Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Slot
The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire online slot is a 5-reel, 20 pay line slot game from Ash Gaming. The game is of course centred around the quiz show of the same name, created by Celador in the UK. The game began on ITV in 1998, and ended sixteen years later with every episode having been hosted by Chris 'We Don't Want To Give You That' Tarrant. The show became a massive hit, with versions springing up in all manner of countries around the world. It also was the basis for the book 'Q&A' which inspired the Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire in 2008.
In the slot version of the game you pick your stake per line of between 0.01 and 25.00, and the number of lines you want in play from 1 to 20. The symbols are all graphics associated with the game. To win a prize, you need to land at least three identical symbols in sequence from the left hand reel.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts range from your bet-per-line for three cheques, to 250x for three 'Question Screen' symbols.
The 'Ask the Audience' symbol acts as the 'Wild' symbol and substitutes for all other symbols aside from the three 'Scatter' symbols. Each scatter symbol triggers a bonus game:
Lifeline Bonus – Triggered by three 'Lifeline symbols. Select one of the Lifeline Bonus symbols, which will reveal a number of free spins you're then awarded with the symbol becoming a 'Sticky Wild'.
Players Choice – Triggered by three 'Players Choice' symbols. You get to choose one of the Players Choice symbols you landed. You're then awarded the cash amount revealed by that symbol.
Jackpot Ladder – Triggered by three 'Jackpot Ladder' symbols. In this game you attempt to climb the cash ladder all the way up to the jackpot level 15. You're awarded a number of free advances, and then the question screen appears with four options, each of which will be 'Collect', 'Advance' or 'Mystery'. You hit play and one of the 'answers' is randomly selected. Collect ends the game, and advance moves you one rung up the ladder. Mystery creates a spinner which can either be 'collect' or any number of 'advances'.
The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire online slot game is genuinely exciting, with the sound FX and music from the quiz show helping to fuel the tension. If you're lucky enough to land a bonus game, they add another dimension, and the Jackpot Ladder is nerve-shredding. The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire slot is definite worth a few spins.
