App description

Magic 10 is a virtual card game that requires basic adding up skills, helping children memorise and practice which number combinations equal 10, such as 3 and 7, 2 and 8 etc. The player is dealt cards displaying numbers from 0 to 10 and has to pick the correct cards from an open deck to add to 10. Correct answers are rewarded with points. Players can choose from three different decks of cards: depending on the skill level, one deck has numbers and a grid of 10 tick boxes so that children can count empty boxes to work out the correct answer, another has numbers along with the equivalent number of stars, and the third deck has numbers only. It can be played by one or two players who take it in turns and compete.

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.
