event registration cards are used, all cards shall be pooled together and individual cards shall be
selected.
27. Regardless of the method of registration used, Producer or Producer’s designee will then draw sixty
(60) names at random. Not all sixty (60) selected names may be called to play. All registered Eligible
Individuals are eligible to be selected for the Showcase round. Eligible Individuals who are selected

round will be ineligible to participate in any One Bid rounds. This rule does not apply to a Proxy
Player, as defined below.
28. When the name on a card is announced, the Eligible Individual named must immediately make it
known that he/she are present. If, after thirty (30) seconds, the Producer is unable to readily identify
the person whose name was called as being present in the auditorium, the Eligible Individual will be
deemed absent and another card will be drawn and a new Eligible Individual will be selected as the
Contestant. If the new Eligible Individual is absent, the process described above will be repeated
until an Eligible Individual who is present is selected as the Contestant.
29. In the event that an Eligible Individual is chosen by having his/her name randomly drawn, and does
not wish to play the game, he/she may forfeit his/her participation in the Show, and Producer shall
randomly select another Eligible Individual.
30. In the event that an Eligible Individual is unable to play due to physical injury, illness, infirmity or
incapacity, said Eligible Individual may designate a proxy player to play on his/her behalf, provided
such designated proxy player also meets the eligibility criteria set forth herein (the “Proxy Player”).
All prizes won by the designee are the property of the original person whose name was selected.
Conditions for the Awarding of and Winning of Prize(s):
31. Awarding of prizing is contingent on verification that Contestant was an Eligible Individual by
verifying age, residency, and that the Eligible Individual was not deemed “ineligible” by virtue of past
participation in the Promotion or Show or under any terms as set out in Official Rule # 8 above. In
the event that an ineligible person participates in the event and is potentially eligible for prizing, this
person will be disqualified from winning the prize and the prize will be forfeited and will not be
played for again.

42. The prices listed for items used for game play throughout the Show are obtained from Walmart,
Amazon, Brookstone, Best Buy, manufacturers and other authorized dealers or suppliers. Prices for
items for Shows in the United States will be based on US prices, while prices for items for Shows in
Canada will be based on either Canadian prices (where available) or on the US price converted into
the price in Canadian dollars at the currency conversion rate, which rate shall be obtained no more

based on US prices and are listed in US dollars. For Shows performed in Canada, prices are based on
Canadian prices where available or on the US price converted into the price in Canadian dollars at

• Prices from Amazon are defined by Amazon as follows: “Except where noted otherwise, the
List Price displayed for products on our website represents the full retail price listed on the
product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or estimated in accordance with
standard industry practice. The List Price is a comparative price estimate and may or may
not represent the prevailing price in every area on any particular day. For certain items that
are offered as a set, the List Price may represent ‘open-stock’ prices, which means the
aggregate of the manufacturer’s estimated or suggested retail price for each of the items
included in the set. Where an item is offered for sale by one of our merchants, the List Price
may be provided by the merchant.”

One Bid, Big Wheel & Game Processes
44. One Bid Process
• The One Bid takes place with selected eligible audience members adjacent to the stage in an
area known as “Contestant’s Row. The One Bid game is used to determine which one (1) of
the four (4) Contestants at Contestant’s Row will have the chance to participate in the Game
Processes (as defined below) described below. Each respective Contestant will have his/her
own microphone and numerical display on Contestants’ Row.
• An item is described by the Show announcer and displayed on stage. All four (4) Contestants
on Contestants’ Row bid on the price of the item, which is graphically displayed on each
Contestant’s respective numerical display. No Contestant may bid the exact same price on
the same item as another Contestant.
• The Contestant who bids closest to the retail price of the item (without exceeding the price
of the item) wins the chance to come on stage to participate in the game process for Punch
A Bunch, Any Number, Cliff Hangers, Check Out, Plinko® or Range Game (if applicable)
(individually or collectively, the “Game Process(es)”). No Contestants, including any
Contestant who wins the chance to participate in the Game Processes described here, do
not win the item(s) described and displayed in any One Bid.
