Storyline

Two contestants answer questions to earn the right to toss a pair of oversized dice. Using the numbers that are rolled, the contestants must completely clear a board containing the integers 1 through 9. The contestants are awarded a prize for every integer they are able to erase from the board, and clearing them all qualifies the contestant for the grand prize.

The only show to offer a $10,000 antique fishbowl.
2 July 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The fishbowl that I mentioned above was one of the prizes offered on the infamous series finale of the late 1970s version of High Rollers. I say "infamous" because it is rumored that Alex Trebek was either drunk or high while making said series finale. Among the zany things Alex said in this episode was "Stayin' alive with the Bee Gees" (most likely referring to a good roll of the dice), "Many moon come...a niner" (most likely referring to a roll of 9 on the dice), "We're gonna add something to it...fish" (referring to the fishbowl), "You lost the fishbowl" (once again referring to the fishbowl), and the classic "Seven-ahhh!!!" (most likely referring to a roll of 7 on the dice).

Overall the show itself was pretty good, but the series finale gives it a kind of cult status.
