Game Symbols

As all games from the WMS Monopoly catalogue, Monopoly Mega Movers is an eye-catching game. With its purple reel set background and smooth, jazzy music score, the lovable video slots will captivate your interest from the first spin. The symbols will be familiar to any player who has had the chance to enjoy Monopoly in its original board game version, as they are mostly made out of little figurines used to move across the board. You’ll see battleships, cars, top hats, trains, dogs, cats, rubber ducky symbols, penguins and T-Rex icons. Mr. Monopoly and the Wild symbol with two dice offer the highest of payouts and take the blame for most of the special feature action in the game. They are accompanies by two more extra symbols – an animated background that looks like blurry rainfall and a yellow arrow which is tied to the Wild and doesn’t appear on its own.

Gameplay

From the first moment you load the game, you can’t help but notice 3 colourful feature wheels above the grid and the five fixed jackpots to the right. These will undoubtedly add more suspense and more fun to your session. The big Spin button is also one the right, and you have the option to adjust your bet/line stake on every spin. Monopoly Mega Movers has 5 reels and 4 rows, and pays out for winning combinations across 30 lines. If you activate the Extra Bet feature, you’ll up the stakes but also the payouts, especially in the bonus wheel rounds. There are no Autoplay or Gamble options available, but the gameplay is dynamic enough so you won’t feel as if there was something missing.

Bonus Features

The Mr. Monopoly symbol appears stacked and the Wild can have arrows showing in which direction it will expand, covering positions around it. The more arrows you see on screen, the bigger the expansion and the payout. Imagine a 3×3 block of Wilds and your payout blowing up! However, the major bonus feature in Monopoly Mega Movers is the Wheel. You need to land background special symbols to trigger the 3 In a Row Wheel, the 4 In a Row Wheel or the 5 In a Row Wheel. Which one gets activated depends on the number of triggering symbols. The 3 In a Row Wheel offers the following prizes: a Wild Spin Bonus feature (1 free spin with 3 or 4 extra Wilds), 5 or 7 free spins, one of the Mini or Minor jackpots or an upgrade to the 4 In a Row Wheel.

The 4 In a Row Wheel can award you with 1 free spin with 4 or 5 extra Wilds, 10 or 12 free spins, one of the Major or Minor jackpots or an upgrade to the 5 In a Row Wheel. Once at the 5 In a Row Wheel, you can win a re-spin with 5 and 12 extra Wilds, 15, 20 or 50 free spins or a chance to win a Major, Mega or Grand jackpot.

Verdict
