Playtech has done the much-anticipated move: it has created a Live Roulette version of one of the most popular TV gameshows, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?!
The developer announced the launch of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Live Roulette on the 14th of December, so the game has already been live for 3 days across all Playtech-powered online casinos. Check it out!
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Live Roulette Goes Live!
Following the signing of a five-year partnership with Sony Pictures Television earlier this year, Playtech has finally presented the much-awaited Live Casino game, inspired by one of the world’s most popular TV gameshows, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?.
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Live Roulette was launched three days ago, on the 14th of December, just in time for the holidays, and in a period when the popular, award-winning brand celebrated its 20th anniversary. Sony Pictures Television’s format has been adapted in over 120 countries worldwide, and it is definitely one of the most well-known TV gameshows out there. And Playtech has created the new game in close relationship with SPT’s team.
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Live Roulette is the latest Live Game Show to be launched by the developer in its fast-growing product vertical, Live Casino, but brace yourself, as Playtech has announced that it will be the first of three game launches!
It is a game that brings together the popular TV gameshow brand with Playtech’s highly innovative gameplay experience, which includes many of the classic features from the legendary TV gameshow, such as Ask the Audience and the epic 50/50, plus an added feature Ask the Host (instead of Ask a Friend)! With this feature, the host can help the player by removing incorrect answers based on the level of the question. As you can see, all of these features still carry the logic and spirit of the TV gameshow, even though adapted for the game.
The best part is, you don’t have to have an active bet in the game to play along. You can still participate and play for fun by guessing the outcome in the Millionaire Round! Therefore, the game really delivers a unique immersive experience for all of you!
Statements by the Two Partners
Sony Pictures Television’s Commercial Director, Interactive, Western Europe, Stephan Zigg, said that Playtech was the industry leader in creating the most innovative online gambling experiences so they were all very excited to see the new game launched across its network. Zigg said they were looking forward to continuing to work with the developer’s team on the next two engaging new games in the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? series.
Playtech Live’s CEO, Edo Haitin, added that everyone at the studio was committed to delivering the best possible entertainment experience, so they absolutely loved the chance to work with the popular brand and they were sure players would enjoy the unique experience of the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? brand while playing the roulette game. Haitin added that he was extremely proud of how Playtech’s team have created the game with cutting-edge technology in a world-class interactive studio, combining outstanding tech, the much-loved brand and an exciting Live gameshow experience.
