Meaning of $1^

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for the meaning of this expression, as I don't understand it quite clearly : $1^

What do you think it could be?

I thought either:
- match lines starting with argument 1 but it should be ^$1
- turn line around : word becomes drow


Thanks in advance for your help!

Must be something else. But have no idea.
In what context did you find it?

It's actually... a game... it's a clue on a website, with a picture of an empty scoreboard juste above.

Perhaps "Cash up", "Buck up" or "Top dollar"

Would you care to post a link so we can see it, or is it subscription only?
