The four contestants bid in order from right to left, and must bid as close as they can to the actual retail price without going over. Contestants bid in thousand or million dongs but no hundred dongs and below (as the retail prices are rounded off to the nearest thousand dong) and may not bid the same amount as any player bid previously for that prize.
