A green tile indicates that a player has guessed the correct letter in that position, a yellow tile lets a player know that they have chosen a letter that features in the word of the day, but in the wrong place. Finally, a gray tile means that the letter selected is incorrect, and that is not part of the day's answer.

The chances of cracking the game on a first attempt are slim, according to onlineslots.com, which says the probability of doing so is 0.5 percent. The answer should become more obvious after a few attempts, as players are able to narrow down what letters are and are not in the answer of the day.

Should a player run out of attempts on the daily puzzle, the answer resets the following day.
