Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megaways Slot Machine
One of the oldest TV show franchise Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is the theme of the long-waited slot release by Big Time Gaming. The WWBAM is their first branded slot, one that forms part of their trademarked Megaways system that has brought the company a huge success with the random reel modifier that allows an insane number of winning ways. This is an extremely volatile slot, as expected from Big Time Gaming - the most daring game software developer of late.
The first thing you should know about this slot, not to be shocked when you load it, is that there can be up to 7 symbols on a single reel. The Wild symbol only appears on the Extra Reel. There is also the Millionaire Scatter symbol which can trigger the Free Spins feature.
By landing 3 Millionaire Scatters, you will receive 8 Free Spins. This is the moment you’re put on the Hot Spot to decide whether to walk away with the Free Spins you’ve triggered in the base game or to gamble the Free Spins for a chance to win more, up to 50 Free Spins or, just like in the game show, lose them all.
There’s a safety net, of course, where you can reach 10, 20 or 50 Free Spins and be guaranteed with those spins. The first mentioned gamble is the one that brings the most of the risk; if you manage to safely get past it and receive your 10 free spins, you’ll enter in the risk-free gamble zone.
Just like in the game show, you have the popular “Phone a Friend”, “50-50” and “Ask the Audience” help, which you can use in order to give the right answer to a question that has the A, B, C or D options.
Once you've entered the Free Games feature, you have multipliers increasing by 1 for each winning combination on the cascading reels. Just like the Wild, the Free Spin Scatter can only appear on the extra reel, where 3 or 4 scatters will reward you with extra 4 to 8 Free Spins.
Theme & Design
The Big Time Gaming’s slot is the direct tribute to the game show, so normally, there are the four highest-paying symbols, the red, blue, green and purple gems, the latest paying the most, 50x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on a full payline. In the background, you will see the well-known stage of the game show, with the distinctive blue colored neon lights, and the familiar soundtrack that further intensifies the drama of the gameplay. It is a perfect replica to the game show and it is really immersive.
Wagering & Paylines
The minimum bet you could place to play the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megaways slot is $0.20, while the maximum you could bet is $20.00. With 117649 win ways, the free spins and the high paying symbols, as well as the great RTP of 96.24%, there is a lot for grabs. The max win potential on the max bet is, not surprisingly, $1 million.
This beautifully designed slot perfectly converts the game show concept into an online slot format. You will find that the theme is impeccably portrayed, you have all the features that were actually on the game show, which means that this slot will definitely become a huge hit, just as the game show is. Big Time Gaming has done a great job with this slot, especially for incorporating the 117k+ winning ways. A must try!
