BTG’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire casino game coming to SG and Microgaming casinos.
The annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E) is coming to Las Vegas next month. A hoard of games creators, software vendors, land-based and iGaming operators, payment companies, affiliates and others are gearing up for the big event. Among them is Big Time Gaming (BTG), an innovative digital slots creator that’s sure to make a lasting impression.
BTG will be showing off a new mobile casino game that everyone’s bound to recognize. The announcement just came down this morning that BTG has secured a licensing agreement with Sony Pictures Television. Their task—to create a mobile casino game of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. The software group’s design crew will be hard at work this month, on a mission to debut the new game at G2E Las Vegas in October.
BTG CEO Nik Robinson comments:
“We are delighted to have been awarded the licence for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? and we are extremely proud of our first game offering in a series of slots with the brand’s key identity at the heart.”
He is especially proud that BTG got the nod from Sony, when there were so many other competitors out there worthy of the licence. “Sony’s confidence in our ability to do the brand justice strengthens our market-leading position,” says Robinson.
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Casino Game
This marks the first time Sony Pictures is teaming up with any iGaming software group to reinvent its famous Millionaire game show as a real money online gambling game. BTG is already working on the project, and will debut the game one month from now. G2E Las Vegas takes place from October 8-11 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.
Following its debut, BTG is already providing a launch date for the highly anticipated mobile casino game. The new Who Want to Be a Millionaire Slot will go live on November 18, 2018. Not every operator will have access to it, though.
Thanks to a mutually beneficial exclusivity contract, for a short time, it will only be available at LeoVegas Casino. Then, the game will undergo simultaneous, full-scale release at all Scientific Games (SG) and Microgaming Quickfire-powered online casinos.
According to BTG, the final release will be “the largest network slot release in the history of iGaming.”
Millionaire Slot to Feature BTG’s Patent Megaways
BTG describes its trademark Megaways game mechanic as, “a random reel modifier system that allows any given spin to produce a different number of symbols across the reels, allowing players to experience a totally different game with every spin.”
The Megaways feature first appeared in the 2016 Dragon Born Slot, introducing a phenomenal 117,649 ways to win. It was an instant hit with players. BTG has been incorporating the mechanic into many of its games since, including recent Extra Chilli and Bonanza slots.
Now, it’s guaranteed to appear in the upcoming Who Wants to Be a Millionaire casino game. Robinson promises it “will showcase our latest innovations when it comes to math and game mechanics, as well as the most mind-blowing graphics we have created to date.”
