Game Play

The player chooses from between 1 and 15 numbers from the card and places a wager. The term Spot x is often used to described a ticket where a player selects x numbers.

20 numbers are drawn randomly by the house most commonly selecting balls from a container or using a computer Random Number Generator (RNG).

The player collects an amount determined by the number of matches made from their selected numbers with the 20 randomly drawn numbers and the corresponding pay out listed by the house.

Example Game

Below is an example game where the player selects 6 numbers and matches 5 with the numbers drawn by the house. For a $2 bet and using the example pay table below the player will collect $160 which equals a $158 win for this one game.
