Free Monopoly Multiplier Slots
Slots themed on the board game Monopoly are hugely popular. There are many versions both in live casinos and online. IGT (who acquired Monopoly Multiplier with their acquisition of Barcrest) make some of the best titles – including the amazing Monopoly Here and Now. This one is a 3 reel slot, and will give you a trip down memory lane to the original slot format. Unlike the very earliest 3 reel slots, there are 27 possible win-lines (covering all of the combinations from left to right).
The background to the reels is a city view, looking up at skyscrapers with your host (uncle Pennybags) standing at the bottom left of the screen. The Monopoly Multiplier logo sits above the reels, with another uncle Pennybags, this time standing in a pile of dollar bills.
Symbols on the reels are retro in design, and remind me of the original board game. There is the familiar free parking, pass go sign, house, hotel and property symbols. I like the way that these video slot reels have been made to look and sound like the mechanical reels on the original 3-reel slots. In common with other IGT slots which came from Barcrest, the music (jazzy tune) only plays when the reels are spinning – going silent between spins.
Playing Monopoly Multiplier
The 27 win line setup of Monopoly Multiplier is not configurable, so the only choice you will need to make before you spin is how much to play for. The smallest is 20c per spin. Auto play is available, and gives you up to 25 spin each time.
All of the prizes are multiplies of your total real money bet, rather than per line or coin bets. The biggest single prize is for the ‘wild’ symbol, which is worth 50x your bet for 3, and also works on other lines to complete wins with different symbols. Next come hotels (10x for 3), houses (8x) and the 3 types of property. The smallest wins are for the free parking and lightbulb (electricity company sign from the original game) which are worth 1x your stake only.
Bonus Game for Monopoly Multiplier
There is no big free spins round or elaborate break out bonus game involving a Monopoly board for this game. For those I recommend you check out IGT’s other Monopoly themed titles. There is one interesting bonus feature, which is a nice addition to this otherwise very simple slot.
When you hit a win across the middle of the reels (2nd row, in a straight line from left to right), then you get a chance to win up to 20x with the ‘win multiplier’ bonus. What happens is that a pop up shows you 8 of the classic Monopoly pieces (car, boot, dog, iron and so on). You click on one of these symbols, which then shows you a multiplier for that particular win.
The top possible prize is to hit the 20x multiplier with the top win of 3 wild symbols. This would be 50×20, or 1000 times your bet amount from a single spin. This might not be quite jackpot material, though it would be a welcome windfall for any player!
Summary for Monopoly Multiplier
You have to set your expectations right when loading up this game. It is not a fully-featured or interactive title like some of the latest live Monopoly slots. What you will find is a very solid and entertaining game, which goes back to the early days of video slots. It is almost a bridge between the ultra-simple 3-reel games and the first feature slots. 27 win lines is certainly a setup up for the 3-reelers, and even the one simple feature which is in place (a pick-em game for the playing pieces) is unusual for this type of game. If you have tried the other Monopoly themed games out there, why not complete the set and take this one for a spin too.
