Who Wants to be a Millionaire Megapays Pays Out Over €1M

By Simon Wright, Last updated Jun 30, 2023

The Big Time Gaming casino game Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megapays is now a bona fide millionaire maker, just like the iconic game show that inspired it.

One lucky player has hit the jackpot — and then some — winning an earth-shattering €1,036,049.65 from a bet of just €0.70. That’s a 1,480,000 per cent return on investment for the winner, who was playing the slot at Betfair Casino via the Powered By Relax platform.

It marks the first time the game has paid out a seven-figure sum in the 12 months since its release in September 2020.

Who Wants to be a Millionaire Megapays™ captures all the edge-of-the-seat drama of the TV show with the addition of BTG’s unique, patented Megapays™ system, which is exclusive to Relax Gaming. This is a game-changing global jackpot system that drops more frequently, affording more opportunities for players to win.

It offers four Megapays™ Jackpots: Mini, Midi, Major and Mega. All are progressive, which means every time a bet is made a portion of bet is added to each jackpot. The slot includes the ability to gamble the total free spin win, putting the player right in the gameshow’s hot seat, ensuring they can enjoy plenty of fast-paced action.

Nick Robinson, BTG CEO 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.”

Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer at Relax Gaming, 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.”
