Monopoly Millionaires’ Club Debuts February 7th

Billy Gardell hosts the lottery show based on the board game.


Monopoly is coming back to the small screen. The new syndicated game show, Monopoly Millionaires’ Club, is set to debut February 7th and 8th in syndication. Entertainment Weekly broke the news this evening.

Each episode of Monopoly Millionaires’ Club sees five members of the audience drawn at random to play games based on the classic board game for up to $100,000. At the end of the show every contestant chooses to keep their winnings or risk it all for a chance at $1,000,000.

The show features one of the largest LED floors on TV, requiring over 8,500 channels of control and more than 473,000 individual LEDs. Take a look at the set below, courtesy Entertainment Weekly. Scott St. John, who is behind Celebrity Name Game and Deal or No Deal, executive produces.

The game has under unknown conditions recently as the was suspended after just ten drawings due to low ticket sales. The taped shows will still air but the show’s future remains uncertain as the future of the lottery game is set to be determined.

    Mike Reilly wasn’t available?

  • Brandon Taylor

    Thankfully, no. Apparently he just wasn’t game show host material on the original “Monopoly” — which was just played completely wrong. The format just plain bombed, and overall it just wasn’t too entertaining to any but the most diehard of game show fans. I did find the “Once Around the Board” endgame interesting, though… But Reilly at times looked kinda lost, like this was a set that was completely alien to him, and he’d rather be somewhere else.

    Here’s hoping this Billy Gardell character, whoever he is, can do better — honestly, here’s hoping this incarnation is much better than its predecessor.

    The set looks promising, and with the tweeted news that Todd Newton is joining Billy Gardell (of “Mike and Molly” fame), a proven solid host will guide the rookie through some of the pitfalls. Would like to see the game continue, despite what happens with the affiliated lottery draws…
