Play types are as follows:
Straight: In this play type, you will have to match all the same three digits in the same order they are drawn, therefore, they cannot be jumbled up. For instance, if the digits 123 come up, and your numbers are 132, you will have lost. The prizes are according to how much you would’ve bet on in the first place so if you bet £0.50, you win £250, meanwhile if you bet £1.00, you win £500.
Box: With this play type, you can match the numbers in the draw in any given order and win according to how much you spent on your bet, and whether you win with a 3-way or 6-way. So, for instance, if your numbers are 112 and the numbers drawn are 121, you win!
Straight/Box: In a straight/box play type, you will bet £1.00 and it will be split - £0.50 for straight and £0.50 for box. Therefore, you’ll have placed a bet on the numbers matching either in the exact order or in any given order. You win prizes according to the price of the bet you placed and whether the winning was with a 3-way or 6-way.
Front Pair: In a front pair play type, you will choose a three-digit number, for example, 123 and the winning number is 124. This way you would’ve won because the front 2 digits you chose are the same as the winning numbers. Prizes, of course, are according to the price of the bet you placed. Also, a Front Pair player would need to select numbers from the first two columns only.
Back Pair: In a back pair play type, you will choose a three-digit number, for instance, 234 and the winning number is 134. This way you would’ve won because the back 2 digits you chose are the same as the winning numbers. Once again, rewards are according to the price of the bet you placed. A Back Pair player would need to select numbers from the last two columns only.
Combo: In a combo play type, you can bet between £1.50-£6.00 depending on the bets you place. If you pick out 3 numbers, with 2 of them being the same digit, it will cost you between £1.50 - £3.00. Meanwhile, if you choose 3 numbers, with all the digits being different from each other, it will cost you £3.00 - £6.00. For example, if you pick out ‘123’ as your chosen numbers, you will have the chance to win with different straight combinations, meaning, with the first two straight numbers and with also the last two straight numbers. This will also include winning with a straight 3-digit number.
