Squid Game: The Challenge viewers have slammed the show's finale as 'boring' and 'lucklustre' after the winner scooped a $4.6million prize.
The ending finally streamed on Wednesday night after a whopping 456 total players took part - in one of the biggest reality shows ever.
The spin-off is based on the record-breaking Korean drama, including the same challenges without the deathly consequences of the original, with games such as Red Light, Green Light, Honeycombs and Hopscotch.
New games were also added including 'Warship' - a version of the boardgame battleship, and 'Circle of Trust' - a variation of Heads Up Seven Up.
In the end just three players remained to battle it out for the huge prize: Player 016 Sam, Player 287 Mai, and Player 451 Phil.
