Introducing Game rule of 10 Ka Dum
The Dus Ka Dum Game Show consists of two rounds :
1. Here is the First round Introduction :
In the first round of the play, two contestants need compete against each other in a best three-out-of-five format in which they are asked a ‘Poll Question’ and asked to provide a whole percentage number that most closely approximates the exact survey poll answer for the question. The contestant whose answer will be close to the poll results for 3 out of 5 national survey questions wins the ‘First-Round’. The contestant who loses is then eliminated from the game.
2. Here is the Second round of Play :
The contestant who will win the first round plays the game to win up to Rs. 100,000,000/- (10 Crore) by trying to correctly approximate the survey’s results within a narrowing percentage range for up to four poll questions. In this round, the contestant was given similar questions and placed a range on a scale from 0% to 100% that included the correct answer. (For example, if the answer was 53%, then the contestant’s range must have included 53%.) The size of the range decreased as the money values increased:
- Rs. 10,000 question: 40% range
- Rs. 100,000 question: 30% range
- Rs. 1,000,000 question: 20% range
- Rs. 10,000,000 question: 10% range (answer won’t be shown even if you answer correct)
- Rs. 100,000,000 question: You have to pick a number ( the question is the same one for 100,000,000 (question 4), but you have to pick the number from the range you have selected in previous correct answer)
For the first three poll questions, the correct answer to the question was revealed once the contestant locked-in an answer by pulling down a lever. For the fourth question of Rs.1,00,00,000, the correct answer was revealed only if the contestant’s range missed the question. And if the question was answered correctly, the contestant was then given the chance to win Rs.100,000,000 by picking the exact percentage (rounded to the nearest 1%) out of that 10% range (11 choices in all). In addition, the contestant has the opportunity to consult with his/her designated supporter before deciding whether to lock-in a response at the Rs.100,000,000 prize level.
As with the lower prize levels, the contestant may elect to take the walk-away prize for the Rs.100,000,000 (Ten crore Rupees) prize level, i.e., Rs.1,000,000 and terminate the game before locking in a response. However, if the contestant decides to lock in a response, the response cannot be changed, and the contestant no longer has the option of taking the walk-away prize of Rs.10,000,000. If the contestant locks in a response, the survey result for the poll question is than revealed. If the survey’s result is exactly the same as the contestant’s response, the contestant is than awarded Rs.100,000,000. But, if the survey’s result is not exactly the same as the contestant’s response, the contestant will be awarded Rs.1,000,000.
