Bonus Round

CBS Run

Behind each of the nine squares on the board were four X's, four O's and a dragon. Behind the numbers was only one "Tic Tac Dough". For each symbol the player found, \$150 was added to the pot. They could stop at any time and take the cash. Finding the dragon ended the game and lost the money. But, finding "Tic Tac Dough" won the cash and a prize package valued around \$3,000-\$6,000 in prizes.

Now behind the numbers were various amounts of money - \$100, \$150, \$250, \$300, \$400 and \$500. Also, there was a "Tic" a "Tac" [ROAR] and a dragon.

Picking cash kept the bonus round going. The player could stop and take the money or try to accumulate \$1,000 or more. Doing this won a prize package valued around \$3,000-\$6,000. A win could also be achieved by picking "Tic" and "Tac" which brung the pot automatically to \$1,000. Finding a dragon lost all the cash accumulated.

For a very short time in 1984, you had to accumulate \$1,000 exactly. It was a ridiculous concept with the dollar configurations and it was shelved almost immediately in favor of the original \$1,000 or over to win.

For a brief period in the 80's, "Dragon Finder" was played if the bonus round had been won or if a contestant stopped to take the money. Instead of revealing the board to show where the dragon was, Wink would in the studio audience and a lucky audience member picked at random would get to play. The object was to find the dragon from the remaining numbers that have not been revealed; but you were given only one chance. If the audience member found the dragon, that person would win \$250 and a yellow baseball cap that had the dragon printed on the front. If that person was unsuccessful, another audience member would be selected and the value would go down by \$50; making it worth \$200 and so on, until the dragon was found. The game later switched to a 2-player format.
