x10. Add on an extra 2000 - 8000 for the multiplier's "bonus".
At the end of the game each Multiplier earned adds 100 coins to the player's coin balance.
The first multiplier appears after 12 or more gems are destroyed in one move. Additional multipliers are created after destroying 16 or more gems in a single move. The chance of a multiplier appearing after a big move gradually decreases as the multiplier increases.
- According to evidence found inside the game files of Bejeweled Blitz, it seems that there was once a ×9 Multiplier.
