Getminted online casino has added yet another branded multi-line slot machine to its repertoire of games. Branded games prove to be very popular amongst slot machine fans and Getminted can't go wrong in introducing Monopoly “Here and Now”, a 20-payline slot game celebrating 70 years of the world's most popular board game. It is Getminted's third Monopoly themed game. The site already offers Monopoly On-TheRoll and Monopoly "Pass Go Bonus".
The first Monopoly board game was sold in 1930 and its design and game elements reflected the times it was created. Since then, although keeping the principal idea intact, the Monopoly board has changed many times. We have all seen The Simpsons or Star Wars themed games and the new online version mirrors modern times.
Players can score property deeds to earn apartments and hotels on modern day properties including Hammersmith, Saville Row and Kensington Palace Gardens, as well as choose a range of new game pieces including a mobile phone, roller blade or even a cheeseburger!
Monopoly Here & Now has 20 paylines and you can bet 1-5 credits on each payline. In your quest to own it all, spin the reels to help build apartments and hotels on properties, and boost the Free Parking Bonus.
As you play Monopoly Here & Now, symbols with property deed sub-symbols may appear on the first three reels. When three such symbols land on an active payline, Mr. Monopoly pulls a random deed out of his coat, and throws the deed on the board. The corresponding property earns an upgrade. Your line bet on the winning sub-symbol line determines how large of an upgrade you receive on that property - one to four apartments or a hotel.
When a property upgrade is earned, one of the unimproved properties is randomly chosen to earn that upgrade. In the case where all properties have been upgraded, Mr. Monopoly randomly chooses one of the already upgraded properties to receive more apartments or another hotel.
Free Parking Jackpot
In the upper left corner of the screen are the Free Parking Bonus meters. The last three reels have yellow, orange and red Free Parking symbols that increment the bonus meters with the amount shown on the symbol. The value on each Free Parking symbol is based upon your bet size. The bigger your bet, the bigger the meter increment.
The first time you play Monopoly Here & Now, the Free Parking meters start at 100, 200 and 500, respectively. If the payline that first activates the Board Bonus has 2 or more credits, additional credits add to the Jackpot Accumulator. This one-time boost corrects the original reset amount to be commensurate with your bonus-winning bet.
When three Board Bonus dice symbols land on an active payline, choose a pair of dice to determine how many times you get to roll the dice in the Board Bonus.
Land on properties in the Board Bonus to get paid the value of the property and any property upgrades. Properties retain their value and property upgrades until the current Board Bonus round ends. Land on Free Parking and you're going to the Free Parking Bonus!
Free Parking Jackpot
Landing on Free Parking in the Board Bonus gives you the chance to win one of the Free Parking Bonus jackpots. Spin the wheel to determine which colour car moves forward towards its meter. The first car to move forward three times and reach its meter earns you the corresponding jackpot.
After a jackpot is won, only its meter is reset based on the line bet that triggered the Board Bonus. During the same Board Bonus round you can win more than one Free Parking jackpot by landing on Free parking again. The other Free Parking meters retain their value until they are won or the bonus ends. Similarly, all meters reset based on that line bet upon returning to the 5-reel game from the Board Bonus.
Go To Jail
If you land on Go To Jail or receive a Go To Jail card from Community Chest, you go directly to Jail without passing GO. If you land in Jail on your last roll of the dice, the bonus ends. If you land in Jail with dice rolls remaining, you have up to three chances to roll doubles in order to escape, depending upon how many total rolls you have left. Each dice roll within Jail reduces your total number of rolls. If you run out of rolls before escaping from Jail, your Board Bonus ends at that point. If you succeed in rolling doubles, your piece moves that number of spaces starting from Just Visiting. If you do not roll doubles within three rolls, your piece is moved to Just Visiting. If you have rolls remaining, you may continue rolling and moving around the board.
Landing on GO
If you land on GO you earn one extra roll.
Landing on Chance or Community Chest
If you land on Chance or Community Chest, a corresponding card is randomly drawn. A given card can move your game piece, or reward you with an extra roll or additional credits.
As you make your way around the board you might land on the same property twice or even get to play the Free Parking Bonus again!
Leaving the Board Bonus
When you've completed your rolls and exited the Board Bonus, all apartments and hotels are removed, and the Free Parking meters are reset proportional to the bet size on the pay line that triggered the bonus.
If you end a Monopoly Here & Now play session with property upgrades on the Board Bonus or extra money in the Free Parking Bonus meters, this equity remains available until you return to the game at the same denomination.
After any award less than 3000 credits, you have the opportunity to Gamble your win in a completely fair round of double or nothing.
Click the GAMBLE button after a win to gamble an award. A deck of Gamble cards appears which always contains an equal number of red and black aces. Click RED or BLACK to guess which colour ace will appear next. If the colour you predicted is revealed, then your gambled money is doubled! If the other colour is revealed, then your Gamble bet is forfeited and the Gamble round is concluded.
Click the TAKE HALF button to deposit half of your winnings back into your main balance, leaving the other half available for further gambling. You can click TAKE HALF once before each Gamble try.
Click the TAKE WIN button to collect all of your winnings in play and end the Gamble round.
If you win 5 gambles in a row within the same Gamble round, or if your Gamble award reaches 3000 or higher, your Gamble round automatically ends.
With the deck of cards you have a 50:50 chance of revealing either a red or black ace with every choice. Though the history of the last fourteen outcomes (red, black) is also provided, each card chosen is completely independent.
