Barcrest is among the developers that are offering us a Monopoly themed slot machine, the title of the one they’ve just launched being On The Money. There are multiple developers and at least 10 games right now which use this hugely popular board game for inspiration.
For On The Money, you will have the option to use 10 active lines, while 5 reels are used as their support. Some impressive prizes can be won here, up to $125,000 even. Looking at the features, those will help you out with their wilds, with free spins, cash multipliers, Red Hot Respins and all sorts of other cool options.
Betting and Prizes
The slot has a couple of ways through which you can get it going. One of them is through the regular spins, which can be as low as $0.10, or as high as $500. The range is yours to work with and to change as you please. The other option is to just use the Big Bet spins, which are found in a lot of Bacrest slot machines. These require fixed value wagers, giving you in exchange a number of Big Bet Spins, which are the best ones of the game in terms of how well they pay.
You will have a maximum prize to win of up to $125,000, obtained through the Mr. Monopoly symbol, only during the free spins. The regular spins can reach maximum jackpot values of $100,000, which is still very good.
The RTP in a game of Monopoly: On The Money will vary from 94% (for wagers of less than $2), to 96% (wagers higher than $2) and to 97.75% (for the Big Bet spins).
Monopoly: On The Money Features
The game will feature wild symbols, though the standard games don’t seem to have them. They will be offered for Big Bet spins though, as well as for other features. These wilds are usable as substitutes for all other symbols which are available in this game.
Scatter symbols are responsible for the start of the free spins. It’s the one with the Go message on it. Three, four or five such symbols in view will activate the feature with 10, 15 or 20 free spins. You only get the Mr. Monopoly symbol during the free spins, and it’s going to be a substitute and a way for you to get a combo which pays up to $125,000. Multiplier symbols that appear on the reels will be collected by Mr. Monopoly, in a special meter, found to the right. The total multiplier that is collected will be applied to the total bet.
If you choose to use Big Bets, the advantages that you get from these spins include persistent scatter symbols, which also act as wilds and which remain in their position until the feature is over. Red Hot Respin is another feature exclusive to the Big Bet Spins, giving you another chance at landing the third required scatter, if you got only two. The free spins also benefit from Chance Card bonus during the Big Bet spins, which could bring them extra free spins, cash prizes or the end of the feature.
The game also has features that are related to the board game, such as the House Extension or the Hotel Extension, where the reels are getting one or two additional positions.
Theme & Design
It’s a Monopoly inspired slot machine, but that’s not rare at all these days. The graphics are often lacking in these games, and On The Money is not an exception, featuring a pretty average looking design. The symbols are with Mr. Monopoly, poker cards and various tokens from the board game.
I think that the game will be enjoyable for the fans of the board game, but the Big Bet Spins are good enough that you could play them even if you’re not among those.
