(I decided to multiply by 13 the prizes)

Al Raposas - 2^(1-1) = 1CC * 2 = 2CC * 13 = 26CC
kmm225 - 2^(1-1) = 1CC * 2 = 2CC * 13 = 26CC
svetljo stefanov - 2^(3-1) = 4CC * 13 = 52CC
Boy Pick Up - 2^(3-1) = 4CC * 2 = 8CC * 13 = 104CC
kadayao - 2^(4-1) = 8CC * 2 = 16CC * 13 = 208CC

Still Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
