How can I be a millionaire
TRUE MENTAL CHALLENGE
Let me begin by saying this is not a perfect game. On occasion the answer is wrong. Sometimes the questions are poorly phrased, missing words or misspelled. On occasion it has frozen up and not given me what I earned but the negatives are outweighed by the positives. First and foremost, it can be a free game. It has been for me. Close second is the fact that you are in control of your success or failure. The answers are factual not a computer generated spin. Close third and why I like this game is because it sharpens my memory and teaches me things I don’t know. SOME PLAYING TIPS: The game wants the “best” answer, not a perfect answer. This is an English language version so expect expressions and questions about all English speaking countries. if you are going to guess, go with your first choice. Your gut feeling is often due to information you absorbed at one time. Pay attention to the answer when you are wrong. This is how you learn and the questions will eventually repeat themselves if you play long enough.
I love this game. But I defer to the ‘waiting 4 unexpected update’ reviewer, since I cant get thru
Still waiting for the unexpected update, so thought I’d jump in on reviews. I love playing this game, but don’t enjoy losing half of what I spent when I beat my opponent. I continue after opponent loses, get the box, & if I don’t walk & miss next question I get the box but lose the kwan. What? And the others are right. You bust it to win, you get the $1M, but don’t make enough to play 2 8k games?!? Most of the experts don’t know the answer unless you already do. But biggest problem I have now...you don’t respond to your players to address their issues. It’s a programmed bot response. You don’t care about the people who are TRYING to enjoy this game. That makes YOU the loser. Buh-bye.
Thoughts on a Great game
I think this is a great game. It is challenging and fun. I wish a couple things were different however. First and biggest issue is that you CANNOT progress up the ladder without the help from lifeline cards, the 50:50 and the Ask the Audience as well as Ask the Experts. The expert cards are great and the game provides enough of them with the mystery boxes. However the lifeline cards are not provided as plentifully as you need them. You have to purchase them with gems. Gems are expensive to purchase. It would be nice if the developers who, I understand need purchases to keep the game going, reduced the cost of the gems which you absolutely have to have in order to progress up the ladder. The other thing is that if you beat your opponent going up the ladder and run out of lifelines, if you try answering your last question and miss it you drop down the ladder to wherever you beat your opponent. Annoying to have to choose not to answer the question and can walk away which you can do and get what you won on the previous rung. There are a couple other things but cost of the gems is really my biggest issue with what is otherwise a really great game.
Please End Demotions!
I thoroughly enjoy playing this game. I’ve only recently started actively trying to climb higher in the standings and levels. This takes a commitment of time and money. I’ve given both. I did not know all the rules. So, after working very hard to get to my next level, I was shocked to be demoted shortly thereafter, apparently for not maintaining a certain standing. This made me upset and angry, to the point that I almost quit playing. And when I look at the totals of those rated in the top 10, I wonder, do these people play 24 hours a day? Do they spend exorbitant amounts of money? Do they cheat? I am not willing to do any of those things. So, PLEASE, leave my level alone, since I worked hard to achieve that but will likely not be able to maintain my position. I realize that in the grand scheme of life, this is just a meaningless game. I play because it’s fun and keeps my brain active, especially during this quarantine craziness. I ask that you appreciate the effort players put in and respect that, by eliminating demotions. If not, I will take my money and effort elsewhere.
I really enjoy playing this game. It’s a fun game for the most part but there are a couple key issues that prevent me from giving a higher review. The first is how when you tie an opponent for the million dollar box...I get half of the prize. I think that if I answer all the questions right I should get the full million dollar prize and so should my opponent. It doesn’t make sense for both people to answer all questions correctly and not get the full prize. Second, I don’t like how the advancement process works. I have to finish in the top ten to get to the next level (silver I, II, III, etc.) okay so I get that. What I don’t like is how if I don’t finish in the top 70 I get demoted to the level I was previously on. It doesn’t make sense. Basically, I am getting penalized for either not having the time to play the game as much as other people do or I don’t spend enough money (I spend zero money on this game) to stay competitive with the players who either play all hours of the day or who spend actual money to advance in the game. I think if you don’t advance to the next tier, that you should just stay where you are and not get demoted. That is ridiculous. Third, I’m not a fan of how unreliable the common lifeline can be. How does an automated audience get a question wrong? Again, it doesn’t make sense. Like I said, I do like playing this game but the things listed above make it an okay game but not an amazing game.
