High Rollers was a game show airing on NBC daytime and in syndication.
Two contestants answer a toss-up question to begin the game. Whoever answers controls two oversized dice--he/she may play them or pass to his/her opponent. The player rolls the dice and whatever combination shows up that player eliminates in any combination on a display of lighted numbers from 0 to 9. The corresponding numbers appeared on a game board which credited the contestants with prizes in three rows. A player wins the game if he/she successfully wipes out all the numbers or the opponent rolls a combination that cannot be eliminated.
The winner of two games vies for $10,000 by trying to eliminate all nine numbers successfully with the dice.
This version ran for two years. It launched a nighttime syndicated edition in fall of 1975 which ran a year. It returned on NBC daytime in 1978 and ran two more years. High Rollers was revived yet again in 1987 for first-run syndication. It lasted a year.
