Play Mucho Dinero

Nov 11, 2003 2:33 AM

The Las Vegas Hilton is currently in the midst of "Mucho Dinero," the game show in which contestants can multiply their cash winnings, Nov. 17 through Dec. 14.

Each night, five contestants are selected to compete in a two minute slot tournament to determine placement in Mucho Dinero.

The first place winner from the slot tournament will have a chance to play three games to increase his or her cash prize. The remaining four slot tournament participants will win $50 cash and dinner for two at the Las Vegas Hilton’s Margarita­­Grille Mexican restaurant.

At the first level, the contestant spends 45 seconds in a cash cube with the chance to grab as much cash as possible within the allotted time period.

The contestant may either keep the winnings or chance his luck to earn Mucho Dinero by spinning a wheel to multiply the cash amount. If the contestant hits a multiplier on the wheel (i.e. 2x, 3x, 6x) and not a "Lose All," his cash multiplies and he may chance his luck by playing the keno popper to again increase his cash prize.

At any time the full amount can be lost if a "Lose All" ball appears or the contestant may win thousands of dollars if he makes it through all three levels of Mucho Dinero.
