Lottso deluxe is the deluxe version of the classic game Lottso. There are ten rounds and each player is given the same six randomly selected Lottso numbered balls...with a different set for each round. Each player also has six random Lottso cards - think of these as scratch off tickets. Players use the numbered balls and try to match them to the numbered spaces in each Lottso card.
When players are able to cover all the spaces on the front of a game card, the card will flip over and activate a "scratcher" game or score bonus points for the player. There are several different kinds of game cards; some are like lottery cards - players scratch off spaces to reveal a prize, others cards score bonuses automatically.
There are several different kinds of game cards:
-- Scratch There are six prize boxes on the back of a scratch card and one of them hides a spoiler. Click on a prize box to reveal a number or the spoiler icon. You'll keep all the points you can score before revealing the spoiler icon.
-- Match Each of the six prize boxes on the back of a match card hides one copy of a matching set of scores. The first pair of matching numbers you reveal will be the prize.
-- High Bar Click on one of the 3 boxes at the bottom of the card. Watch the short animation to reveal your prize.
-- Trade In Scratch a box, click DONE to select the revealed score, or click another box to reveal a new score. The last box you scratch will be your prize.
-- Charity The lowest scoring player (or players) in the previous round is the designated charity case. When you scratch the prize box on the back of this card, half the prize amount will be awarded to you and half will be awarded to the charity case. If you are the charity case when you play this card, you will score the full value of the prize box.
-- Lottso The Lottso Card works like a progressive jackpot. Every round the card is not activated by one of the players in the room, the value of the card increases. You'll earn the value showing of the face of the card when you activate it. Everyone who activates the card that round will also earn that amount, but the next round the Lottso! Card will reset to it's initial value.
-- Team Lottso The Team Lottso! Card is a special cooperative card. The value of the card depends on the number of players who activate it that round. Each card activated adds 50 points to the value. You can activate more than one Team Lottso! Card at time, each counts as an additional activation. The maximum value of the card is 500 points or 10 players.
-- Fire Card The fire card is rare, but has a potential negative consequence. After three rounds, the fire card will burst into flames and burn the cards beneath it. Try to activate any cards beneath the fire card before they are burned!
-- Super Lottso The Super Lottso card is a rare occurrence. It appears when a player can clear all three cards from a column in one turn. The Super Lottso card is the size of three regular game cards. The front of the Super Lottso card has 12 number spaces, so it is hard to activate, particularly late in the game. However, the backside contains a mega-scratch game - where big point bonuses can be scored.
As players accumulate points they are added to the score area. At the end of the round, the scores are calculated and the players' current positions are updated on the leaderboard. If players can score 3000 points (or if they win the game), they will earn a Jackpot Spin. After ten rounds, the player with the most points will win the game.
There are 50 Lottso! Deluxe ranks that represent your progress in the game. You will make progress towards your next rank each time you place a ball on a scratcher card while playing multi-player. You will be awarded a special Game Award badge when you reach ranks 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50.
