Syndicated game show Monopoly Millionaires’ Club is back on Sept. 12 with a new format.

The game show has been reconfigured from an hour into a half hour format, which producers say makes it more “flexible” for TV stations. Every episode features three contestants playing one of eight signature games for the chance to win up to $100,000. After that, one contestant risks their winnings to advance to a final round for a chance at $1 million in cash and prizes.

Billy Gardell (Mike & Molly) is back as host, along with co-host Todd Newton (Family Game Night). The show is taped in Las Vegas next to Bally’s Las Vegas. Monopoly Millionaires’ Club is a companion to state lottery games of the same name; lottery players make up the audience, with contestants picked at random to compete in various games.

In Season 1, Monopoly Millionaires’ Club awarded two $1 million prizes, to lottery players from Georgia and Rhode Island.
