Lightning round not free anymore

I’ve played many lightning rounds on WWF and now it wants 5 coins to play???
Is this new? Why do I have to pay now ?

    @rfs1969 I don't remember hearing this reported so apparently it is new. Not surprising though. Zynga tries to make a buck any way they can to keep their stock holders happy. Sad but true!!

    Maybe after you play a certain amount of rounds of LR? I wanted to check in the player forums to see if others have noticed this as well??
    What a bummer! It’s fun to play but I’m not going to pay to do so.

    As of this week. Not paying to play. Hope they don’t charge when it’s an event goal. We’ll see on 6/24/18

    I'm not even given the option to use coins...it just says unable to join match?

    That’s strange! I got a response from Zynga and they are testing charging for lightning round.
    What a bummer! So, you can even play at all?

    It's Oct 2nd 2018. Lightning round still says unable to join. I thought it was really fun choice when it worked.
    What a long, unusual bug to have.
    Zynga.. you're our only hope on this one. Oooh unless another developer could make an app like lightning round! Now that would be great!

    I had the same "unable to join" issue on my Android phone for a while, but for the last week or so it's been working again. I never had that issue on my iPad, and uninstalling and reinstalling on the phone didn't fix it at the time.

    That "try now" banner certainly has had me worried about what they plan on doing, but it's never charged me to play it yet.