• The three (3) remaining Contestants return to their seats with a Consolation Prize.
• Should a Contestant bid the exact retail price of the item, he/she will receive a one hundred
dollar ($100.00) cash bonus. Any cash paid immediately on stage to the Contestant is for
display purposes only, to be replaced by a check issued by the Producer and sent by mail to
address provided by winning Contestant.
• In the event that all of the Contestants have overbid, a buzzer will sound. The host will then
ask each of the Contestants to make another bid lower than the lowest of the previous bids.
The Contestants will place their second bids in the same order they placed their original
bids. This process continues in this manner until there is at least one (1) Contestant who has
NOT overbid. If the price of the One Bid is accidentally or inadvertently revealed before the
Contestants can place new bids, the Contestant whose bid was closest to the price of the
One Bid item will play the applicable Game Process on stage.
• If a Contestant on stage is found to be ineligible, the Contestant from the remaining three
(3) One Bid players whose bid was next closest to the price of the One Bid item, without
exceeding the price of the item, will play the Game Process on stage. If all three (3)
remaining Contestants have overbid, the Contestant whose bid was closest to the price of
the One Bid will play the Game Process on stage.
• In the event of an error in a One Bid, the Game Process prize that would have been played
for by the Contestant shall be awarded to the Contestant who bid closest to the price of the
item, without exceeding the item’s price.
45. Punch A Bunch Game Process
• The Contestant playing Punch A Bunch may win up to five thousand dollars ($5,000.00).
• The game involves a punchboard with 50 paper-covered holes, each containing a card with a
dollar value in the amount of one hundred dollars ($100.00), two hundred dollars ($200.00),
three hundred dollars ($300.00), five hundred dollars ($500.00), seven hundred fifty dollars
9
($750.00), one thousand dollars ($1000.00) or five thousand dollars ($5,000.00). The
Producer reserves the right to alter the dollar values on the cards.
• The Contestant is shown four (4) grocery items, each tagged with an incorrect price.
• The announcer describes the first item and the Contestant states whether the correct price
for the item is higher or lower than the price displayed. If the Contestant is correct, he/she
earns one (1) “punch” at the board and will make a punch wherever he/she chooses. The
card inside the punched hole remains inside the hole and is not revealed. If the Contestant is
incorrect, no hole is punched. The announcer then describes the second item and the
Contestant states whether the correct price for the item is higher or lower than the price
displayed. If the Contestant is correct, he/she earns one (1) punch at the board, as described
above. This process continues one (1) item at a time, until the prices of all four (4) items
have been revealed and the Contestant makes a punch for each correctly guessed price.
• The card in the first hole punched is removed and shown to the Contestant. The Contestant
then decides whether to keep the cash amount shown on the card and end the game or to
give back the card and continue. If the Contestant elects to keep the amount shown on the
card, the game is over. If the Contestant chooses to continue, he/she returns the card to the
host. The amount on that card is thereby forfeited. Then the card in the second hole
punched is revealed and the Contestant again chooses whether to quit and keep the
amount on the card that has just been revealed, or to return the card and continue playing.
This continues until the Contestant either accepts the cash amount shown on a card or has
no more holes to look in. If there are no remaining punched holes, the Contestant wins the
amount of money shown on the card found in the final hole. The dollar amounts from all of
the punches are NOT cumulative; the Contestant is only able to win the cash amount shown
on the sole punch card he/she selects.
• If one (1) of the holes punched does not contain a card, the game is stopped and the cards
are reshuffled and reset. The process will then continue from the point left off at prior to
the empty hole being punched.
46. Any Number Game Process
• The Any Number game board contains ten (10) spaces representing the dollar amount of
two (2) prizes and the amount of money in a Piggy Bank, represented in numerical digits.
