Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megaways
Big Time Gaming has created quite a collection of Megaways slot machines and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megaways is yet another addition to the series. We won’t explain the theme of this slot as it is pretty obvious what it’s about. Those who are fans of the TV show will definitely love this slot and those who are not should give it a try as it comes with great in-game features with up to 50,000x total stake winning potential. This slot may not make you a millionaire but it most certainly gets pretty close to it. Anyhow, the game comes with up to 117,649 ways to win, reactions (that is, cascading reels), Free Spins with an interesting gamble feature and increasing unlimited multipliers. So with all this, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is a pretty amazing game with a great theme that is familiar to almost everyone.
Megaways and Cascading Reels
The game comes with 7 reels – 6 vertical ones and one extra horizontal one positioned right below the main reel board. Each reel can take up to 7 symbols with the extra reel adding a symbol to the reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. With this reel structure on any spin, you can get any number of ways to win up to the max of 117,649! As a part of the Megaways mechanics, there is a reaction feature. This is similar to cascading reels since each win will cause the winning symbols to disappear while the new one will fall and fill in the empty positions. This reaction keeps occurring as long as you have consecutive wins. This is a great way to keep the wins coming and action flowing on the reels.
The reels are set in the TV studio and the fans of the show will recognize the setting. The symbols on the reels are not theme-related which doesn’t ruin the whole TV show atmosphere but makes this slot more approachable to the ones who are not familiar with the show. Anyhow, on the reels, you will see standard playing card icons that come with lower values as well as four different colored gems as the higher paying icons. The big purple shining diamond is the most lucrative symbol giving you 50x your total stake for 6 of a kind combos. There is also a wild that appears on the extra reel only and is there to substitute all regular symbols on the reels and in this way enhancing or completing your winning combinations. The wild is represented by the question mark set on the colorful background. Finally, the symbol you should keep a special eye on is the game’s logo icon which will lead you to the Free Spins Bonus and the exciting Hot Seat Gamble Feature.
Get More Free Spins With The Hot Seat Gamble Option
To enter the Free Spins round you need to land at least three logo scatters on the reels. This will award 8 free spins and each additional scatter will level you up a rang in the Hot Seat Gamble ladder where you can win up to 50 free spins. So you cannot win more than 8 free spins initially but with deciding to take the hot seat you can increase the number of free spins for the round. It is your decision whether to gamble your free spins or not. The outcome is more than 8 free spins or if the luck is not on your side, no free spins at all (that is you can lose them all).
Basically, upon triggering the Bonus round you will be offered to take the gamble and try and win up to 50 free spins in the Hot Seat Gamble which consists of a prize ladder of 12 rungs with different values. The values are 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 30, 40, and the max of 50 free spins. Your starting rung depends on the number of triggering scatters so with 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatters you start at the rung 1, 2, 3, or 4, respectively. Just like in the real show, there are safety rungs meaning that reaching those positions you get a guaranteed number of free spins (rungs 2 and 7 guarantee 10 and 20 free spins). All you get to do in this Gamble feature is choosing one answer (A, B, C or D). And of course, just like in the real show, there are three Lifelines: 50:50, Phone a Friend, and Ask the Audience. Each lifeline will help you out with choosing the right answer. And at any time you can leave with the number of free spins won (except on the rungs 2 and 7) by selecting the Walk Away option. Anyway, with a bit of luck with choosing the answers, you can earn a lot more than the initial 8 free spins. Of course, there is always the possibility of losing the free spins but that’s all a part of the game and with a bit of risk you can never become a millionaire.
Finally, when you get your free spins (gambling them or not), you enter the Free Spins round with increasing unlimited multipliers which is the characteristic of the majority of Megaways slot machines such as Bonanza. You start with x1 multiplier and with each reaction, the multiplier will increase by x1 with no max limit. This will make the Bonus round quite lucrative and with the massive number of ways to win, you are in for some real Millionaire action especially if you get those 20, 30 or even 50 free spins.
