An anonymous Betfair Casino player has triggered a gigantic €1 million win on Big Time Gaming’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Megapays.
Last month, the lucky player triggered the €1,036,049.65 win on a bet of €0.70 at Betfair Casino. The gigantic win marks the first-ever seven-figure sum paid out by the slot since its launch a year ago.
The slot was developed by Big Time Gaming, a studio now under the ownership of Evolution, but was available at Betfair Casino via Relax Gaming’s Powered By Relax aggregation platform, which delivers a range of casino content to all of Relax Gaming’s partnered operators.
Big Time Gaming’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Megapays slot uses a 6×7 layout with 117,649 paylines, and the game has an RTP of 96.38%. The slot also has high variance, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over frequent small ones – great for long-term gamers.
The slot requires a bet of between £0.20 and £20 per spin, and symbols in the game include purple, red, blue, and green gems, along with the traditional A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9 symbols. There are also Wild symbols and Scatter Symbols that are used to trigger special features.
Speaking of special features, the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Megapays slot has tons of them. The game has Wild symbols that substitute for other symbols to help create wins, Scatter symbols that trigger the game’s free spins mode with eight spins and an unlimited win multiplier.
The Scatter symbols can also be used to trigger the Hot Seat Free Spins Gamble feature, which allows players to climb a ladder and win up to 50 free spins by predicting the outcome of each question. Like with the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire show, the feature has lifelines to help players.
Finally, the slot is based on the MegaWays engine, which means the number of paylines and symbols available change with each spin. It also includes large Megapays symbols and win reactions where winning symbols are replaced by new symbols that can trigger additional wins.
Nick Robinson, the CEO of Big Time Gaming, said in a statement on the win: “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, the Chief Product Officer at Relax Gaming, added: “It’s always a pleasure to drive differentiation by collaborating on industry-defining games and mechanics. It’s wonderful to hear about the 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.”
