Monopoly Dream Life Slot Review


Monopoly Dream Life is no longer available to play online from the 1st of May 2015. IGT have lost their license to offer Monopoly-themed slots with Scientific Games winning the rights. They operate Barcrest and WMS Gaming with Monopoly Big Event (by Barcrest) being the first Monopoly slot to be released under the new agreement.

Monopoly Dream Life is an IGT-powered video slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Live the high life with the excitement of the FreeFall Symbols feature and the power of the Stacked Wilds feature. You can play from 20p a spin to £500 a spin and it has a Dream Life Bonus feature which is a free spins games.

Monopoly Dream Life uses the FreeFall Symbols feature which triggers on any winning spin. Winning symbols in the winning combination will disappear will empty spaces filled as symbols cascade from above. This means you can win time and time again from 1 spin. The feature will repeat until no winning combinations appear.

The game also benefits from the Stacked Wilds feature meaning that wilds appear stacked on the reels. This will lead to richer wins. However, the main focus is the Dream Life Bonus feature which is triggered by getting 3 bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. You will ride the elevator up to Mr Monopoly’s penthouse.

You will then choose from 16 face-down property cards. Each card will give you a certain number of free spins based on its colour. If you get a pair of the same colour, you will get higher free spins. Anyway, you need to build a hand of 4 cards with the choice to discard up to 2 cards. You can get up to 16 free spins in total. The good thing about this feature is that the free spin reels are richer with more stacks of Wild symbols than in the base game reels.

Despite decent wins being achieved in the free spins feature, I found this to be a low medium slot with smaller wins given quite frequently. I like a bit more ‘bite’ from the slots I play so would opt for higher variance games like Zeus by WMS. If you like branded slots, you should try The Dark Knight Rises by Microgaming.
