Where the original edition of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" offered a top prize of $1 million US, "Who Wants To Be A Super Millionaire" multiplied the grand prize ten-fold. Contestants who correctly answered 15 random general knowledge questions of increasing difficulty could now win $10 million. Of course, the questions were much more difficult, but there was a twist - contestants who successfully answered the first ten questions correctly were given two new "lifelines" to help them out. In addition to the classic "Phone a Friend", "Ask the Audience" and "50:50" lifelines, contestants could ask a panel of "Three Wise Men" (in some cases, women) for their advice, and "Double Dip" into a question, getting a second chance to answer a question they got wrong (however, "Double Dip" required a contestant to commit to answering the question). (Possible Spoiler) The most money given away on the show to date was $1 million US on the second episode in February 2004.
