Only two game cards out of every 500,000 sold in this game of chance could win the top prize of $10,000.

But Mr John Berchmans, 69, a part-time property agent, was convinced that he had scored the top prize of $10,000 for each of the 43 Fast Start Scratchit! cards he had bought, which he claimed won him $430,000 in total.

He also claimed that each one of the 48 other cards he bought in two other games of chance also struck the top prize of $10,000 each. In all, he claimed that he should win $910,000. Singapore Pools disagreed.

Yesterday, Mr Berchmans went to trial seeking that amount from the lottery operator.

What is the difference between "in a row" and " in a column" ??

If Singapore Pool states clearly "in a row" and not " in a column" or "within the same square", ... what wins have this chap to complain about ???

"in a row" means literally .. from left to right, and vice versa!

"in a column" means literally ... from top to down, and vice versa!
