Not another Monopoly slot! But wait, what’s this? A game that gives you the best of both worlds? Say hello to the Monopoly Megaways mobile slot.
We know we’ve given this game a 5-star game review, but it comes with a small asterisk – you need to know how Megaways slots work. We won’t explain it here, but it’s a big game with 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win.
What we loved straight away is the fact that when you open this up, you’ll find Mr. Monopoly standing below the reels on the family board game you know and love.
You won’t have to choose whether you’re the shoe or the hat, and you have to be nice. But you can own every property on the board and feel like the king of the world.
The Monopoly Megaways slot has avalanching wins. Meaning every win, the symbols disappear and more tumble from above, giving you a chance at another successful spin.
You won’t win much in these avalanches. Maybe you’ll get your bet back. But there are a lot of wins, making you feel like there’s a lot of action.
Meanwhile, for every win, Mr. Monopoly moves around the board. So a win on reels 1, 2, and 3 will move Mr. Monopoly 3 spaces.
If he lands on a Utility or Train station, you own it straight away. If you land on a property on a third avalanche, you’ll get a house on that property. This all matters for when you get to the free spins.
How? By getting five houses on any property. Then things get interesting.
So on most Megaways games, every win in the free spin bonus will increase the multiplier by one. It’s great, but it can be a pretty slow process.
Here you get a little bit of a headstart as every train station you own when you trigger the Monopoly Megaways bonus games gives you extra free spins. If you own the Utilities, you get an additional multiplier to start with.
But that’s not all. As you play the free spins, every house you land on will increase the multiplier, as will the Utilities – the train stations give you extra spins.
It’s a wonderful way to bring the board game alive while still keeping those elements that make Megaways video slot so popular. Namely the potential to get huge multipliers like in the Bonanza Megaways Slot.
Better yet, this Monopoly Megaways slot has an ace up its sleeve – namely the Chance, where you can trigger the free spins straight away or get a singular spin with a guaranteed 117649 ways to win, go to another property, or head straight to GO.
And who doesn’t love that feeling of going straight to GO, not going to jail, and just becoming the biggest property Tycoon?

Avalanching Reels: Every win will explode and more symbol will tumble from above. This can create another win, or not. If it does, the avalanching continues.
Wild: The 'M' is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol on the reels.
Moving Around The Board: Mr Monopoly will move along the board according to how many wins you get. A win on reel 1, 2 and 3 will move Mr Monopoly by 3 cases.
Free Spin Trigger: Whenever a 5th house is added to a property you trigger 8 free spins with a 1x multiplier. You can also trigger this free spin with a Chance Card. But then you might get extras:
During the free spins, the multiplier is increased by 1 for each house on every property that you lands during the free spins.
At the end of the free spins game, you lose ownership of all the train stations and utilities, but the houses you didn't land on stay on the board.
This is probably one of the best Monopoly slots around. Mostly because BTG has managed to do something the others haven't: namely, make you feel like you're playing on a slot AND a board game simultaneously.
For that alone, we'd give it an extra star, but add the 117649 ways to win, and the fact that you use up all the cases on the monopoly board gives this Monopoly Megaways slot review the full 5 stars.
It takes a little while to get used to the idea of how the multipliers and free spin work, but once you get your head around it, you may find that you don't want to play on any other Megaways phone slots again.
That said, if you're not a fan of this style or just starting in video slots, maybe try something a little easier on the wallet like the Wings of Riches slot by NetEnt.
`Or perhaps try some of the other Big Time Gaming slots.
