Series 2 Show 3
Ten contestants from around the UK take part in each programme. From the ten qualifiers, one contestant is chosen via a timed question. This contestant plays for the £1,000,000 top prize.
The contestant must answer 15 multiple-choice questions correctly in a row to win the jackpot. The contestant may quit at any time and keep their earnings. For each question, they are shown the question and four possible answers in advance before deciding whether to play on or not. If they do decide to offer an answer, it must be correct to stay in the game.
The money tree. Currently, this contestant is at £500. Answering the next question correctly earns them a guaranteed £1,000 - no matter what happens thereafter.
If at any stage they answer incorrectly, they fall back to the last "guarantee point" - either £1,000 or £32,000 - and their game is over. For example, a contestant failing on question 13 would win £32,000. Answering incorrectly before reaching the first guarantee point (£1,000) loses everything. A new player is picked from the remaining pool of 10. If time runs out on a particular programme, the next programme continues that player's game.
When the money starts getting really serious (£32,000 and over), the host will reach for the appropriate cheque and sign it. Whilst this is mainly used as a theatrical device, the cheques can be cashed in by the contestants for real.
At any point, the contestant may use up one (or more) of their three "lifelines". These are:
* 50:50 option - two of the three incorrect answers are removed (invariably, the two you knew it couldn't be).
* Phone a friend - the contestants may speak to a friend or relative on the phone for 30 seconds to discuss the question.
* Ask the audience - the audience votes with their keypads on their choice of answer.
Each lifeline may only be used once during a contestant's entire game.
