Score System

The scoring system follows “Who wants to be a rich style” where you strive to get to an anchor point in order to earn that point. The anchor points are 100, 1000, 32000 & 1M.

Each question comes with its corresponding point or reward! You only have one attempt per question. Answering correctly automatically progresses you to the next question on the scale until you reach an anchor point to decide

If you want to proceed or give up. Giving up grants you the points allocated at that anchor level. Answering wrongly ends the game upon which you go home with the previous anchor points you attained.
