From the beginning of this year Croatia ditched the Kuna and adopted the European currency, the euro. There have been, as expected, a few early bumps along the euro road with stores accused of rounding up prices being just one of them. However, a rather unexpected problem, well humorous situation, has occurred with one of the most popular game shows in Croatia, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
The Croatian version of this popular British format show has had to switch currencies just like everyone else. Meaning instead of the chance of winning a million Kuna, contestants now get the chance to win 150,000 euros. In fact, the game show has rounded up, and now the top prize converts to around 1.1 million Kuna, although as the Kuna doesn’t exist then that could be a moot point. Although social media is a buzz with people saying that the quiz show should change its name, and that it is false advertising. The show is broadcast on the HRT 1 program and has been on air since 2002.
