The Interactive System must be available for play.
A registered Player may play a “Try for Free” game for notional prizes by selecting the “Try” link in the Game Play Window.
In order to play a National Lottery interactive Game, a Player must first register on-line from a link on www.lottery.ie in accordance with the PLI Terms and Conditions.
The Player must have a valid Player Account.
Players must be 18 years of age or older to Play the Game and Prizes will not be paid to persons under 18 years.
The Player is required to log in to the Interactive System by entering a User ID and Password (created during the Player’s original on-line registration process) to gain access to this Game.
When the Player has logged in to the Interactive System a choice of Games will appear on the instant win game lobby. The Player chooses the “Bank The Cash” Game by clicking on the “Play” link on the Game Play Window.
The Player is then shown a brief “How to Play” synopsis of the Game and is invited to ‘Play Now’ or ‘Try’.
When the Player chooses ‘Play Now’ he is then shown the price of playing that Game and current Wallet balance, at which point the Player is invited to ‘Play Now’.
When the Player opens the Game the Interactive System checks to ensure that the Player has sufficient Unutilised Funds to complete the transaction. The cost of the Play is deducted from the Wallet balance and the amended Wallet balance is displayed.
The Game then connects to the Interactive System which randomly selects a Play which may yield a Prize from one of the Prize Tiers for this Game. The result for a Play is randomly determined by the Interactive System. The Player’s interaction with the Game does not impact on the result.
The opening screen is displayed along with a ‘Settings’ button (cog symbol – bottom left hand side) which will open to display two further buttons: the Sound button and the “i” button which contains the synopsis of how to play the Game.
The Player is presented with a Game Play Window displaying ‘WINNING NUMBERS’ area which contains the four (4) unique ‘WINNING NUMBERS’ generated on game load. A ‘YOUR NUMBERS’ panel which contains twelve (12) ‘Money Bag’ play icons from which a number between 1 and 25 (inclusive) will be revealed with or without a key symbol. A ‘BANK THE CASH’ area which contains three (3) key silhouettes under the instruction ‘REVEAL 3 KEYS TO ACTIVATE BANK THE CASH’.
The aim of the Game is to match two or more of the numbers revealed in ‘YOUR NUMBERS’ to any of the ‘WINNING NUMBERS’ to win the corresponding Prize in the prize table and/or to reveal 3 keys to activate ‘Bank The Cash’.
In a winning game where ‘BANK THE CASH’ has been activated and where 3 or more matches have been achieved, the Player will win the corresponding Prize in the prize table and any prizes beneath this in the prize table.
The Player can click on the ‘Money Bag’ icons in any order to reveal ‘YOUR NUMBERS’. Any matching number(s) will be highlighted in both the designated ‘WINNING NUMBERS’ and the ‘YOUR NUMBERS’ grid.
The Player will win an amount equal to the total of all prizes revealed in the Game.
Once the game ends one of the following messages (depending on the prize value won) indicating the result will appear:
BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME
YOU HAVE WON!
CONGRATULATIONS YOU’VE WON!
The Player is required to acknowledge this message by clicking the FINISH button. The Game then ends and the Player is shown the game confirmation screen.
If You purchase a Play and do not complete the Play, the system will automatically play out the Play within 24 hours. If a Low Tier Prize is won then that Prize will be paid directly into the Players Wallet. If a Mid-Tier (Level 1) Prize is won then that Prize will be paid by cheque and posted to the address specified in Your Player Account.
