There are three levels and during each level players select a saving goal and are given a new piggy bank to keep their money in. Once they have more than one piggy bank they can transfer some of their savings into other banks to take advantage of the interest rates on each bank. The amount of interest they earn on each bank varies but is frequently reported in a newspaper that pops up called "The General Interest".

Players are also given opportunities to purchase items in the store. However the shop keeper will also give participants chances to win store items by correctly answering questions.
