There is a 1 in 3.5 overall chance of winning a Prize on each Play of the Game. The expected prize payout percentage for this game is 65.00%.

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

You also acknowledge that the CONNECT 4 Instant Win Game is a representation of CONNECT 4 only and is not intended to replicate the original game.

How to play and win

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 if You bought the Play via Your Account, and in the confirmation email sent to You if You bought the Play via Pingit.

At the start of a Play, You're presented with a Game Play Window displaying the words 'Connect 4', a CONNECT 4 frame, one large red counter and one large yellow counter with the word 'or' between them. Below these counters is the instruction: 'CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR'.

To commence a Play, You must position Your cursor over one of the large counters and click. On doing so, You're presented with a Game Play Window displaying a CONNECT 4 frame (the 'Frame') containing 42 empty counter spaces in a 7x6 formation. To the left of each horizontal line, below each vertical line and to the bottom left of the Frame, a cash amount is displayed (the 'Prize').

To the bottom left of the Game Play Window is the instruction: 'Click on each of the columns in the grid to fill it with counters. Connect four counters of your chosen colour in a row, column or diagonal to win PRIZE. Find a yellow counter with a red 4 to win £10'. After a period of time this will retract into an 'i' motif (the 'Information Button'). You can display the instruction at any time by clicking on the Information Button.

If, after a period of time You've not yet clicked anything, the empty counter spaces will animate to indicate that You must click one of these to continue the Game.

If You move the cursor over an empty counter space, the entire column will highlight orange. When You click on one of the empty counter spaces six counters will drop into the Frame from above that column, and the following will happen:

- If You reveal four counters of Your chosen counter colour next to each other in a vertical line, the Prize directly below that column will animate to indicate that You have won that amount. The four counters will animate, highlight green and a green line will outline the four counters. The Prize and counters will remain highlighted for the rest of the Game.

- If four counters of Your chosen counter colour are not connected in a vertical line, the Prize directly below that column will dim down to indicate that this Prize can no longer be won.

- If a yellow counter with a red 4 is revealed the yellow counter with a red 4 will animate to indicate that You have won £10. The yellow counter with a red 4 will remain highlighted for the rest of the Game.

To continue, You must position the cursor over an empty counter space. A further six counters will drop into the Frame from above the column that you have clicked, and one of the actions described above will happen.

As the Frame is filled with counters, one of the following will happen:

- If You reveal four counters of Your chosen counter colour next to each other in a horizontal row the Prize directly to the left of that row will animate to indicate that you have won that amount. The four counters will animate, highlight green and a green line will outline the four counters. The Prize and counters will remain highlighted for the rest of the Game.

- If You reveal four counters of Your chosen counter colour next to each other in a diagonal line the Prize to the bottom left of the Frame, in line with the diagonal, will animate to indicate that You have won that amount. The four counters will animate, highlight green and a green line will outline the four counters. The Prize and counters will remain highlighted for the rest of the Game.

- If four counters of Your chosen counter colour are not connected in a horizontal row or diagonal line, the Prizes for those horizontal rows and diagonal line will dim down to indicate that these Prizes can no longer be won.

To complete the Game, You must click on an empty space in each of the seven columns. The Game ends when the Frame has been completely filled with counters. A message will appear to the middle right of the Game Play Window indicating the amount You have won, if any. The word 'FINISH' will appear underneath this message. You must click 'FINISH' to complete the Game.

If You have bought a Play of this Game and have revealed four of Your chosen colour counters in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line in the Connect 4 Frame, You will, providing the requirements of these Procedures and the Rules are met, be entitled to a Prize as detailed in the table below:

If You have bought a Play of this Game and have revealed yellow counter with a red 4, You will, providing the requirements of these Rules and the Procedures are met, be entitled to £10.
