When playing Bulb Smash on the Big Cash Bulb Smash app, you must first enter a contest and pay the entry fee. You will be assigned a random opponent with whom you will play head to head.
- After the Bulb Smash game download, the game starts with a fidget spinner randomly assigning points to each bulb. The scores will differ for each game, so there is no specific point range for one colour. The bulbs have point scores ranging from 40, 30, 20, and 10 and the colours are red, blue, yellow and purple.
- The bulbs will rotate above the screen; you must smash them using a slingshot. The game has four sets, and players have four chances to break the bulbs. Aim at the bulbs with higher points to win more. When you hit a bulb that is outside the four selected colours, or if you miss a bulb, you lose points.
- After each player finishes their set, the results will be tallied to announce the winner. If you win, you receive a payout in your Bulb Smash pot.
