The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Lifelines: Just like the real game show on TV you have three lifelines to help you along the way. You may use more than one lifeline on a single question, but each lifeline may only be used one time during the entire game. To use a lifeline, click on any of the three icons located at the top right of the game screen. Your lifelines are:
  • Call-A-Buddy: Ask your friend the question. He or she will give you the answer and % of how sure they are.
  • 50% Chance: This lifeline removes two of the wrong answers.
  • Audience Assistance: Summon the help of the audience.

Richard's Rating: 5 out of 5.

Pro: This is a really cool game. It has everything you could possibly want (except for perhaps, Regis Philbin or Meredith Viera). Fantastic sound effects add to the fun!

Con: Okay, the money isn't real... but the fun sure is! With only 1,470 questions - should you play this game a lot - occasionally you will get a repeat question. Even so, this game is a definite winner!

More Games: If you like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire you may also like to play Who Wants To Win A Million which is a similar but somewhat easier version of Millionaire.

  3. It's a pity there are so many american questions. I enjoy playing, but my local american knowledge is limited eg, question about "well known packaging" of products not available outside the US.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Thanks everyone for your positive comments about this game.

    I do agree with the comment that this game does cater to an American audience. I thought about that when I selected this game. I realized that many of the questions would be difficult for people who live outside the states.

    I do take into consideration those who live outside of the states when I make a game selection. These people represent about 25% of my viewership and I do try to accommodate them as much as possible.

    Still after careful consideration, I felt this game would be well received... and it has. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is to date the most popular game on Richard's Game Reviews. Even the person who wrote the comment was gracious enough to say they still enjoy playing it.

    And, not to sound too 'americanized' but tomorrow is Thanksgiving (a holiday we celebrate in the states.) So, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  6. answer you have for "Who is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom" is wrong, it is NOT Tony Blair.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm hitting "PRESS TO ENTER" and NOTHING IS HAPPENING! DELETE!!! :P

    ReplyDelete
  8. You do not use your mouse to click where it says "PRESS ENTER."

    You have to press your 'Enter' key to make the game begin.

    This should clear up your confusion.

  12. Richard, hello. Please answer this asap. I've a new hp mini notebook which has full compliment of full size keys but NO ENTER key. Tried 'insert' key and just about every other one so how do i play games. Dying to have a go on Millionaire as i love the show on tv, so hope you can solve this dilemma. My full size hp compaq laptop (also new) does not have enter key either. Thanks

  13. To the best of my recollection, without actually going back and checking every single game, you do not need to hit the enter key to play any game on Richard's Game Reviews with the one exception of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. There are many fine games besides Millionaire to play here and you should be able to play them all with no problem.

    That being said, I understand your frustration about not being able to play Millionaire. This is the first time anyone has brought up this particular question. I am certainly no expert when it comes to these matters and I do not pretend to be. I own an hp desktop and have never owned a notebook or laptop.

    My only suggestion would be to try one more time. According to WikiAnswer the enter key on a laptop is usualy half-way down the right hand side of the keyboard. It will have an arrow, with a vertical line on the end of it. It can also be called the return key.
    Let me know if this helps.

  14. Hi Richard, it's Grace re question of no enter key. Thanks for reply and Yesssss, it's the return key, prob the only one i didn't try. Thanks a lot. Having loads of fun but cannot find how to use phone a friend, ask audience or 50/50. Any idea where on game i look for choice button(s) as i have to start again if not know the answer? Thanks a million. Never knew u could have so much fun on a pc.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi Grace

    To use the 50/50, phone a friend, or ask the audience all you need to do is to click on any of the 3 icons located on the upper right corner of the game screen just above where it says question 15 $1 MILLION. And I'll give you a little hint. The best phone a friend is the last one on the list... Larry Stevens, the musician. He always seems to come up with the right answer!

    I hope you enjoy Millionaire. And don't forget to play some of my other games. You may want to try playing Farm Roads, a game I added a few days ago. A great game in my opinion.

    Remember, you can find all of my games by clicking the down arrow where it says Play-A-Game located in my right sidebar. Thanks for your post.

