Monopoly Once Around Deluxe Slots Game by WMS Gaming

Williams Interactive Gaming has brought all the bitter rivalry to life on the online and mobile screen with Monopoly Once Around Deluxe. Luckily you don’t run the risk of creating permanent damage to relationships by playing this slot however.
Monopoly Once Around Deluxe has five reels and fifteen paylines all of which are optional and can be played for up to one coin per line. This gives the game a maximum wager of 15 coins per spin. The coin values themselves go from 0.15 up to 75 that makes Monopoly Once Around Deluxe a bit of an expensive game to pay if you wish to bet big and maybe hit the special features. It is also quite a confusing game, so maybe not best for beginners.
The monocle wearing Monopoly Man and his white dog represent good old-fashioned class, and that’s what Monopoly Once Around Deluxe tries to portray with its graphics and feel. Of course the actual game board plays a big role in the graphics, and has been done in crisp animation to look as close to the real thing as possible. The rest of the graphics are also all sharply designed and stand out against the black back drop to both the reels and the symbols. The buttons at the bottom of the screen are done in a milk chocolate brown wood effect with gold edging which adds to the feeling of opulence. Cool jazz flows through your devices speakers as a soundtrack to your monopolizing.
Game Based Symbols
All the symbols in Monopoly Once Around Deluxe are theme based, as it should be since there is no shortage of them to chose from. The least lucrative symbols in the game are the basic game pieces; the boot, the car and the dog. All symbols in Monopoly Once Around Deluxe pay out depending on your wagering amount, and not a set amount of coins. After the game tokens you get Water and Electricity, which were buyable properties in the actual board game. Free parking and the Railway Station are next up and worth the same amount, falling slightly behind the Dice and the Ring which are the top paying base game symbols.
Special Symbols and Features
The Monopoly Man himself is the games wild, and will replace all other symbols except the scatter and the bonus as well as being the best paying symbol in the game.
The Chance and Community Chest symbols are both scatters, and do not give out free spins but pay out scatter wins for up to five of them in a row.
Once Around Bonus Feature and Side Bets
The bonus symbol will launch the actual Monopoly game, where you have to choose your token and go around the board as if you were playing in real life. Roll the dice, and if it takes you past Go then you collect all your prizes. This is where the game gets a bit confusing. You are also able to make side bets when travelling around the board by means of buying houses or hotels on properties on the board. These cost extra, but if you land on one you will receive a multiplier to the amount that it cost you to build.
