One round of shooting should be complete within 2 minutes.

Winner of the first round gets Rs 80 for every Re 1 bet while the winner of the second round will get Rs 60 for every Re 1 bet. The participant who manages to guess numbers for both the rounds correctly is known as a forecast. If a person scores a forecast, he/she gets Rs 4,000 for every Re 1 bet.
