The game starts with the 'Fastest Finger First Round', with 10 contestants. The host asks all the ten participants a single question with multiple answers in a jumbled manner. The contestants then had to arrange the answers in the order.
The participant who places the four options in the correct order in the short time gets the chance to go on the "hot-seat". This leads to the final game of a participant with the host. The result is if the contestant wins, he gets a huge amount, and if he loses, he has to leave the hot-seat immediately.
