Monopoly has been one of the most popular and cherished games of our childhood Even today, it brings back fond memories of our childhood and does produce a wry smile on our face when we talk of a monopoly. IGT, one of the key providers in the online slot universe has been business-minded enough to blend the nostalgia of childhood with the sudden adrenaline rush of the slot machines and has come up with the Monopoly Slots, where the players can wager and win real money in casinos. With multiple variations like Movers & Shakers, Once Around, Advance to Boardwalk, Monopoly Plus, Here and Now, Pass Go and Chairman of the Board, Monopoly stands out in the world of online slots and is becoming a popular slot by the day.
There is not much of a difference between the original board game and the Monopoly slot machine that has been designed by IGT. The classic square board with the properties and elements associated with the board game augmented by the vibrant colors and innovative animations by IGT will pleasantly surprise players. This is a 5-reel 20-pay-line slot game where the bet value ranges from 0.2 to 500 while the coin value ranges from 0.01 to 25 currency units.
Being designed on the lines of the Classic Monopoly game published by the Parker Brothers, there are no separate wild or scatter symbols like most of the slots that we have reviewed over time. Instead, it features a unique bonus game – Mystery Wild Bonus available on the Monopoly Plus game and is IGT’s tribute to the legendary board game as the settings of the game assures a trip back to the childhood. This random bonus is triggered when the player fails to land on any of the Board Bonus, or Logo symbols on any of the reels.
Instead, Mr. Monopoly appears on the screen and is seen jumping across reels until and random wild symbol is chosen thus increasing the chances of forging a winning combination. However, even after a winning combination is generated, Mr. Monopoly can dance around the reels throwing the entire screen wild, thereby upping the ante for huge wins for the players.
One of the most intriguing features of the Monopoly Slots is the Board Bonus feature. This gets triggered when the player lands up to the Board Bonus icons on the first, third and the fifth reels and the slot asks the players to choose one of the icons to reveal the number of ‘rolls’ that has been won. The player then needs to click on the “Roll” button and embark on the journey of winning a handsome amount on the Monopoly slot through the very enticing GO Bonus feature. Apart from the Board Bonus Features, Monopoly slots does give the players to win a considerable amount of money if they happen to land up the traditional Monopoly slots on the screen. These include Property Bonus, Utility Bonus, Community Chest Bonus, Railroad Bonus, Go To Jail, Jail Bonus, Free Parking Bonus, Income Tax, Just Visiting, Super Tax, GO Bonus.
To be honest, Monopoly Slots is a decent slot in that holds its forte against its more illustrious components despite not matching in terms of the winning amount, owing to its nostalgic background and its quirky bonus feature.
