The first million dollar prize was awarded to Jessica Robinson during the episode airing September 1, 2008. She was playing during the Million Dollar Mission, with 5 million dollar cases. However, she eliminated the first 4 rather quickly, making most of the decisions just as difficult as they normally are. The final 3 amounts on the board were $100,000, $200,000, and $1,000,000. She turned down a final bank offer of $561,000 and decided to keep her case, number 4, to win the million. It was revealed after the show that there will be one more million dollar winner during the fourth season.
