I’m sure you know about my app, Heads Up. But you may not know I also have a Casino app. It’s called Ellen’s Road to Riches. You can play it anywhere, staff meetings, bar mitzvahs, long weddings. People love it, and it’s so much fun to play.

It has a bunch of exciting casino games. And you may even see some familiar faces, like my producer Andy. And the more you play, the more games you unlock.

You can download the app on iTunes or Google Play today. All that talking got me in the mood to gamble. So I’m going to give someone a chance or win some real money right now in a game we’re calling, Keep On Rolling Down the Road to Riches.

Where is Tamara Martinez? Come on down. [APPLAUSE] Hi. Oh my god, hi!

Hi. How are you doing? Fine. And you? Oh, good. Where do you live?

What do you do? Los Angeles, California. And I’m an office assistant at a district office. I see, wonderful. OK.

Here’s how this game works. There are just a few slots in my Road to Riches app over there. You’re going to get to play each one of them. And for each one you play, you could win some real money.

The further down the road you go, the harder it is to win. So the prizes get bigger. There’s a die at each podium. Each one has a certain number of sides with my face on it.

If you roll the die and it lands on my face, you win the amount of money shown. If the die lands on a red X, you don’t win the money. All right?

OK. Twitch, bring her the first die. And you’re going to stand right here. Try to get it to land on my face. OK. Ready? Oh! Oh, no.

All right, well, that didn’t work out. No. No. Let’s see what– oh, $100, OK. Twitch, let’s trade it out. See, it’s harder because right– right, you only had one X on this one, and yet, you’ve managed to hit that.

So now– There’s two on this one! Yeah, I know. It gets harder.

That’s what I’m saying. And pretty soon, you’re just going to have one face. OK. No, I want– All right, you want the face. OK, all right. Oh, no.

Tamara, what do you have against my face? I don’t– nothing. Hold on, you’re exhausting me, then I have to keep bringing this back. OK, all right.

Now I’m like a giant shepherd. All right. What could you have won there? Let’s see. $500.

All right. Wouldn’t it be amazing if you don’t get any except the last one? All right, come on, Tamara, do it. Come on.  You did it.

$1,000. $,1000. All right.

Oh, you’re better with less of my faces. That’s great. Let’s see. Come on, do it. Oh, no.

No, that didn’t work out. What was that going to be? That was going to be $2,500. Oh, my god!

All right, come on now. Oh, this is– Tamara, I know. One– come on, look at it. Focus on it. Think about it.

No! Oh, no. You threw it wrong. I think you have to throw it better than that. OK. Yeah.

You did it! You did it! Ready? $10,000!

I love you so much!
