Dialing for Dollars

This was strictly a domestically franchised format created in 1939 by Horner Todd as a local radio program. The format was transferred to television and franchised to stations across the United States in the 1950s. As broadcast syndication grew to replace local franchises, the franchise was discontinued in most markets by 1978 and is no longer aired, though some programs trace their history to the franchise and still use some elements.

Like the German show, its first episodes were shot in Hilversummarker (Netherlandsmarker). Since the German set became finished (in September 2000) the show uses the Cologne (Germany) set, which may cause problems for contestants who would like to ask the audience if the question happens to be about Austrian trivia. Austrian television ORF once thought about building an own set in Vienna, but never realized it, because they thought it was too expensive just for the number of shows ORF usually produces per year.

Before the switch to the euro, the money tree was the amounts used on the UK version, but in schillings, and multiplied by ten.

Since autumn 2007 each contestant can choose whether he plays the traditional or a new second variant. In this variant the second "save haven" (at €15,000) is disabled, therefore the contestant gets a fourth lifeline which is the same as the Double Dip lifeline on Who Wants to Be a Super Millionaire, though it can be used from the first question on. Further this variant extends the "Phone-a-friend" lifeline, so that he can choose between five friends instead of three.

September, 2000 Who Wants to Be A Millionaire: Canadian Edition Pamela Wallin CTV 1,000,000 Canadian dollars US $940,000 (€660,000)
CTV network aired the United States (primetime) version for most of its run. But the Canadian Edition was taped on the ABC set in New Yorkmarker. A Canadian audience was flown to the city for the shows, so the contestants could ask the audience for help on the Canadian-themed questions. Following the airing of the two specials, CTV did announce that additional episodes of the Canadian Edition would be produced in Toronto, but they never came to fruition as the US ratings took a huge downfall. The syndicated American version can be seen in Canada on local Citytv or A-Channel stations, depending on region, in the evening, as well as through American channel feeds. It is also shown on ASN during the daytime.

Since autumn 2007 each contestant can choose whether to play the traditional or a new second variant. In the new variant the second "save haven" (at € 16,000) is disabled, therefore the contestant gets a fourth lifeline, which allows him to directly ask one person in the audience to help. Further this variant extends the "Phone-a-friend" lifeline. By this he can either phone one of three friends of him as usual, or one randomly called person within a German city and/or gender of his choice.

The first series debuted on April 29, 2001, and was popular enough for a second series to begin airing on July 22, 2002. The first millionaire was the team with famous composer Wong Jim and actress Fung Po Po during a special celebrity episode dedicated for charities where the winnings of each celebrity is donated to a different charity of their own choices. The Hong Kong-produced version is also shown in China, and it therefore had to pass Chinese government censors. The programme generated high enough ratings that at one point, the channel was showing fresh episodes every day of the week. Asia Television, the broadcasting network, was swamped with commercials during the hour the programme aired.

After one year break the show is back with a new format. The contestants can choose if they would like to play the game in the traditional way (3 lifelines, 2 safe havens) or the new way. If they choose the new one they will have an additional lifeline. They can ask those members of the audience who claim they know the correct answer or they can answer to a question twice. If the first is wrong they can choose again from the remaining three. But if they choose this way the second safe haven (at 1.500.000 million Ft) will be no longer available.

The rules are the same as the original. Notably, while the show is referred to as Quiz Millionaire, the logo of the show still says "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?," although the logo has yen symbols on it instead of pound or dollar symbols. Presenter Mino Monta uses the English phrases from the original show, such as "Fainaru ansah" (Final Answer?) in the quiz. Interestingly enough, the Phone-a-Friend lifeline is also done differently—four supporters of the contestant are off-stage, and when the contestant picks that lifeline, they are the ones who hear the question and four possible answers (therefore, there is no "Phone-a-Friend" list that most other versions' contestants use). They are also there to split up the cash prizes of ¥2,500,000, ¥5,000,000, ¥7,500,000, and the grand prize of ¥10,000,000 among the contestant if the contestant leaves with any of these prizes (as it is illegal in Japan for a game show to give away a cash prize of more than ¥2,000,000 to one contestant alone).
