If you’re not familiar with Endemol’s popular Million Pound Drop TV game show, contestants working in pairs are given one million pounds in £50 notes at the start of the show, banded in 40 bundles of £25,000. They must then answer eight questions on a range of topics in an effort to keep as much of their money as possible. For every question they get wrong, money is taken away. Lose the lot and you’re on your way home with your tail between your legs.
The show is now a hit worldwide, of course, so it was only a matter of time before slot developer Endemol Games converted their international hit into a 5 reel, 20 pay-line online video slot. Luckily, they’ve packed the slot with enough bonuses to make it feel like you’re on the show itself.
The reels are full of images from the show, including the show’s logo, wads of cash, a celebrating contestant, 10-through-Ace symbols and Bar symbols. The Wild symbol substitutes for all regular symbols other than the game’s bonuses plus the Golden Wild symbol. That Golden Wild, when appearing on reel 3, turns four other symbols on the reels Wild too.
Click to Win the Cash in the Security Pass Bonus
The bonus rounds are cracking in this game. First is the Security Pass game, triggered by three Security Pass Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4. You’ll be transported to the Money Drop cylinder from the show, with bundles of cash falling from the sky. Click on as many as you can to earn yourself as many free spins as you can, together with a multiplier. This can really accumulate into tonnes of free spins, and the Golden Wilds also count during those freebies.
Can You Beat the Drop to Win Prizes?
Three game logo symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 triggers the Money Drop Bonus. You’ll get to play eight rounds of the game, first betting some of your cash on a series of four trapdoors, then three trapdoors, and finally two trapdoors. Once the cash is placed, you click on ‘Drop’ to see which trapdoors will open. Choose poorly and your cash is gone. Choose well, however, and you will accumulate more winnings. As in the TV show, the aim is to keep as much cash as possible at the end of each round.
Endemol have the luxury of owning the rights to the shows they’re converting into online slots, and Million Pound Drop is the latest in a line of successful adaptations. Check out Catchphrase, the 1980s retro slot from the same developer if you want another slice of TV game show excitement.