The spaces on the game board are distributed in the following manner: four (4) spaces
represent the digits for Prize #1, three (3) spaces represent the digits for Prize #2, and three
(3) spaces represent the digits for the Piggy Bank. The Piggy Bank amount is not a whole
dollar value and has a decimal point. The price of Prize #1 and Prize # 2 are represented in a
whole dollar amount.
• The Contestant chooses a digit zero (0) through nine (9). Each digit appears on the board
only once. The digit the Contestant chooses lights up, revealing its location on the game
board. The Contestant then chooses another digit and its location on the game board is
revealed. The Contestant continues calling out digits, one (1) at a time. The process
continues until the Contestant correctly calls out all of the digits of either Prize #1, Prize #2,
or the Piggy Bank first. The process ends after the first of all of the digits of Prize #1, Prize
#2, or the Piggy Bank are correctly guessed by the Contestant.
• If the Contestant correctly guesses the price of either Prize #1 or #2 first, he/she will receive
the prize he/she correctly guessed the price for. If the Contestant correctly guesses the
amount in the Piggy Bank first, then the Contestant will win the dollar amount in the Piggy
Bank.
10
• If a total equipment failure occurs, which prevents the Contestant from being able to play or
to complete playing the game, the Contestant shall be awarded Prize #1 and Prize #2.
47. Cliff Hangers Game Process
• The Contestant comes on stage to play Cliff Hangers for a prize.
• The game is played on a graphic representation of a mountain which ascends to an abrupt
cliff. At the base of the mountain stands a mountain climber whose pickaxe marks his
position on the mountain. The mountain is divided into twenty five (25) steps from the base
to the edge of the cliff. The Contestant wins the prize package if the mountain climber does
not move more than twenty five (25) steps, and remains on the mountain.
• Three (3) small items are displayed on stage and described by the announcer.
• The Contestant bids on the price of the first item presented. If the Contestant correctly bids
the price, the mountain climber does not move. If the Contestant does not bid the exact price
of the item (whether higher or lower than the correct price) the mountain climber must
ascend the mountain. The mountain climber ascends one (1) step along the mountain for
every dollar the Contestant’s bid differs from the price of the item. If the mountain climber
falls off the mountain, the game is over and the Contestant does not win the prize package or
any other prizes.
• If the mountain climber has not fallen off of the mountain after the Contestant’s first bid,
then the Contestant bids on the price of the second item presented. The process for the first
item described above is repeated for the second item.
• If the mountain climber has not fallen off of the mountain after the Contestant’s second bid,
then the Contestant bids on the price of the third item presented. The process for the first
item described above is repeated for the third item.
• If an error that would have changed the final outcome of the game is discovered following
the conclusion of the game, the Contestant shall be awarded the prize package.
• If a total equipment failure occurs which prevents the Contestant from being able to play or
to complete playing the game, the Contestant shall be awarded Prize package.
48. The Big Wheel Process
• Producer will randomly select three (3) Eligible Individuals who were not selected to
participate in the One Bid Process (and therefore did not have the opportunity to play a
Game Process), as Contestants to spin the Big Wheel. If any of the three (3) Eligible
Individuals selected is not present in the showroom when his/her name is called or is in the
showroom but doesn’t make his/her presence known when his/her name is called, he/she
forfeits the opportunity to play the Big Wheel and another Eligible Individual will be called.
This process will continue until an Eligible Individual makes his/her presence known when
his/her name is called.
• The Big Wheel is a wheel with twenty (20) numbered spaces. The numbering system begins
at 5 cents ($.05) and increases by 5-cent ($.05) increments, until the amount reaches one
dollar ($1.00).
• The Contestant who gets closest to one dollar ($1.00) without exceeding one dollar ($1.00),
using one (1) spin or a combination of two (2) spins, wins a prize.
• The Contestants spin the wheel in the order in which they were selected.
