As a child, I had an obsession with the board game Monopoly, as I loved the idea of buying property and taking money from the other players when they landed on my squares. Not that we managed to finish many games, with someone almost always managing to lose their cool and throw a tantrum before the inevitable end! Barcrest's Monopoly Big Event slot is yet another in the seemingly endless versions of slots based on the famous board game, but it manages to squeeze in a series of features that make it a bunch of fun to play.
Monopoly Big Event is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that manages to bring the board game of Monopoly to your computer screen. The game's backdrop is a darkened Monopoly board, and the game's symbols are a mixture of classic slot symbols (10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace) alongside game symbols such as a cat, dog, car, battleship, and Mr. Monopoly himself. There is also a game title symbol, which serves as a wild within the game.
The game's features include the above-mentioned wild symbol, free spins, win multipliers, a pick'em game, and sticky wilds. Players can play the big bet game at $20 for progressive win multipliers, or $30, which has a bonus wheel where players can earn the progressive multiplier, sticky wilds, and maxed out 5x multipliers for the duration of the game.
I found that the game was a lot of fun, as the features seemed to pop up regularly and there is potential for some very large wins in terms of bet multiples. I had some huge wins, with a $30 wager netting me a huge $600 win after all the features were done playing out. If you like Monopoly, I highly recommend you give this slot a go.
