Monopoly Makes Comeback as Online Casino SlotPublished October 17, 2010 by OCR Editor
WagerWorks game is based on one of world's most popular board games.
It has been hailed as the most played board game in the world, and now Monopoly can be enjoyed by online video slots players as well, thanks to its introduction by WagerWorks.
Based on the classic Parker Brothers game that has entertained at least 500 million people since its introduction in the 1930s, the game features the familiar moustached mascot as well as symbols based on several of the properties from the UK version and on the famous top hat icon.
What will most please Monopoly fans is that the slot has retained most of the traditional features from the board game, including community chest, "Go", free parking and jail bonuses.
The "Go" bonus is activated by the appearance of three bonus dice symbols on a payline. The game piece then moves around the Monopoly board in a clockwise direction, exactly as in the real version.
The slot game continues the growing number of appearances of Monopoly in various cultural guises. Both a movie directed by Ridley Scott and a documentary about the history of the game are expected to be released shortly.
Monopoly Slot is available at all good online casinos, including Metro Casino, where it is one of around 50 slots, along with several other hits based on classic games, such as Cluedo.
