But as always, with the help of his friends. “Los hombres de Paco” are back with a make-over, brought up-to-date, but keeping the old spirit. Determined to adapt to new times, even if they trip up along the way.

“Atrapa’m si pots” delivers the biggest jackpot in the history of À Punt
The daily quiz show organized by València Imagina Televisió (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO) handed over a 48,400 euros jackpot

Last Monday saw “Atrapa’m si pots”, produced by València Imagina Televisió (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO), give away the largest ever jackpot in the network’s history. One of the contestants made it to the fifth rung of the ladder and took home the biggest prize ever on the show. 

The show airs weekdays at 3.15 p.m., Monday through Friday and at 3.05 on Saturdays and Sundays, just before the lunchtime news bulletin, in an entertainment format where having fun is almost more important than playing for the cash prizes.

Each contestant starts off with an initial purse of 1,000 euros, and participants play every program for an additional 400 euros as they try to qualify for the final stage of the show and the jackpot; however, if they do not answer all the questions correctly, the prize is shared between the winner of each program (200 euros) and the jackpot (200 euros), which accumulates all the prize money that hasn’t been won. The last time a contestant won the jackpot was almost two years ago, on 11th July 2019, with 4,800 euros.

The show is an adaptation of the successful program which made its debut in 2014 on ETB2 produced by Hostoil (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO). Since then, it has been adapted by a host of other regional networks with excellent audience figures such as Aragón TV, À Punt, Canal Sur, ETB2, IB3, Canarias TV and TV3.