  17. There's a question on this that is incorrect:

    "Which of the following does bear tusks?
    Options:
    Antelopes
    Walruses
    Elephants
    Warthogs"

    It should go; "Which of the following does not bear tusks"

  25. is there any way i can turn the sound effects off?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like this game for good challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  27. In regards to the question is there any way i can turn the sound effects off. Yes, you can. But you have to do this at the very beginning of the game.

    After you click the 'Continue' button, just click the sound button in the upper right corner of the game screen. This changes the sound button to 'No Sound.' Then click 'Enter' to play the game.

    But, be advised. Once you turn the sound off, there is no way to turn it back on again without refreshing the page. I hope this answers your question.

  31. You have an error in your answer key. Which National does contain the colors, red, white and blue. the Answer is the Netherlands, but it shows Hungry (red, white, green) instead.Cheers!

  32. To Anonymous:

    In regards to the question about the flags. I am sure you are correct, or else you would not have posted the information.

    There have been a few other comments pointing out that some of the answers are incorrect. I encourage these types of comments because they are educational. I am also sure it frustrates people when they know they have the right answer only to be told they are wrong.

    There are two reasons why the game has a few incorrect answers. The first reason is that the game developers may have simply not checked their facts carefully enough. The second reason is this game is now four years old, and some of the questions are simply out-dated. I only hope that the people who created this fine game will come up with an updated version at some point.

    I work really hard to find the very best games I can, and bring them to my site for everyone to play. Obviously, I do not create the games and I have no control over the content. I have to bring the games "as is" even if they aren't perfect and have a few minor flaws.

  35. 2/9/2011 A contestant just got screwed. Q: Who was not a member of the Village People? She answered a soldier and so did the audience. Although there is not a fireman which was the answer, she was also correct saying there wasn't a soldier. There is a sailor. A sailor is NOT a soldier. A soldier and a Sailor have two totally different definitions. Look it up Meridith. DUH

  36. Again one of the questions was :Which one does bear tusks, instead of Which one does not bear tusks,neadless to say i got it wrong for picking Elephant ????.
    Aw well never mind.

  38. Good game! Lots of questions that are difficult and get your mind going, although I agree with the other comments about some questions being very hard if you don't live in the States :( It is lots of fun and a bit addictive at times :P Definitely gets your mind active, keeping you alert and gaining cool knowledge at the same time! :D

  40. The question which National flag has the color red, white and blue. The answer was Hungary but i know that Hungary has red, white and green. WHat was that??????????? It suckssssssss...

    ReplyDelete
  41. You are correct. According to Wikipedia "the flag of Hungary (Hungarian: Magyarország zászlaja) is a horizontal tricolour of red, white and green. In this exact form, it has been the official flag of Hungary since October 1, 1957."

    You are the second person to post a comment about that particular question. The previous comment, posted on November 28, 2010, pointed out that the correct answer should have been the Netherlands. (By the way, again according to Wikipedia, the Netherlands has been using the colors of red, white, and blue, in its flag since 1572!) I have no idea why Millionaire would get that wrong. Obviously, they should have programmed the Netherlands as the correct answer and they simply made an error. I understand your frustration. But just remember this. It is only a game!

    I have to admit, that if I had seen this question myself, I would have had no idea of the correct answer. I would have had to use a lifeline, or simply try to guess. I guess the moral of the story is this. If you should encounter this question you better answer 'Hungary', even though we all now know that the correct answer should have been 'the Netherlands'.

  45. 1ST ERROR

    Q: WHICH MAMMAL DOES (NOT) BEAR TUCKS?

    THE WORD NOT WAS MISSING IN THE QUESTION-PLEASE FIX IT!

    THANKS!

  46. To Anonymous,

    In regards to your two August 17th comments. The flag and tusks questions have come up before, and others have pointed out these same errors. There is also one other error I am aware of, and that is the question asking who is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

    I am sorry about these errors. However, please understand that I cannot fix any game errors. I do not own any of the games you see on Richard's Game Reviews. I can only bring you the games as they are. I hope this makes sense to you.

  47. You are still showing Tony Blair as PM here in England!! Too many questions about pop music trivia, and arcane questions about tacky AMERICAN TV shows for my taste. Since we are not actually winning any money it would be nice to feel one has learned something interesting from playing the game and broadening ones knowledge in a satisfying way.
