                   Kaun Banega Crorepati -


The Kaun Banega Crorepati game is created using Visual Basic 6.0.

Kaun Banega Crorepati is a simple game show. You answer a series of questions that could get you as much as Rs 1 crore. Our 3 Lifelines help you along the way

1.      The questions are generated by random choice.

2.      You choose 1 answer from 4 alternatives.

3.      Each correct answer gets you a specific sum of money. The value of each subsequent question increases up to a maximum of Rs 1 crore on the 15th question. Click here for the break up.

4.      You are free to leave the game without answering the question asked. You retain the sum won so far.

5.      An incorrect answer terminates the game. Your winnings fall to the last guarantee point (either Rs. 3,20,000 Rs. 10,000 or 0).

Eg: A contestant failing on Q15 will only win Rs 3,20,000. One failing on Q10 will get only Rs. 10,000. A contestant answering incorrectly before reaching the first guarantee point (Rs. 10,000) will win nothing.


The Lifelines

You will get 3 lifelines during the show.

Lifeline 1 - 50:50. 2 answers are eliminated leaving 1 correct and incorrect answer.

Lifeline 2 - Audience Poll. Each member of the audience gets a keypad with the letters A, B, C, D on it. This corresponds to the 4 answers to your question. When requested, all members of the audience indicate their choice for correct answer within 10 seconds. The results are calculated as a percentage of the audience vote.

Lifeline 3 - Phone-a Friend You are allowed to talk on the telephone to 1 out of 3 pre-arranged friends or relatives and ask their advice on the correct answer. The phone friends do not know the question in advance. They get only 30 seconds to answer you. This includes the time for the relay of the question.

Known Problems
