Sometimes when I'm playing Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook, I notice this deer/elk thing show up on the left side of the screen:

Bejeweled Blitz screen

It's not there when the game starts (at least I've never noticed it), and I can't figure out if it has any effect on gameplay or what triggers it showing up. Maybe it's random and has no meaning! Does anyone know?

According to someone at PopCap:

The "stag" in the background that appears has no other significance other than one of our artists created a rather cool Autumnal scene to use for the game that has a sort of mystical quality to it. Everytime you hit a multipier, a new part of the scene is added. Kind of cool, huh?

So no, it has no meaning.

Horacio the Stag. Nice. – NReilingh Oct 7 '12 at 6:56

It seems to only appear when you reach 4 times multiplier, as you increase in multipliers it disappears and the scenery changes, I have noticed it change to a purplish color
