OBJECT OF THE GAME
TOP UP any eligible INSTANT ticket and watch the lottery terminal screen to see if you’ve won a prize!
HOW INSTANT TOP UP WORKS
Players who purchase an INSTANT ticket can ask to TOP UP their game, for a chance to instantly win prizes, including the INSTANT TOP UP jackpot.
The jackpot starts at $25,000 and grows until it’s won. INSTANT TOP UP uses a Random Number Generator (RNG) to determine the outcome instantly—no number selections or waiting for a draw. Your randomly determined outcome is then shown on the lottery terminal screen.
TOP UP is its own game—winning in TOP UP does not require winning on your INSTANT ticket.
