Play Style, Play Symbols and determining a Valid Winning Play for Lucky Bug

A Play Number is given to each Play, and this can be found at the top right of the Game Play Window.

At the start of a Play, the Player is presented with a Game Play Window displaying six vertical columns (the 'Columns'). Each Column consists of different coloured octagon shapes containing a white symbol (the 'Blocks'). Each Block consists of either a clover on a green background, a horseshoe on a turquoise background, a rainbow on a grey background, a flower on a pink background, a diamond on a red background and a crystal ball on an orange background.

Each of the six Columns are displayed in varying heights as follow: two Columns with eight Blocks, two Columns with 7 Blocks, one Column with 5 Blocks and one Column with 4 Blocks. At the top of each Column is a Pot of Gold with a monetary amount (the 'Pot of Gold') and underneath the Columns is a white dice with red pips. The dice are numbered consecutively from left to right, from one to six.

To the right of the Game Play Window is the instruction '8 ROLLS LEFT' (the 'Goes Left Indicator') and underneath are two dice, one with a play symbol representing one of the Blocks and one with red pips representing one of the dice underneath the columns (together the 'Dice').

To the top right of Game Play Window is a wooden sign made up of 3 planks of wood, each plank contains either X1, X2 or X3, followed by one silhouetted star ('the Star') and a monetary amount to the right of the star (the 'Prize Table).

To the top left of the Game Play Window is the instruction 'Roll the dice to get co-ordinates & blast the selected blocks. Lower a pot of gold to the ground to win that PRIZE, or collect stars to fill the Prize Table to win. After a period of time this instruction will disappear behind the 'i' motif (the 'Information Button). The Player can display the instruction at any time by clicking on the Information Button and then clicking once again to close it.

To commence a Play, the Player must position the cursor over the Dice and click. On doing so, the Dice will roll and then land to display a dice with a number displayed in red pips and a dice with a symbol (the 'Co-Ordinates'). At the same time the Goes Left Indicator will decrease by one.

The Co-Ordinates displayed on the Dice will correspond to a numbered dice underneath the Columns and to the symbols on the Blocks within that Column. The corresponding Blocks will pulse and the numbered dice under that Column will glow white to show the Player the Column selected.

The Blocks within the Column that correspond to the selected Co-Ordinates will blast away to reduce the Column height to lower the Pot of Gold closer towards ground level. When all of the Blocks in a Column have been blasted away, the Pot of Gold will be lowered to ground level and will turn Gold to indicate that the Player has won the monetary amount shown on that Pot of Gold.

If the Player blasts a Block with an attached Star symbol (the 'Star'), the Star will leave the Block and move to the Prize Table. If the Player collects 2 or more Stars, the corresponding number and monetary amount will highlight in the Prize Table to indicate the Player has won that amount.

A Player's Play ends, when he has rolled all eight Dice. A message will appear in the Game Play Window indicating the amount the Player has won, if any, and instructing him to click 'FINISH' to complete the game.

The Player of a Play will, providing the requirements of the Rules and these Procedures are met, win a prize if having lowered a Pot of Gold to ground level within a Column and/or collected two or three Stars in the 'Prize Table' shall, subject to the Rules, be entitled to a Prize as detailed in the table below:
