Trivia

During the programs half hour, after the early rounds were solved, 'Chuck Woolery (I)' took the solver(s) of each round to look over the prizes that were available for them to buy, such as automobiles, trucks, trips to countries, televisions and numerous other items, for him, her or them to buy. After prize buying, the contestants, could then put the remaining money (safely) on a gift-certificate ticket, or gamble by keeping it active, with him, her or them, on his, her or their "account", and if that person or group solved another round successfully with hitting a bankrupt, the money (that was held over on "account"), was immediately added to that puzzle solvers' next win. Then, the amount was won and what was held over on account were added together, so after the next win, so they could purchase higher priced items. On a few occasions, but extremely rarely, the puzzle solvers even put the whole amount to their account, in hoping to purchase and own a new automobile or truck. See more »
