Have you ever played Big Time Gaming’s famous Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megapays? If you haven’t yet, you’re about to be tempted to!
Why? Because one lucky player of the game is now a millionaire, just like in the show which inspired it. The player has hit the jackpot and won an incredible €1,036,049.65 with only a €0.70 bet. In case you’re wondering, that’s 1,480,000 times return on investment for the winner, who used Betfair Casino, a platform by Relax, to play the slot.
This was the first time that the game has paid out a seven-figure amount, since it was released at the end of last year.
Nick Robinson, BTG CEO said:
"It was only a matter of time before Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megapays created a real millionaire and it was a nice touch that it came bang on the anniversary of the game’s release. This game has got so many plaudits and won so many fans over the past 12 months, and we’re delighted that the life of one of those fans has been changed forever.”
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer at Relax Gaming, said:
“It’s always a pleasure to drive differentiation by collaborating on industry-defining games and mechanics. It’s wonderful to hear about people who then benefit massively from the titles we bring to market. We hope the recent Who Wants to be a Millionaire Megapays winner enjoys this life-changing sum of money to the fullest and that others continue to appreciate the added excitement this jackpot brings.”
The BTG slot machine was inspired by the British television quiz known as "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?". The well-known quiz is then brought to the reels along with the famous Big Time Gaming mechanic: the "Megaways".
The Big Time Gaming slot machine, in addition to the classic functions of the basic game, can also get free spins with an unlimited win multiplier, while, if you play the Hot Chair you can win up to 50 free spins! What's more, with Megaways, every win triggers a reaction.
Not sure what answer to give? Use the help of the public, ask for help at home, or try to eliminate the most unlikely answers, with 50:50! To become a competitor of this casino version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire", the minimum bet is €0.2, while the maximum is €10.
When you win, a reaction is triggered in which the winning symbols are replaced by others that descend from the top in the case of the normal reels, while they come from the right on the extra one. This is not a progressive jackpot slot machine. The game's RTP is 96.27%, but with 117,649 ways to win.
Each win corresponds to a reaction, which sees fireworks covering the positions in which the symbols are replaced. The graphics and sounds faithfully reproduce those of the TV quiz.
