Second Chance! 

  • The remaining 6 players who don’t attain the top game totals will compete in the Second Chance game where the winner receives an additional $5,000 and gets to also play in the Cash Challenge for $50,000.

Cash Challenge / Unlimited Winning!

  • Cash Challenge winners will trade-in their initial game prize total for a $50,000 or $75,000 championship total. If their luck continues, what happens next is really exciting!  Returning Champions play until their luck runs out and that could mean $50,000 turning into $100,000 that can turn into $200,000 that can turn into $300,000, …and on and on and on!
