PAYTABLE FOR WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
Who wants to be a millionaire megaways™ is Big Time Gaming's most recent slot release, and the most anticipated game to hit the online market in 2018. This game show based slot has 6 reels and is the follow up to the highly popular Bonanza and Extra Chilli.
Staking options start out for as little as €0.20 a spin, and progress upwards steadily to suit all bankrolls before reaching the max bet of €20.
To hit all of the winning ways, you need each reel to hold its maximum amount of symbols. Reels 1 and 6 can both hold a maximum of 7 symbols, and reels 2 through to 5 can hold a maximum of 6 symbols, if you achieve that set up then the bonus reel at the bottom of the screen increases reels 2 - 5 an extra position to complete the equation, and as below in the picture you will have the 117,649 ways.

WINNING COMBINATIONS WILL BE REPLACED BY NEW SYMBOLS
NEW SYMBOLS DROPPING DOWN FROM A WINNING CASCADE ON MILLIONAIRE MEGAWAYS™
Cascading reels once again feature on Millionaire Megaways™, and these can produce some good sized wins, especially if you get the 117,649 ways to win.
For those of you who might by new to a slot like this, whenever you get a winning combination on the reels the winning symbols will be replaced by new symbols and give you further opportunities to win.
This can also lead to triggering the feature as you can end up with two scatter symbols on the reels and a win, from the resulting cascade the third scatter can drop in and result in a feature trigger.

3 OR MORE MILLIONAIRE SYMBOLS WILL TIGGER THE FEATURE ON MILLIONAIRE MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
8 FREE SPINS FOR A 3 SCATTER TRIGGER ON MILLIONAIRE MEGAWAYS™
To trigger the feature on Millionaire Megaways™ you need 3 or more of the millionaire symbols to land anywhere in view. If you get a basic trigger of 3 symbols you will be awarded 8 free spins, for every other symbol you have in view you will move 1 position up the free spins ladder.
WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE MEGAWAYS™ FREE SPINS GAMBLE
Big Time Gaming introduced the option to be able to gamble your free spins on their slot Extra Chilli, and players are once again given this opportunity in Millionaire Megaways™.
So for a basic trigger you will start at 8 free spins, the game will then randomly select one of the 3 lifeline options that you get in the tv gameshow. They are of course ask the audience, phone a friend, and 50/50.
You don't have to gamble, and just like the gameshow you can choose to walk away with your 8 free spins and start the bonus round, or you can try your luck and see how far you can get.
Players should note that the 10 free spins and the 20 free spins mark are both safety points, so if you do choose to gamble and reach either of these positions then you may as well carry on, as you cant drop down any further than those amounts.
Let's take a look at the lifelines and how they work.
ASK THE AUDIENCE LIFELINE
ASK THE AUDIENCE LIFELINE ON MILLIONAIRE MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
If you're randomly awarded ask the audience as your lifeline then you will be presented with a percentage chart that shows an amount for each answer. Sometimes these are a lot closer and you can have two or more answers around the same percentage mark.
phone a friend LIFELINE
PHONE A FRIEND LIFELINE ON MILLIONAIRE MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
The phone a friend lifeline will give you one answer with a percentage mark next to it. So it's up to you if you think that the amount is high enough to go with the decision. In the above picture the answer given was wrong.
50/50 LIFELINE ON MILLIONAIRE MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
If you're given the 50/50 lifeline then two of the wrong answers will be removed and you will be left with a 50/50 choice of which letter to pick.

EVERY WINNING CASCADE WILL INCREASE YOUR MULIPLIER BY X1 DURING THE FEATURE
MULTIPLIER INCREASING AFTER A WINNING COMBINATION
Once the excitement of the millionaire free spin gamble is over the feature will then begin. As with other slots a la Diamond Mine, and Buffalo Rising, you need to get as many winning cascades as possible. Every time you achieve one of these winning reactions then your win multiplier will increase by x1.
If you have a good run then this can of course reach a very high multiplying amount, and with a bit of luck you could be hitting a massive multiple of your stake. The free spins can be re-triggered during the feature by the millionaire symbols rolling in on the lower reel. This is the only place that these symbols can be found during the free spins. 3 millionaire symbols will award you 4 extra free spins, and 4 symbols will award you 8 extra free spins.
Players should note that unlike Bonanza & Extra Chill, Millionaire Megaways™ does like to drop in the full 117,649 ways to win during the feature, so with a big multiplier this could be huge!
WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE MEGAWAYS™ SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
Being the creator of the megaways™ mechanic it's always exciting to see a new slot released featuring this unique payline system from Big Time Gaming.
Millionaire Megaways™ is an interesting slot and the gamble feature is certainly something very different. It does seem like it could be very difficult to reach the top and achieve the 50 free spins, and you most certainly need nerves of steel to keep risking it the further up the ladder you get.
The best strategy I think when getting the percentage based answers is to just go with the highest amount, or favoured answer. You do have to be prepared for these to be wrong though, on several occasions we've had answers over 70% turn out to be wrong.
Are the answers luck or predetermined?
As a test, on the last feature I got I picked the lowest percent on ask the audience which was 1% whilst the highest was over 70%. I was wrong and the answer was indeed the highest of 70%, it could be argued that it was still predetermined and had I picked the 70% it could have then shown a different answer.
It will be an interesting time to see what slot players make of it.
