March 29th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Virgin Casino recently went live with the “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” online slot game. Electracade developed the software of this game while Sony currently owns the rights to the show. The popularity of this game show is evident by the 118 countries across the globe that has purchased a license for it. Online players who have seen the show will feel extremely comfortable with the gameplay and environment.

In the background of the reels, players will find a deep blue color that encompasses the game show. All symbols are graphics from the television show. For instance, one symbol is a multiple-choice question in which the player must select the correct answer. Others include:

  • The results of the audience poll
  • The logo of the game show
  • The check given to the winner
  • English Pound
  • Contestant in front of the computer screen
  • The hot seat
  • Jackpot Ladder symbol

Players will be pleased to find that this game is rich in bonus features. One such extra is entitled, “Jackpot Ladder Bonus.” On the television show, the Jackpot Ladder tracks the progress of the participant. This bonus can be activated by three or more Jackpot Ladder symbols on any reels. The actual game gives players three opportunities to climb to the next ladder and win the prize that appears. If the player fails, one lifeline is deducted. If the player wins, the value is credited to their account.

Another feature is the Lifeline Bonus which is a free spins round triggered by three or more Lifeline symbols emerging at any location on the reels. These lifelines are similar to those on the show and consist of Call-a-Friend, Audience Poll and Fifty-Fifty. Additionally, the free spins can be retriggered from within the game.

The final bonus game is known as the “Players Choice Bonus” and can be accessed by hitting three or more Players Choice symbols across any of the reels. To disclose the bonus award, players must select one of the symbols on the reels.

Although Virgin Casino is fueled by WagerWorks, it utilizes slot gaming software from many different developers giving players a variety of games. Who Wants to be a Millionaire is one example of this policy. The actual game is almost an exact replica of the television show so those who tune-in each week will be pleasantly surprised by this slot game.
