Released in 2018, Who Wants to be a Millionaire Mystery Box slot is a sequel of the hugely successful Who Wants to Be a Millionaire slot. You won’t often hear about sequels of slot games, but Big Time Gaming throws in a different feel to make this slot even better than its predecessor.
It still comes with the same background which is the main stage of the TV quiz show, however, the setup is a lot different. Rather than a Megaways slot with hundreds of thousands of Paylines, Who Wants to be a Millionaire Mystery Box slot is a 5-reel, 3-row slot with just 243 ways to make winning combinations.
The max payout is also set at 12,000x your bet, a lot lower than the original but you’d still get a good number of bonuses including free spins, wilds, and a mystery box feature.
How to play
Stakes on the slot are set as low as 0.10 per spin but high rollers can make a bet of 40 per spin. Four coloured gemstones of purple, green, blue, and red act as the high paying symbols of the game.
The purple symbols will pay out the best for five matching symbols on an active Payline with up 25x your stake. It is also the only symbol that will pay for 2 on a Payline in the base game. There are also card symbols but they offer lower payouts than the gems.
Who Wants to be a Millionaire Mystery Box Slot Special Features
The games wild will substitute for all the standard symbols on the reels but it is only limited to reels two, three, and four.
If you’re able to trigger a win with a wild as a part of the winning combination a 2x multiplier will be applied to your win. The Millionaire logo acts as the scatter of the game and as usual, it will trigger the free spins feature.
The Mystery Box feature can be landed on the game’s three middle reels. When it does, it will help create winning combinations by changing into any symbol on the reels including the wild and scatter.
Free Spins and Gamble Feature
Three or more scatters anywhere on the grid will trigger the free spins feature. Players can get as many as 20 free turns with a 2x multiplier on every win.
Every extra scatter landed on the reels will add a multiplier and a single free spin to your total. 3 extra free spins are awarded when you get to steps 4, 8, and 12 of the multiplier ladder. If you’re able to get to the top, you can claim a multiplier of up to 50x.
Who Wants to be a Millionaire Mystery Box slot entices players with a max payout of 12,000x the bet, however, punters won’t get any jackpot.
Return to Player
This slot offers great promise with a Return to Player (RTP) of 96.36%.
If you found the original Megaways slot too tough to handle, this standard sequel could help you achieve huge wins without much difficulty.
Its generous bonuses, free spins, and high volatility are some good features that would attract any slot lover, however, its 12,000x the stake max payout is the best incentive it offers.
