Monopoly Slot Machine

Monopoly Slots is the most successful slot machine WMS Gaming
has ever produced. The original Monopoly Slot Machine was
released as a “participation slot” back in 2001. A whole series
of sequel have followed in the 15 years since. The game also
founded an entire sub-type of gaming machine for WMS Gaming. On
the Internet, WMS Gaming’s online division, Williams
Interactive, launched Monopoly Online Slots.

Monopoly Slots offers a main bet, a side bet, wild symbols,
scatter symbols, a lot of ways to trigger free spins, and
several other bonus features. The sheer number of bonuses is one
of the reasons players love this video slots game so much.
Another reason is the designers made good use of the classic
Monopoly board. Many licensed slots give a simple nod to their
source material, but are not creative enough at incorporating
the theme into the game’s structure. That cannot be said of the
Williams Interactive version of Monopoly Slots.

Game Details

Max Bet

The maximum wager on this gaming machine is $75.00. While
that might not satisfy some high rollers, most VIP players
should find excitement playing for seventy-five dollars a hand.

“Once Around Deluxe” Side Bet

Monopoly: Once Around Deluxe also has a side bet feature.
When you select this option, click “Buy Houses Now!” to decide
how many houses you want to place on the game board. This
initiates a game-within-a-game in which the values increase,
though your risk of losing increases.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol on Monopoly Slots is the “Top Hat”, which on
the video screen appears as the funny-looking man with the white
mustache, monocle, and top hat. This symbol substitutes for all
other symbols on the game, except the Bonus, Chance, and
Community Chest symbols. When the wild appears, it helps
complete winning combinations.

Bonus Symbol

The main bonus symbol might be confusing for some players at
first. It features the fellow in the top hat, but he is holding
a wad of cash. Anytime you see the Monopoly man holding money,
it signals a bonus. If 3 or more bonus symbols appear on the
screen at once, it triggers the “Once Around” bonus feature.
This acts like a free spin bonus mode.

Around the World Bonus Game

Below is a list of different results you might encounter.
Most of these are positive for the player, but a few are neutral
or bad for you.

Property Bonus

The property bonus happens when you land on any property on
the board. You collect a slot machine icon, which can be used to
collect more rolls or cash. Over half of the spaces on a
Monopoly board are properties, so this is a common reward in the
game.

Utilities Bonus

When players receive the utility bonus, they are allowed to
roll utility dice. These include unique prizes.

Community Chest Bonus

This bonus features provides a special card. Unlike the board
game, the Community Chest offers only positive rewards. This
allows you to move your game piece around the board to its
maximum advantage. It also allows for cash prizes and bonus
rolls.

Railroad Bonus

When this icon appears, you’ll be pushed to the next
railroad. Also, you receive a free roll.

Go to Jail Bonus

When this appears, you won’t be able to claim the GO Bonus.
Instead, you must go to the Jail Bonus.

Jail Bonus

The jail bonus triggers when activate from the “Go to Jail”
square or when you roll three double-dice in a row. In either
case, you must make three attempts to roll a double. If you’re
successful, you get out of jail and can continue. If not, the
bonus features ends and you return to the main game.

GO Bonus

The GO Bonus pays 200x the initial wagers. This is a huge
payout–one of the biggest in the game.

Free Parking Bonus

This simply unlocks a free spin. While it does not reward the
player, it does keep the game going.

Income Tax, Just Visiting, Super Tax

With the “Income Tax”, “Super Tax”, or “Just Visiting”
squares appear, no bonuses are collected. These three square do
not reward you. Nothing happens at all.

Variants of Monopoly Slots

Several versions of Monopoly Slots exist. Players have the
option to select a number of game options: Once Around, Movers &
Shakers, Pass Go, Advance to Boardwalk, Monopoly Plus, Here and
Now, and Chairman of the Board.

This can be confusing, especially because a half-dozen
different Monopoly slot machines exist, licensed by four
different companies. These are Williams Interactive, IGT
Interactive, Barcrest, and Gamesys. While each occupies a niche,
that’s of no help when a player goes on the Internet to learn
about a slot machine, whether it’s a land-based machine or
online casino game, a mobile slot or an Internet computer game.
Below, we’ll sort through the games, to help readers figure out
what names they should research and which games they should
play.

Super Monopoly Money

Super Monopoly from Williams Interactive offers a free spin
bonus or the ability to collect Monopoly money in a bonus game.
It also has the Wheel Bonus feature, which is one of player’s
favorites these days. Those familiar with Bally Technologies’
wheel games have an idea of what SuperMonopoly contains.

