IMPORTANT NOTE TO PLAYERS: As with other net game shows, you are
not playing for real money and/or prizes. This is for entertainment
Accumulate the higher score in a series of spin-offs played out over two rounds.
A formal rules sheet will be released. Meantime, here's the least you need to know. The
net game version will be modeled after the show that aired in the mid-1970s
-- but with these differences...
- On the spinners will be depictions of an ace, king, queen, jack, ten and nine replacing the numbers 1-6.
- Spinners and the aforementioned symbols, collectively, will
resemble modern-day video slot machines -- but with just two
paylines. The top horizontal line will be for the champion; the
bottom line will be for the challenger.
- Before the game starts, the host will ask two opposing
players for as many as twenty buzz codes from 1-100 for the toss-up
questions prepared for the game.
- When the host posts a toss-up question, he will post the players' buzz codes as well as a secret number provided by
randomizer.org. Player closer to the secret number gets to respond; in case of a tie, the player who PMed
sooner takes the tie-break edge. A correct answer means the
player spins; a wrong answer means the opponent automatically spins.
- The player's buzz code will also affect the result of the
spin. After the question is answered, the host will program randomizer.org to generate 100 sets
of numbers with five numbers in each set. The numbers will range
from 9 to 14 inclusive with the possibility of repeats (an 11 will
represent a jack, a 12 queen, 13 king and 14 ace) and form the player's
spin. On a second or third spin, fewer numbers per set will
generate based upon which symbols the player wishes to keep and "spin
- Should both players end up with the same combinations (five
jacks on each row, for example), a tie-breaker question is asked and
plays as if it were a regular toss-up. However, a correct answer
is required to score money. This means if the player who "buzzes
in first" answers incorrectly and the opposition offers another wrong
answer, a new toss-up question is played.
- Dollar values from the original series will increase
tenfold (a winning combination of five of a kind will be worth $2000, a
winning pair awards $500).
time is called after the first round of play, the stakes double for the
second round (a winning combination of five of a kind will be worth
$4000, a winning pair awards $1000).
- When time is called after the second round of play, the game ends.
- The winning player is declared champion and plays a brief
bonus game worth instant cash, an advantage in the Super Spin-Off. or a
...the Super Spin-Off will play relatively close to the original series' bonus game -- but with these differences...
- Again, dollar values from the mid-1970s show are multiplied
by ten -- meaning a pair pays $2500. A consecutive straight pays
- The champion still spins the spinners one at a time.
Before each spin, six numbers ranging from 9 through 14 do not repeat
and are assigned by randomizer.org to the numbers 1 through 6. To
spin, the player calls out a number from 1 through 6 inclusive.
If the called number results in a 14, an ace appears on the board; a
result of 13 generates a king, 12 queen, 11 jack.
- Regardless of whether or not the champion wishes to keep
the symbol, randomizer.org assigns 9-14 to the numbers 1-6 ahead of the
- Once the player keeps the symbol or has exhausted three
spins on that spinner, the spinner freezes and the symbol displayed
stays frozen on the board until the end of the Super Spin-Off.
...a champion retires after playing five Super Spin-offs
or has reached or exceeded $250,000 in winnings by the end of a
particular Super Spin-Off. Once the champ reaches $250,000 or
more, the total quadruples for no less than $1,000,000.
Again, a formal rules sheet
will be released at a later point in time. For questions, please
