How does it work
a) Send keyword to short code to join wordgame. Charges apply ($3 per received MT message).
b) You will receive three sets of mixed up letters per week via SMS - unless you request more. If you can form ONE word per set, type that into a new text message and reply to the message sent to you.
Every reply will trigger a new set sent to you straight away.
c) All words nominated will be judged in accordance with Macquarie dictionary. If your word is correct, you will earn scores as follows:
Scores: The score of points depends on the number of letters in a word. 4-letter words score 5 points, 5-letter words score 10 points; 6-letter words score 15 points, 7-letter words score 20 points and 8-letter (or more) words score 50 points!
d) The more sets you can answer, the more points you will collect; the contestant with the most points at the end of the month will collect $1,000 in cash! Every monthly round closes at the last day of the month at 9 PM AEST.
e) Reply messages will inform you about your rank (applies to top 50 only).
f) You can play as long and as much as you want, to unsubscribe, just reply STOP to one of the messages.
