App description

This educational app is a mathematical puzzle where the player has to rotate the wheel of numbers until the required number appears in each circle.

Once this goal is achieved the player moves on to the next puzzle.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
