The second round was played in the same fashion, with four categories. The object in this round was to fill in the center line of the card, needing five right answers to do it. Also, at the start of this round, each player was given a Trump card. When a player gave a right answer, s/he had the opportunity to use the Trump card against an opponent, stopping his/her progress and imposing a half-second penalty on his/her buzzer. A right answer neutralized the Trump card. The first player to fill in the center line won $1500.
The final round was a speed round, with the players trying to fill in all the remaining squares on his/her card. The first player to do so won $3000 and advanced to the bonus round.

The contestant was presented another Bingo card, this time with 25 spaces. The player had 45 seconds to get five squares in a row across, down, or diagonally. The player would pick a number from 1 to 25 and host Cefalo asked a question. A right answer claimed the square, a wrong answer or a pass blocked it out. Before the round, the player drew from a deck of cards to claim one free square, two if s/he managed to hold on to his/her Trump Card in the front game. Getting 5 in a row won $10,000.
