Who Wants to be a Millionaire claims SOTW… that’s our final answer

Big Time Gaming has claimed our Slot of the Week award as it celebrates the return of UK TV show Who Wants to be a Millionaire

Big Time Gaming has claimed our Slot of the Week award for the second week in a row as it celebrates the return of the Jeremy Clarkson led UK TV show Who Wants to be a Millionaire featuring the company’s Megapays mechanic.

“Slot of the Week for two consecutive weeks! First with Gold Megaways and now with Millionaire Megapays and we couldn’t be happier,” commented Big Time Gaming CEO, Nik Robinson.

“The collaboration between SG Digital for Gold and Relax Gaming for Megapays has been seamless. So much work goes into the conceptualising and creation of these games, that to be given this extra bit of recognition for an awesome game, is a real thrill for us all.”

The six reel slot follows on from its 2019 Megaways predecessor – BTG’s first-ever branded slot – which offers four Megapays Jackpots: Mini, Midi, Major and Mega.

Within the game, all four Megapays Jackpots are progressive, meaning that each time a bet is made, a portion of it is added to each Jackpot. Any of the Megapays Jackpots can be won during a Megapays feature.

Harnessing the “edge-of-the-seat drama” of the quiz show capturing the essence of the show with all the sights and sounds, aside from the Jackpot system, the slot comes with a free spins mode, unlimited retriggers and up to 117,649 ways to win. 

Additionally, the title incorporates a Reaction mechanic in which, once wins are achieved, the winning symbols are removed from the reels allowing for new symbols to replace them as they fall into the unoccupied space.

Similar to the show, players get three lifelines – Phone a Friend, 50-50 or Ask the Audience. Moreover, the free spins round can offer a win multiplier starting from x1 which increases by one for every reaction. 

In order to trigger the Hot Seat free spins gamble, the player must land three Millionaire scatters which will award them eight free spins. During this mode, players select either A, B, C, or D – similar to the show’s answer layout – and select ‘Final Answer’. 

If the correct answer is selected, players advance up the prize ladder. However, an incorrect choice can drop players down and even end the round prematurely.

Finally, the Megapays feature traces its roots back to an earlier collaboration with Relax Gaming, with the partnership ensuring the title takes advantage of the aggregator’s speed-to-market and integration framework.

Simon Hammon, chief product officer at Relax Gaming, added: “Who Wants to be a Millionaire Megaways was a hugely popular game in all our markets and the new Megapays  revamp adds the kind of dizzying win potential that’s even more in keeping with the original show. 

“We’re pretty sure this game will be even bigger – after all, everyone dreams of sitting in that hot seat.”

The title comes with an RTP of 95.38 per cent with a high volatility level implemented within the gameplay. Readers who would like to read more about Big Time Gaming’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire can click here to be redirected to the supplier’s official website.
