Who Wants to be a Millionaire reproduces the set of the mythical program presented by Carlos Sobera “Who wants to be a millionaire?”, Although it is true that as we will see, apart from aesthetics, it does not have much to do with the contest of TV.
Who wants to be a millionaire slot has 6 reels with 7-8-8-8-8-7 heights, and 117,649 possible combinations thanks to the BTW patented MegaWays engine. For those who know the Bonanza and Extra Chilly slots, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire will be most familiar, because in addition to the structure, the game bases many of its special features on these other two previous slots.
How to play the slot Who Wants to be Millonaire?
Although the extra functions of this slot can be a bit overwhelming, in the base game everything focuses on the fact that every spin that happens on the top 6 × 7 board is complemented by the symbols that appear in the extra bottom boxes, under the center reels (2, 3, 4 and 5).
With each winning combination in the base game, a re-spin cascade is produced: the winning symbols disappear to make way for those who are above, forming new winning combinations within the same roll. In the bottom line, replacements go from the right.
The symbols that pay the most are the precious gems, by combinations of between 2 and 6 for the purple diamond, and between 3 and 6 for the other three. The highest payment they offer is 50 times your bet per roll. The highest prize you can get is 500,000 credits.
The list of symbols is completed with another half dozen minor symbols, between x1.75 and x0.1 your bet. So answering the question we all ask ourselves after seeing the title of this slot: No, you definitely cannot become a millionaire with just one roll. The high variance of the game and its maximum RTP of 96.27% also do not help in this regard.
Free spins and contest to add spins
To launch the slot bonuses Who wants to be a millionaire, you need to get 3 scatters or more that start the initial 8 free spins. For every extra scater you take out, you add another 4 extra spins. If for example you get 4 scatters, the round will start with 8 + 4 = 12 spins.
When a bonus round starts, the machine shows you four options (A, B, C and D), just like in the format of the television contest. You must choose between selecting one of them at random, or stand up. If you play you can go up 12 sections to a maximum of 50 turns.
When you plant, you start the round with the number of turns you have accumulated at that time. And if you’re wrong, you lose the free spins and return to the base game. Sections 2 and 7 are safe, which means that if you lose, it is as if you had planted yourself.
The graphics relating to the wild cards that appeared in the program are only decorative: it is important that you keep this in mind. That 98% of the public say that it is the B does not guarantee anything. It is only a nod to the original format.
Other versions of the game
