So last week I was surprised to see that I was starting out levels with a 200% xplodium bonus, and after each wave the bonus would increase by 10%, and maxed out at 400%. This differs from the usual 100% start, 5% increase, and 200% max.

Today, I was disappointed to see that I started out at 100% again. I googled it and someone mentioned that it was a St. Patrick's Day easter egg of sorts, but this clearly doesn't apply to what I saw, since it was obviously not St. Patty's Day when I experienced this.

Can anyone explain this? Is there a way to unlock this "feature" again?

It's doing it again!! I'm at the 400% multiplier for some reason. – Dave May 28 '11 at 4:37
It's weird -- it actually goes between 200% and 400% during my game. When I got to Wave 50 for Revolution 10, I basically continuously paused & resumed, or hit the home button and switched back to the game, just so I could end the revolution with a 400% multiplier. – Dave May 29 '11 at 5:47
