If you want to make a purchase for an amount greater than the remaining Balance, you must notify the merchant before completing the transaction.
Once you’ve spun in the Spin and Win Game and you win an Instant Win, your confirmation screen will tell you if you have won an Instant Win prize. You will also receive an email confirmation of your Instant Win.