Good but Needs improvement
Fun and good game, however there a few things that are not too cool. My biggest problem with this game is that you play against another person and you will get a bronze chest if you beat the other, which yay, but if you do beat them and keep going and get a question wrong well after your opponent is out you will only get the amount of money that you beat them at, this happened to me every time I did better than my opponent. What is the point of being better than someone if you can only make as much as the loser. 2nd problem is that you most definitely have to pay to play, you can play like 3/4 times a day without spending any real money, and they games cost 1k+ just to play one game. I know that most games now you have to pay to have extra chances and stuff in general, but for this you can hardly play at all without playing. There are other things that bother me about this game, and I’ve only had it for two days now, but these two things are my biggest complaints. I think that game is fun and good, but for me personally, if these two things aren’t fixed I will not be able to play this game and would not advise others as well.
Great fun, but frustrating for non-Europeans
Update: I see what others are saying about this game being rigged as are most game apps that have in-app purchases. Once you are out of lifelines and especially low on diamonds (which are needed to unlock the boxes you win that are full of goodies such as coins and lifelines) you will get many “oddball” questions. These are usually questions people in a specific profession or hobby would know, but most other people would not. You will keep losing coins and become stuck to wait many hours for one box to unlock or buy diamonds and coins. I have played this for about a month now and although it is fun and challenging, I would say about two-thirds of the questions are written by individuals from the UK or other parts of Europe. This gets especially frustrating when old sayings are brought up or slang terms are asked for. The lions share of sports questions are about soccer so be careful when answering questions about football - most of the time it is not American football. Is there an American version of this?
Fun new twist on a classic game
I have loved watching this game on TV since it came out. I’ve also played other versions of Millionaire. But this one has you playing against an opponent. It makes it extra exciting. So far I’m loving it. After playing this game for a week here is my updated review: the game still is fun, but it is losing its luster. Each time you get a certain number of wins you get put in a higher league. The only problem with this is when I have tried to play a game they have the matching me with people in a much higher league than I am. There is no way I could beat these people. And I don’t mean just a mild discrepancy I am in the second lowest league and they are matching me up consistently with those in the highest league. The developers need to make sure that the people that challenge each other are close to being in the same league, Otherwise it is really not a fair match. If this does not change I will delete this game because it is highly unfair and would force you to spend an in ordinate amount of money which I don’t have.
Disappointed in payout ratio
When I saw this game was super excited download it, but I am disappointed that I get 15 to 20 minutes of gameplay a day. Even with the mystery box that you can collect every three hours it is not pay out nearly enough to be able to enjoy this game too it’s fullest capability. UNLESS you spend money. I understand the logistics of the game. Its not worth playing when spend 1000 to 2000 on just ONE GAME and only receive half of that (at best) back for winning the match. I literally wait three hours to be able to play one to maybe two games and within 10 minutes if I just so happen to lose I have to wait another three hours just to play another 10 minutes. I know I can avoid that by spending money but with a game plan as it is it’s not worth me spending the two dollars to get 5000 coins so I can play for another 20 minutes that day. I personally wouldn’t advise this game to anybody unless the payout ratio is a little bit better. This game is starting to feel like a waste of space in my storage because I i’m not able to play it long enough to enjoy it before I run out of coins. But it is a great game and the user interface is very nice and the graphics are great and has lotta potential just for poor people like me it’s not worth keeping it on the phone or tablet.
