Kinzo > How to play
To play Kinzo, place your cash bet on the gaming table.
The Line: The first player in a Kinzo location to mark 5 numbers in a horizontal line and announces it by pressing the buzzer button in front of him or her, wins the prize associated with the line game.
The 15/15: The round continues until a player in one of the Kinzo halls, marks all 15 numbers on his or her card and announces it by pressing the button in front of him or her, thus winning the prize associated with the 15/15 game.
Both Kinzo games are always followed by a break during which tickets are sold for upcoming games for which they are issued.
At specific times, another type of ticket is sold. This is the Super Kinzo ticket, which costs $4. Besides certain distinctive features Super Kinzo gives players an additional chance to win thanks to the 2-line game**.
Kinzo prize amounts are determined by a system where all bets are pooled and vary in accordance with the amount of tickets sold in Kinzo locations.
The following table details the Kinzo prize structure.

If the project proves successful, additional stations could be set up throughout the Kinzo network.
