Step 1: Getting Started

When you first enter the game, you will see a choice of bet types (consisting of Jackpot, Picks, Reverse Picks, Odd/Even, All Odds/Evens, Ranges, Colours, High/Low and Last Ball Roulette), and below that, a ‘Your Bets’ window is displayed – this is where your bets will be displayed once you have chosen them.
In addition to the ‘Your Bets’ window, you can also choose to display Your Wins, a Draw History for your current session, and your Favourites – switch from one to the other by clicking on the appropriate coloured tabs.
These windows will be empty if you have no bets placed / no wins on the last draw / no draw history saved / no favourites selected.
To start choosing your bets, select one of the bet types at the top of the screen to access the bet screen for that bet type. Each of the bet types are described below.
In the ‘Your Bets’ window (shown below), you can delete bets, add them to your Favourites, increase or decrease the stake, and increase or decrease the number of repeat draws for that selection.
You can place a maximum of 100 bets in each draw.

Placing Bets – Jackpot

The current Jackpot amount is shown in the top left corner of the game.
Press ‘Jackpot’ to open the Jackpot bet screen.
You have a choice as to how many balls to pick. You may choose between 5 and 10 balls. In total, 6 balls will be drawn, so if you pick 10 balls, you will have a greater chance of picking the 6 correct balls and because of this, the stakes are higher if you pick 7/8/9/10 balls than if you pick 5 or 6.
Regardless of how many picks you choose, if you correctly predict either 5 or all 6 of the balls that are drawn, you will win the full jackpot. The fixed-odds payouts for picking 1-4 correct balls are detailed on the Jackpot bets screen.
To place your Jackpot bet, first select how many balls you wish to pick by clicking on, for example ‘Pick 6’.
A Jackpot picks screen will then be displayed, where you can choose your balls. Each ball you pick will be highlighted and will also appear in the picked balls area on the right of the screen. When you have picked the specified number of balls, click ‘Next’ to continue.
You will be given the option to select up to 25 repeat draws for the selections you have made. Use the Up/Down arrows to change the number of times you want to repeat this selection. (1 indicates your selection will only be played once – no repeats).
Press ‘Confirm Bets’ to continue. This will place your selections in the ‘Your Bets’ list and the number of repeats can be edited there if you wish.

Placing Bets – Picks / Reverse Picks

Press ‘Picks’ (or ‘Reverse Picks’) to open the bet screen.
You have a choice as to how many balls to pick. You may choose between 1 and 4 balls – in the case of a ‘Picks’ bet, you are selecting the balls you think will be drawn. For ‘Reverse Picks’, you are betting that the selected balls will NOT be drawn.
To place your Picks or Reverse Picks bet, first select how many balls you wish to pick by clicking on, for example ‘Pick 2’.
A picks screen will then be displayed, where you can choose your balls. Each ball you pick will be highlighted and will also appear in the picked balls area on the right of the screen. When you have picked the specified number of balls, the game will automatically return to the Picks main bet screen.
You can place multiple Picks bets, but only one of each kind (eg. ‘Pick 2’). If you want to place 2 or more Picks bets for the same number of balls (eg. ‘Pick 2’) but with different selections, complete the current Pick 2 bet and then repeat this process.
To complete your bet, you need to place chips on the bet area. Select a chip value from the chip tray at the bottom of the screen, and then click on the appropriate bet area to place the chip. You can add multiple chips of different values.
Click ‘Next’ to continue. You will be given the option to select up to 25 repeat draws for the selections you have made. Use the Up/Down arrows to change the number of times you want to repeat this selection. (1 indicates your selection will only be played once – no repeats).
Press ‘Confirm Bets’ to continue. This will place your selection(s) in the ‘Your Bets’ list and the stakes/repeats can be edited there if you wish.

Placing Bets – Odd/Even and All Odds/Evens

Press ‘Odd/Even’ (or ‘All Odds/Evens’) to open the bet screen.
For an Odd/Even bet, you should select whether you think the total of all the numbers on the balls added together will be an odd or even number. Or you could bet on both options if you wish. For an All Odds/Evens bet, you can bet on whether you think all 6 of the balls drawn will be odd or even numbers.
To place your Odd/Even bets, place chips on the bet appropriate area. Select a chip value from the chip tray at the bottom of the screen, and then click on the appropriate bet area to place the chip. You can add multiple chips of different values.
Click ‘Next’ to continue. You will be given the option to select up to 25 repeat draws for the selections you have made. Use the Up/Down arrows to change the number of times you want to repeat this selection. (1 indicates your selection will only be played once – no repeats).
Press ‘Confirm Bets’ to continue. This will place your selection(s) in the ‘Your Bets’ list and the stakes/repeats can be edited there if you wish.

