The WMS Monopoly Once Around Deluxe slot gives you another chance to enjoy the family feuding board game, online and in the palm of your hand.
You know exactly what you’ll find when you open this video slot; all the symbols around the Monopoly board game. You’ve got the dog, the car, and the boot along with symbols representing the most sought after train stations, electricity company, and water works.
You’ve also got the free parking symbol, the income tax diamond ring, and two scatter represented by the community chest and chance symbols. So far it sounds quite similar to the Super Monopoly Money slot, which is also created by WMS, and provides you with another take on this familiar theme.
However, this Monopoly game is set on the dark cityscape, and rewards you with only a single bonus game that at appears often, and potentially provide you with some decent wins.
But where you will get the most wins in the base game is thanks to those high paying scatters which occur often thanks to their being two of them. But of course, let’s never forget to be grateful to the wild symbol which creates plenty of wins that top up your balance nicely.
More on those in a moment because there seems to be a big difference between the online slot and the mobile version.
We’ve played on both versions of this game and one thing that we’ve noticed before we even get to the bonus games is the difference between the return to player rates.
The online slot comes with a pretty dismal 92.03% RTP, where as the mobile version comes with a much better 95.95%.
Why the big difference? We’re not sure, but one thing we know is that the wins in the base game seem to appear more, and are bigger, whilst playing on mobile phone and tablet than they do online.
And that RTP difference is carried across to the bonus game too, where the online slot rises to 94% the mobile rises to 97%, providing the 40x – 60x wins we’d expect – compared to our frequently dismal 5x – 20x in the desktop game.
Now our rant is over, lets have a look at the Monoopoly Once Around Deluxe slot bonus game in more detail.
The only bonus game in this Monopoly Once Around Deluxe slot game is that of a simple roll the dice, move around the board, and win cash prizes, type of game.
Find 3 Mr Monopoly holding two dice bonus symbols on one of the 15 paylines, and you’ll trigger the bonus where you get to pick your symbol from the dog, boot, hat, cat and car.
Once you’ve done that it’s time to either roll the dice or just press the auto roll button and watch your board piece move along the board.
How much you win per spin depends on the values of the properties; much like in the real board game where landing on Mayfair will pay more than landing on Bow Street.
If you land on a community chest or chance you can be awarded with between 15x – 100x your line bet, advanced to GO or moved to Mayfair, Park Lane, Pall Mall, Trafalgar Square or Whitechapel Road or back to Old Kent Road.
Now here’s where the Monopoly bonus game gets a little more interesting. If you get the exact number on the dice to land on GO, you will get another chance and go Twice Around the Monopoly board.
This time though all wins are doubled, providing better returns. If however, you don’t land on GO with the exact number of moves the bonus game ends and you take your winnings.
What we’ve just described is the simplest version of the game, you can go a little more complicated using side bets and placing houses on specific properties around the board.
Each property is valued differently and, if you land on one of the properties you’ve placed a house or hotel on, you will get to pick rent cheques with more wins.
We’ve had better luck getting more from the bonus game on mobile with up to 60x our bet in total, whilst the online version has only provided 27x our bet max.
There is more on offer don’t get us wrong but it feels like a challenge to recreate some truly huge wins.
To be honest we’d prefer to play on the Super Monopoly Money slot machine, the wins and game play are more entertaining, and bring lots of different aspects to the game you can enjoy.
Don’t get us wrong though, this WMS slot game is still impressive in it’s own right. The graphics, sounds and animations are crisp and sharp, allowing you to enjoy some decent spins throughout the base game.
A betting range of 0.15 up to 30.00 per spin accommodates a wide range of budget, whilst more experience gamblers will enjoy being able to place high side bets for big returns.
That said, the bonus game is essentially just a pick me bonus, so if you love free spins or lots of features you are better off trying something like the Nemo’s Voyage slot machine.
Still, the wins might not be that big at times, but the potential is still here to win huge if you land the right symbols and add a few side bets with houses and hotels.
