Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Slingo Review
When Jeremy Clarkson brought back popular TV quiz show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, that signaled the arrival of new gambling products. WWTBAM has already been the theme of a bingo room on Virtue Fusion, but these days it's more well known as a Megaways slot and a version of Slingo. It's Slingo derivation is a TV themed version of the slots-bingo-instant Slingo Reveal. Get yuor fingers ready and let's take a closer look.
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Slingo is an enhanced version of the popular base game. Set on a blue background, the game is played on a 5x5 grid of numbers. The numbers range from 1 to 75. To the right of the Slingo grid is a table of familiar WWTBAM icons - 50:50, phone a friend, Ask The Audience and WWTBAM logo. Note that in this version of Slingo you only get 9 spins as opposed to 11 in other games.
How To Play Slingo WWTBAM
As ever, the aim of the Slingo game is to get a line - horizontal, vertical or diagonal - of five numbers. Unlike the usual game a Slingo line represents a icon instead of a win line. When a line is completed an icon is revealed and marked off on the game card to the right. The aim is to get three of a kind so that you win the prize indicated. These range from 50p to £10,0000 based on a £1 stake. It's possible to win with multiple sets of three icons.
Wagering on WWTBAM Slingo starts at £1 a turn - that's 10x more expensive than if you chose to play Slingo Reveal. The wager can be increased up to a maximum of £10 (Slingo.com). The maximum wager may vary from site to site. There is no Autoplay but like other Slingo games this one also allows you to wager on. Basically once your turn has finished - and any free rounds played - you'll be invited to play on for a given price and potential win. We advise against this option as wins are rare!
As well as only offering 9 spins in the base game, WWTBAM Slingo is different in other ways to other versions of the game. For example there are no super wilds! There are jokers - or wilds - but their position is predetermined. This means that you have no say in which number to choose. This takes out the interactivity of the game, although it's not a dealbreaker.
The big question is can you become a millionaire by playing WWTBAM Slingo? Well yes you can - but you're going to need some serious luck and planetary alignment on your side. A x100,000 your initial wager prize awaits if you get a full house of Slingos within 7 turns. In other words you need to get 25 numbers from a set of 35. To win a million quid you'll need to wager the maximum £10!
WWTBAM Slingo adds another dimension to the popular game. However the instant win element does mean that wins are much harder to come by. It does feel that this, like many other versions of the game, are designed to get you to wager on to try and win. Oddly, although this is a WWTBAM version of Slingo Reveal we actually enjoyed playing this more than the fruity game. That could come down to the theme which does include the familiar TV show music.
The highlight of WWTBAM Slingo has to be the chance to actually become a millionaire. Just remember that the odds aren't in your favour and there's probably more chance of hell freezing over. However on a positive note you don't have to answer any questions and there's no sign of Jeremy Clarkson.
