Test your trivia knowledge July 9 and you could become a contestant on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire." The game show, which airs locally on WGN, will audition possible contestants for the upcoming 11th season on July 9 at Rivers Casino Des Plaines.
Participants will take part in one of two early audition sessions in which they will take a timed, multiple choice test. Those sessions are set for 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5 p.m.-7 p.m. Those who pass will be interviewed by one of the show's producers.
The last session will begin at 7 p.m. and will test contestants exclusively for "Movie Week," a specialty series featuring film buffs answering movie-themed trivia. Producers also will audition college students throughout the day to be considered for "College Week."
Auditioners will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis and producers will audition as many people as they can.
People auditioning in Des Plaines must adhere to the rules and regulations of Rivers Casino Des Plaines, which requires patrons to be 21 years of age or older. In addition to the age requirement, participants must also be U.S. residents and pass all other eligibility rules, which can be found on "Millionaire's" website at millionairetv.com.
Auditioners must bring photo identification with them as proof of age and residency.
