The hit 90's TV show "Hoosier Millionaire" is back for a limited time and the family game show was held at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.

The show is being held in 6 different Hoosier cities which are leading up to the live, televised, million dollar grand finale.

Hundreds of people came to watch the show, many of which brought their non-winning scratch-off ticket for a chance to be one of the six contestants.

WFFT's Dan Ball was lucky enough to emcee the event, along with all the familiar faces and voices from the original show like Mark, Barbara, Tony, and newcomer to the daily drawings, Shazay.

"For many Hoosiers, it brings back fond memories of what they did on Saturday night with family.  They gathered around the TV, they watched millionaires being made over and over again, and so it brings back that nostalgia and that good feeling that people had for the Hoosier Millionaire Show."

There are 3 more local game shows taking place around the state before the grand finale of Hoosier Millionaire will be held in mid-August at the Indianapolis State Fair.

If you'd like your shot to make it onto one of the shows, or to see old episodes of the Hoosier Millionaire Show go to hoosierlottery.com.

The big winner from the show in Fort Wayne will now advance on to the grand finale in August who was Rick Rhodes from Kokomo.  He walked away with $13,500 dollars and will now have a shot at the million dollars at the State Fair.
