The game was made up of two rounds; the first round will have the two participant battle against each other in 3 out of 5 schemes.

The participant whose answers are nearest to the results of the poll for the 3 out of 5 questions will win the first round. The participant who loses the round will be eliminated from the game.
The participant who won in the first round will continue to the next and final round and will have a chance to win a cash prize of up to Rs. 10,00,00,000 simply by providing the precise approximate results of the survey from within the tapering percentage range of up to 4 poll questions. The participant will be given the same questions and arranged a range on the scale of 0-100 percent, which includes the correct answer such as, if the answer was 60%, then the range of the participant should have 60%. The size of the range will be reduced as the value of the money increases.

C. 20% Range = Rs. 10,00,000 Question

The correct answers to the first three questions will be shown if the participant will pull the lever down or locked-in an answer. The correct answer will be shown in the 4th question with Rs. 1,00,00,000, if the range of the contestant missed the poll question. But if it’s answered correctly, the participant will have a chance to win a total of Rs. 10,00,00,000 by selecting the precise percentage out of 10% range. Also, the participant has the chance to ask for help to his or her corresponding supporter before deciding to lock in an answer at the price of Rs. 10,00,00,000.

But if the participant agrees to lock in an answer, it cannot be undone and the participant will lose the options of getting the walk away prize of Rs. 1,00,00,000. If the participant locks in an answer, the result of the survey will be revealed. If the result is precisely the same as the participant’s answer, the participant will then be awarded with the grand prize Rs. 10,00,00,000; else, the participant will receive a total of Rs. 10,00,000.
