Evolution Gaming, the leader in Live Casino solutions, takes the world’s most popular board game and brings it to Live Casino gaming. In association with SG and Hasbro, Evolution has launched Monopoly Live, a unique live casino game that is set out to redefine live casino gaming experience.
Created in partnership with Hasbro and with a sublicense from SG, Monopoly Live presents the perfect mix of live casino and board gaming. Available only from Evolution, Monopoly Live is a special edition of Dream Catcher money wheel, a successful live game by the developer.
Players will get to enjoy the suspense and the excitement of the board game enhanced with 3D and augmented reality advanced technologies.
A live host will be the one that spins the super-sized wheel, and the player will need to predict the segment on which the wheel will stop. There are segments with numbers, as well as the ‘2 Rolls’ and ‘4 Rolls’ spots. For the correct guess, the player will receive the corresponding payout.
The ‘Chance’ segments are also present. If the wheel stops at ‘Chance’, Mr.Monopoly gives the player a card that either reveals a cash prize or the Multiplier Bonus. If the player gets the Multiplier Bonus, the host spins the wheel again, and the winnings of that spin get multiplied. If the wheel in that spin stops at the Multiplier segment, the Multiplier gets multiplied.
In case the wheel stops at the ‘2 Rolls’ and ‘4 Rolls’ segments for which the player has placed a bet, the 3D Bonus round will become active. This is when the game takes Mr.Monopoly and the player to augmented reality, in a 3D Monopoly World. Here, the player sees the 3D board with the familiar elements from Monopoly, the hotels, houses, Super Tax, Jail, Chance, Community Chest and GO elements. This is when Multipliers, prizes and other rewards are given to the player.
