It was back in September 2020 when Big Time Gaming first released Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megapays slot. While the TV game show-themed online slot became an instant hit and paid out big prizes, it was only when a full year has passed that it made one lucky player a million dollars richer - making it the first €1 million prize ever to be paid out in this slot game's history.
$1M Prize from a €0.70 Spin
The player decided to play at an online casino that offers many game developers that included Big Time Gaming. They wagered a humble €0.70 (around $0.80) and managed to hit the jackpot prize worth €1,036,049.64 (around $1.2 million)! This is indeed a very huge return on a super small investment, and with this incredible win the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megapays slot will definitely become even more popular than ever!
The slot game's Megapays system is actually a trademark of Relax Gaming, while the jackpot system is global, dropping wins more frequently which gives players more chances to win. The system houses four jackpots: the Mini, Midi, Major and Mega. Each one is progressive, so they continue to grow as players keep on spinning its reels.
Big Time Gaming Founder and CEO Nik Robinson said, "It was only a matter of time before Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megapays created a real millionaire and it was a nice touch that it came bang on the anniversary of the game's release. This game has got so many plaudits and won so many fans over the past 12 months, and we're delighted that the life of one of those fans has been changed forever."
Relax Gaming Chief Product Officer Simon Hammon said, "It's always a pleasure to drive differentiation by collaborating on industry-defining games and mechanics. It's wonderful to hear about people who then benefit massively from the titles we bring to market. We hope the recent Who Wants to be a Millionaire Megapays winner enjoys this life-changing sum of money to the fullest and that others continue to appreciate the added excitement this jackpot brings."