Monopoly: Dream Life

In July 2013, IGT produced a 5-reel, 20-payline slot machine
called Monopoly: Dream Life. This game has a wild symbol, bonus
round, free spins, and autoplay feature. It is available for
mobile gaming, too. While it might be a good game, players
should not confuse the IGT Monopoly game with the WSM Gaming
version.

Monopoly: Paradise Mansion Online Slot

Gamesys launched a 5-reel, 20-payline online slots games
called “Monopoly Paradise Mansion” in 2015. This gaming machine
has nothing in common with the Williams Interactive licensed
slots. It does reference the same popular board game. This
popular video slot has wild symbol, scatter symbols, and a bonus
round. It is available in an instant play version and on mobile
casinos which license games from Gamesys.

Monopoly: Rising Riches Online Slot

Also in 2015, Gamesys launched a 5-reel, 25-payline game.
Monopoly: Rising Riches is a video slots game with wilds,
scatters, and cascading reels. Once again, it comes in a
downloadable, instant play, and mobile gaming version. Players
are likely to encounter these games and get confused, but they
have nothing to do with WMS Gaming slots, as far as I know.
Monopoly is a popular board game, so they presumably have
several licenses, much like Marvel Comics and DC Comics have
gaming machines from two different companies.

Monopoly: Big Event

This slot machine has a 5×3-reel, 20-line game screen. It has
three bonus games accessed by the Big Bet game or the Big Event
Bonus feature. The Community Chest provides either guaranteed
wins or free spins. The Chance card allows you to enter into the
free spin mode or choose which icons are wild. This is not from
WMS Gaming, but is from Barcrest.

Monopoly: Roulette Hot Properties

This machine has a Hot Properties Bonus Game which highly
touted. The Hot Properties bonus gives a player the option of
playing for bigger cash, though this increases the chance you’ll
bust. The Roulette Hot Properties feature add the elements of a
game of roulette to the game. Like the previous game mentioned,
this is produced by Barcrest.

About Williams Interactive

Williams Interactive is the online division of WMS Gaming.
WMS Gaming is a subsidiary of WMS Industries, which is in turn a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Scientific Games. Scientific Games,
an American lottery company, bought WMS Industries for $1.5
billion in 2013. WMS Industries began in Chicago as Williams
Manufacturing Company in 1943. The company changed its name
Williams Electronics in 1974.

The company founded Williams Gaming in 1991 in order to enter
the video lottery terminal industry. In 1994, the newly-branded
WMS Gaming released its first slot machine, Reel ‘Em In. The
game proved successful, but IGT sued the company over the
electronic reel movements, limiting WMS Gaming’s ability to
capitalize on their designs. In 2001, WMS Gaming opened had its
biggest slots success with Monopoly Slots. This founded the
“participation slots” niche.

Participation Slots

“Participation slots” are not sold to a casino. Instead, they
are leased to the casino, which pays a revolving fee for their
use. WMS Gaming places these in many different casinos, then
links them over a large-area network to increase the size of
jackpots. The company’s participation slots brought it larger
revenues than its games-for-sale did.

The list of WSM Gaming’s participation slots include licensed
EGMs like Monopoly, Clue, Hollywood Squares, Star Trek, Men in
Black, The Wizard of Oz, and The Lord of the Rings. These have
become the company’s most popular releases.

About the Monopoly Board Game

The theme of the game is Monopoly, the popular board game
based on finance, real estate speculation, and property
development. The brick-and-mortar and online versions of this
5-reel, 15-line video slots game feature a wild symbol, scatter
symbol, autoplay feature, bonus round, and free spins. It has a
mobile gaming version and an instant play version. The prize
symbols are based on the playing pieces on the Monopoly Board.

The board game’s inception can be traced back to 1903, when
Elizabeth J. Magie Phillips invented a game called “The
Landlord’s Game”. Phillips wanted to explain the single-tax
theory of Henry George, as well as illustrate the negative
aspects of public monopolies. The game was self-published by
Lizzie Phillips in 1906, but she continued to change the rules
of the game between that time and the 1930s–changes included
the buying and selling of houses. She patented her game in 1924.
By 1933, a game called “Monopoly”, based on The Landlord’s Game,
was developed by Parker Brothers. Several others made
contribution to the finished product, which first hit store
shelves in 1935.

The original version of Monopoly was based on properties in
Atlantic City, New Jersey. Park Place, Boardwalk, and
Pennsylvania Avenue were parts of Atlantic City then and now.
The game has been adapted for many nations over the years, while
dozens of versions including other pop culture elements have
been produced. Versions include Star Wars, The Lord of the
Rings, and American football programs.

Over the years, the game has had a tremendous influence. In
World War II, British intelligence sent Monopoly board game
packages to British prisoners of war which contained money,
maps, and other tools to help POWs escape. Also, Monopoly has
developed its own folklore, such as the myth that Charles Darrow
invented the game.
