Combinations with denominations are formed from 3-6 pictures, with thematic symbols – from 2-6 pictures. They are counted from left to right, starting from the last reel.

Bonus Symbols

Special symbols are not paid, but activate additional options:

  1. Wild is a question mark. Replaces any symbol on the playing field except for the scatter.
  2. Scatter is the logo of the TV show. Three symbols trigger 8 free spins and the Hot Seat Free Spin Gamble option.

When testing wilds fall out often. Free spins were knocked out already on the 20th spin.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Bonus Game

The prize round is built like a TV show. You can try to win extra spins or 8 base spins. In the bonus game, you need to answer 12 questions. The second, seventh and twelfth wins are fireproof.

You are asked to choose one of 4 answers. The player has:

  • friend’s hint;
  • 50/50;
  • hall help.

Hints can only be used once. The results are generated by RNG. If the player guessed the correct answer, he receives additional free spins, can try his hand again or pick up bonus spins.

If the answer is incorrect, the bonus round ends and the base game starts again. The maximum you can get in Hot Seat Free Spin Gamble is 50 free spins. But the risk of losing the basic 8 spins received in the base game is high.

During free spins, win multipliers appear. The appearance of 3-4 scatters on extra reels during this period will activate another 4-8 free spins.
