A Millionaire Activity mimics the television game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" 

Students answer Multiple Choice Questions to achieve the highest score possible. If one question is answered incorrectly, the game is immediately over. 

Because is one of the only Game types to use Multiple Choice Questions, the Millionaire game is useful to drill both higher and lower-order learning in a repetitive manner. It is most effective by using a large bank of questions and allowing students to re-play a large number of times.
