'money put right into a game' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'right into a game' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'right' could be 'r' (common abbreviation) and 'r' is found within the answer.
'game' could be 'fives' (fives is a kind of game) and 'fives' is present in the remaining letters.
This accounts for all the letters.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).
