(f) “Wheel of Fortune” is a ticket with two different games, each game played separately. In GAME 1, the player will scratch the play area to reveal four “WINNING NUMBERS” and 12 “YOUR NUMBERS” with a prize amount shown below each “YOUR NUMBER.” If the player matches any of the “YOUR NUMBERS” to any of the “WINNING NUMBERS,” the player wins the amount shown below the matching “YOUR NUMBER.” If the player reveals a symbol of a wheel, the player wins double the amount shown below the symbol.
In GAME 2, the player will scratch the play area to reveal 12 “YOUR LETTERS.” Each of the “YOUR LETTERS” may be used in all three puzzle grids. A player matches the corresponding letters in all three puzzle grids by removing the translucent scratch-off material covering the matching letter. If a player scratches a complete word in any of the three puzzle grids, the player wins the corresponding prize for that grid. The entire word must be uncovered to win the corresponding prize.
(g) Each ticket in this game may win up to 15 times.
