Haluatko miljonääriksi? (literally: Do you want to become a millionaire?) is the Finnish version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. The version has been aired on three occasions: 1999–2005 on Nelonen (hosted by Lasse Lehtinen), 2005–2007 on MTV3 (hosted by Ville Klinga), and since 2016 on Nelonen (hosted by Jaajo Linnonmaa). The version is spoken in Finnish.

No one has won the top prize in the version. The biggest win was in 2002, when a contestant, an 18-year-old student Markku Rikola, won €70,000 while the biggest prize was €200,000 (resigned of answering on the 14th question).

Lifelines Edit

There are three lifelines (oljenkorsi in Finnish) available to all contestants.

  • 50/50: The computer eliminates two incorrect answers, leaving one incorrect answer and the correct answer.
  • Kilauta kaverille (Phone-a-Friend): The contestant calls one of up to three friends who provided their phone numbers in advance. The contestant has 30 seconds to read the question and answer choices to the friend who then has the remaining time to offer input.
  • Kysy katsomolta (Ask the Audience, 1999–2007): Audience members use touch pads to designate what they believe the correct answer to be. The audience choosing each specific option is displayed to the contestant.
  • Kysy yleisöltä (Ask 3 of the Audience, 2016–): When used, audience members who think they know the answer stand up, and the contestant must pick three of them by looks only, and then discuss with them about the question. The contestant may or may not choose any answer after that. If the contestant chooses the suggested answer and it proves to be correct, each audience member who got it correct will receive a gift card of Scandic Hotels (in the 2016 spring season) or a €99 gift card of the telecommunications company DNA (in the 2016 autumn season).
