Great news for Monopoly fans as WMS has just released another Monopoly-themed slot, titled Epic Monopoly II, the slot features the Colossal Reel Set and is packed with different bonus rounds, all in an authentic Monopoly setting.
Leo Vegas Casino already has the slot live and playable for both fun and real money, and they are also running an extra special offer for new players from the UK or Netherlands with 50 Free Spins No Deposit required that can be played on the latest Guns N’ Roses Slot making it a perfect time to check out this casino.
Epic Monopoly II uses a regular 5×3 reel set as well as the colossal reel set, the minimum bet is 0.50 credits which actually gives you 100 paylines (0.01 is 2 paylines), most of the base game features work in the same way as the previous Colossal Reel slots including the transferring Wild reels stacks from the main reel onto the colossal sets, with up to 6 Scatter triggers being possible in total across both reel sets granting a 100x win and triggering the main bonus round.
Rather than simply triggering a regular free spins round, instead the initial bonus is the Epic Wheel Bonus, which you must spin in order to claim your reward which can vary from a Cash Reward, Free Spins, Around the Board Bonus, Epic Chance Bonus and a special 2x and Spin Again on the wheel.
Epic Monopoly II Bonus Rounds
There a range of bonuses available from the Epic Wheel Bonus, with some simple cash rewards, regular free spins bonus round, the classic Around the Board Bonus as well as an Epic Chance bonus.
On thing worth mentioning is that many of multiplier awards quoted in these bonus rounds are actually a multiple of bet per 2 lines rather than total staked on the slot, just so you don’t get too excited when it flashes up you’ve won 500x, to find out it’s actually 500x bet level per 2 lines.
There is definitely plenty of potential in the slot though, as you can win up to 20 Free Spins, Travel Round the Monopoly board several times in that bonus, and receive some great rewards from the Epic Chance Bonus, not forgetting that stacked wilds can fill the screen in the base game too.
And the good news this time round is that the slots RTP (Return to Player) is a much more healthy 96.1%, which is a big improvement over the shockingly low RTP on Monopoly Once Around Deluxe slot.
Epic Monopoly II Slot – Our thoughts
In terms of slot design this seems like a much more rounded slot than the previous Once Around release, there’s plenty of action in the base game and bonus rounds to keep you occupied, and the payout potential seems ok, although colossal reels definitely aren’t the highest variance WMS slots.
Things we don’t like is WMS’s shift towards mobile compatibility and their use of these user interfaces for desktop players, playing from a regular desktop device seems to be somewhat of an afterthought for players, with a clunky and unintuitive UI for desktop players, it most likely performs perfectly for players on mobile but please don’t forget about the desktop players WMS!
If anyone is able to actually find an Autoplay Function please let us know, maybe this was an oversight, but it’s a very big one in our opinion, it should be a basic function for any online slot.
With those niggles out the way, it’s a solid online slot, looks gorgeous and should definitely appeal to Monopoly Fans as well as slots players who enjoy the colossal reel series.
