Millionaire Megapays is a new casino slot from Big Time Gaming where we once again get to experience a wonderful mashup between the biggest game show in the world and fantastic mechanisms from this game provider. BTG has previously created two slots with this theme, where we got to see Megaways mechanic and the second time their Millionaire Mystery Box, where both gave a great thrill during the spins. This time they choose to put in a higher gear and introduce their Megapays mechanic which we have previously seen in Bonanza Megapays and the great take away from that slot was clearly the potential to be able to get gigantic winnings from progressive Jackpots. This time, the lucky player can win up to 72310X the bet, so let's find out what it takes to get this win.
Millionaire Megapays is a video slot from Big Time Gaming that has 6 reels and 2 to 7 rows. This variation in the number of rows is due to the game's Megapays mechanic which can give up to 117649 ways to win. You can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.40 and a Max.bet of 30. The game's RTP is slightly higher than the average, where we in this slot have an RTP of 96.38%. It is a very high volatility, where you can successfully win up to incredible 72310X the bet.
In this gaming adventure that mixes the very lucrative Megapays mechanic with the iconic Who wants to be a millionaire theme, we have a couple of great features to help us in the hunt for the big wins. The features are Megapays, Extra Reel, Reactions, Wild Symbol, Free Spins, Hot Seat Free Spins Gamble and Lifelines.
The game's design consists of a theme with the popular TV show Who wants to be a millionaire. In the background of the slots, you can see the iconic studio where the participants sit in the "Hot-seat". It is the classic design of buttons and symbols on the game, which distinguishes Big Time Gaming from other game providers. You can play this slot on notepads, mobiles and desktops. You create a winning combination by landing 3 or more of the same symbol type on adjacent reels starting at the left.
The lower paying symbols consist of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. If you land 6 of the same symbol type, it gives between 0.8X to 1.75X the bet. The higher paying symbols consist of gems in the colors green, blue, red and diamond. If you land 6 of the same symbol type, it gives between 2X to 50X the bet. The diamond symbol already pays for 2 symbols and then it gives 2X. The rainbow-colored circle with a question mark and the text wild is as expected the game's wild symbol and the symbol showing the game logo is the scatter symbol. Let's find out what the features do.

What features are in the Millionaire Megapays slot?
The features are Megapays, Extra Reel, Reactions, Wild Symbol, Hot Seat Free Spins Gamble, Lifelines and Free Spins.
When you spin the reels, the Megapays feature can be randomly activated and then a Megapays symbol will be selected. It is then one of the symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K or A that is chosen as the Megapays symbol and you will then receive a spin. If you land one or more Megapay symbols, you will continue to receive new spins and each time this special symbol lands, it will be locked. Depending on how many Megapays symbols you manage to collect can result in you taking advantage of one of the four different progressive Jackpots available. Being progressive means that a small percentage of your betsize will be placed on the various Jackpots which results in them being able to grow indefinitely. You need the following number of Megapays symbols to receive the various Jackpots:
Mini Jackpot (4 to 7 Megapays symbols) = Starts with €100 and 1.50% of your bet size is added to this Jackpot on each bet made.
Midi Jackpot (8 to 11 Megapays symbols) = Starts with €1500 and 1.30% of your bet size is added to this Jackpot on each bet made.
Major Jackpot (12 to 14 Megapays symbols) = Starts with €20,000 and 1.20% of your bet size is added to this Jackpot on each bet made.
Mega Jackpot (15 or more Megapays symbols) = Starts with €300,000 and 1.10% of your bet size is added to this Jackpot on each bet made.
There is an extra reel below the normal reels, which will add extra symbols to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
When you create a winning combination, the Reactions feature is activated. Then all the symbols that were part of the winning combination will disappear from the reels and then new symbols will fall down to cover the empty positions. This continues as long as new winning combinations are created.
This symbol can only land on the extra reel, where it helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols. The only symbol type that it doesn’t substitute for is the scatter symbol.
If you land 3 or more scatter symbols, the Hot Seat Free Spins Gamble feature is activated. Depending on how many scatters you had at activation results in you starting on different rungs with different number of free spins, where 3 scatters let you start on rung 1. There are 12 different rungs where rung 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 give 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 30, 40 and 50 free spins respectively.
Like the original TV show, there are safety net rungs, where we in this slot have rung 2 and 7 as safety net rungs. You are then guaranteed to get 10 and 20 free spins respectively.
You can choose to take advantage of the first free spins directly by clicking Walk away. But if you want to gamble, you can succeed in getting more free spins. You gamble by selecting one of the options A, B, C or D and then clicking Final Answer. If you choose the right one, you will be moved a rung up on the steps, but if you fail with the answer, you will receive 0, 7 or 20 free spins depending on which rung you had reached.
To make the game more exciting and above all easier, you can take part in the Lifelines feature. At each gamble that takes place, you will be given one of three Lifelines. These are and do the following:
50:50 = This will remove 2 incorrect answers.
Phone a Friend = This will show the most likely correct answer, in addition you will see how likely it is that the option is correct.
Ask the Audience = This will show how likely it is that the various options are correct.
Once you have completed the Hot Seat Free Spins Gamble feature, it's time to take advantage of the free spins. Within this feature you will start with a 1X win multiplier and with each reaction that takes place, this multiplier will increase by 1. There is no limit to how big it can be, and the current multiplier will be multiplied with wins that are created, to make the profits bigger.
You can succeed in getting extra free spins by landing 3 or 4 scatter symbols on the extra reel, where you get 4 and 8 extra spins respectively for this.
This is a theme that Big Time Gaming was chosen to use on several occasions before, but with each new version they manage to make the hot seat even hotter. Already at the spins in the base game, the adrenaline-filled journey begins, where through a wonderful combination of wilds and reactions you can succeed in generating most of the bigger wins. But at any time during these spins, the Megapays feature can be activated and then you are truly up for a treat. Then a Megapays symbol will be selected and by landing 4 or more of these, you get to take part in one of the four progressive Jackpots Mini, Midi, Major or Mega. These Jackpots start with the values €100, €1500, €20000 and €300000 respectively and although their starting values are incredibly large, they can grow even more. This type of progressive Jackpots creates an incredibly wonderful atmosphere for the spins, which we could also take part in at Bonanza Megapays. These Jackpots are a great addition, but there are more things that you can manage to use during the spins, namely the Free Spins.
By landing 3 or more scatter symbols you are moved to the hot seat and there you can choose to Gamble for more free spins by clicking on the right option. Fortunately, you get Lifelines at every Gamble and they make the choices easier. This is a feature that can give up to an incredible 50 free spins. Once you start using these free spins, you can succeed in getting extra free spins, which can make you swim in free spins. Each reaction created within this feature will result in the win multiplier increasing by 1X, which in combination with many free spins can yield big wins.
It is an incredibly high potential maximum win of 72310X the bet that has been chosen and the features that Big Time Gaming has chosen to use within this slot are intertwined in a very elegant way. The mix of possible events is very good, where the experience in both the Free Spins feature and Megapays feature can be phenomenally wonderful with the gigantic potential to win big.
Millionaire Megapays is a slot that truly gives the player a chance to become a millionaire with the help of its cleverly added features.
