Experts Reveal Which UK Gameshow Is The Easiest To Win Following Record-Breaking £75K Prize On The Chase Won
Following the Record-Breaking win on The Chase, in which a 20 year old took home the biggest solo prize, New data carried out by online betting experts OLBG has revealed the TV game shows you can easily enter and win big on - plus, juicy expert tips on how.
Tipping Point is the game show you’re most likely to win with a 58% chance of winning
The study found you have the highest chance of winning on Tipping Point with a 58.5% chance of taking home a cash prize. All questions consist of general knowledge, so it really is a test to your own ability, or your ability to revise! However, only two winners won the double jackpot of £20,000, most recently in May 2021 by a retired gardener. It was first won in March 2020.
You have the second highest chance of taking home a cash prize in The Chase with a 25.35% chance of winning. The highest amount to ever be won was a huge £70,000 as a solo player and £100,000 as a team! The great thing about The Chase is you can play tactically by choosing your Chaser, with Shaun being the easiest one to beat!
Which game show has the largest jackpot?
Although the odds may not be in your favour to win these shows overall, you are more likely to become a millionaire!
Jeopardy could make you the richest of all game shows! Although it only has a 0.53% win rate, you could walk away with a life changing £2,472,942 million pounds!!
Who doesn’t want to be a millionaire? In second place is the classic TV game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire, where you have the potential to win a cool £1,000,000. With a 7.93% win rate, becoming a millionaire is not as easy as it looks. Garden designer Keppel was the first person to win £1million on the show in 2000. She later joined the team of trivia experts on BBC quiz show Eggheads.
In third place is The Chase, where contestants have to complete against their chosen chaser for the chance to win the £250,000 cash prize! With a win rate 6.98%, the chances of you winning that small fortune is low. The only person to compete in the final round (and win) on The Cube was Mo Farah, Olympic winning long-distance runner. The athlete competed in a 2012 charity special and donated the grand prize.
The most popular TV game shows
The most popular TV game shows in the UK is The Chase with 135,000 UK monthly searches, closely followed by Countdown with 110,000 searches and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire with 74,000 searches.

When looking at UK TV viewings, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire steals the show - their first episode with Jeremy Clarkson in 2018 gained 5.1 million views. This is then followed by The Chase with 2,788,000 viewers looking at an episode from 6th July 2021. The third most-watched is Tipping Point which gained 1,675,000 views from the same date.
