Monopoly adds a new Millionaire to the Club

Cory Anotado

With just 3 episodes under its belt, the Monopoly Millionaires’ Club crowns its newest Millionaire.


Christopher Jackson of Atlanta made it to the final round of “MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES CLUB,” where he landed on GO to collect the $1 million dollar grand prize (along with having his electric bills paid for a year).

Having almost won his main game, Block Party, with $48,000, Jackson played the Advance to Go round and with the help of a double-6 12, and an on-the-money (no pun intended) final roll, Christopher Jackson joins the 1% with an amazing win. Watch the clip above.

Based on Hasbro’s iconic MONOPOLY brand, this groundbreaking show is a companion to the multi-state lottery game of the same name. Hosted by popular comedian and actor Billy Gardell, the show is taped in front of a live studio audience comprised of lottery game winners who have won a trip to Las Vegas to participate in a taping, and who will have the chance to win $1 million. Check PlayMMC.com or the Monopoly Millionaires’ Club YouTube page to watch.

    Would you say the show’s mention of choosing who goes for the Million is okay, or do you have a better idea?

    For the record, my idea is, starting from the lowest to highest, each of the winners would roll a pair of dice, with the highest roll playing for the Million, and the others keeping whatever they won earlier. In the event of a tie, the randomizer would determine who went for the Million (I initially had them roll until the tie was broken, but then I decided against it due to potential time constraints).

    On the surface, it feels OK. Because at the end of the selection process, the person who risks the most is playing for a million dollars. That’s fine.

    Is it fair? Probably not. You have to remember that this audience is _LOADED_ with gamblers. People who are OK playing the lottery and taking more risks than the average person because they’re gamblers. So, if you’ve noticed, it’s going to be rare to have someone say “No, I don’t want to risk money to make more money.” It’s a bit of a waste to really do it this way, or the opposite (LMaD Big Deal of the Day way, most risk asks first).

    The fairest way to do it is to put all their tokens on ping pong balls, put them in a lottery ball hopper and the first one to pop out wins the game.

    But they’ve gotta make drama, and it’s really a shockingly-not-so-important part of the proceedings, so they might as well make it *look* like there’s a lot of risk.

    Oooh, oooh, humour me for a second. Each player opts to risk their money or walk, as they do now. Then, those who choose to risk get one ball in the hopper for each $1,000 they earned in their game. That way the lesser-winning players still get a shot, albeit maybe a small one.

    But, what they’ve got isn’t broken. It doesn’t need to be complicated.
