Everyone loves Monopoly, even if games with your family sometimes go on for hours and end in disputes! Released in 2019 by Evolution Gaming, Monopoly Live combines your favourite board game with the popular Dream Catcher to bring you a truly unique gaming experience. Monopoly Live is fully legal in South Africa as it has been licensed by the NGB. In this guide, you will learn about Monopoly Live, how the game works, and where you can play today.
How to play Monopoly Live
The Monopoly Live Casino game might seem complicated but once you’ve watched a few rounds you’ll soon get the hang of it. Before your game host spins the Monopoly Live wheel, you must place bets to predict in which segment the flapper is going to stop. If it lands on your number, your payout corresponds with the number you hit multiplied by the size of your bet (1=2x, 2=3x, 5=6x, 10=11x). You only have about 10 seconds to place your bets before the wheel spins, so get your money down quickly!
On the Monopoly Live wheel there are also ‘Chance’ segments, which you cannot bet on but can be great ones to hit! When the wheel stops here, you’re presented with a Chance card by Mr. Monopoly which is either a random cash prize or a random multiplier bonus on the next spin.
Playing the Bonus Game
To enter the Bonus game, you must place a winning bet on ‘2 Rolls’ or ‘4 Rolls’. When the Bonus game is activated, you will join Mr. Monopoly in an augmented reality world where he walks around the 3D board collecting prizes, multipliers and more for you.
The amount of spaces he moves is determined by your roll of the dice. If you roll doubles, you’ll get an extra roll and the chance to win more. If you have not placed a qualifying bet to enter the Bonus Game and the flapper lands on ‘2 Rolls’ or ‘4 Rolls’, you’ll still be able to watch what happens but won’t win any prizes.
Monopoly Live Strategy
There are many ways you can approach betting on spins in a Monopoly Live strategy, depending on how much money you want to risk, and how quickly you’re looking to win big. Our favourite Monopoly live strategy is to bet 1 unit each on numbers 1 and 2 (more common on the wheel) and 1 unit each on ‘2 Rolls’ and ‘4 Rolls’.
This way we can spread our risk evenly, hopefully winning small amounts regularly to keep us in the game long enough to eventually hit the big one!
Another strategy is to go after bonus games. The bonus game strategy is backing only the bonus games of 2 rolls and 4 rolls. This tactic will see you lose a lot of spins but profit when the wheel lands on one of the bonus rounds, as these can pay more than 100x times your stake. This strategy is perfect for those wanting to hit a big win using the auto spin function.
Another popular strategy is to keep your selections locked in by using the Auto bet function. The auto bet function lets you place the same bet for a number of rounds without having to manually place your bets. You can set the betting amount as well as how many rounds you’d like to play. Currently you can set an auto play of 5, 10, 25 or 50 rounds. Just remember to click the start button to set the auto play in action.
