Something that rewards more points in VideoGames. Ways of obtaining them may include:
* Collecting and/or using special items
* Cheats
* Initiate an event
* KillStreak or other {{Combos}}.

If a multiplier is said to "stack" with another multiplier, then the two multiply separately - a 2x multiplier stacked with a 5x multiplier stacks into a 10x multiplier.

Multipliers are usually integer values (x2, x3, x5, etc.), but decimals and percentages are also sometimes used (eg. "+25% score"). Sometimes they are a simple temporary bonus;
other {{Combos}}.

times, they may be an intrinsic, permanent mechanic of the game. In this latter case, increasing and maintaining the multiplier at a high value is vital to any player seeking a high score, and such games will often make it a skill challenge to do so.

If a more than one multiplier is said present in a game, it may be possible for them to "stack" with another multiplier, then "stack", giving the two multiply separately - player both at the same time; for example, a 2x multiplier stacked with a 5x multiplier stacks into is effectively a 10x multiplier.

Added DiffLines:

* A few machines made by Creator/{{SEGA}}, most notably ''Pinball/LastActionHero'', have a "Double Your Bonus" system where, rather than adding your end-of-all bonus to itself, it outright [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin doubles it each time]]. This means the bonus increases exponentially, rather than linearly like with most pinball games.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoII'': you often receive a fixed amount of points (which equal money), but it is then multiplied by a number you can increase by completing missions, and picking up some power-ups.

* In ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'', collecting five Score Bubbles, Prize Bubbles, or creature brains in any combination in a short timeframe gives you a 2x Multiplier. You then have about a second to collect five more of the above to increase the multiplier by one. The multiplier goes up to 100, with any bubbles collected after that added to the points that will be multiplied. In the games with the Score Giver, items tagged with it can be set to follow those rules or be worth +1 on the multiplier anyway.
