Monopoly Big Event is a 5-reel game developed by Scientific Games through its subsidiary Barcrest. The game has 20 paylines. Monopoly is a well-known board game that was developed by Hasbro. Although there are adaptations of the original Monopoly by game makers such as IGT, Scientific Games has the license to produce online slot games with the Monopoly name and theme. Big Event is the first game that has been produced under the arrangement. Gamers can play with any amount ranging from 20 pence to a maximum stake of 500 pounds. Monopoly Big Event has a jackpot of 2,000 pounds.
Monopoly Big Event has several exciting bonus features, the first of which can be accessed by triggering the Big Event symbol. That can be done on reels one, three and five. Reel five is especially important because two stacked symbols in the reel bring the player a House sneak preview, while three stacked symbols allow the player to enter the game with a Hotel sneak preview.
The House sneak preview makes it possible for the player to determine the position of the chance cards for the three houses. The Hotel sneak preview gives the player the position of the chance cards for the three hotels. When the two bonuses are in play, the player can decide to either go with the chance cards or the community chest option. The chance cards lead to bonus icons, in the event of which the player can activate a corresponding bonus, but only if the three bonus icons are similar. The chance cards lead to three bonus spins. Any of the three bonus spins guarantees a win, and winning is cumulative.
There is a Locking Wilds free spins feature in the game Monopoly Big Event. The feature is designed such that if any wild lands on the reels then that wild stays locked there until the feature is no longer viable. Landing on ‘In Jail’ in Monopoly Big Event leads to removal of the symbol with the lowest payout from the reels.
The game also has a wilds feature called the Dancing Wild. If a player chooses this free spins symbol, one reel is selected at random to go wild. Just like with the Locking Wilds feature, landing on ‘In Jail’ when playing the Dancing Wild leads to elimination of the symbol that pays lowest from the reels.
Monopoly Big Event has a Big Bet Game feature, which is accessible by selecting the Play Big Bet button. The button is conspicuously coloured purple and is located on the right side. Big Bets can either be played in 20 pound stakes or 30 pound stakes. Bonuses in the big bets can be up to 5 times for free spins.
Overall, we found that the game Monopoly Big Bet is more complicated than many online slots. The game is of middle variance and the payout is big if the player manages to get to the wilds. The game has a return to player rate of 96 percent.
