Storyline

An Australian version of the American TV show of the same name. In this quiz/game show, contestants had to answer relatively simple questions on general knowledge categories. Correct answers earned the contestants a few dollars. The show's gimmick was that the contestants could then exchange some of their money for expensive prizes which would be offered at extreme discounts. The contestant who finished the show with the most cash could then return to compete in the next show. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Fun show for an evening...
8 December 2002 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Well, I am not a huge fan of game shows, but I must say, this show is actually fun to watch. The way the guests purchase the prizes with their winnings, the slot machines, and working out who will win the big time is fun for the family. Give it a go one night.
