What is the difference between a coupon and a ticket?
A coupon is a printed form which is used by a player before purchasing a SUPER 5 ticket to indicate the selection of numbers and playing options. The ticket is the receipt you will be given after presenting your coupon to the Point Of Sale (Lotto Booth) and after having paid the relative amount. The ticket is the only legal receipt which can be used to claim a prize.


What is a “Column”?
In the Super 5 Game, each combination of 5 numbers is known as a Column.




PLAYING OPTIONS:


Can I play the same numbers for a number of weeks? Or do I have to purchase a ticket every time?
You may participate in more than one draw with the same numbers. All you have to do is mark a number from two to ten in the Consecutive Draws section on the coupon, to participate in that particular number of consecutive draws. Should you wish to participate in more than 10 consecutive draws, you may mark the x2 and x3 fields to further increase the number of draws. This may be done up to a maximum of 30 consecutive draws. The full value of the coupon must be paid when purchasing the ticket. Please note that the Consecutive Draws selection is valid for all Game Areas of the coupon.


Can I play a number of combinations on one ticket?
Yes. Using the Fully Expanded System (also known as a Combination Coupon) you increase your chances of winning by selecting more than 5 numbers in any one Game Area.


What are “Game Areas”?

Each Super 5 coupon contains four game areas (A, B, C, D). In each of the Game Areas a player may select numbers, or ask the terminal to randomly select numbers (Quick Pick). A Simple Column or a Fully Expanded System may be played in each Game Area.


What does “Quick Pick” mean on a coupon?

With the Quick Pick option the on-line terminal randomly picks your numbers. To use this option just mark the Quick Pick box in the Game Area of your choice and choose and mark a number (up to 20) from the Game Area to indicate how many numbers you would like the terminal to choose.


What does “Void” mean on a coupon?

Should you wish to cancel one of the Game Areas on the coupon just mark the VOID box within that particular Game Area. If, for example, you cancel Game Area A, the choices you marked in Game Area B, C, and D would still be valid.


What does “Consecutive Draws” mean on a coupon?

With the same coupon you may participate in more than one draw with the same numbers. All you have to do is mark a number from two to ten in the Consecutive Draws section, to participate in that particular number of consecutive draws. Should you wish to participate in more than 10 consecutive draws, you may mark the x2 or x3 fields to further increase the number of draws. This may be done up to a maximum of 30 consecutive draws. The full value of the coupon must be paid when purchasing the ticket. Please note that the Consecutive Draws selection is valid for all Game Areas of the coupon.



What is the difference between a “Simple Column” and a “Fully Expanded
System”?

To play SUPER 5 with a Simple Column, choose and mark only five numbers in at least one of the four game areas on the coupon (A,B,C,D). In the Fully Expanded System, which is also known as a Combination Coupon, you increase your chances of winning by selecting more than 5 numbers in any one Game Area.



I have just noticed that the Point of Sale (Lotto Receiver) person gave me the
wrong numbers? Can I cancel the ticket?

It is your responsibility to ensure that the numbers printed on the ticket are correct before leaving the Point Of Sale (Lotto Booth). Ticket cancellation may take place within 10 minutes from the time when the ticket was issued, provided that the cancellation takes place before the game period elapses. You have a right to a refund of your stake.
