The Million Pound Drop was released by the Endemol Group in 2001 and is based on the popular TV games show. This instant win from 888 Games really is high paced: the player gets a certain amount of cash to play with depending on the wager amount and must place the money on various trap doors which might or might not open. If a door with the player’s money on it opens, that money is out of the game. However, if that door remains unopened, the money carries on into the second round and the player becomes closer to taking it away as prize money.
When starting the game, the player is presented with a number of options for setting up the game. Firstly, they must choose the number of trap doors they wish to play with. This number can be 2, 3 or 4 and there is a different risk level associated with each. The player must also select how many rounds they want the game to be. This can be set at anything from 2 to 5 and the more rounds there are, the more money will be given to the player at the start of the game. The final setting which must be chosen is the wager value. This can be anything from £0.50 up to £500, which offers something to suit all players risk levels and gives the high rollers a chance to go for the big money if desired. When playing at maximum level, with £500 wager and a 5 round game, there is a massive £200,000 possible jackpot.
There is also a bonus round in the game, where more than £150k is currently the jackpot level (and this number is rising). To play this bonus round, you need to collect 5 golden cash bundles. Once you have done that, you can enter the game and try to win the huge jackpot.
In this bonus, there are 8 rounds you must play through. The bonus follows the same format as the normal game, except there are 8 rounds to get through and your bundles cannot be split on different doors. All your money must be placed on one door and if it opens, they you’ve lost. There are 4 doors in the first 4 rounds, 3 in the next 3 rounds, and 2 in the final round. You can still win prizes if you don’t make it the whole way so start playing now!
