Double the Dollars

Name Space:

Page Type:
Trope
A staple of Game Shows. After completing round one, the host will usually announce that round two is exactly the same, only all the rewards and penalties are multiplied by two. Often, the associated tasks are more difficult than in the previous round, but not always.

Compare Golden Snitch, for when the dollars are more than doubled.

    Street Smarts: Correct answers in the first round are worth $100, in the 2nd $200, and the third $300.

    Also, on Family Feud it's points that are doubled, not dollars.

    On Who Wants To Be A Millionaire the questions start at £100, increase by £100 each until it reaches the first milestone of £1000 and then keep doubling until they reach the higher numbers where it's averaged out to round figures (which then double until it reaches £1,000,000).

    ^ Not the same. That's a prize payout ladder, not a gameplay round.

    ^ Not really, it's not related to Money Multiplier.
