Apart from that, the contestant is also provided with 50 bundles, each of which amounts to two lakh rupees.
After this, the contestants are asked to allocate and distribute all the bundles to the seven unannounced questions. It is up to the contestant to decide how much he or she will put as a wager on each question. After the allocation of the bundles, the contestants are allotted a sixty seconds limit of time to answer each question, once they are revealed. The contestants are provided with a choice between two categories, from which he or she needs to decide on one for each question. Now, the questions are revealed sequentially. The first question will have a maximum of four possible answers, which will be hidden behind four trap doors. However, the contestants will be allowed to open only three trap doors. This rule remained the same for question number two and three as well.
The fourth, fifth, and the sixth question will have only three possible answers, and the contestants will be allowed to open only two. Eventually, when the seventh and the last question arrive there will be only two possible answers and the contestants will be allowed to open only one. This way the contestant gets to win all the bundles he or she put on the correct trap door. The maximum time each contestant was allowed to put the money the trap doors is no more than sixty seconds. This show became the most successful shows on the channel’s list of television shows that were telecasted during that year.
