Questions of Sport pounds 40,000 to be won

Today we are giving you another sporting chance of an instant win.

In Saturday's paper, there was a Questions Of Sport multi-choice scratch card which, if you answer three sporting questions correctly, gives you the chance of an instant cash prize from pounds 1 to pounds 1,000.

You don't have to be an obsessive fan to play - a good general sporting knowledge should suffice. But remember, you only get one chance to answer each question, so if you are in any doubt, check it out.

The card contains eight games so you can play daily through to Friday 19 January.

And as well as the daily instant cash prizes there is a weekly accumulator prize of pounds 5,000.


Monday 15 January 1996

To claim prizes up to pounds 5

Today we are playing the section of the card dated Monday 15 January. Below are three sporting questions, each with three possible answers coded as A, B and C. Scratch off your answer to Question Ten, either A,B or C in the Q10 column then repeat for Q11 and Q12.

Scratch off ONE letter only for each question. If you reveal three identical cash amounts on any one game section on one day, you win that amount.

After you have played the last game on your card, total the cash amounts you have revealed. If your total is pounds 5,000 you win or share the pounds 5,000 accumulator prize.
