Contestants had to answer seven true/false questions, each increasing in difficulty. Winners would make an attempt for a larger jackpot at the end of the show.
In 1948, due to a format change, contestants now had to answer four or five questions (usually about someone in the news) to win a grand prize of $2,500.
