If you’ve ever sat on your sofa watching Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?, swearing blind that you could answer the questions better than the poor terrified contestant in the hot seat, now’s your chance to put your money where your mouth is and prove it. Take your place on that famed chair in this six-reel slot from Big Time Gaming and see if you can walk away with that oh-so-elusive million (or at least this game’s equivalent, which is 50 extra spins).
Everything about this slot is designed to make you nervous. The tense, ominous soundtrack, with its rapid pulse-like beat; the black, blue-lit background, which is based on the set of the TV show; the spotlights overhead – it's all to remind you how much is at stake here. Don’t worry, though – the friendly guys over at Big Time Gaming have made sure to include various things to help you out, so read on to see whether or not you have the courage to continue.
You’ll notice that the game is made up of six reels, with an extra row underneath. This row adds a symbol to reels two, three, four and five, and any wilds that may appear during the game will only be present on this extra row. When you win, the winning symbols explode and are replaced by symbols from above on the main reels, and from the right on the extra row.
Keep an eye out for the Millionaire scatter icon on the six main reels. Getting three of these will unlock eight extra spins and start the Hot Seat Free Spins Gamble – which is the part of the game that may look familiar to you. Here you have the chance to win up to 50 extra spins by moving up the prize ladder, which has 12 rungs. The rung values are 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 30, 40 and 50 extra spins. The number of scatters you had when the feature was triggered will determine where you start. As you move up the ladder, try and reach rungs two and seven, as these are safety net rungs and will guarantee you at least 10 and 20 extra spins respectively.
If you’re not feeling brave enough to gamble on the number of extra spins you receive, you can press Walk Away. If you’re willing to risk it, though, choose an answer from the options A, B, C or D and hit Final Answer. If you get the answer right, you’ll move one rung up the prize ladder, but if you’re wrong, you’ll exit the feature with 0, 10 or 20 extra spins (depending on where you got to on the ladder). Bear in mind that you can’t Walk Away from rungs two and seven because there’s no risk of losing your extra spins there.
Followers of the TV version of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire will know that each player is given three lifelines to help them out during the game: 50:50, Phone a Friend, and Ask the Audience. One of these will be selected for each of your gambles. 50:50 removes two incorrect answers; Phone a Friend reveals the most likely answer and its chance of being correct. Ask the Audience reveals the chance of being correct for each answer.
During the extra spins round, there’s an unlimited win multiplier which starts at one and increases by one after each win. Extra spin scatter icons can appear in the extra row and will award additional extra spins. Three scatters will award you four additional extra spins, while four will give you eight.
There’s an autoplay feature for those of you who like to sit back and let the game do the work, so there’s nothing holding you back from chasing down the prize at the top of that ladder. Your chance has come - play Who Wants To Be a Millionaire!
