The sad thing though, not in real life. I’m not sure if Who Wants To Be a Millionaire is much of a show from where you may be reading this from, but here (Australia/NZ), it’s quite popular. Ever since just over a month ago Rob Fulton, a graphics operator, won a million dollars (first one in the history of the AUS/NZ gameshow to do this), it’s been booming. I recently went to see what the "oh, I play millionaire online" fuss was about and after four hours of intense "sorry, the right answer was….." messages, I finally did it.
Ok, ok, so I did a few things a that wouldn’t be encouraged in the rules. First of all, here’s a great tip for all you online players: keep Answers.com open at all times — the answer can be obtained to almost any question from there by using some good keywording skills and a bit of brains. Second, if you don’t have an IQ or general knowledge of at least 150, then don’t bother playing an online game which doesn’t repeat the questions (such as the U.S. online version). Of course, when or if you sit on the actual real life seat playing for money, you don’t get this option but let’s admit it, the online versions are for losers like us. If you’re looking to play the version I did, go here, register for a NineMSN account and play the practice version (unless you’re looking to play for real prizes).
