  7. 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 “PRIZE DUCKS” Game by clicking on the “Play” link on the Game Play Window.

  8. The Player is then shown a brief “How to Play” synopsis of the game and is invited to ‘Play Now’ or ‘Try’.

  9. When the Player chooses ‘Play Now’ they are then shown the price of playing a Game and current Wallet balance, at which point the Player is invited to ‘Play Now’.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
