The wombat says: Who Wants To Be A Millionaire needs no introduction Wombat fans – it was probably one of the most popular telly shows in the early 2000s.
Big Time Gaming (you know, the gamesmakers behind White Rabbit and Bonanza) have turned TV’s sweatiest and most stressful TV programme into one of their Megaways’ 117649 ways to win online slots. And we haven’t been this excited since Woolagalong United won the Aussie League cup in 1989. These are the guys and gals behind the Monopoly Megaways slot so they know a thing or two about big brand games.
So if you fancy yourself heading to the tables in the Riviera Star slot in Monaco at some point, then nod your head.
Is that your final answer? Yes Chris, this wombat is going to play…
Look and Feel
The reels are set against the famous quiz show set with a silhouette of the audience in the background it. Best of all the soundtrack is the same as in the TV show too! We give it 10/10 for atmosphere! Slick and stylish: BTG have nailed it.
You never know, if you answer your questions right, you could be hanging out with the ladies and gentleman in the That´s Rich slot machine from Play´n GO!
You can play the Who Wants to be a Millionaire slot from 0.20 to 100 per spin in your local currency. And as a Megaways game, players have up to 117649 ways to win on each and every spin of the reels. EEEK! This is all thanks to the unique format of the game in which symbols of varying sizes can appear on the reels – there is also an extra row that appears only under reels two to five and it moves symbols in from the right hand side, instead of a vertical drop.
The game also uses a cascading reels mechanism which means after a win all winning icons are removed and replaced by new symbols from above.
Your symbols on the reels include; 4 gemstones in purple, red, blue and green as the high value symbols (this wombat doesn’t remember those in the TV series but OK…) plus the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A playing cards make up the lower values.
The wild icon is a multicoloured question mark (which will land only on the extra reel). It will do the usual job of replacing all other symbols to help make extra winning combos.
Meanwhile the Scatter symbol is the Millionaire game logo. Keep your eyes peeled for it Wombat fans.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Millionaire Spins and Hot Seat Ladder Land 3x game logo scatters on the reels and you’ll set off the Free Spins. Next, you’ll be given up to 8 free goes with an increasing multiplier. But, you can gamble and try to increase that amount (just like on the telly!)
You’ll get A, B, C and D options – pick one and if it’s right, you’ll get more free spins. As you’d expect, giving you a helping hand are the very same lifelines you’ll find in TV:
Ask the Audience: This will give you a percentage for each of the A, B, C and D answers
Phone a friend: Sadly you can’t actually phone a friend (that would be mental) but the game does reveal a potential winning answer.
50/50: Will narrow down your picks to 2 options.
There are 12 levels to work your way up – and if make it to the 2nd and 7th rungs, you’ll be guaranteed 10 or 20 free spins. Pick the options correctly, advance all the way to the top of the ruddy ladder and you’ll be given a totally crazy 50 free spins.
But that’s not all slot lovers; land another 3x or 4x logo Scatters symbols on the extra horizontal reels you’ll get another 4 or 8 free spins. Plus, the Free Spins round can be re-triggered.
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire slot does a great job of making you feel like you’re under the lights in that scary-ass studio.
This wombat found it a bit tricky to trigger off the Free Spins, but when we did it was well worth the wait! It really is a lot of fun to play – particularly if you’re fans of trivia TV show like this wombat. Oh, and there’s plenty of wins to be had too.
