Million Pound Drop Live
Million Pound Drop Live is a hugely successful British game show. Played by pairs of contestants, the concept of the show is to wager one million pounds on eight multiple-choice questions. Contestants do have to bet all of their money each round, but they can hedge their bets by wagering on multiple answers. This gives the game a degree of strategy beyond just a basic trivia setup.
The game uses a standard slot setup: 5 reels and 20 paylines. The minimum bet is £0.01 and the maximum is £500. The basic symbols are A, K, Q and J as well as cash bundles of various sizes and colors. The goal is to achieve a winning combination of those symbols. There is also a range of special symbols, which make the game fun and unique, and we’ll discuss them in more detail below.
Million Pound Drop is a Flash-based game. It’s not particularly demanding based on modern standards, but it will run sluggishly on older machines. To play, even free, you’ll need an account, but that account costs nothing and has no obligation.
Silver Bars — Wild
The silver bar symbol is the basic wild symbol, and it can take the place of any other symbol. Alongside four aces, the silver bard is another ace, and alongside three aces and a queen, it serves as another queen to form a full house.
Gold Bars — Exploding Wild
Gold bars behave like silver bars, but they also “explode.” When the board settles, the gold bar randomly selects four other non-wild symbols and turns them into wilds. This increases your win odds dramatically, and when you see a gold wild, it almost guarantees you’ll walk away with something.
Padlocks — Cash Catch Bonus Game
The padlock symbol kicks off the Cash Catch bonus game when it appears on reel 2, 3 and 4. Just like the TV show, the Cash Catch drops money bundles down a tube, and you need to catch them, which you do by clicking on them with the mouse. Each time you catch a bundle, you win free spins and multipliers.
Drop Symbols — Money Drop Bonus Game
The best feature of the game is the Money Drop, and you reach that bonus level by hitting a Money Drop symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. Like the TV show, the game is eight rounds and uses trapdoors, and your goal is to get through all eight rounds with as much money as possible.
