Game Price: £2.00

There is a 1 in 2.79 overall chance of winning a Prize on each Play of the Game. The expected prize payout percentage for this game is 70.48%.

This Game is a game of chance. The outcome of a Play in the Game is pre-determined by Allwyn's Computer System at the point of purchase. You are not required to exercise any skill or judgement to win a Prize.


Each Play has its own Play Number - this can be found on the Game outcome screen once the Game has been finished, in the “My Games” section of Your Account.

At the start of a Play, You are presented with a splash screen displaying the Game name and a 'PLAY' button. You must select the PLAY button to continue.

On doing so, You will be presented with the Main Game Play Screen, which consists of a box resembling a calendar, displaying the words '£25,000 A MONTH FOR A YEAR' and twelve games each labelled from 1 to 12 (each a “GAME”). Each GAME contains two pound sign post-it motifs (the colours of which will vary) with the word 'PRIZE' underneath (the “Main Game”). Below the Main Game are the instructions: 'In a GAME, match two identical symbols to win PRIZE. If you win and the PRIZE is YEAR motif, win £25,000 a month for a YEAR.'.

To the right of the Main Game is a smaller box labelled as 'BONUS GAME' (the “Bonus Game”). The Bonus Game contains three swag bag motifs (colours of which will vary). Beneath the Bonus Game is the instruction: 'Reveal three crossed fingers to win £10'. You can play the Main Game and the Bonus Game in any order.

To start Your Play of the Main Game, You must select either one of the pound sign post-it motifs or the word PRIZE in a GAME. On doing so, the pound sign post-it motifs in that GAME will animate and change to reveal two of a variety of symbols and the word PRIZE will change to display a monetary amount or the word YEAR. If the two symbols revealed in a GAME are identical, that GAME will animate and highlight yellow to indicate that You have won a Prize. The Prize will be the monetary amount displayed for that GAME, or if the Prize is revealed as YEAR, that GAME will animate and highlight yellow to indicate that You have won £25,000 a month for a YEAR.

To play the Bonus Game, You must select the three swag bag motifs. On doing so, the swag bag motifs will animate and change to display a symbol. If You reveal three crossed fingers motifs behind the swag bag motifs, each crossed fingers motif will pulse and highlight blue to indicate that You have won £10.

Your Play ends when You have selected all of the pound sign post-it motifs or the word PRIZE in each GAME in the Main Game and selected all three of the swag bag motifs in the Bonus Game. A splash screen will then appear displaying the amount You have won (if any). A 'FINISH' button, and a button labelled 'RETURN TO GAME' will then appear which You can select to view Your finished Play. If You do not wish to view Your finished Play, You must select the FINISH button to end Your Play.

If You select the RETURN TO GAME button, You will be taken back to the Main Game Play Screen, and a button labelled 'SHOW END GAME' will then be displayed at the top of the Main Game. You must then select the SHOW END GAME button, followed by the FINISH button to end Your Play.

If You have bought a Play of this Game and have matched two identical symbols in a GAME in the Main Game and/or revealed three crossed fingers motifs in the Bonus Game, You will, providing the requirements of these Procedures and the Rules are met, be entitled to a Prize as detailed in the table below:
