Also, in our version the contestants had to stake 1,000 of their own money. Is it safe to assume that's been dropped for this one?

I would guess that's a safe assumption. In fact, I would go so far as to suggest that the contestants here are probably receiving an appearance fee.

How have they worked the format, just out of interest?

Our original UK show was 5 or later 6 rounds, with the time saved up from the first five rounds added to the standard clocks in the final general round.

Close.

It's 4 Rounds. The time saved from the first 3 is added to the fourth.

No money is invested, however, winners in early rounds get to take a full-cocked swing at Ken Jennings.

And the final game has a fifth round which is straight trivia.

Players got their expenses paid, only the overall winner gets a prize.
