It takes more than a little imagination to conceptualize a slot based on a game like Monopoly. However, we’re quite used to the innovative ways of the Megaways creator, Big Time Gaming. It takes all the paylines offered by Megaways to reward the array of commercial transactions that take place in one of the most popular board games invented since chess. If you’ve never played any other monopoly slot before, this one can bring back a million childhood memories.
It is the lovable old Mr. Monopoly himself who does the honors on the board. The 6-reel slot that offers 117,649 paylines or ways to win, is packed with features that keep Mr. Monopoly busy while you buy up properties and rake up winnings. The cascading reels keep things interesting in the base game when winnings combinations vanish. Other symbols then drop in their place to potentially create more and more rewarding symbol arrangements.
Since Monopoly gives you more than a hundred thousand ways to win, don’t expect a lot of lucrative single combination wins. Cascading and continuous winning combos is what you want. You should be prepared for a long game, as the best rewards come with the free spins bonus, but that is a bit hard to get. There is no scatter in the game. The free spins are triggered when you buy 5 houses on a single property you own.
The game plays out in high volatility, which means that there are relatively drier spells in the base game and substantial wins in the bonus games. Monopoly Megaways has a high return to player ration of 96%, and the maximum win multiplier is theoretically 15,000. However, practically speaking, you should be lucky to get a fraction of that.
Big Time Gaming has used this feature only once before in Holy Diver Megaways, except that Mr. Monopoly replaces the brave knight to do all the honors. The winning combinations you land, direct Mr. Monopoly to various squares on the game board. As usual he makes his move from ‘Go’:
The 5th house is added to your properties on a street, activates this round and you get 8 free spins with a single multiplier. Any additional feature you trigger will give you 3 or more free spins. Free spins can also be triggered if Mr. Monopoly is asked to move to ‘Chance’; but then you also get a few other extras:
You lose ownership of all the train stations and utilities after the free spins round, but you retain ownership of all the houses on the board.
It can be thrilling to play Monopoly Megaways while on the move, since the game’s platform is optimally configured to support all mobile devices that run on Android, iOS, or Windows Phone, etc. You can play the game on any Smartphone or tablet.
What’s more, thanks to its HTML5 programming, the game’s platform seamlessly plays out on the small screen. You can enjoy the game in original high definition and sound quality, just like on PCs. However, since you will be playing online, you must have reliable internet connectivity at all times.
Well, you can thank the gods for small mercies. The game is fully-optimized for play on all mobile devices, which run on Android, iOS and similar platforms. Thus, you can enjoy this Egyptian adventure on all Smartphones, iPads, iPhones or iPods.
There is another benefit too. The games HTML5 programming auto-adjust to the small screens. You can enjoy winning in full HD clarity and original audio quality, just like on PCs. Just make sure your internet connection is robust.
There are quite a few Monopoly-themed slots on the market, but Big Time Gaming’s Megaways version is likely to stand out from all the others. The slot creatively combines the original board’s game play with reel mechanics. Both games are played on the turn of chance, but while you earned play money on the board, you can win substantial sums of real money on the reels version.
