Anything. But. A Bomb...



... numero uno...

OH GOD!! :shock: :shock: Well if you were looking for more tension, we're about to change every non-Bomb left on that grid into Event Squares! Once you've picked one each (if you make it that far), there'll be a full redraw of the non-Bomb squares that are left!

We've finally seen some of every category now. Jerry just has to hope this next flip he sees is purple, and a good one at that!

There are at least two purple squares up there at this very minute... and if there was a Bomb overlap, then you shouldn't have anything to worry about here...




Good luck Jerry, here comes 8...









Image

It's the last Bomb!! :cry: :cry: Unfortunately mutated into a Wicked Six Bomb, which on top of your £610k penalty, piles on an extra £941,384 penalty as well. Thankfully it does still keep you above £12.6m for the round and above Kall who was originally atop the leaderboard, so this was a solid effort, but sadly a couple of strokes of bad luck and the round slipped away. We'll see you in Cycle 2 for more action, but for now, thanks so much for playing! :D

Well well TopKeeper, congratulations! You've just won your first round! :D You Win Bonus comprises of the £10,000,000 Flat Bonus, plus you'll get £250k + 60% for each of the 23 flipped squares, that's a total Win Bonus of £19,200,000 and brings you into the season lead with £25,600,000! Let's see the rest of that board...


4. Minesweeper
13. Contraband


You were one square away from BOTH of you winning the round! That's sadly even more gutting for Jerry! :cry:

Ah good game Jerry and the rest of you all! I was gonna pick 4 next and be safe, that Bomb Frenzy fizzle save though, a stroke of massive TopLuck for me. But regardless, GG all!

It's the first minigame of the season, TopKeeper, let's play PRODUCT PLACEMENT!

In this game, you're playing for the price of many many big gifts you can purchase from John Lewis and Partners! Our prizes range from a £1,199 spin bike, all the way up to a £7,999 luxury garden pod!

That big grid has numbers from 15 to 75 inclusive, from which you'll pick four numbers. You'll have to arrange those four numbers into two pairs which we will multiply together to give you two nice chunky numbers. After that, you'll pick two squares from the smaller grid which are our nine prize items. We'll multiply the smaller number by the price of the first item, then multiply the larger number by the price of the second item. We'll add those together and that's what you'll take to the bank!

Let's kick off with four numbers from that first grid, please!

Alrighty! Well there's a decision to be made between the first and the second grid, so we'll flip the four on the big grid first and see what numbers you have...

Interesting call to make with that set! Three lower numbers 15, 18 and 24 along with a biggie 66. How would you like to pair those numbers here?

Maximum risk, maximum reward if the prizes come off well here. Prize A is our lowest-value prize, that spin bike, ascending up to Prize I which is our luxury garden pod...


First up, number 3...

ImageImageImageImageImage

That gives you 270 lots of this £3,999 77" OLED TV! The outcome of that sum is £1,079,730! Hopefully your next one is nice and chunky...




ImageImageImageImageImage

Our second smallest prize is this £1,499 Star Wars chess set, but you're getting 1584 of them for a total of £2,374,416! When we total that together with your TVs it comes to £3,454,146 - but then we kick that up with your 60% Booster and it gives you a final total of £5,526,634 which takes you up to £31,126,634! Thanks very much for playing, and we'll see you in Super Round 1! :D
