How to play
Each Mega Ball game round starts with players setting the stake value and choosing the number of cards to play. From 1 up to 200 cards can be played per game round specifically. Cards are randomly generated, each consisting of 24 numbers, ranging 1 to 51 and arranged in a 5×5 layout. Whereas the middle position on each card is free and completes any line passing through it. Winning lines can be horizontal, vertical, also diagonal and are made up of 5 numbers. Finally, each card can have up to 9 winning lines.
First set your desired stake and select up to 200 cards to play in the game round. Once you have chosen a bundle, you can still add more cards and also change the stake for all cards. Additionally, while betting is open you can regenerate any card by selecting it and clicking the ‘Refresh Numbers’ button.
Betting then closes and the ball drawing mechanism starts the draw. From here on out, you really don’t have to do much more than just watch the game unfold. And maybe, also cross those fingers. 20 balls are then drawn from a total of 51 and the anticipation builds. Ball numbers matching those on your cards are automatically marked off as they are drawn, keep watching. Additionally, as winning lines are formed on your cards, corresponding winning amounts are updated below each card. And as numbers are marked off, the cards with the greatest winning potential are moved to the top. Numbers still to be drawn that would complete a winning line are also indicated.
Mega Ball bonus
Adding one more touch of excitement, each game round concludes with the Mega Ball bonus draw. One or two bonus rounds are possible and follows the initial 20 balls being drawn. This then determines your final winning amount for the game round by including additional multipliers. Before the bonus ball being drawn the multiplier value, ranging from 5x to 100x is randomly determined. A ball is now drawn to set the associated number. With the Mega Ball completing any line on a card, the payout value for that card increases by the multiplier.
