Bonus matches are unlocked as you progress through each Cup and are shown as a branch on the match path through each Cup. Each Bonus Match is a bit different from regular matches in one way or another. The earliest one you will unlock can be found in the Exchange Cup upon beating the first opponent and getting at least two stars (some bonus matches require all 3 stars). In this game, you gain 1 point for each ball you pot, and the first to 30 points/pots wins. You must get the correct ball into the marked pot for the point to count.
