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 (the 'Play Button') and the instructions 'Match YOUR NUMBERS to the WINNING NUMBERS to win corresponding PRIZE in PRIZE TABLE. Match TWO NUMBERS to play the BONUS GAME.' You must select the Play Button to continue.
On the left of the Game Play Window is the PRIZE TABLE (the 'Prize Table'). The Prize Table has ten rows; each row details the win criteria on the left and the associated monetary amount (the 'Prize') on the right as shown below.

On the right of the Game Play Window are displayed two boxes one labelled 'CHOOSE YOUR NUMBERS' (the 'Choose Your Numbers Button') and one labelled 'OR SELECT LUCKY DIP' (the 'Lucky Dip Button').
Choosing Your Numbers
You must choose six numbers to play the Game. There are three ways to select the six numbers to play the Game with:
1. Choose the numbers You want to play with before buying a Play of the Instant Lotto Game
2. Choose Your numbers manually in the Game
3. Select 'Lucky Dip' in the Game
If You have chosen the numbers You wish to play with before buying a Play of the Game, these numbers will automatically display in the Your Numbers Area when You start a Play.
Otherwise, select either the: Choose Your Numbers Button or select the Lucky Dip Button in order to start a Play. 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. If after a period of time You have not selected on either the Choose Your Numbers Button or the Lucky Dip Button, both buttons will animate to indicate that You must select on one of these to start or continue a Play, after which one of the following will happen (depending on which is selected):
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 continue to select six Balls from the Chutes. On selecting a Ball, the number displayed on that Ball will be shown below the eight Chutes in a pink rectangle box labelled 'YOUR NUMBERS' (the 'Your Numbers Area') and the Ball will be greyed out to show that You have selected that number. At the same time the instruction will change to: 'Choose FIVE NUMBERS' and will continue to decrease each time a Ball is selected (the 'Goes Left Indicator'). To deselect a number, You must select the relevant Ball in the Chute. On doing so, the colour of the Ball will change from grey back to its original colour, the number will disappear from the Your Numbers Area, and the Goes Left Indicator will increase by one. To continue a Play, You must select on another Ball. Once You have selected six numbers, the Goes Left Indicator will then display the instruction: 'LET'S GO TO THE DRAW' (the 'Let's Go to the Draw Button') above the Your Numbers Area. You must select the Let's Go to 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 grey out 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 'Let's Go to the Draw Button' will be displayed above the Your Numbers Area. You must select the Let's Go to the Draw Button to continue.
On selecting the Let's Go to the Draw Button You will be presented with a draw machine (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 Draw Machine is a white rectangle box labelled 'WINNING NUMBERS' (the 'Winning Numbers Area') and the Your Numbers Area will move to the left of the Winning Numbers Area. The Winning Numbers Area has seven white balls each of which has a question mark motif, and the ball on the far right hand side has the label 'BONUS BALL' (the 'Bonus Ball') above it.
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 first available space in the Winning Numbers Area. Once seven balls have been drawn from the Draw Machine, the numbers in the Your Numbers Area that match the numbers in the Winning Numbers Area will turn red to show that they have been matched. If a number in the Your Numbers Area matches the number displayed on the Bonus Ball in the Winning Numbers Area, the word 'BONUS' will be displayed below that number in the Your Numbers Area to indicate that it has been matched. If You complete a row in the Prize Table that row will animate for a period of time and turn red to indicate that You have won the Prize for that row.
If you have matched two balls excluding the Bonus Ball you will be presented with the instruction: 'BALLS MATCHED! PLAY BONUS GAME' (the 'Play Bonus Game Button') displayed in the centre of the draw machine. You will need to select the Play Bonus Game Button to play the Bonus Game. You'll then be presented with a box containing nine red balls each containing a white pound sign. Displayed within the Bonus Game box is the instruction: 'Pick 6 balls. MATCH 3 TO WIN.' On selecting a red ball, the ball will change colour and reveal a monetary prize amount. After selecting six out of nine red balls a message will appear in the Bonus Game box indicating the amount You have won, if any, and a 'FINISH' button will appear at the bottom of the Bonus Game box. You must select 'FINISH' to complete the Game.
Alternatively, if you have not played the Bonus Game, Your Play ends when seven balls have been drawn from the Draw Machine and the matching winning numbers if any, have turned red in the Your Numbers Area. A message will appear in the centre of draw machine indicating the amount You have won, if any. The word 'FINISH' will appear in the bottom centre of the draw machine. You must select 'FINISH' to complete the Game.
