Themes, Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
Do we have to explain what Monopoly is? Probably not, but we’ll do it anyway for those in the dark. Hasbro’s board game is played with at least two players who roll two six-sided dice to move around the game board, buying and trading properties, building houses and hotels. Each player aims to drive others into bankruptcy and to earn as more money as possible, landing into jail as few times as possible. The game was released over 80 years ago, has been licensed in over 100 countries and translated into nearly 40 languages. Rich Uncle Pennybags is the mascot of the game, but he’s mostly known as the Monopoly Man, or Mr. Monopoly.
The paytable combines regular 9 to Ace card icons at the lower end, with figurines of Monopoly at the higher end such as the dog, battleship, top hat and race car. A capital ‘M’ jewel-encrusted gold symbol is worth 50x the stake, which is the most you’ll get from standard payouts. The bets start at 10p and go up to £20, accommodating both casual punters and more ambitious bettors.
Rich Uncle Pennybags makes his way around the Monopoly board, as per usual. Where he lands affects the game. Should he stop on ‘Go’, the next spin will have the maximum number of Megaways. Stopping on utilities and railway stations makes these positions yours, which will have its function in the bonus round. Landing on chance sends you to a random street with 1 to 4 houses added. Chance can also activate free spins or maximize the Megaways on the next spin. Community chest also sends you to a randomly selected street with 1 to 4 houses added, and stopping on streets through consecutive reactions adds houses to them.
Free Spins are triggered by obtaining 5 houses on a street (or through chance). Initially, you’ll get 8 freebies, but this number may increase considering the railway stations or streets with 5 or more houses you own. During free spins, you can win additional rotations, increasing multipliers, properties and max Megaways. However, the houses and utilities you have gathered during the feature will disappear after the round ends. Of course, there is always base game to try to get them back.
