Large Bonus


(Russell Zeckner) #1

After a year and 2700 miles on Zwift I am a fan.  However, during that time even though I have often received a “Large” bonus the number of points I have received has alway been10 and not the 250 I expected.  When I receive a “Small” bonus I get the expected 10 points.  Is there something I am missing or has the award program changed for some reason.

Thank you

Why do you expect a +250 bonus?

It is a roulette wheel. It has nothing to do with your achievements. If you play the game and use the spacebar, “aim” for the +10 and you will receive the +250 most often that way.

If you want a lot of bonus points, complete ERG workouts and get the stars for each segment. You can get 1000 points for some of these.

Excuse my ignorance but I was unaware of the skill aspect of the “roulette wheel”  and assumed it functioned just like a conventional roulette wheel, with only luck determining it results.  FYI, My information about the 250 points came from the Zwift Insider page:

I’ve been riding Zwift for several months, and (as far as I’ve observed) I’ve NEVER hit the large bonus!  It must be the equivalent of hitting “00” on the roulette wheel.

i got the big bonus one time, and it’s been +10 ever since. maybe you can only get it once?
