BALTIMORE — Who wants to be a millionaire has a new night on WMAR.

You can watch this new celebrity edition of the game show, tonight at 8:00 p.m.

But there is a chance for you to win some money as well.

The same amount of money the stars won for charity will be up for grabs on an app.

There was also a winner from Maryland won last week.

Jason McKenney from Owings Mills won almost $18,000 playing the millionaire app game.

This couldn't have come at a better time.

"Well it's going to be very helpful right now because I lost my job because of this mess. So, it will be very helpful for me and my family. And other than that, I like to travel so when this is calmed down, I’m probably heading straight out to California to see my best friend."

He played against more than 35,000 players.

He said he's been into trivia games for a few years and was excited to be able to participate and win some prize money.
