Based on the hit TV show, Who Wants To Be a Millionaire is a 6 reel slot from Big Time Gaming. Played using a MegaWays game engine, the number of ways to land a winning combination varies with each spin but can reach up to 117,649. The game also comes with symbol drop re-spins and a free spins round with dynamic multipliers. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
The design here will be instantly recognisable to anyone who has seen the TV version of the show. The reels are set against the famous set. There you’ll find A to 9 royal values plus a quartet of gemstones. Winning combinations are created by landing matching symbols on adjacent reels. The best payer is the purple diamond which pays 50 times your stake if you land a 6-symbol combination. If you do land a winner, the successful symbols are blasted away and a reaction takes place with new symbols dropping in and replacing them. These continue as long as a new winner is created.
The game comes with a Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing 3 or more scatters (the Millionaire logo) on the same spin. You’ll then receive 4 or 8 free spins (for 3 or 4 scatters). You can gamble and try and increase that amount though. You’ll be offered A, B, C and D options – pick 1 of them. If you’re correct, you’ll increase the number of free spins awarded. Helping you here are the lifelines which are the same as in the TV show.
These are chosen at random. The ‘Ask the Audience’ will give you a percentage for each of the A, B, C and D options. For example, you could see C – 85%. It’s a similar story with the phone a friend which reveals the most likely winning answer. The 50/50 is a straight tossup.
There are 12 rungs on the free spins ladder to work your way up. If you make it to the 2nd and 7th rungs, you’re guaranteed 10 or 20 free spins. If you make it all the way to the top of the ladder, 50 free spins are on offer. Those free spins also come with a multiplier. This starts at 1x but increases with each reaction symbol drop win. Re-triggers are possible too. Land 3 or 4 logo symbols in the mini reels below the main set and you’ll get an extra 4 or 8 free spins.
This slot version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is a pretty accurate recreation of the TV show, minus the general knowledge questions of course. The visuals are excellent and the famous theme tune plays in the background while you spin.
The reaction symbol drops deliver plenty of action and the dynamic multiplier can have a big impact in the Free Spins feature. If you like slots with the MegaWays game engine or just enjoyed the TV quiz, then Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is certainly worth a view. If you like slots based on telly shows, iSoftBet’s 24 and Microgaming’s Game of Thrones are worth playing.
