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!

Landing in the city, the CyberSquad meets a woman named Lucky who explains that the games of R-Fair City are fair despite being games of chance,but there are rumours of an unfair game in the city.

Thinking the children have played 'Pure Chance',Hacker goes into one of the doors-and is tossed out of R-Fair City by choosing the wrong one!
