The winners of Rounds 1, 2, and 3 receive bonus prizes of twenty five thousand dollars, forty thousand dollars, and 60,000 dollars respectively, and nine runner- up prizes are awarded. These may well include complimentary accommodations in the gambling establishment’s other hotels. Also, the player who amasses the highest variety of total winnings in all three rounds is awarded the title of Cumulative Winner and immediately advances to the Championship Playoff.
