The very popular Monopoly franchise is getting yet another slot machine, but it’s one capable of paying up to $250,000 through its jackpot, so it should be one of the player’s favorites anyway. The usual Monopoly style graphics are used, and the design quality is quite high. Let’s see what elese this Bally slot has to offer though.
In a game area which has 5x5 reels, Monopoly 250k delivers a total of 40 active lines, which is not a lot given that size. The ultimate prize that you’re going for has a value of $250,000, but in addition to that jackpot you can also win up to $10,000 per spin through regular combinations. Other notable offers made by the game include the Mr Monopoly Wild, the Big Wheel Bonus and a Railroad Bonus.
Betting and Prizes
As the game delivers 40 active lines each round, it requires in exchange that you spend at least $0.40 per spin. The minimum bet of $0.01 per line can be increased all the way up to $2.50 though, so you can end up with a wager of $100 at most.
The big target is clearly going to be on the $250,000 jackpot which the game can deliver. It’s even mentioned in the title, and it’s worth 2,500x the stake of the round. The regular winning combinations offer a lot less, up to $10,000 (100x the stake) when filling up the reels with wilds, but the Community Chest’s multipliers can boost that amount up to $100,000. Several other fixed jackpots are also available, going up to $40,000.
As the RTP is set to 95.39%, I’m not very impressed with the way the game pays back the players in the long run. Clearly, there are games which do much better.
Monopoly 250k Slot Features
Mr Monopoly’s appearance on the game’s reels will usually spell good news for you. It’s a substitute, so even when it appears in a single position, it may still be capable of getting you a nice reward. Ideally, you will get this symbol covering multiple positions on the same line and forming a combo directly, as it pays better than the others.
The random features of the slot include a Community Chest, which will give you a pick of one out of three shown cards. Up to 10x multipliers can be won, to be used on all payouts of that round.
Chance and Mystery are question mark style symbols, with orange or blue backgrounds. They can appear on the reels, and then they are replaced with random symbols.
Big Wheel Bonus is activated through scatters with the feature’s own logo. A single spin of the wheel triggers after that. It can give you up to 4,000 coins as a cash prize or one of several bonus features (Go to Jail, Electric Company, Railroad or Free Parking).
Theme & Design
Bally did a very good job at turning this slot machine into a Monopoly themed game. They used images of Mr Monopoly in several icons, but also of diamonds, Monopoly money and the tokens that you would use on the board (yacht, car, motorcycle and private jet). It’s a perfectly appropriate design for this theme and board game, and I’m sure it will be appreciated by its fans.
Monopoly 250k has a good top payout, so I’m sure it can get and keep a player’s attention. Luckily, it also has its fair share of bonus features to help it do that.
