On the NBC version, host Howie Mandel asked a contestant to choose one of 26 numbered briefcases held by identically-dressed [[{{Fanservice}} sex objec]]-er, models. Each briefcase contained a different amount of money from 1¢ to $1,000,000. The game proceeded as the contestant chose to see the contents of the other briefcases. By process of elimination, the contestant guessed how much money his or her briefcase contained. As briefcases were eliminated, the [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen Banker]] made offers for the contestant's case (more or less the arithmetic mean of the amounts still on the board by the end of the game, less than that early on). Ultimately, the player had to choose between one of the deals offered by the Banker and the value of the case chosen at the beginning. The contestant's time on the show ended when a deal was made, or the contestant stuck it out to the end; in the event a deal was taken, the other cases were opened to see whether the deal made was a good one. Occasional special episodes increased the maximum prize to $2,000,000 or more.

A half-hour syndicated version debuted in September 2008 and essentially cut out all the fluff while adding various elements of the British version (see below), with a top prize of $500,000. Gimmicks were still used, however, and the 22 contestants (and their replacements) only stayed on for one week. Ratings fell sharply during the second year, and the show wrapped production around midseason. The series was put out of its misery again, this time for good, on May 28, 2010; repeats continued to air through September 10 in syndication, and September 28 on Creator/MyNetworkTV.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrOCknrm8vs Donna's game from late 2006.]] Need I say anything more? OK. This happened about a month before Laura Pearce [[spoiler:became the show's first quarter millionaire]]. She played a good game up until her 8 box offer. Her boxes left were £1, £5, £10, £50, £5,000, £10,000, £100,000 and £250,000. She received an offer of £21,000, which she took, on advice of her fiance. The playout to see what would've happened began, and... well... there's a reason this is here.
*** [[For those of you who don't want to watch the video, [[spoiler:She managed to take out everything except for the £100,000 and the £250,000, which would've given her a 5 box offer of £59,000 and a 2 box offer of £170,000. Her box contained the £250,000.]]
