Navy Bomb is laid out in a 6x6 grid format. If required, you can reshuffle the numbers on the grid before you start. You now have three ships to position on the grid, one of which will take up one square, another that will take up two adjacent squares and a third which will take up three inline squares. Alternatively, you can press the appropriate button to randomly place your ships on the grid. Once positioned, the corresponding numbers on the grid form the six numbers you will play in the draw. When you submit your entry, the instant win game appears asking you to select one of four portholes. If the fish appears in your chosen porthole, you win €0.50.
King Card is laid out in a 9x4 grid format of playing cards. Select six cards which form the numbers you will play in the draw. Alternatively, you can use the buttons provided for the dealer to randomly select six cards of black, red or mixed suits. The suit displayed on each card does not have any influence on your chances of winning. When you submit your entry, the instant win game appears asking you to select one of four overturned cups. If the ball is found under your chosen cup, you win €0.50.
Magik Disco is a music-themed game, laid out in a 6x6 grid format. You have to select six numbers in either a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line.
