Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. And, well, probably best not to play this Monopoly Big Money Reel mobile slot unless you have some serious cash to burn.
You know what? Scientific Games have been really hit and miss with their Monopoly slot games, mostly because the brand is recognisable, but if it fails to impress, you’ll probably never open it again.
So this Monopoly Big Money Reel slot game fails to impress. Not because the theme isn’t good. After all, you have 5 reels, 4 rows and 20 pay lines full of familiar symbols.
The top three high paying symbols come stacked 3 high, covering the whole reel many times. What’s not to love?
We know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but when we think Monopoly we think ‘money’, ‘luxury’ and even, ‘ruthless’.
Other than the slots’ theme there is very little of that here. The highest paying symbols pay out just 7.5 times your bet on one payline, leaving you feeling like jail might be more worthwhile.
And sure, there are banknotes everywhere, but they come randomly and rarely do more than trigger a simple wheel of fortune game that is all dazzle but no razzle.
The money values on the wheel can be decent, but have we won more than 5 times our bet? No. And we played for longer than we probably needed to.
The Monopoly Big Money Reel free spins are, we give you, quite good fun, because all the bank notes floating lazily around are actually collected on each spin.
But even then, we’ve seen nothing much more than 20x our bet.
Maybe we were unlucky, maybe we’ve seen the collect feature done better in the Coins of Egypt slot by NetEnt. Either way, this is all look no substance type of casino game.

Wilds: The diamond 'W' is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols anywhere on the reel in order to create wins. It replaces all symbols except the note symbols.
Stacked High Paying Symbol: Mr Monopoly, the Tower and the Dog symbol all come stacked 3 symbols high.
Mystery Bill Feature: On any spins Monopoly Money Notes of the value of 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 may be added to the reels.
Monopoly Big Money Reel Spin Bonus: Any combination of 5 or more scattered notes above allows you to spin the big money wheel.
These notes are then collected and added to the big money wheel, allowing you to win that cash, and maybe even some multipliers along the way.
But what you really want to trigger is:
The big money wheel stops paying out when you get collect from Mr Monopoly's hand or the free spins.
We know that the casino game studio WMS can do so much better than this. Why they were given a big branded slot game but not told to actually pay out is beyond us.
Time for this Mr to head into retirement and let another tycoon take its place.
So why did we give it two stars? Well, because it looks nice and it's not without a few fun bonus features. Just not enough fun wins to make it more than passable.
