Picture this: You’re cruising in your BMW or MINI, and suddenly, you’re not just driving; you’re in the hot seat, ready to tackle trivia questions that could make you a millionaire. Yes, you heard that right, the iconic “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” is coming to your BMW, and it’s brought to you by none other than gaming platform developer AirConsole.
