Stripped winnings

Some players had answered the top prize question correctly, but did not actually win the prize because of ineligibility, legal issues, or elimination from a contest.

Edition Name of player Date Notes
Bulgaria Koi iska da stane bogat Asen Kisimov[216] June 13, 2002 His daughter, Iskra Angelova, worked for Nova TV, which airs the show, a violation of the eligibility requirements, and was forced to return the prize money. Employees of the local broadcaster, production company or distributor, sponsors, and Sony (which owns the franchise) are not eligible to participate in the show. As Angelov is the only Bulgarian to answer the final question correctly, no one in this version actually won the top prize.
Thailand เกมเศรษฐี Lertlak Panchanawaporn[217][218] March 22, 2002 A computer error led the player to being fed all the right answers. The cable feeding the player the answers on the computer screen was supposed to be hooked up to the presenter's computer. The player had noticed that the right answers were constantly highlighted on her computer screen and won the million this way. The show's producers took the million away from the player, but she was allowed to play again, but won only 25,000 baht (answered five questions).
United Kingdom Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Charles Ingram April 21, 2003 He was accused of cheating by using different coughing patterns from fellow contestant Tecwen Whittock while playing the game. He was found guilty of fraud in the 2001 scandal and was stripped of his winnings. The episode was originally scheduled to air September 18, 2001 but did not actually air until April 21, 2003. Was part of the final original episode.
