At the start of the show, a pair of contestants is given one million pesos. To keep the money, they have to answer eight questions correctly.

The game is played on the "Million Peso Money Drop", a device with four trapdoors, where the answers to the question are displayed. For each question, contestants have to physically move their one million pesos onto the trapdoor that they believe is the right answer.

If they answer correctly, the trapdoor does not open and their money is safe. If their answer is wrong, contestants see their money literally drop into the trapdoor.
