Best Answer

Only the player who wins keeps their winnings. The second place contestant gets $2,000, and the third place contestant gets $1,000. On the Art Fleming versions, all players kept their winnings regardless of outcome, which was changed on the current version of the show to only the first place contestant doing so.
