The Big Match

The Game

The Big Match is a scratchcard game. There are 9 covered sections on the scratchcard. Each section hides a symbol. The player is presented by the gamescreen which consists of the 9 sections of the scratchcard after the game has loaded.

Starting the Game

To begin, press ‘Place Bet’, press the Space Bar or click on the central area. Any of these options will action the purchase of 1 or more cards as defined by the values shown in the Stake and Auto Play fields.

How To Play

– Select your stake value either using the up and down arrows in the Stake field, or by typing the amount into the Stake field and pressing Enter or clicking on any blank area of the game screen. The Stake amount displayed is the stake you are placing on a single card.

– The Auto Play field allows the purchasing of multiple cards. The default for this field is 1. To purchase only one card, ensure that this field is set to 1. To purchase more than one card, enter the number required either using the up and down arrows in the Auto Play field, or by typing the required number into the Auto Play field. The total currency amount that will be removed from your available balance (assuming Auto Play is not stopped) is the Stake amount multiplied by the number of Auto Plays selected.

– Click on the Place Bet(s) button. One scratchcard will be purchased and the single Stake amount will be removed from your available balance. If you purchased multiple cards using the Auto Play functionality, this will be the first of your purchased cards.

– Reveal the symbols on your card by clicking on each individual symbol or by pressing ‘reveal all’.

–  Once all symbols on your card have been revealed, if you purchased multiple cards using Auto Play, your next scratchcard will be purchased and the single Stake amount will again be removed from your available balance. This will continue until the specified number of Auto Plays have been actioned or Auto Play is stopped (see ‘Game Controls’).


There are 5 symbols over varying values (see Lines & Payouts) to be displayed randomly on sections:

Winning Bets
