Monopoly Once Around Deluxe
Monopoly Once Around Deluxe by WMS
There was a bit of a sense of disappointment in the air when the licence for Monopoly branded slot games transferred from IGT to WMS, primarily because IGT’s games would be gone for good and the developer had built up quite the selection already. Players thought that it would take a while for the same levels of choice to make their way online again – but they needn’t have worried. Here we are with Once Around Deluxe and, at the time of writing, we’ve got our hands on the third release of 2015 and probably the final one given that it’s the middle of December!
The game looks normal enough on first glance, although 3D versions of the houses and hotels serving as the backdrop on the game is certainly a nice touch. Mr Monopoly appears in a couple of different iterations on the board, once as the wild card and also as the bonus symbol too and he’s joined by various familiar symbols. The playing pieces deserve a special mention at this point as they can not only pay out a decent amount in their own right, but you can also grab smaller but still impressive mixed wins for three or more on one of the fifteen win lines.
Go Once Around in the Bonus Game
With a name like this game has, you’d expect the first opportunity in WMS’s history to actually go around the iconic Monopoly board and it’s fair to say that this title delivers. Three bonus symbols in view at once will launch the main event and the first job is to choose a playing piece to represent you. In classic fashion, it’s all about rolling the dice and moving around the board, but with a few special twists thrown in. For example, if you land on Go then a special award will be made before the round comes to an end, while landing on Go to Jail actually prevents the player from scooping any wins! Chance and Community Chest cards can also throw a bonus your way, including instant wins and moving to specific spaces.
The very best thing about the Once Around Deluxe feature is the chance to place extra bets in the form of houses or hotels on certain properties. This uses money from your regular balance to increase the value of properties and if you then go on to land on them then you’ll definitely reap the rewards, which are represented by rental payments. Simply choose one and scoop a massive instant prize on top of any standard awards!
As noted, there are already some different WMS Monopoly slot games up for grabs here at PLG and we have to say that this one has instantly become our favourite, simply because of the board integration! There is plenty to do, which isn’t always the case on slot games by any stretch, and players can actually get the feeling of having a major impact on the outcome of a given bonus round. It’s worth a free try if nothing else and you don’t need to go anywhere in order to do that as you can play it right now here on this page!
