Are you ready for the sequel to the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Megaways slot from Big Time Gaming? Millionaire Mystery Box is going to hit the casino lobby exclusively at Rizk Casino on 6th November 2019. Although it is steering away from the Megaways engine, it nonetheless comes with a win potential of up to 12,000 times your bet. Multiplier Wilds, Mystery Box symbols, a Gamble feature and a free spins with win multipliers of up to x50 will make sure that the Millionaire reel show will be memorable as ever.
Millionaire Mystery Box is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 243 ways to win. Pays are awarded for three to five matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only. Your next attempt at climbing the show ladder on desktop or mobile starts at 0.20 and peaks at 100 credits. The game has medium variance with an RTP of 96.642%.
The backdrop simulating the stage set of the TV show has remained unchanged from the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Megaways game and is still as impressive as ever, simply because it includes the lighting and sounds that many of us who regularly watched the show grew accustomed to. Spotlights similar to those on stage illuminate the game window, adapting to the colour of the pay symbol in a winning combo. A soundtrack almost identical to the original is exactly synchronized to the action on the reels.
BTG has also kept to its well-known pay symbol set, starting with the card royals from 9 through to A at the low end, 0.6x to 1x your bet for a single five of a kind They are followed by gems in green, blue, red and purple colours. Hit five across the reels to win 2x to 25x your stake.
A rainbow-coloured icon marked with x2 is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two, three and four only and substituting for all regular symbols. More than one wild across the reels will be multiplied by each other with two wilds giving you an x4 and three an x8 win multiplier for the base game. An icon marked with a question mark is the mystery box, appearing similar to the wild on the centre reels only. The show logo acts as the scatter, with minimum three needed to trigger the free spins.
Being devoid of the Megaways game engine that surprises us with extra symbols in the horizontal row, the sequel must rely on other features to keep us on our toes. We mentioned already the Multiplier Wild which can lead to win multipliers of up to x8 in the base game but there is of course much more than that. Keep on reading to find out.
As the name suggests, Mystery Box symbols can land on any spin on reels two, three and four. All in view will reveal a common symbol including wilds or scatters once the reels have stopped.
The game lost not just the Megaways engine but also the gamble ladder where you could aim to win more free spins. However, gamble you still can as every win is leading to the Gamble feature where you are offered a 50:50 chance for double or nothing. Do it as often as you like until it hits the limit but with some caution as losing sizeable win multiple times in a row can diminish your balance rather quick.
The main event on Millionaire Mystery Box is triggered when you hit three or more show logo scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin. The scenery will change for the Free Spins feature with a ladder similar to the Megaways game appearing, only that now it contains 12 levels with progressive win multipliers of up to x50. Your starting level and multiplier are determined by the number of scatters on the triggering spin.
Every scatter landing on a free spin will advance you by one level, increasing the win multiplier by x1 up to x9. From there one, the steps are x12, x15, x30 and finally x50. Any multiplier wild landing on a free spin will be multiplied by the active free spins multiplier, potentially leading to insane multipliers. You will also be awarded +1 free spin for each level, except for levels 4, 8 and 12 where +3 free spins are added. Once the maximum multiplier is reached, you will get +1 free spin for each scatter until the feature ends.
Well, here we go, the immensely popular TV show just keeps giving and Big Time Gaming are probably the best in creating time and again slots with surprising twists and features. No doubt, Millionaire Mystery Box will find its fans as well just like all other slots from BTG. It will be interesting to see if it can beat its Megaways sibling in the rankings.
Other than that, the slot looks good and has ample features to keep us slot nerds well entertained while we are chasing the huge maximum win potential of 12,000 times the bet. No doubt, many will do and very few will have the honour to score it. We will surely be part of the chasing pack once the slot goes live at Rizk Casino on 6th November 2019.