• Each Contestant must spin the wheel for at least one (1) full revolution. If a Contestant does
not spin the wheel one (1) full revolution, that spin is invalid and the Contestant must spin
again. If the Contestant still cannot spin the wheel one (1) full revolution, the host may assist
the Contestant with his/her spin. In the event that a Contestant is not physically able to spin
the wheel for at least one (1) full revolution, he/she may designate a Proxy Player to spin the
11
wheel for him/her. The Proxy Player shall not be eligible to win any money or prizes as a
result of being selected by the Contestant to spin the wheel in his/her place.
• Before the first Contestant spins the- Big Wheel, the wheel is set to the one dollar ($1.00)
space.
• Each Contestant spins the wheel. The amount that the wheel lands on is the Contestant’s
score for the first spin. Once the wheel has stopped for three (3) seconds, the spin is
considered final, even if the wheel should subsequently move to an adjacent space. After
his/her first spin, the Contestant must decide if he/she would like to spin the wheel one (1)
more time. If the Contestant decides not to spin the wheel again, his/her final score is the
score from his/her first spin. If the Contestant decides to spin the wheel again, he/she spins
the wheel and the amount that the wheel lands on is the Contestant’s score for the second
spin. If the Contestant decides to spin the wheel twice, his/her score from the first and
second spin are added together to determine the Contestant’s final score.
• The Contestant whose final score is closest to one dollar ($1.00) without exceeding one dollar
($1.00) is the winner of the Big Wheel game and wins a two hundred fifty dollar ($250.00)
cash prize. If the Contestant’s final score is over one dollar ($1.00), the Contestant will not be
able to win any money or prizes and will no longer be able to participate in the Big Wheel
process.
• If any Contestant spins exactly one dollar ($1.00) in one (1) or a combination of two (2) spins,
he/she wins one hundred dollars ($100.00) and will receive a bonus spin. For the bonus spin,
the wheel is reset to the 5-cent ($.05) space. The Contestant will spin the wheel one (1) time.
If the Contestant does not spin the wheel one (1) full revolution, the spin is invalid and the
Contestant will not receive an additional bonus spin (if a Contestant is not physically able to
spin the wheel, he/she may designate a Proxy Player to spin for him/her as described above).
If the wheel lands on the 5-cent or 15-cent ($.05 or $.15) sections, the Contestant will win an
additional one thousand dollars ($1,000.00). If the wheel lands on the one dollar ($1.00)
space, the Contestant will win an additional bonus cash prize of five thousand dollars
($5,000.00).
• In the event that at least one (1) or more Contestants have the same final score, a spin-off is
held. Each Contestant with the highest final scores will be allowed one (1) additional spin of
the wheel. The order in which the Contestants spin the wheel shall remain the same as
initially determined. Whoever achieves the highest score on the spin-off spin is the winner of
the Big Wheel game. If a Contestant participating in the spin-off lands on the one dollar
($1.00) spot during the spin-off, he/she will win one hundred dollars ($100.00) and will earn a
bonus spin. For the spin-off bonus spin, the wheel shall be reset to the 5-cent ($.05) space.
The Contestant will spin the wheel one (1) time. If the Contestant does not spin the wheel
one (1) full revolution, the spin is invalid and the Contestant will not receive an additional
bonus spin (if a Contestant is not physically able to spin the wheel, he/she may designate a
Proxy Player to spin for him/her as described above). If the wheel lands on either the 5-cent
or 15-cent ($.05 or $.15) sections, the Contestant will win an additional bonus cash prize of
one thousand dollars ($1,000.00). If the wheel lands on the one dollar ($1.00) space, the
Contestant wins an additional bonus cash prize of five thousand dollars ($5,000.00).
