The Seven-devised show will introduce a new $300,000 ‘Safety Net’ jackpot in addition to its current $75,000 safe level. With $300,000 in their pocket, contestants risk nothing in playing on for $500,000.
There will also be a new jackpot level of $750,000 which puts the million dollars at a further distance but players will put less money on the line should they dare to continue.
Host Simon Reeve, said, “This is a big win for contestants and for viewers at home.
“We can expect to witness even more adrenalin-charged moments and life-changing wins than ever before,”
Million Dollar Minute has been closing the gap against Nine’s Hot Seat, particularly in recent weeks.
