Playtech’s new game show experience, named ‘The Money Drop Live’ is based on a popular Banijay-owned TV show brand and forms part of the studio’s flourishing live gameshow catalogue.
The Money Drop Live gameshow is a copy of the UK TV series hosted by Davina McCall, The Million Pound Drop, which was eventually renamed the £100K Drop. The show's format has been successfully adapted in more than 50 countries, making the game an instantly recognizable property in markets across the globe.
This latest launch came about thanks to Playtech’s enduring association with Banijay Brands and is a fitting follow-up to the release of Deal or No Deal, The Big Draw in 2020.
The game offers a range of multipliers worth up to 5000x and features a live dealer who spins a wheel of chance. Multipliers above 8x activate Drop Zones and as per the original show format, you can decide how to split your money for the best possible win.
Opening the Drop Zones means that one of them will always offer safe, guaranteed winnings and the wheel stops on 8x it activates the Quick Drop game. This will trigger a major “all or nothing” gamble feature and you can also land multiplier-boosted wins in the Card Clash bonus game.
Kevin Kilminster, the Head of Innovation at Playtech Live said,
“The Money Drop Live has everything; an exciting, engaging format, a brand with international appeal, and the kind of experience-led gameplay that typifies Playtech Live Casino. We’ve seen a major increase in the popularity of game show-style formats and presentation in recent years, and our collaboration with Banijay Brands – a global leader in this field – creates a fantastic opportunity to bring the excitement of some of the world’s best-loved brands to Live Gaming.”
Lex Scott, the Commercial Director of Gaming & Gambling at Banijay Brands added,
“We are delighted to further our partnership with Playtech to deliver more great gaming from Banijay’s extensive catalogue of acclaimed formats. The Money Drop is a globally recognised brand and by combining the iconic gameplay with Playtech’s innovative live series, we are delivering players a world-class live gaming experience.”