• In the event that at least two (2) Contestants have the same final score and that final score is
one dollar ($1.00), each Contestant will be awarded one hundred dollars ($100.00) and a
bonus spin-off will take place. For the bonus spin-off, each Contestant will be allowed to spin
of the wheel one (1) additional time. The order in which the Contestants spin the wheel shall
remain the same as initially determined. The wheel shall be resent to the five-cent ($.05)
12
space prior to each Contestant’s bonus spin. If a Contestant spins and the wheel lands on the
five-cent ($.05) or fifteen-cent ($.15) space, the Contestant will win an additional one
thousand dollars ($1,000.00). If a Contestant spins and the wheel lands on the one dollar
($1.00) space, the Contestant will win an additional five thousand dollars ($5,000.00). The
Contestant with the highest score in the bonus spin-off will win an additional bonus cash
prize in the amount of two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00). If a Contestant does not spin the
wheel for at least one (1) full revolution for the bonus spin-off, he/she must spin the wheel
again (if a Contestant is not physically able to spin the wheel, he/she may designate a Proxy
Player to spin for him/her as described above). However, that spin will no longer be
considered a bonus spin, and the Contestant will not be eligible to win the bonus cash prizes
from the spin-offs and bonus spin-offs described above.
• In the event that a Contestant has the same final score as another Contestant during the
bonus spin-off, a final spin-off will occur. However, this spin will not be considered a bonus
spin, and the Contestant will not be eligible to win the bonus cash prizes from the spin-offs
and bonus spin-offs described above. The winning Contestant in the final spin-off will win a
cash prize of two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00).
• In the event the Big Wheel wheel malfunctions in a way in which the Producer determines
could affect fairness, each Contestant who is still participating in the Big Wheel process will
receive two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00). In case a malfunction of this nature should occur
during a spin-off or a bonus spin-off, each Contestant who is still participating in the Big
Wheel Process will receive the top cash prize of one thousand dollars ($1,000.00).
• Any cash paid immediately on stage to Contestant(s) is for display purposes only, to be
replaced by a cash voucher after the Show. Non-winners will receive a Consolation Prize.
49. Check Out Game Process
• A Contestant will come on stage to play Check Out for a prize package. If the Contestant can
price five (5) grocery items and guess the total actual price of the five (5) items within two
dollars ($2.00) of the price of the five (5) items (whether higher or lower than the actual
cost), he/she will win the prize package.
• Five (5) grocery items are shown on stage and described by the announcer.
• One (1) at a time, the Contestant guesses the price of each item.
• The total sum of the five (5) prices guessed by the Contestant is then displayed on the screen
on stage.
• The actual price of each item is revealed one (1) at a time. After each reveal, the cumulative
sum of the actual prices of the items are displayed on screen.
• After the actual price of the fifth item is revealed, the final actual total is displayed. If the
Contestant’s total is within two dollars ($2.00) (whether higher or lower) than the actual
total, the Contestant will win the prize package.
• If any errors that would change the outcome of the game are made by the Producer or Show
staff, the Contestant will be awarded the prize package.
50. Range Game Game Process
• The Contestant comes on stage to play Range Game for a prize.
• The Contestant will be shown the prize which they can win.
• A $500 range of numbers is displayed to the contestant.
• A $100 rangefinder begins to travel over the numbers.
• The contestant must stop the rangefinder when it covers the price of a prize. If successful,
the contestant wins the prize.
13
• If any errors that would change the outcome of the game are made by the Producer or Show
staff, the Contestant will be awarded the prize.
51. The Plinko® Game Process
• The Plinko® game is played on a tall rod-studded game board that is almost upright. Discs are
dropped one (1) at a time from a position above the multi-rodded surface. Each disc falls
down the game board by gravity and each disc bounces off rods in its path until it reaches the
bottom of the game board and drops into one (1) of nine (9) receptacles. The nine (9)
receptacles are worth dollar values ranging from zero dollars ($0.00) to five hundred dollars
($500.00). The value of the receptacles are, from left to right, fifty dollars ($50.00), one
hundred dollars ($100.00), two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00), zero dollars ($0.00), five
hundred dollars ($500.00), zero dollars ($0.00), two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00), one
hundred dollars ($100.00), and fifty dollars ($50.00). The Producer reserve the right to alter
the dollar values on the receptacles.
