The Player chooses ‘KICK OFF’ to continue. The Player is then presented with a Game Play Window displaying two tabs designated ‘GAMES 1 & 2’ and ‘GAME 3’.

The Player can win up to ten times on ‘GAME 3’. The total prize won for ‘GAME 3’ will be displayed on the ‘GAME 3’ tab panel on the left hand side of the screen. If no prize has been won the word ‘COMPLETED’ will appear on the ‘GAME 3’ tab panel.
