Our Terms and Conditions
- Only individuals aged 18 or older may participate in this game.
- This game is in no way associated with – nor sponsored by – Apple or Google.
In Scratch It, the object is to find three identical amounts/symbols. These amounts/symbols make up the total winnings of the Game. You can only play Scratch It ONCE a day on your own. However, if you team up with your WHOSSA friends, you can play up to THREE additional rounds of the Game per day. If you play with a Whossa friend, you each scratch half of the ticket and share any winnings equally, regardless of who scratched what.
In the Sponsor Game, the object is to find three identical amounts/symbols. These amounts/symbols make up the total winnings of the Game. In our Sponsor Games, you can win cash or a sponsored product. The products vary depending who is sponsoring the Game.
Lucky Spin, Bonus Spin, Bonus Bubble, LUCKY 3, LUCKY 100.
Once you’ve done all you can in Whossa and have finished your games, the Lucky Spin is activated. In the Lucky Spin, you can win Lucky Coins – the more, the better! You can only play the Lucky Spin ONCE a day. You can also win Lucky Coins in the Bonus Spin that may appear in the various games. Occasionally, you may uncover a Bonus Bubble with Lucky Coins in a game.
If you’re really lucky, you’ll make it onto the LUCKY 100, listing the top 100 players of the week. The luckiest player of the week, i.e. the one who collects the most Lucky Coins, wins first prize.
If multiple players have the same number of Lucky Coins, the ranking is based on who collected them first. However, you will share your common winnings (example: You and Bob47 each collect 197 Lucky Coins and are ranked 1st and 2nd on the Lucky Chart, respectively. You then share the prize money for first and second place). When the LUCKY 100 is full, i.e. when 100 players are listed, you have to earn more Lucky Coins than someone already on the LUCKY 100 to knock someone off the list.
Each day, you have the chance to become the LUCKY 3 winner. It works the same way as the LUCKY 100, but with 3 daily winners.
