If you visit Harrow Island and dig another hole even after you’ve dug up 10 treasures, the game warns you not to keep digging. If you dig another hole after that, you lose 100 rupees. If you keep going, you will lose all your rupees. If you dig again even after that, you will be banned from the mini-game. The only way to play again is to apologize and pay 300 rupees.
