The Player clicks the twelve (12) play icons to reveal a number between 1 and 40 inclusive and an associated prize amount. The value of all revealed numbers will be added to the ‘KNOCKOUT NUMBERS’ score counter.
Once all 12 play icons have been revealed and if the target score is achieved or exceeded, any unmatched ‘WINNING NUMBERS’ will be replaced with new numbers to match against.
Once all the numbers have been revealed and the ‘KNOCKOUT NUMBERS’ feature has been revealed, the end game message and ‘FINISH’ button will appear.
