  • Netflix has announced a reality game show based on Squid Game.
  • The show will see 456 contestants compete for the top prize of $4.56 million.
  • You can already bet on the nationality of the winning contestant.

Less than 12 months ago, Squid Game was released worldwide. Fast-forward to today – the South Korean survival drama is Netflix’s most-watched series.

Although a second season has been announced, we will have to wait a couple of years for the follow-up. In the meantime, fans of Squid Game have the chance to take part in a real-life version of the show.

Netflix has announced that Squid Game: The Challenge will air on its platform in 2023. The competition will see 456 contestants take on a series of challenges, with a giant jackpot of $4.56 million going to the winner.

Thanks to the best entertainment betting sites, you can already wager on the show. Let’s see what the bookmakers have to offer.

Odds for Squid Game: The Challenge – Country of Winning Contestant

United States+250
South Korea+500
United Kingdom+1000
New Zealand+2500

As you can see, the bookies favor an American to win Squid Game: The Challenge. The TV show was – and still is – hugely popular in the United States.

Given that Squid Game is a South Korean series, the idea of a South Korean winning the reality game show is not unrealistic. Contestants from Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom are also expected to challenge for the top prize.

Brazil bridges the gap between the favored nations and outsiders, with Spain, France, Germany, Japan, and New Zealand also in the mix.

What is Squid Game: The Challenge?

Before we go any further, let’s get one thing straight – contestants in Squid Game: The Challenge will NOT be killed off!

The TV show is known for its gory scenes, with losing competitors suffering violent deaths. However, the only thing that contestants in the game show will need to worry about is going home empty-handed.

Like the record-breaking series, Squid Game: The Challenge will require its competitors to overcome a series of heart-stopping challenges. Participants will be eliminated throughout the show, leaving a sole survivor at the end.

With both the largest cast and cash prize in reality TV history, Squid Game: The Challenge is set to take Netflix by storm.

Entrants must be aged 21 or over, hold a valid passport for the duration of filming, and not be employed by the All3Media Group and/or Netflix. So, what are you waiting for?

Betting on Squid Game: The Challenge

Of course, predicting the nationality of the winning contestant at this early stage is no easy take. But there is no harm in trying, right?

In October 2021, a study found that one in four Americans had watched Squid Game – and that number will be even higher now. That means more than 80 million Americans have seen Seong Gi-hun and co. go through the tortuous challenges.

Although the reality competition will be very different from the TV series, millions of Americans are already familiar with the idea of the show.

There is also a very good reason why South Korea sits second on the bookies’ odds list. Squid Game is a South Korean show with many famous homegrown actors, so Squid Game: The Challenge is bound to attract plenty of attention there.

Ultimately, it makes sense to wait until the cast is released before wagering on the show. Once we know the line-up, we will be able to make an educated guess – rather than a stab in the dark.
