HERE'S HOW TO PLAY
This Crossword ticket features seven (7) play areas. The player removes the scratch-off material to reveal the YOUR 18 LETTERS area, three (3) Crossword Puzzle grids and two (2) Bonus areas. The "YOUR 18 LETTERS" area will reveal eighteen (18) letters and each "Crossword Puzzle Grid" will be eleven (11) spaces (high) by eleven (11) spaces (wide). The game is played by gently removing the scratch-off material on the "YOUR 18 LETTERS" play area. Then the player gently removes the scratch-off material on the corresponding letters in each of the "Crossword Puzzle Grids". Players win by revealing 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11 complete words in each "Crossword Puzzle Grid". Players win a prize according to the respective prize legend. Players will scratch the Multiplier Box to reveal a 1X, 2X, or 5X symbol in the box and will multiply the prize they won by the X they reveal. Players can also win by revealing the complete "Bonus Word" in either "BONUS" location to win $30 or $50. Each grid is played separately; players cannot combine words from each grid to win a prize amount. Wins in the "Bonus Word" area cannot be used in conjunction with the "Crossword Puzzle Grids." Players have five (5) chances to win on this ticket. A word must contain at least three letters. A word cannot be formed diagonally, from right to left or from bottom to top. Words must appear in an unbroken horizontal or vertical string of letters in each separate CROSSWORD PUZZLE. An unbroken string of letters: (a) cannot be interrupted by a black space and (b) each word must contain every single letter square between two black spaces or a black space and the grid's border. Every single letter in the unbroken string must be revealed in the YOUR 18 LETTERS and be included to form a word.