Placing Bets – Ranges

Press ‘Ranges’ to open the bet screen.
For a Ranges bet, you should choose which range the total number of all the 6 balls added together will fall into. For example, if you think the total will be 148, then you would select the 101-150 range.
To place your bet(s), you need to place chips on the bet area for the Range you wish to bet on. Select a chip value from the chip tray at the bottom of the screen, and then click on the appropriate bet area to place the chip. You can add multiple chips of different values on each bet area, and you may bet on multiple ranges.
Click ‘Next’ to continue. You will be given the option to select up to 25 repeat draws for the selections you have made. Use the Up/Down arrows to change the number of times you want to repeat this selection. (1 indicates your selection will only be played once – no repeats).
Press ‘Confirm Bets’ to continue. This will place your selection(s) in the ‘Your Bets’ list and the stakes/repeats can be edited there if you wish.

Placing Bets – High/Low

Press ‘High/Low’ to open the High/Low bet screen.
For a High/Low bet, you should choose which of the balls drawn will be the highest/lowest number. For example, if you think the first ball to be drawn will be the highest number, place your chips on the ‘1st / Highest’ bet area.
To place your bet(s), you need to place chips on the bet area. Select a chip value from the chip tray at the bottom of the screen, and then click on the appropriate bet area to place the chip. You can add multiple chips of different values and you may bet on multiple outcomes.
Click ‘Next’ to continue. You will be given the option to select up to 25 repeat draws for the selections you have made. Use the Up/Down arrows to change the number of times you want to repeat this selection. (1 indicates your selection will only be played once – no repeats).
Press ‘Confirm Bets’ to continue. This will place your selection(s) in the ‘Your Bets’ list and the stakes/repeats can be edited there if you wish.

Placing Bets – Colours

Press ‘Colours’ to open the Colours bet screen.
For a Colours bet, you should choose how many balls of each colour will be drawn. For example, if you think 3 of the balls will be red, you would select 3 next to the red ball on the bet screen.
To select the number of balls of each colour, use the Up/Down arrows next to the coloured balls. You can bet on just one colour or all three.
The three different Colours bets are independent of each other, so the total of the balls you bet on does not have to add up to 6 – if you wanted to, you could even select 6 balls each for yellow, red and blue.
To place your bet(s), you need to place chips on the bet area. Select a chip value from the chip tray at the bottom of the screen, and then click on the appropriate bet area to place the chip. You can add multiple chips of different values and you may bet on multiple outcomes.
Click ‘Next’ to continue. You will be given the option to select up to 25 repeat draws for the selections you have made. Use the Up/Down arrows to change the number of times you want to repeat this selection. (1 indicates your selection will only be played once – no repeats).
Press ‘Confirm Bets’ to continue. This will place your selection(s) in the ‘Your Bets’ list and the stakes/repeats can be edited there if you wish.

Placing Bets – Last Ball Roulette

Press ‘Last Ball Roulette’ to open the bet screen.
Last Ball Roulette bets are bets on what the last ball to be drawn will be. You can bet on the colour, odd/even, a specific number, or the range within which the number will fall – or any combination of the above, provided the maximum payout is not exceeded.
To place your bet(s), you need to place chips on the bet area. Select a chip value from the chip tray at the bottom of the screen, and then click on the appropriate bet area to place the chip. To bet on a particular ball, place the chip on the ball itself. You can add multiple chips of different values and you may bet on multiple outcomes.
Click ‘Next’ to continue. You will be given the option to select up to 25 repeat draws for the selections you have made. Use the Up/Down arrows to change the number of times you want to repeat this selection. (1 indicates your selection will only be played once – no repeats).
Press ‘Confirm Bets’ to continue. This will place your selection(s) in the ‘Your Bets’ list and the stakes/repeats can be edited there if you wish.

The Draw and Auto Draw

When you have placed all your bets and you are happy with your stakes and the number of repeat bets, press ‘Draw’ to start the game.
Six balls will be drawn randomly from the 48 available balls, and these will be displayed on screen as they are drawn.
Before each ball is drawn, there are a few seconds of suspense, when the high/low indicator flashes up and down as the ball is being chosen. If you would like to skip this and draw the balls immediately, switch on Turbo bet.
When you place each bet, you have the option to set up to 25 repeats for the selections you have made. You can switch on ‘Auto Draw’ mode to play through all of your repeat selections automatically one after another.
The game will pause for a few seconds between draws to display any winnings. Click anywhere on the screen during this pause to switch off Auto Draw.
Auto Draw will continue until all repeat selections have been played. For example, if you selected 5 repeats for you Picks bet and 15 repeats for your Jackpot bet, there will be a total of 15 draws.
After the draw, any winning bets will be listed on the ‘Your Wins’ window (this list is refreshed after each draw) and your winnings will be credited to your account balance.
