Monopoly is one of the all-time classic board games, loved by millions across the world. Most households in the country have probably owned Monopoly at one time or another, and there are probably more than a few slots fans who take it bit too seriously. If that sounds like you, then you are in luck! There is a large selection of Monopoly slot machines to play online including Monopoly Big Event, Epic Monopoly and Super Monopoly to name a few, however in this article, we are going to focus on the Monopoly slot from WMS.
The iconic theme, logo and symbols from the board game have made their way onto the reels, in this 5 reel, 20 payline slot. So expect to come across Rich Uncle Pennybags, your favourite pieces from the game including the car and the dog, and a couple of other recognisable symbols that make this feel like the real thing.
But instead of playing for Monopoly money, this game is for real. You can bet up to £500 a spin, with a return to player percentage of 96.00%. This is definitely towards the more generous end of the scale, and means the game is also good value in the long term, compared to some other slots.
WMS have done a good job with Monopoly slots, which is definitely an enjoyable game. It is as much fun as playing the real thing, and with the bonus features only adding to the action, there’s the potential for some decent wins.
Wild symbol: The wild symbol is fairly obvious to spot, and it works in the normal way – that is, as a wildcard, which stands in for anything you’re missing to complete a payline. If you happen to land three or more of the wilds on your reels on any given spin, you can also win a wilds bonus – up to 2000 coins for 5 symbols. The exception to rule here is that the wild won’t substitute for the scatter symbol, nor for the In Jail symbol.
Scatter symbol: The game’s main scatter symbol is the Big Monopoly Event logo. If three of these land on reels 1, 3 and 5, you’ve triggered the Big Monopoly Event – more on that to follow. If you land 4 or 5 of these symbols, you get added bonuses piling in with the Big Monopoly Event, all of which is usually pretty good news for your bankroll.
There’s another scatter symbol, the Big Bet symbol, which looks fairly similar. Following similar rules, turning up three on reels 1, 3 and 5, this allows you to trigger an alternative bonus round. Essentially the Big Bet is a chance to bet £20 or £30, in return for a number of guaranteed spins with an increasing multiplier.
The Jail Symbol: This is actually a bad symbol – you want to avoid this appearing during the Big Event bonus round. It invalidates the lowest value prize you could win, and doesn’t do any good whatsoever to your game. If you get stung by it, it feels similar to heading to jail in the board game – although it’s never great to lose, it feels like a good touch.
If you’re a fan of the board game this is a no brainer, and with any luck, you might win a few quid while you’re at it. Even if you’re not, you’ll still enjoy the bonus features, and the decent RTP percentage.
There’s not too much beyond the bonus rounds to sink your teeth into, but the jackpot is juicy enough. An extremely high RTP only adds to the allure. See if you can build a property empire and get Uncle Pennybags-rich, with Monopoly slots.
