Casino game developers have often looked to hit TV gameshows as a source of inspiration for their creations. There’s a natural crossover between the drama, tension and ‘shiny-floor’ presentation of successful gameshows and many casino machines that makes it easy to see why. Indeed companies like Gamevy has specifically sought to emulate the style with its popular instant wins, and we’ve also seen direct spin-offs of legendary TV formats such as IGT’s Wheel of Fortune slot. Many years ago Ash Gaming delivered the very first Who Wants To Be A Millionaire slot game at the height of the show’s popularity in the last decade. Now with the recent reboot of this classic TV format, it’s been revived as a slot too and keen players will be delighted to find it’s Big Time Gaming in the hot seat now!
THE MEGAWAYS TREATMENT
The mention of Big Time Gaming is a cause for celebration as it’s this Aussie developer who’s taken the slot world by storm with its Megaways slots, so the blend of that extraordinary way to play with reels and the Millionaire format’s famous route to riches is likely to get many players rather moist with excitement. All the core appeal of blockbusting Megaways slots like Bonanza, Extra Chilli and Diamond Mine is here, with the thrill of a Millionaire-style session in the Hot Seat in prospect if you hit the free spins bonus. That opportunity is a way to gamble towards a top bonus of fifty free spins, invoking all the classic Millionaire ingredients of Lifelines and the safety net rungs of the prize ladder to bring a fabulous suspense to winning your final reward.
IS THAT YOUR FINAL ANSWER?
So, next question. Is this the best, gameshow-themed slot ever? We’re confident we won’t have to phone a friend for the answer to that. We say ‘yes’. This game positively reeks of being a Player Favourite for some time to come.
