Big Time Gaming released the Who Wants to be a Millionaire slot in November 2018. Since we’re not followers of the show on which the game is themed we’ve never played it – until now. As with many popular slots, there is a demo version online so we decided to dedicate 30 minutes to a Who Wants to be a Millionaire free play version.
Looking at the paytable, we decided we weren’t impressed with the symbols. Okay, they are only symbols, but they are very unimaginative. Having to look at these for any length of time would be a good reason to use the Auto Play feature. The top payout in the basic game (50x stake) is achieved for 6 Purple Diamonds on a pay line. There are a total of 117,649 pay lines.
Clicking the AUTO tab revealed just three options. We set the maximum number of spins to 100. The Loss limit was set to €400 and the Single win limit to €1,000.00.
We weren’t expecting to profit because Millionaire is a High Volatility slot – in other words, there is a big difference in the possible payouts – the maximum being 1,000,000. So with that in mind, the RTP of 96.24% can be misleading if the player doesn’t take account of this volatility.
If you have a small bank or want to maximize your playing time we would suggest you give this slot a miss. Instead, go for a Low/Medium Volatility game with an RTP of 96% or more. On the other hand, if you want a shot at winning one million (and who doesn’t)…
We had a few medium-size wins, but during the tryout not once did we land the minimum 3 Millionaire symbols required to play the Game Show bonus game. Winning up to 50,000x the stake is possible by activating the Game Show bonus feature which gives you the chance to win free spins. The bonus game options are themed with the well-known ‘lifeline’ terms associated with the TV show such as ‘Ask the Audience’.
Who Wants to be a Millionaire Free Play – Our Verdict
Did we like this slot? If you are a fan of the TV show you will like this slot, however, we found the basic game uninspiring. Then again, since there is a statistical possibility of becoming a millionaire we would play this slot if a casino offered some tempting bonuses.
