Hacker lures Digit to a fantastic cyber amusement park and holds him captive. When the kids arrive, they analyze the games of chance, figuring out which games are fair and which ones are not, and use what they learn to find Hacker and beat him at his own game before it's too late.
Digit goes to the Cybersite R-Fair City for some fun and decides to try out a new game,not knowing it's a trick devised by Hacker. Taking two numbers from a hat, Didgit multiplies them and ends up with an even number-8. But when he falls into the water, he finds himself locked in a cage!
