What is Monopoly Live?
Monopoly Live is a groundbreaking live casino game show released in 2019 by developers Evolution Gaming. This terrific title has set the standard for what a good live casino game show game should be.
The game is a variation of Evolution Gaming's Dream Catcher Live with official Hasbro/Monopoly branding. Want to play? The concept is very simple: A charismatic game show host will periodically spin a giant wheel that is split into 54 equal segments and separated by pins.
48 of the segments on this wheel are numbered 1, 2, 5 and 10, if you were to place a bet on any one of these numbers and the wheel landed on the same one then you’d win the corresponding amount of back.
For example, had you had bet on on 5 and it comes in you’ll win 5x your bet.
Of course the higher the number, the fewer the times they appear on the wheel, here’s a full breakdown of how many times each number features:
- 1 - (Win 1x your stake) appears 22 times
- 2 - (Win 2x your stake) appears 15 times
- 5 - (Win 5x your stake) appears 7 times
- 10 - (Win 10x your stake) appears 4 times
What about the other 6 segments we hear you ask? They’re the segments you really want to see the wheel land on! These segments are rolls (2 rolls and 4 rolls) and chance. Here’s how many times they appear:
- 2 Rolls - (Launches 2 rolls of the dice on the board) appears 3 times
- 4 Rolls - (Launches 4 rolls of the dice on the board) appears 1 time
- Chance - Appears 2 times
If you’re lucky enough to have the wheel land on either of the two chance segments then Mr. Monopoly will present you with a chance card which could be one of two things… Either a random cash prize that goes to every single player that placed a stake during that round, or a random multiplier bonus.
If it is the multiplier bonus then a multiplier is added to the winnings on the next spin, you will not have to place a new bet which is a nice bonus! On the off-chance that the wheel stops on another multiplier than the multiplier is multiplied (It’s rare but we’ve seen it happen).
If the multiplier is immediately followed by 2 roll or a 4 roll then every single one of the properties on the Monopoly board during the bonus round are multiplied which can lead to incredibly high winnings for all of those playing the board.
Monopoly Live Studio
There's no live casino studio quite as grand as the Monopoly Live studio! Designed to look like a stunning golden room atop a city skyscraper the centrepiece is of course the Monopoly Live wheel.
To the left of the wheel is an incredible 3D augmented reality Mr. Monopoly, he sits in his chair reading his newspaper or drinking tea until called upon for bonus rounds when he takes over from the real life host.
To the right of the wheel is a large golden plinth that plays home to the dice which are rolled during bonus rounds.
Monopoly Live betting interface
If you've played Dream Catcher Live then you'll understand the Monopoly Live interface straight away as they're incredibly similar!
The bottom of the game interface is where players will find all of their betting options (Pictured below). On the far left you will find your balance and bet amount underneath the Monopoly Live logo.
In the middle you will see 6 Monopoly bank notes with 1, 2, 5, 10, 2 rolls and 4 rolls written on them, these notes correspond with the matching number on the game wheel. Players place their betting chips on the note that they think the game wheel will land on, players are not restricted to just betting on one note, the can bet on as many as they please.
On the far right you'll find the wheel history, which shows players the last 24 numbers the wheel has landed on in consecutive order.
The Monopoly Live bonus round
If the wheel lands on a 2 roll or 4 roll segment then the bonus round kicks in. This is where the fun really begins, you’ll see Mr. Monopoly himself hop out of his armchair and transport himself the players into an immersive 3D Monopoly world.
If the wheel landed on 2 rolls then you’ll receive 2 rolls of the dice, if you landed on 4 then you’ll receive 4 rolls of the dice. Mr. Monopoly will walk a number of steps equal to each individual roll of the dice, wherever he stops he’ll collect prizes. Each property has its own value, much like the original game.
Your original stake will be multiplied by however much Mr. Monopoly has accumulated around the board, for example if you hit a 2 roll and land on a 5x and a 6x your overall stake will be multiplied by 11x.
Double dice numbers
If you're lucky enough to hit ANY doubles when during dice rolls then players will receive an additional roll on the bonus round board, there's no limit as to how many additional rolls you can get.
If the dice rolls are high enough that Mr. Monopoly makes one full journey around the board, passing GO then all of the multipliers on the board will be doubled.
Sadly, the bonus game isn't all positive though, there are a small handful of potential pitfalls. Players should be well aware of some sneaky squares dotted around the board that could see you suffer!
Go to Jail!
If a Mr. Monopoly lands on the Go to Jail square then a double must rolled on the dice to continue playing, if this isn’t achieved then everyone will take whatever bonus winnings they’ve already accumulated. However it most likely won’t be much!
If a Mr. Monopoly lands on Income Tax then unfortunately the player will have 10% of their winnings reduced.
If Mr. Monopoly lands on Super Tax then unfortunately the player will have 20% of their winnings reduced.
Monopoly Live winning potential
The opportunity to win big money playing Monopoly Live is certainly there, that's why this game is so popular with players all across the world, with thousands logging in and playing every hour of the day.
No matter how you choose to play Monopoly Live, we at Lucky Game Shows always recommend placing a bet on the 2 roll and 4 roll segments, the bonus round can be highly lucrative.