2 main issues
1. Free ads are never available so you can never redeem the pittance that is the free rewards in the reward cinema section. Literally the ads are never available so that’s annoying and a whole component of the game you can’t use. 2. Even more annoying sometimes you lose even if you win. What I mean is for example it cost $500 to enter the competition but if your opponent loses before you make $500 you’re still losing because you’re only guaranteed to make as far as they reached unless you win it all (unreasonable). So if you beat your opponent at the $300 you “win” the round but you’re still out $200 cause it cost you $500 to get in. If you “win” you should at least break even. Stupid. There are only a few ways around this- one is a flag which they give you 5 at the start except NEVER tell you how to use it or what it’s for which caused me to lose them using them trying to figure out what they do (hold your spot after you’ve beat an opponent and passed their question rank). The only other way is to win every single round til you get to the million dollars. That’s it. If you answer 10 more questions after beating your opponent but don’t make it to the million you’ll be rewarded for none of it. If you beat your opponent and make it to the silver box you get silver box rewards but you still don’t get the M coins for all the questions you answered to get there. Very dumb. 🥴
I used to really loved this game until they changed the ask the expert lifeline. I went from having 45 experts to only being able to use 1 every now and then. Are you kidding?? Before you had a chance of making it to the million dollar question, now without the experts good luck getting to even a mid level question. Everyone is losing on the first 5-10 questions. Now it’s almost impossible to advance in levels and you blow through your coins so quickly. I think the change was another move to force players to buy coins, and like so many other formerly great apps, they went the micro transactions route to chase the dollar and force players to spend money. Now I don’t play nearly as much as I used to which means I never move up and can’t win any of the goal related experts, but also, what’s the point of collecting experts at all? If you can only use 1 or two whenever you get an expert lifeline token, you never need more than 10 since they refresh every 8 hours. The developers just destroyed their own game model. I used to play when there was a chance of maybe winning, and also to collect experts and advance levels. Now all those reasons are pointless since you can’t win, collecting experts is useless since you can never use them, and it takes forever to advance since you lose before you get to higher point questions. Nice job guys.
You tell me to contact you in my app - sorry, no can do because I deleted it! Address my issue here regarding the different orders of magnitude to play (thousands) and receive rewards to continue playing (hundreds) and I might get the app again. Ridiculous in so many ways! Every time I played I would run out of coins to allow me to play, because it’s 1000, 2000 or 4000 (thousands) coins to play and the rewards are all 100, 200, 500, etc. (hundreds...do y’all see the problem here?!). Lifelines are available to obtain for coins, but see above, because after you spend 1,000s to play you won’t have anything left to get them. Bottom line, every time I played I’d run out of enough coins to play another game or obtain lifelines, and opportunities to get more coins free are rigged to fail (the “loading” circle of death, then a message, “that ad isn’t available right now) forcing you to either pay money to get more, or quit playing for the day (yeah, OK, four hours, but I’m not going to sit there and watch the clock so I can play Millionaire again) and wait for more ads to get more, which are unreliable - in an obvious design to get you to “pay to play”. Here’s a solution to the whole problem - make the “cost” to play and the rewards the same level of magnitude - thousands OR hundreds, not thousands AND hundreds, respectively!!!
Shameless Cash Grab
This app is beyond frustrating. You're forced to sit through an ad after every single match. I'm fine with free to play apps selling things that let you progress faster, but not things that give paying players an unfair advantage (this app is the latter). The 1v1 style would be interesting, but players who spend money have a huge advantage. It's essentially impossible to unlock the better experts without paying real money, and those experts basically just give you the answer when you use the "Ask an Expert" lifeline (and there are no limits to the number of lifelines you can use, so paying players have way more of them and can use them to get the answer to almost any question they don't know). I don't know who comes up with the questions, but it's clear they have a very strong pro-Christian bias. About every 30th question is an extremely obscure question about Christian theology (I went to church and Sunday school until I was 18 and still don't know the answers to hardly any of these). Yet in all my time playing, I have come across 0 questions about Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, or any other modern religions. This could be a great trivia app if it didn't have ads or give paying players a hugely unfair advantage. If you're looking for a trivia app that won't drive you insane, look elsewhere.
Where are My Experts when I need them
I invested a lot of time playing this game in order to collect more experts until I got 68 of them. Now this new change limited the use of my experts when I need them and the only way to do them is to pay using the hard collected jewels. You even made it more difficult to earn jewels by raising the objective limits for goals to levels that are impossible to achieve. All this is geared to force players to pay money to buy more jewels. Guess what you greedy developers, this backfired big time and I am one of many that are quitting this game for good. I invested one year playing this to collect the experts and you just made them useless to get this many experts. And don’t tell me to reach out to you through the app using the contact button because you already know my opinion from here. Aren’t you one of the developers then you can easily relay this message to the rest :-( Update: I gave it some time so that they revert the experts usage to what it used to be, but they are refusing to listen to the many complaints that they have received about it. What a bunch of greedy people. I’m sure it will back fire in your face as you deserve. I’m deleting this app now as I don’t see these greedy developers listening to anybody :-(
