- TRIVIA -


Based on the long running Channel 4 game show of the same name, as hosted by Richard O' Brien of Rocky Horror Show fame.


- TIPS AND TRICKS -


Although the game adjusts its difficulty to attempt to key payouts to a certain percentage of takings, the end game is always possible, as there is a minimum of 51 gold tokens in the Dome. Usually, if the game doesn't want to pay out, the minigames are easier, so you should be able to earn enough time to pick your way through the tokens and win.
