Kim Milyoner Olmak İster[1] (English translation:Who wants to be a Millionaire) is a Turkish game show based on the original British format of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. The show is hosted by the Turkish actor Kenan Işık. The program was broadcast from August 2, 2011.[citation needed]

The main goal of the game is to win 1.000.000 TL by answering 12 multiple-choice questions correctly. There are four lifelines: Ask the Audience, Phone a Friend, 50/50 and Double Dip. If contestant answers 1st or 2nd question incorrectly, the contestant walks away with absolutely nothing. During the game, the contestant can walk away with the money they earned in the game, thus ending the game. The program was broadcast from August 2011 and it is shown on ATV (Turkey). In this season, the channel eliminated the preliminary Fastest Finger round; contestants immediately take the hot seat.[citation needed]

This version adopts the clock format from the US version. The first two questions each have a 15-second time-limit and contestants then have a 45-second time-limit for each of the next five questions. After answering 7th question correctly, the clock is removed and there is no time-limit to answer the last five questions. If contestant fails to answer during the given time-limit, the contestant would be credited with the wrong answer.
