The player whose prize has the highest total value then has the option to keep his or her prize or become the participant in the "Pirates Plunder" final stage of the game. If they opt not to go for the "Pirates Plunder," the choice then goes to the player with the next highest value prize and so on until one player agrees to go for it all, or all players decline.
If a player opts to play "Pirates Plunder," he or she surrenders their current winnings and selects one of three final treasure chests on the stage, winning the contents within. This is where the entertainment center might be sitting in a chest next to bubble gum. It's feast or famine.
Now the 200 audience members with the bonus numbers have a chance. Five of these numbers are drawn at various times throughout each show with each holder given his or her choice-in order selected-of one of six treasure chests on stage. Each of these five winners gets to keep what is held in the treasure chest they select.
