Hosted by actor-comedian Howie Mandel, NBC brings the high stakes international hit game show to American audiences. A contestant must choose from 26 sealed briefcases containing a marker for various amounts of cash from one penny to $1 million. The player then eliminates the remaining 25 cases one by one. The chosen ones are opened and the amount of money inside revealed. After several cases are opened, the player is tempted by the banker to accept a cash offer in exchange for not continuing the game and possibly winning more money.
