Monopoly Millionaires’ Club has gone bankrupt. According to Broadcasting & Cable, the syndicated game show will not be renewed for a third season and has been effectively cancelled.
The last episode will air during the weekend of April 30th.
Hosted by Billy Gardelll, the lottery game show features contestants playing a series of games based on the popular Hasbro board game Monopoly. The series debuted in March 2015, with an hour-long program that was later cut down to a half hour in the second season.
A few weeks ago, Buzzer Blog reported that the syndicated series could be moving to a daily format. However, Scientific Games (who produce the show) has decided not to renew it. It seems the show’s demise is linked to the popularity and bigger gains from other lotteries like Powerball and Mega Millions.
A spokesperson from the show said Monopoly Millionaires’ Club “minted more millionaires in a shorter period of time than any other game show in history.”
