A new season of Who Wants to be a Millionaire returns on September 13 and the show is rolling out a new format, with fewer questions that need to be answered in order to win the top prize. The show has generously provided us with a prize to give to one lucky winner. But first, details about the show:
Beginning September 13th, 2010, the new season of Millionaire is going to be a real game-changer! From the very first question, you’ll see more strategy, more unpredictability and more excitement! Plus, we’re introducing a new lifeline, and the road to a million is going to get a bit shorter.
It’s the same great ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’with a few new twists and turns that will add even more risk, reward and fun!
FROM ZERO TO A MILLION IN JUST 14 QUESTIONS!
We’ve made the path to the ultimate game show victory even faster, by eliminating the $50,000 question. With the start of the new season, contestants will have one less hurdle to scale to get to the one million dollar prize!
EVERY QUESTION COUNTS!
Millionaire will now be played in two rounds. Round One, consisting of the first ten questions is where we’ve made some big changes to game play. For those questions, both difficulty and dollar values are now randomized to create greater drama, risk and reward for both contestants and viewers. Now, the first question of the game could be worth as much as $25,000, and quite possibly paired with the easiest question of the day.
There’s an added bonus to these first ten randomized questions — the dollars are cumulative, enabling contestants to make bigger money, faster.
Once a contestant gets past the exciting first round of questions, we’re into Round Two where the ultimate goal remains the same — to take home the million dollar grand prize. First, however, contestants will still face the $100,000, $250,000 and $500,000 questions. With winnings of this magnitude, Millionaire remains the richest game show on television.
Now onto the contest. We’re giving 1 lucky winner a chance to win a $50 cash card and other Millionaire prizes. Here’s the contest rules:
One winner will receive: a $50 cash card and a Millionaire branded Calculator, Mug, Pen and T-shirt.
Contest open only to residents of the continental United States (sorry!)
