There’s a glitzy feel to the design in Monopoly Big Money Reel. Flanked by stacks of notes and coins, the plain blue reels feature plenty of symbols which will be familiar if you’ve ever played the famous board game. In order of value are thimbles, shoes, wheelbarrows, top hats, cars, boats and planes.
They’re joined by Scotty the dog, a hotel and Mr Monopoly. These spin in full stacks. Mr Monopoly is the top payer, awarding 7.5 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline. There’s also a wild. The 20, 50, 100, 200 or 500 Monopoly Notes are the scatters. As usual for slot games in this franchise, you’ll find plenty of extras in Monopoly Big Money Reel.
Mystery Bills feature – on any spin, you could see extra Monopoly notes added to the reels. All the notes can transform into the same one to deliver a cash bonus. Depending on the size of the note, you’ll receive an award of 5, 10, 15, 20 or 50 times your total stake.

Spin the special reel – depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll win a cash prize of between 5 and 25 times your stake which will be receive a multiplier boost, the size of which depends on the combination of scatters from the triggering spin. You could also trigger the Utility Bonus feature or the Go Free Spins Bonus feature here.

Re-triggers are possible here too. You’re guaranteed to win at least 10 times your stake here but you’ll usually pocket something more impressive.
WMS’ Monopoly-themed slot games usually feature plenty of extras and that’s certainly the case here. There’s a good variety of bonus features on offer and there’s a luxurious feel to the design. If you’ve enjoyed the other titles in this series, then you can expect more of the same in Monopoly Big Money Reel which combines classy looks with some interesting gameplay. Personally, I would recommend you try Monopoly Once Around Deluxe which is my favourite.
