Gambling Show Red Or Black? Creates First Millionaire
ITV’ new prime time gambling show Red or Black? created a millionaire winner in its first show on Saturday night when bricklayer Nathan Hageman picked red in the final round.
The new high-budget gambling show is the idea of Simon Cowell and with an estimated budget of GB£7 million is the most expensive TV game show in UK history.
The show will air every night for a week, giving 1,000 people who made it through the preliminary rounds earlier in the summer the chance to win a million. The show is hosted by Ant and Dec.
Global Betting and Gaming Consultants’ Head of Research Lorien Pilling commented, “For any entrepreneurs working on their own gambling venture, the show has all the ingredients for success from which they should learn.”
“It is based on a proven gambling idea that is simple to understand. Even if people have never played roulette, choosing red of black couldn’t be easier.”
“The game also has a life changing top prize and having a prime time slot on a major terrestrial television channel is the kind of exposure needed to make a new game a success. Jackpotjoy has also launched an exclusive Red or Black? online slot game with a progressive jackpot, so viewers can feel they are part of the action.”
