Scientific Games Corporation and participating state lotteries tapped comedian and actor Billy Gardell to host the forthcoming, one-hour, weekly syndicated game show based on the iconic MONOPOLY® brand. The combination of a multi-state premium lottery and a national television game show is a first for both the lottery and television industries.
“Billy has incredible comedic talents and he is also a huge fan of games and MONOPOLY in particular. He'll introduce this new game show to America and help us create more and more millionaires,” said Steve Saferin, president of properties group and chief creative officer for Scientific Games.
"I love MONOPOLY! I've played this game with friends and family since 1979,” said Gardell. “Hosting a big game show is a bucket list level type of job for me. I've always had a big time game show as one of my goals, and to have the opportunity to be a part of MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB is a real honor. It's an iconic game that resonates with everyone, and I want to see someone win one million dollars!”
