Monopoly Big Event – Barcrest/WMS
SlotsMagic Casino has added lots of new slots this week, the bulk of them come from NetEnt in the form of Scarface, JackHammer 2, Wonky Wabbits, South Park and Beach. The most interesting addition however has to be the brand new title from Barcrest/WMS titled Monopoly Big Event.
Set in a classic Monopoly theme Barcrest have created a fairly typical 20 line slot in the base game, but there is a whole host of unique features in the bonus round making it capable of some huge wins, there is also a Big Bet feature which gives players an even higher long term return as well as greater chances of triggering the 5 scatter bonus rounds which is where the slot truly gets very interesting.
Monopoly Big Event Slot
The Monopoly Big Event slot features a regular 5×3 reel layout with 20 fixed paylines, the base game is capable of some decent line hits but it really is the bonus round where some very special things can happen, there are 3 main bonus rounds available for triggering the bonus with 3,4 or 5 scatters as well as a unique Big Bet function which gives players additional options and increased potential to trigger this round.
The Big Event
In regular play the bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more scatters (Monopoly Big Event Symbol) on reels 1,3 and 5 respectively. This then triggers the big event and players get to choose community chest and chance cards to increase the number of free spins, guaranteed win spins as well as the type of free spins round.
Picking the community chest cards grants either free spins or guaranteed wins, once 1 pick is selected the player must then pick a chance card, this process continues until 3 matching chance cards have been revealed and the bonus round starts.
The interesting things here is that if there are any Guaranteed Wins left over after the free spins round, they will be played out on a separate unique reel set with some huge wins available.
Picking chance cards will trigger one of three free spins bonus rounds depending on the symbols revealed.
- 3 Dice – Triggers Regular Free spins
- 3 Green Houses – Triggers Dancing Wilds Free Spins
- 3 Red Hotels – Triggers Locked Wild Free Spins
Its worth noting that if a player triggers the initial bonus round with 4 or 5 scatters they also get an extra feature added to the picking round with a House (4 scatter) and Hotel (5 scatter) sneak preview, this allows the player to guarantee picking either of these round. There is of course an optimal strategy for either of these types of trigger as you can basically guarantee picking lots of the community and chance cards before optimally selected the 3rd matching symbol (check the paytable for further details).
Go To Jail
During any of the free spins round if a go to jail symbol lands on any of the reels, this will then remove the lowest paying symbol from the reels for the rest of the free spins round. If further Go To Jail symbols land on the reel this then adds the next lowest paying symbol also e.g 10, J, Q, K, A symbols removed from the reels.
Big Bet Mode
Like previous Barcrest slots, they have also added a Big bet Feature, players can opt for a Progressive Win Round for 20 credits or a Bonus wheel round for 30 credits. Its important to note here that you are paying for bonus rounds that are played out at a 1 credit trigger.
The Bonus round option is definitely the more exciting as landing on the green section triggers a persisting wild feature which basically holds the scatters for the duration of the 5 spins and also makes them wild, this makes it easier to of course trigger the normal bonus round and potentially land 5 scatters.
Further to this it also doesn’t require the scatters to be triggered on reels 1,3 and 5, they can be on any of those reels as long as there is 3 or more!
The RTP for the slot is stated at 96% for optimal play in the regular mode and 99% in Big Bet mode again if the player uses an optimal strategy for the picking round. Head over to Slots Magic Casino and test the slot out in real or play mode for yourself!
