Mystery Machin Display


There is a pattern to this Machin display. The first person who can tell me what it is by leaving a comment will win a Machin prize. You must include the name for this type of arrangement. The contest is open until November 10 unless someone supplies the correct answer, in which case I may close it sooner.

It's a Sudoku grid.

Is is more than a sudoku and to me is more like a 10 x 10 version of McLoughlin Bros Giant Puzzle. ie no colour or number should be in a row or column.

It is not a sudoku, no, all colummns and rows add up to 45.

additional info: this type of FUN is simply called "Magical Square".
horizontal and vertical figures add up to 45.
