The twist here is that they have to stay alive through the different game levels in order to win the prize money. In season 1, Seong Gi-hun, a divorced father and indebted gambler won the game, but at end of the final episode, instead of going to the U.S. to join his daughter, decided to turn back from boarding the plane and looks hell-bent in putting an to the deadly game.
