Thanks for responding.
Our version of the game has the banker paying the winnings on
the the slot that contains the closest to the correct answer
without going over.
So we weren't sure what to do when
the directions didn't address the off chance someone had the
correct answer -- since the game seems to be designed
for rewarding both the trivia knowledge and the betting strategy
after all the potential answers are on the table.
I would play both. The person with the correct answer gets $300 and the person(s) who voted the next closest lower number gets rewarded too including the person who bet agaisnt himself if he were the next closest lower bet.
