5.         HOW TO PLAY THE ONLINE GAME

The Contest includes an online wheel game (the “Game”) that takes place on the Contest Website where entrants have the chance to: (i) earn entries (each, an “Entry”) into the Grand Prize Draw (defined below); and/or (ii) become a potential Online Instant Win Prize winner.


To play the Game, login to the Contest Website and you will be presented with the Game and a spinning wheel (the “Game Wheel”). The Game will be separated into three (3) different categories (each a “Category”). The three (3) Categories will be named: 1) Convenience, 2) Health, and 3) Beauty. Each Category will be a different colour (a “Category Colour”) on the Game Wheel.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Game Wheel will also feature eleven (11) different products (each a “Game Product”).


The Game Wheel will be separated into twelve (12) segments (each, a “Wheel Segment”). Eleven (11) Wheel Segments will each be associated with one (1) Category Colour and one (1) Game Product, and the remaining Wheel Segment will not (the “Instant Win Wheel Segment”). Further information regarding how to win an Online Instant Win Prize is provided below.


Following the on-screen instructions, you can place Bets (defined below) on the Game Wheel to select Game Products and/or Categories, and then spin the Game Wheel (each time you spin the Game Wheel is a game play (a “Game Play”)). Once the Game Wheel ceases to spin, a randomly selected Wheel Segment will be highlighted (as determined by a computer algorithm). Following a Game Play, if the Game Product(s) you selected match (a “Game Product Match”) and/or Category(ies) you selected match (a “Category Match”) the highlighted Wheel Segment, you may receive Entries, as follows:


  1. for each Category Match, you will be awarded with three (3) Entries multiplied by the amount of Bets you placed on that Category (subject to compliance with these Rules, as determined by the Sponsor at its sole discretion) (the odds of obtaining a Category Match in relation to a Convenience Category Colour selection are 1/4, the odds of obtaining a Category Match in relation to a Beauty Category Colour selection are 1/4, and the odds of obtaining a Category Match in relation to a Health Category Colour selection are 1/3); and
  2. for each Game Product Match, you will be awarded with twelve (12) Entries  multiplied by the amount of Bets you placed on that Game Product (subject to compliance with these Rules, as determined by the Sponsor at its sole discretion) (the odds of obtaining any given Game Product Match in relation to any given Game Play are 1/11).


For greater certainty, if you place two (2) Bets on a Category, and after a Game Play the Wheel Segment of that Category is highlighted, you will earn six (6) Entries (three (3) Entries multiplied by two (2) Bets). Should you place two (2) Bets on a Product, and after a Game Play the Wheel Segment of that Product is highlighted, you will win twenty four (24) Entries (twelve (12) Entries multiplied by two (2) Bets).
