Game Name: Instant Lotto
Game Price: £1.00
There is a 1 in 2.70 overall chance of winning a Prize on each Play of the Game. The expected prize payout percentage for this game is 70.00%.
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.
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 a 'PLAY' button and the message 'PACKED WITH PRIZES UP TO £10,000.' You must select the Play Button to continue.
On selecting PLAY, You will be presented with the Number Pick Screen. On the left of the Number Pick Screen is the prize table (the 'Prize Table'). The Prize Table has six rows; each row details the win criteria on the left and the associated monetary amount (the 'Prize') on the right.
On the right of the Number Pick Screen are two boxes, one labelled 'CHOOSE YOUR NUMBERS' (the 'Choose Your Numbers Button') and one labelled 'OR SELECT LUCKY DIP' (the 'Lucky Dip Button').
How to play the game
There are two ways to select the six numbers to play the Game with:
1. Choose Your numbers manually in the Game by selecting six balls from the 59 available by selecting the Choose Your Numbers Button
2. Select 'Lucky Dip' in the Game by selecting the Lucky Dip Button.
Please note that once You have selected the Choose Your Numbers Button You cannot select the Lucky Dip Button, and once You have selected the Lucky Dip Button, You will not be able to individually select Your numbers.
Once you have chosen one of the two options set out above, a panel containing eight chutes (each a 'Chute') will then be displayed. Each Chute contains seven or eight coloured balls (each a 'Ball'), with each Ball displaying a number ranging from 01 to 59:
a) If You selected the Choose Your Numbers Button, You must select six Balls from the Chutes. On selecting a Ball, the number displayed on that Ball will be shown below the Prize Table in a box labelled 'YOUR NUMBERS' (the 'Your Numbers Area') and the colour of the Ball in the Chute will dim to indicate that You have selected that number. On selecting the first Ball the instructions below the Chutes will change to: 'CHOOSE 5 NUMBERS' and will continue to decrease each time a Ball is selected (the 'Chooses Left Indicator'). You can deselect a number, by selecting the corresponding Ball in the Chute. On doing so, the colour of the Ball will change to its original colour, the number will disappear from the Your Numbers Area, and the Chooses Left Indicator will increase by one. To continue a Play, You must select another Ball. Once You have selected six numbers, the Chooses Left Indicator will then display the instruction: 'LET'S GO TO THE DRAW' (the 'Draw Button'). You must select the Draw Button to continue.
b) On selecting the Lucky Dip Button, six numbers will automatically be chosen for You. As each number is automatically selected that Ball will dim down in the Chute and the number displayed on that Ball will be shown in the Your Numbers Area. Once six numbers are shown in the Your Numbers Area, the Draw Button will be displayed above the Your Numbers Area. You must select the Draw Button to continue. You cannot change any of the numbers displayed in the Your Numbers Area once you have selected the Lucky Dip Button.
On selecting the the Draw Button through the Choose Your Numbers option or the Lucky Dip option, You will be presented with a draw machine on the right of the screen (the 'Draw Machine') with the instruction 'START THE DRAW' (the 'Start the Draw button') in the centre of the Draw Machine. To the left of the Draw Machine is the Prize Table. Below the Prize Table is the Your Numbers Area. At the bottom of the Game Play Window a row with 7 empty circles shown (the "Winning Numbers Area").
Starting the Draw
On selecting the Start the Draw Button, fifty-nine balls numbered from 01 to 59 will drop down from the Chutes into the Draw Machine. The Draw Machine will animate and one ball displaying a number ranging from 01 to 59 will be drawn from the Draw Machine, stop at the base of the Draw Machine, and then populate the last available space in the Winning Numbers Area. As the balls are being drawn from the Draw Machine, the numbers in the Your Numbers Area that match the numbers in the Winning Numbers Area will highlight to show that they have been matched. Once six balls have been drawn and populated the first six spaces in the Winning Numbers Area, another ball will be drawn and populate the last space in the Winning Numbers area (the 'Bonus Ball'). If You have satisfied any of the win criteria of a row in the Prize Table, that row will turn red to indicate that You have won the Prize for that row.
If you have matched zero balls or one ball You will be presented with the following message: "UNLUCKY, YOU HAVEN'T WON IN THE LOTTO DRAW BUT YOUR GAME ISN'T OVER! YOU HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE TO WIN IN OUR HI-LO GAME!" You will need to select the 'PLAY' button below the message to play the Hi-Lo Game.
If You have matched two or more balls and therefore have not qualified to play the Hi-Lo Game, Your Play ends when six balls and the bonus ball have been drawn from the Draw Machine and the matching winning numbers, if any, have highlighted in the Your Numbers Area. Once all six balls and the bonus ball have been drawn from the Draw Machine, a panel will appear below the Draw Machine, containing six balls in the Your Numbers Area on the left, with matched numbers highlighted, if any. The panel will also contain six balls in the Winning Numbers Area, and one ball labelled "BONUS BALL" (The "Bonus Ball). The balls in the Winning Numbers Area and the Bonus Ball represent the seven balls drawn from the Draw Machine. A message will appear in the centre of draw machine indicating the amount You have won, if any (the 'Final Message'). The word 'FINISH' will appear below the Final Message. You must select 'FINISH' to complete the Game.
You will then be presented with a Game Play Window displaying 3 panels labelled 'GAME 1', 'GAME 2' and 'GAME 3' (the 'Game Panels'). Each Game Panel contains a red circle outline and a blue circle outline, each outline displaying a '?' motif. Below each Game Panel is a smaller box displaying a '?' motif. Above the Game Panels is the message 'CORRECTLY PREDICT HIGHER OR LOWER IN EACH GAME TO WIN PRIZES'. To the left of the message is the Hi-Lo Game Prize Table which has 3 rows; each row details the win criteria on the left and the associated monetary amount (the 'Prize') on the right. Below the Hi-Lo Game Prize Table is a panel displaying two arrows, labelled HI and LO (the 'Hi-Lo Panel'). To continue You must select any of the Game Panels. On doing so, a ball displaying a number will appear in the red circle outline in that Game Panel, and the Hi-Lo Panel will animate to indicate that You must select either the HI arrow or the LO arrow.
You must decide whether You think the ball that will appear in the blue circle outline below the ball in the red circle outline in the currently active Game Panel will display a number that is higher or lower than the number displayed on the ball in the red circle outline, and select either HI or LO to continue. If You select HI and the number that appears on that ball in the blue circle outline is higher in value than the number displayed on ball in the red circle outline, or if You select LO and the number that appears on that ball in the blue circle outline is lower in value than the number displayed on ball in the red circle outline, then the two balls in that Game Panel will highlight to indicate that You have made a correct selection, and the word 'CORRECT' will appear in the smaller box directly below that Game Panel. On making a correct selection, a row in the prize table will highlight red to indicate that You have satisfied that row's win criteria and won the prize for that row.
If You select HI and the number that appears on the ball in the blue circle outline is lower in value than the ball in the red circle outline, or if You select LO and the number that appears on the ball in the blue circle outline is higher in value than the ball in the red circle outline, that Game Panel will fade down to indicate that You have made an incorrect selection, and the word 'INCORRECT' will appear in the smaller box directly below that Game Panel.
You must complete all three Game Panels. A message will then appear on the left of the Game Play Window indicating the amount You have won, if any. A FINISH button will be displayed below this message, which You must select to complete Your Play.
