The setting here is a TV studio. On the reels you’ll see A to 9 royal values plus 4 more rewarding gemstone symbols. The best of this quartet is the purple stone which pays 50 times your stake if you land 6 in combination. There’s also a wild. The number of ways to win changes with each spin. At their maximum, the reels can offer 117,649 different winning possibilities.
Every time a winner hits, you’ll trigger a reaction. The winning symbols are removed and new symbols drop down and replace them. These reactions keep on coming as long as a new winning combination is created.
Land 3 scatters on the same spin and you’ll trigger the game’s only feature, the Hot Seat Free Spins Gamble feature. You’ll start this round with 8 free spins - you can try and gamble your way to more free spins too.
In this part of the game, you can use lifelines like on the TV show. The ‘Ask The Audience’ will give you a percentage for each of the A, B, C and D options. For example, you could see B – 75%. The phone a friend option reveals the most likely winning answer, again offering a percentage. The 50/50 is a coin flip.
If you guess correctly, you’ll work your way up the free spins ladder. There are milestones available if you reach rungs 2 and 7. They guarantee at least 10 or 20 free spins. Make it to the top rung of the ladder and you’ll get 50 free spins.
You’ll then go on and play your free spins. These start at a standard payout rate of 1x. Each reaction win increases that multiplier by 1. You can re-trigger another 4 or 8 free spins if you manage to land 3 or 4 scatters on the same free spin. The good news is that the multiplier can increase infinitely!
If you’ve seen the TV version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, you’ll find plenty that’s familiar in this slot game adaptation, especially the famous theme tune that blasts away throughout.
This slot game version can be something of an all or nothing affair. This is a volatile game with maximum payouts of 32,720 times your stake on every free spin! It might not make you a millionaire but this gameshow is an entertaining one and worth a spin if you’re a fan of the TV show or just enjoy volatile play and the MegaWays game engine.
I also recommend Big Time Gaming’s Bonanza which was the first MegaWays slot game to be released (and still very much loved).
