About Monopoly Big Event
The graphics on Monopoly Big Event feature bright and clearly drawn icons that take in most of the well-known Monopoly symbols and motifs and blast them out over the reels. Other than this there is quite a smooth, casino style background that gives the entire production a nice wash of 1950s style opulence with a dash of decadence thrown in for good measure. You can say what you like about WMS, but they do have the formula down for making slots that have the right visual balance and big money feeling.
Sound-wise there is a classic club theme that underpins all the sonics in Monopoly Big Event. This is reminiscent of the audio you’ll find in Mega Fortune and Microgaming’s Playboy and is a snapshot of the slot machine trends of 2015, when this game was released. There are snatches of big band audio that gives you the powerful pomp that’s often associated with the brand together with all the little audio touches that underline the action on the reels.
The base game on Monopoly Big Event is quite interesting. At first the twenty pay-line structure and five reel set up looks like a normal slot machine. Then you’ll find out there is a dual bet structure that gives you the choice of either setting up a standard bet where you simply let the reels spin or you can elect to go for a specialist bet. These give you the option to take a progressive multiplier spin that sequentially raises the payback of each spin from 1x to 5x or take another kind of bonus bet where you win one of three random types of feature, including the progressive multiplier alongside a guaranteed 5x payout on every win and a the persisting wild.
If you can manage to get into the bonus game by stopping in three or more scatters anywhere in view then you’ll be taken to a second screen sub-game. Here you have to pick property cards to discover the amount of spins you’ll be tucking under your belt together with the different wild types on offer. It’s then over to the second set of reels where you get to take your various free spins and guaranteed wins, with a view to hitting those big money prizes. Off you go and let it roll.
