Will You Rule the Board?
If there was ever a board game to end all board games, it would be Monopoly. The game has been around for more than a century and it was originally created by a lady named Elizabeth Magie as a way to demonstrate how unrestricted capitalist economies would inevitably end to a situation where the super rich had a monopoly control over the smaller people. That’s why when you play the board game it usually ends in a Marxist revolt with the losing players literally overthrowing the board and throwing the bank money all over the place in a fit of rage!
This free monopoly Bright the House Down slot machine pays homage to the board game by revealing some of the traditional place markers such such as the ship, the car, the cat and the dog. So, you don’t have to worry about being stuck with the stupid thimble! Design-wise the game is fairly pleasant to look at without going absolutely overboard with the special effects and 3D graphics. Then again, we imagine most punters who play the game are in it for money and not the aesthetic.
Pass Go and Collect $200
Fortunately, you don’t need to endure this game of Monopoly with your family or friends on those taught and tense Christmas afternoons and you can spin the game from the safe distance of your home computer, mobile or tablet device. In order to play, you will need some real cash wagers – Monopoly money not accepted, unfortunately – with base game wagers that range from 0.20 credits to the maximum limit of 500.00 coins. As you might have deduced, this 40-payline slot takes a line bet per 2 lines, meaning you basically get twice the amount of winning chances at no extra cost. The return-to-player percentage for punters who play with bets less than 2.00 credits will be 94.10% while the RTP for players with bets equal to or higher than 2.00 will be 96.10%.
The biggest win in the base game of the slot machine is a 200x multiplier for five wild houses. That might not sound like a big jackpot prize for a medium volatility slot machine, but just wait until you find out about the big bonus boosts on offer in the slot.
Chance on a Bonus
Most real money online slots out there come with a bit of a bonus boost, but few are as stocked up on extra winning opportunities as this Barcrest slot machine. In the base spins alone, players can hope to come across ‘Hot Zone’ wilds which can fall on to the reels with every spin to turn symbols into wild symbols that will potentially complete line wins. These can be upgraded to hotels at random to offer extra multiplier boosts to the wins it makes. Players can also trigger a round of 8 free spins with hotel sticky wild icons that remain in place for the duration of the feature.
If you can’t be doing with waiting for the bonus action to come your way, you can always take matters into your own hands by buying a ‘Big Bet’ round of free spins. You can pay 20.00, 30.00, 40.00 or 50.00 credits to get 5 free spins with 1, 2, 3 or 4 picks at the bonus modifiers. These include instant cash prizes, guaranteed wins, bigger wild hotel multipliers and extra free spins.
The popularity of the Monopoly board game is evident in the fact that there are so many slot machines online which are based on the game. Some of the most popular slots out there with a Monopoly theme include Super Monopoly Money by WMS, Monopoly Slots by IGT and Monopoly Around the World by WMS.
Up Among the Best
So, how does this Barcrest slot machine compare to those other slots from the top software developers? Well, we can tell you that the game is up there with the best of them when it comes down to the quality of the bonus action. Of course, not every spinner is in the market for such big bonus features but you might find it hard to turn down the winning opportunities on offer in this slot.
