Banking it transfers the balance at that point into the prize money available to the winner. Then if he/she does indeed get the question wrong they will not have lost anything.

The game begins with a team of nine contestants, who take turns answering general knowledge questions within a time limit to create chains of nine correct answers in a row. At the end of each round, the players then vote one contestant, “the weakest link”, out of the game.
