Visit the URL https://www.facebook.com/huaweidevice , and click on the game application (in the tab controls), after clicking, a prompt will appear asking if you have yet ‘Liked’ the Huawei local page (entrants who have already ‘Liked’ Huawei on Facebook will not see this prompt). If you have not ‘Liked’ Huawei local page, you will routed directly to it before being sent back to the game application page. Once you are successfully registered, you will be awarded with a half key (and the code attributed to it) automatically, allowing you to begin playing, in which you’ll earn credit in a number of ways.

Huawei Local homepage: Visit the local Huawei page and find the button directing you to the ‘Liking’ page in the tab controls. After ‘Liking’ the local Huawei page, you will be able to return to the Global page and open the application, and be authorized to enter the event page. Once you are successfully registered, you will be awarded with a half key (and the code attributed to it) automatically, allowing you to begin playing, in which you’ll earn credit in a number of ways.

b)Mobile Version

Scan the QR code or log in your Facebook account, enter the mobile application. A reminder will tell the user to enter the Facebook link and login. Users will then be prompted to ‘Like’ the local Huawei page to be able to enter the mobile application. Once you are successfully registered, you will be awarded with a half key (and the code attributed to it) automatically, allowing you to begin playing, in which you’ll earn points and credit in a number of ways.

2. Game Guide:

Choose a gift box to unlock by clicking the gift box icon. After you’ve snatched your gift box, the rolling gift image will freeze to display the gift being played for. At this time, a reminder will appear on the left-hand side of the gift box for the player to unlock the gift box, at which point their mouse cursor will turn into a key. Click the key to unlock (each key comes with three chances to unlock), but keep in mind that each attempt costs 200 credits. During the unlocking process, the icon on the left will start to roll. When the rolling stops, one of two things will happen:

a) If the icon on the left matches the one on the top of the gift box, you will need to invite a friend to participate in the final unlocking. Using your Facebook account, invite friends from the drop-down list, then select from your friends that accepted the invitation to begin unlocking the box together. As before, the icon on the right will start to roll. If all three icons match when the rolling stops, you both have successfully unlocked the gift box and are the winners of the prizes indicated in the icons. Your friend will automatically be informed, and you both will be able to claim your prize together. If the icons do not match however, you can always try again with a new gift box and 200 credits. The friend that you invited to participate also has three opportunities to unlock the third face of the box.

b) If the icons do not match, unlocking the gift box is unsuccessful and you will be asked to try again.
