Contents

The show returned on HRT1 in September 2019. Tarik Filipović is once again the host of the show. The show air's on Thursdays in the television primetime. Minor changes to the show have been underdone, but there were no bigger changes to the quiz format itself. The "zovi" lifeline has been shortened down to 25 seconds from 30, due to increased availability and faster speed of internet search engines, such as Google. The choice of contestants for "najbrži prst" has been cut down to 6 contestants from original 10. An additional lifeline "tri znalca" (three wise men) has been added in 2020 to substitute "pitaj publiku" (ask the audience) for the rest of the season due to coronavirus situation.

This version is also the second country to adapt the new International Rave graphics which were created by Olga Van Den Brandt.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? is an international television game show franchise of British origin, created by David Briggs, Mike Whitehill and Steven Knight. In its format, currently owned and licensed by Sony Pictures Television, contestants tackle a series of multiple-choice questions to win large cash prizes in a format that twists on many game show genre conventions – only one contestant plays at a time, similar to radio quizzes; contestants are given the question before deciding whether to answer, and have no time limit to answer questions; and the amount offered increases as they tackle questions that become increasingly difficult. The maximum cash prize offered in most versions of the format is an aspirational value in local currency, such as one million pounds in the UK or 75 million rupees in India.
