Very fun app
Been playing this app continually since 2014. I play every day every time on iPad since I have all the power bowling balls so running out of energy never a problem. When I first started playing game was a little annoying having to wait to recharge but over time saved up to get energy charging balls which eliminated waiting. When enough adds watched to save up to ultimate ball and after then never had to wait again . Never bought gold pins would just watch ads and win to earn, Love the added venues when they appear. Love the special balls, daily spins, weekend events, and other challenges. Only problems are Sometimes locks up after a game and have to restart. This occurs during certain times of year while other times never locks up and works flawlessly for weeks. Sometimes the sound goes away and have to reboot to get back. Sometimes to get spins the videos don’t play and get playback errors. All seem minor compared to the overall experience of the game. Tech support was fine when needed One time at beginning of 2018 the game lost all my settings (special balls, points, gold pins etc....) and I had a LOT of points gold pins and special balls that were all lost, and I was really bummed out. sent email to support which sent me special file to restore my stats and recovered all successfully. Thank god otherwise I would have probably stopped playing game altogether. Hope this game last for many more years as endless entertainment

very good app
Still a good app but VERY frustrating when ads tie up the game and you have to shutdown your iPad and reboot in order to continue playing. Such a waste of the player’s time. The app still has the problem with some of the daily spins. Emails have not been answered. It is a shame because it is a very good game which they obviously put a lot of work into. Since the app is a couple of years old now, they probably want to put minimal resources into it now.
This is a very good and realistic app. Not perfect, but very good as long as you don’t mind investing some dollars into better bowling balls and energy. I think you will get frustrated waiting for the natural course of events to take place. The costs are reasonable but I think you should be prepared to spend some money. One thing that sticks in my craw is the number of times pins just spin around as well as spin around and never go any place. The natural odds are just not possible to calculate. Pins move, even if they do not help you. They travel, sometimes they hit other pins, sometimes they don’t. But overall it is a very good app that gives much enjoyment and brings back memories for many of us.

Some days I like it other days I don’t
So the game is pretty fun, but the glitches and never failing pins get really freakin annoying when you are in the later tournaments that are excessively long and require a ridiculous amount of energy to play. I get that they are selling stuff, but when you are in a tournament that last 5+ rounds and you can only get a couple spares before you get ranked ridiculously low and can not recover, but you have to wait 2+ hours to play the next round. And pins pass through others without hitting them or inexplicably rock to the point they couldn’t possibly stay up, but do anyway ruining your whole tournament, really upset me when I have to spend so much time to play each round (because I ain’t spending that kind of money to play an app). Sometimes my 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place finish would wipeout and force me to play it over.
I hate the qualifiers with a passion... especially on the badger lane, where all opponents are insanely better then any other tournament (why?).
