FOX is about to launch a US version later this month.
In the US version, two contestants will be given $1 million in cash and must work as a team to answer seven quiz questions.
During each round, the contestants must risk their money either all on one answer – if they’re confident – or spread the betting across multiple answers to try and play it safe. Any money they bet on wrong answers disappears through the “money drop.”
After the seven questions are over, the contestants get to keep the money, if there’s any left.
A FOX spokesperson talked up the US version, saying the simplicity is it looks like you should be able to win this game.
“It’s nerve-wracking, more so than any game I’ve seen in last five years. It’s the first game show where every question is dramatic,” he says.
