Well, who doesn’t want to become one? Do we really need to ask this question every time? Ah yes, I am referring to the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire franchise that is the theme for the jackpot-ready Millionaire Megapays slot by Big Time Gaming.
Like the other franchises that spawned from the popular TV show, this slot game evokes fun, entertainment, and hope for fortune. And I am hoping that the game designer has made the right improvement on this game and not simply the obligatory addition of the word ‘mega.’
In Millionaire Megapays, the gameplay is different with huge winning potential, as the specs sheet says. The game links to the Megapays progressive jackpot network next to the Bonanza Megapays. It comes with a game show vibe for gameplay with Millionaire Scatters, Multipliers, Megapays symbols that bring huge rewards, including the Mega Jackpot! With its high volatility, this game is will take you on a game show on the reels that may reward a potential fortune!
It’s hard to pass judgment on a slot game based solely on its inspiration and title. So to come up with an objective review of the Millionaire Megapays, I will start first by checking out some of its highs and lows:
To be honest, this is not the first time that I have played game show-inspired slot machines. In most of these games, the online slots become a confusing product and sometimes impact the overall entertainment value that it delivers to players. In Millionaire Megapays, the approach seems similar. You are transported to a virtual show set complete with matching thrilling sound effects in the background as you open the game. The only difference is that you are the only player, and the screen is your playground.
The spinning action takes place in a 6-reel grid with two to seven symbols and one horizontal bonus reel that hosts four more symbols. As you simulate the gameshow, watch out for the Sparkling Diamond as the game’s highest paying regular symbol, which pays up to 50x your bet.
Big Time Gaming is proud to share that this is the perfect Twitch Stream Game in this tech sheet. Well, I will have to agree on this one thanks to the game’s attention to excellent visuals and sound effects. The game’s visuals just pop into my screen’s device, and the suspense of waiting for the winning spin is truly captured in every round. As mentioned, this comes with six reels and two to seven rows.
This is a friendly slot for beginners as it boasts bets that range from 0.40 up to a maximum of 30.00 per spin. You can collect a win from at least three identical symbols up to a six-of-a-kind. The Sparkling Diamond is the most valuable as it pays up to 50x the bet, and there’s a Psychedelic Wild too that can replace other symbols to form winning combinations. This Megapays game gives you 324 to 117,749 ways to win.
Yes, this game comes with a Free Spins bonus, but it’s not the biggest showpiece of this production. I will explain this below. Going back to the Free Spins, you will enter this mode by landing three Millionaire Scatters, and this will immediately award your account with eight Free Spins. This will then activate the Hot Seat Free Spins Gamble. But you land more than three; you will begin from a much higher position.
To gamble, you will select from three buttons A, B, C, or D and after deciding on a selection, click ‘Final Answer’. If you succeed, you move up the prize ladder; losing it drops down a rung, and you can even lose all spins. In this game, rungs 2 and 7 are safety nets that guarantee 10 or 20 Free Spins through the Free Gamble.
What I like about this game is its loyalty to the theme. It incorporates some exciting game elements such as Phone a Friend and Ask the Audience to make the bonus round more exciting.
But the biggest bonus of the game is the Megapays. In this bonus, there are four jackpots that you can potentially unlock. So how can we win here? Well, it’s randomly activated on your paid spin, and instead of the usual Millionaire set-up, you are transported to a Las Vegas-themed environment! The transition is cool, and I think it’s one of the game’s highlights, and it underscores the importance of the bonus. In this round, one pay symbol lights up on the screen and becomes the Megapays. Here, a 6×7 reel set spins, and when the selected symbol is selected, it’s collected. But when there’s none, the round ends. So here’s how to win the Megapays jackpot:
As I said, it’s the game’s selling point with the Mega Jackpot seeded at €300,000!
Millionaire Megapays is one of those slots that I like both in terms of visuals and the potential jackpot. The jackpot part is understandable since this is the game’s selling point since it’s now under the Megapays network.
I also love the cinematic appeal of the game, and the product sheet that is posted on its official website does not lie. Indeed, this is a perfect slot game for Twitch! Millionaire Megapays is colorful, fun, and very dramatic, especially if you hit one of the jackpots!
