How can I score over 1 million in Lumeno?

 

I love playing Lumeno, but I can’t seem to break 1 million as I see a lot of players doing. Can anyone tell me how I can push my score higher? I’d really love to get past that 1 million mark!

StephenL855985  is a Lumeno player who regularly scores between 2-3 million and suggests these strategies for boosting your score: 

 

  • Play to leave as many boosts and arrows on the board as possible after each move regardless if it produces the highest score reduction. You must maintain the ability to have good moves for the next turn so don't wipe out the board even if you can. 
  • Continue to choose long ball chains over point reduction moves because it will produce more boosts and flowers for future moves. 
  • Look at the board carefully when eliminating balls to make sure your next move is set up for a good play. 
  • Always try to choose at least four ball chains at a minimum because this guarantees at least one additional flower or boost next move. 
  • You can keep your finger on the mouse to see the point reduction before releasing the play and then back up and try another combination, so that way you can try multiple moves before deciding which one will produce the most advantageous score. 
  • After a chain of seven balls you get two additional boosts or arrows and after a chain of 17 you get an additional 4 or 5 per move.

Hi AARP Lynne  ~  good to know . . . . . . I didn't realize after a chain of 17 you get an additional 4 or 5 per move.

What does the white flower mean?  What do the numbers in the middle of the flower mean?  How can I get more moves?

When you finally get that number down to zero by incorporating the number flowers into the row you are eliminating, etc, you get 5 more moves. See what different play choices will do to the number by not lifting your finger until you have the play that will lower the number the most.

Reducing the number inside the flower to zero so that you get 5 more moves.
