Monopoly Megaways Slot Review
Monopoly is the exciting game adored by everyone everywhere that involves property management, financial ruin and repeated bouts of incarceration. Is there anyone who hasn’t had a Christmas ruined by family fall outs over this classic board game?
Well, at least by playing this version of Monopoly you’ll be playing with yourself, so if you do fall out with yourself you’ve only yourself to blame!
This Big Time Gaming slot was released in December 2019 and is the latest title in their Megaways range. As with all BTG’s Megaways slots, this slot has six reels, although the make-up of each reel is somewhat random. As they land, you will see that some reels have as many as seven rows and some as few as two. This is one of the most complex slots out there, so please put on your top hat and pick up your dog, iron and thimble then take our hand as we try and guide you through just what happens when you play!
How to Play
This slot can best be described as two games in one – the reels are the same as with any kind of online slot and are above the second gaming factor, which is a strip version (not one where you take your clothes off) of the classic Monopoly board.
As opposed to choosing your coin, you instead choose your stake-per-spin. This can be anything from 0.20 to 40.00. Wins are triggered by identical symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the left-hand reel. It doesn’t matter where the winning symbol appears on the reel. You need at least three symbols to trigger a win. After a win, all winning symbols vanish from the reels to be replaced by new ones, potentially triggering new wins. When you are ready to launch your career as a London property magnate, hit the spin button.
The ‘M’ symbol is the wild symbol in the game and substitutes for all other symbols.
- 6 x Top Hat symbols = 50 x stake (max £2,000)
- 6 x Boat symbols = 5 x stake (max £200)
- 6 x Car symbols = 1.5 x stake (max £60)
- 6 x Dog symbols = 0.9 x stake (max £36)
- 6 x Ace symbols = 0.6 x stake (max £24)
- 6 x King symbols = 0.6 x stake (max £24)
- 6 x Queen symbols = 0.5 x stake (max £20)
- 6 x Jack symbols = 0.5 x stake (max £20)
- 6 x Ten symbols = 0.4 x stake (max £16)
- 6 x Nine symbols = 0.4 x stake (max £16)
Every time you win, Mr Monopoly will walk around the Monopoly board.
If you land on a property following your third cascade win, a house is added to it. If you cascade again another house is added to it. Properties can have no more than four houses on them.
Train Stations & Utilities
When you land upon a Train Station, you become the owner. The same goes for the Electric Company and the Waterworks.
Every time you land upon the GO space, your next spin will have the max ways to win – 117,649 in total.
Landing on a Community Chest square will transport you to a random property. Up to four houses can be added too.
If you land on Chance you may trigger a spin with 117,649 ways to win and trigger a feature where you end up at a random property with the addition of up to four houses.
Free Spins Trigger
If you add a fifth house to a property, you trigger eight free spins. Triggering free spins during free spins will add another three spins, and every house beyond five earns an extra free spin. For every train station you own, you add a bonus free spin.
Free Spins Unlimited Multiplier
When free spins begin, the win multiplier is increased by one for each utility that you own, and by the number of houses on each property that you land upon. Once free spins are over train stations and utilities are returned to the bank, as are the houses on the properties upon which you landed.
During free spins, if you land on a train station that you are the owner of, you are awarded one free spin for each train station you currently own. If you land on a utility you own, it follows the same rule as for train stations. A Chance card may now award you up to five bonus free spins.
Graphics and Sounds
Graphics-wise, everything looks fine. This is a fast-paced slot, so the graphics run smoothly and speedily. Mr Monopoly cuts a real (reel?) dashing figure across the monopoly board, too. Sometimes things run a little too fast, and given the complexity of the many options available, this can lead to confusion as you lose track of just what is going on.
The music is nicely exciting, though, and Mr Monopoly is never short of an encouraging word.
This game is certainly more exciting than a game of Monopoly, but then so is doing the washing up. It is certainly one of the most fast-paced and feature-packed online slots that we’ve ever come across, that much is certain. We’d actually prefer it if there was some way of slowing things down a little, to be honest.
Megaways slots from Big Time Gaming always tend to be thrilling slots, and Monopoly Megaways in an inventive addition to the range. What would you prefer, a chance to play Monopoly Megaways at one of WhichBingo’s recommend bingo, slots or casino sites, or to go back to Old Kent Road?
