How to Play the Mega Crossword

A player has to scratch the 20 letters present under the boxes with question marks. Then a player has to transfer the discovered letters on your crossword grid, and scratch the corresponding letters. The goal of the game is to find as many complete words as possible in the grid. If a player manages to complete at least 2 words, you win. But to win the €600 000, a player has to complete 9 words!
The second level requires you to scratch the boxes with the question marks. If you find words that are also present in the crossword puzzle of the first game, then you win! You win the amount under the corresponding word’s winning box.
The last game is similar to the first game. You still have to scratch the letter boxes to make words. This time, you don’t have to find them in the grid of game 1, but in the list of the indicated words of game 3. If you find one of the words listed, then you win the prize associated with that word! It is possible to win up to €20,000 in this game.
