The French lottery company, Française des Jeux, has launched a new “phygital” (physical and digital) scratch-off game called “Menez l’enquête” (“Lead the investigation”) on March 6th, 2023. The game offers a double experience, where players can use an optional digital component to try and multiply their potential winnings after scratching off their physical ticket.
In the first step, players scratch off their physical ticket to see if they have won any prizes. If they do, they can either collect their winnings or use the digital component to try and multiply their prize by up to 10 times. In the digital component, players must click on different locations on a map to find stolen money while avoiding certain obstacles, and the amount of money found determines the final prize.
If the player loses in the digital component, they may still get to keep half of their winnings if they won more than €100. The game is available at all 30,000 points of sale for Française des Jeux.
