Maybe it is because I am not very good at the mini games, but I have yet to receive anything. Not even 1 gold. Is this a glitch or is there a minimum score to reach before you receive a prize?
If it is a minimum score required, I really think that that should be referenced somewhere so that you would know what is going on.
It seems as though the minimum score to get a prize (other than a potion refill) is 10k points. For some gold, I think it's a little less. I don't know officially, but this is just based on my experience trying out all the games. I think you get some small amount of gold at 5k points.