• The Contestant is awarded one (1) disc upon starting the game and then can win up to four
(4) more discs during the course of the game process, for a total of up to five (5) discs.
A Contestant can win additional discs by guessing one (1) of the digits corresponding to the
price of a small item. The Contestant will be presented with four (4) small items, one (1) at a
time. Each item will be displayed with two (2) numerical digits alongside it. One (1) of the
two (2) digits is a digit that is a part of the item’s price while, the other digit is a false number,
which is not a part of the item’s price. The Contestant must select the digit that is part of the
item’s price. If he/she is correct, the Contestant wins a disc. If he/she is wrong, then the true
digit is revealed and that opportunity is lost. For example, a rice cooker valued at fifty dollars
($50.00) is shown with these two (2) digits: 8 0. The second digit is the correct digit and
selecting the zero (0) wins the player a disc. The first digit is false and by selecting the eight
(8), the Contestant loses the opportunity to get a disc.
• Contestants do NOT win any of the items that they price in this game.
• If a graphics error occurs while the Contestant is shown the digits for an item, and such error
would change the outcome of the Game Process, the Contestant will be awarded the disc
he/she would have won for that item.
• If a disc gets stuck on the peg, the host may use The Plinko® game stick to free the disc.
However, this will nullify the outcome of that disc. The stuck disk will be returned to the
Contestant, who will drop the disc again.
• The collective dollar amounts the disc(s) land on is the cash prize amount the Contestant
shall receive as a prize (i.e., if a Contestant receives two (2) discs and one (1) lands on a fifty
dollar ($50.00) receptacle and one (1) lands on the one hundred dollar ($100.00) receptacle,
the Contestant will win one hundred fifty dollars ($150.00) as a cash prize).
52. Showcase Process
• Producer will randomly select two (2) Contestants as set forth in Official Rules # 26-30.
• Two (2) Contestants, chosen as described above, play the Showcase, competing for a prize
package. The Contestants are shown the Showcase prize package, which is described by the
announcer. After the entire Showcase prize package has been revealed, each Contestant
secretly writes down what he/she believes to be the total price of the Showcase prize
package. This is the Contestant’s bid.
• Contestants cannot not confer with anyone while determining his/her bid (including, but not
limited to, members of the audience) nor can they look at each other’s bids; to do so results
in disqualification from the Showcase.
14
• The host will ask each Contestant to verbally state his/her written bid. If the Contestant
states a different bid than the written bid, only the written bid will be considered valid. If a
Contestant has not written down a bid in the time allotted, he/she will be disqualified from
the Showcase.
• The host then announces which Contestant’s bid (if either) is closest to the price of the
Showcase prize package, without exceeding its price (provided that both Contestants have
placed valid bids).
• If the winning Contestant’s bid is under the actual price of the entire Showcase prize package,
that winning Contestant shall win a prize, pre-selected by the Producer, as described by the
announcer in-Show. If the winning Contestant’s bid is under the actual value of the Showcase
and within one hundred dollars ($100.00) of the price of the Showcase prize package, that
Contestant shall win all items featured in the Showcase.
• In the event that both Contestants’ bids are greater than the price of the Showcase prize
package, no prizes from the Showcase prize package will be awarded to either Contestant,
and each non-disqualified Contestant shall receive a Consolation Prize.
• At the Producer’s discretion, in the event that the bids of both Contestants are greater than
the price of the Showcase prize package, a pre-selected prize may be given to a randomly
selected Eligible Individual from the audience.
• In the event that both Contestants have the exact same written bid, have not overbid, and
are not disqualified, both Contestants shall win one (1) pre-selected prize from the Showcase
prize package as set forth above and which shall be the same for both Contestants. If both
bids are within one hundred dollars ($100.00) without going over, but are different from
each other, the Contestant whose bid is closest to the actual prize package price shall be the
sole winner, and shall win the entire Showcase prize package.
