Another tough call, but I'll take the gamble. Redraw from square 15.

... a 10, giving you £600k instead unfortunately, but if you want to use your second and last power up, you can Reciprocate that to 10/6? If you want to save it, pick the next number to start off your second fraction.

That mops that up, and it means you bank £3,873,017 from this! We kick that up by 125% thanks to your Booster and it becomes a rather nice £8,714,289 taking you to £428,224,857 as we enter Game 2...

... which is for a massive £50 million - it's PUNCH A BUNCH!

A big grid, and a chance of winning up to £50,000,000! You'll be selecting no more than four of those squares though, 45 of which are stuffed with cash from £100,000 up to £25,000,000. 4 of the 20 amounts that are less than a million hide a Hidden Square, too! Find any of the five Bombs at any stage, and you'll lose everything you've gained. However, you'll get an option to bail after each decision.

Lots to be made here, so let's hope you can! First square when you're ready.

Sorry; thought I had only one minigame and we were starting Stephen's.

Start with 12.

Not to worry! Let's get 12 on the board...

Well ok then... :lol: :cry: Let's just see what the full grid had in store...

And because it doesn't count for anything, I can tell you your Hidden Squares (Bomb Finder, Defuse, Fold, Copy/Paste) were hiding behind 2, 14, 25 and 45 respectively! As such, it's unfortunately a dud game for you, but we'll see you primed and ready for SR10! :D

We have Stephen's minigames before we get to the next head-to-head, and it's BISCUIT RISK-IT first!


In this game, you will be picking from a grid where every non-Bomb square is worth the value of a million packs of biscuits, and there might even be a hidden square tucked in as well. Your choice of biscuit determines the size of the grid and the number of Bombs and hidden squares on it - higher-value biscuits come with more dangerous grids, but of course you'll get more money with each selection. Three packs have been selected for you at random from our selection of eight courtesy of Waitrose and Partners...

  • 250g Simmers Abernethy Scottish biscuits: 70p; 1 bomb, 4 hidden, 25 squares
  • 230g Fox's Ginger Crunch Creams; £1.05; 1 bomb, 2 hidden, 20 squares
  • 125g Waitrose Belgian triple chocolate biscuits; £2.49; 3 bombs, 3 hidden, 20 squares

Which board takes your fancy today?

I'm going to try and build up my hidden square stash, so I'll go for the Simmers Abernethy Scottish biscuits.

We want five perfect Abernethy Scotish biscuits to start please...

For what it's worth, 6, 7, 8 were your hiddens and the other was a Revive in 23 which would've been your second! Not to worry, nothing picked up there but we've another game yet...

Your second minigame is a vintage one, it's HIGH STAKES!


In just a few moments we'll see rows of seven consecutive numbers in front of us. There's a Bomb on each of these rows, and all you need to do is avoid it to move forward. On the top row, you only need to reveal one safe square. If it's safe, you're on £500,000. On the next row, you need to find two safe squares, and that will take you up to £1,000,000. Three on the next one will take you up to £3,000,000. Four on the one after it will take you to £7,500,000. Five on the penultimate row takes you to a whopping £15,000,000 and if you find six safe squares on the bottom row, you win the jackpot of £50,000,000!

That may sound quite difficult to do, but you do have the aid of a Dodge. This will allow you to make one less selection on a row to proceed. There is also an extra Dodge on each of the first four levels, so find them to give you the best shot at that jackpot.

Let's load up that first row for half a million...

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

So then, which of those seven would you like to go for? You could Dodge if you want to step up guaranteed of course!

Let's see if we're safe on 22...



ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

That'll do for £500k! Now let's try step up again...

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

You can make two selections off that row or you can employ your Dodge and just select one, it's up to you!

Nothing explosive please...



ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

EXCELLENT, and you've picked up a second Dodge! That could come in wonderfully handy to help you get towards that jackpot! For now, we've got to level up to £3m...

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

You've to pick three of those, unless you want to employ one or both of your held Dodges at this stage...?
