Visiware, a publisher of TV game services, has released the game “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” for Bouygues Telecom’s Bbox. This latest release is in line with Visiware’s strategy of making the game available through as many pay-TV or OTT operators as possible worldwide; the game is already available through other operators and partners.
The game licensed by Sony Pictures Television features over 5,000 questions in a faithful reproduction of the TV game show. Each player is given a series of 12 multiple-choice questions that must be answered in order to reach the fictitious sum of 1,000,000€. For each question, the player has 15 seconds to answer, and three lifelines: Ask The Audience, Phone-A-Friend, and 50:50. ”Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” adds to Playin’TV’s current offer of 26 games already available on the Playin’TV services, developed and published by Visiware. Since 2011, for €5 per month viewers can play with no limit, participate in regularly organised competitions and discover a new game each month.
The game is available to subscribers to the Numericable and Bouygues Telecom networks in France, to people with a Samsung France television, via the Dish network in the US and Videotron in Canada.
