2. When you have matched the letters of two (2) or more entire words in the Crossword Grid, win the corresponding prize shown in the PRIZE KEY. Only the highest prize won in the Crossword Grid will be paid.

3. Scratch each "MAGNIFYING GLASS" symbol that appears in the Crossword Grid. Each "MAGNIFYING GLASS" symbol is a free spot. When a "MAGNIFYING GLASS" symbol appears in any winning combination of words, win DOUBLE the corresponding prize found in the PRIZE KEY.
