Be a Contestant On The Millionaire Drop, Channel 4’s New Show

Posted on: May 24th, 2010 by Jason

The Million Pound Drop starts tonight (24th May) at 10pm and runs all this week. Davina McCall will oversee this live game show which gives contestants a chance to win a cool million simply by answering eight questions. At the start of the game the player is given £1million and then has to place the money on the answer.

If they guess right the money falls to the next level and they play on. There are options to spread the cash on different answers to hedge your bets, but that will lose in a loss in some of the money. It’s up to the player to decide how much they wish to risk on each round. The ultimate aim though is to win the million.

The good thing about this programme, which you can play along with online at Channel 4, is that you could become a contestant this week! Look out for drop codes that will appear on the show, via Twitter (@the1mpounddrop) and Facebook and then head to the official Millionaire Drop website to enter the code. If you enter the code at the right time you’ll be given the opportunity to apply to take The Million Pound Drop.

Some compers like the idea of TV gameshows, but getting on them can be a long winded and difficult. That’s not to say this process willbe easy. Currently there are almost 6000 Facebook fans and 1000 Twitter followers and we’d expect that by the end of the show a fair few people will have tried the entry process.

That said it’s worth a try. It’d be great if a Loquax user was picked as a player and even better if they ended up a millionaire.

You can also play a version of the game online at Bet365 Games.
