Popular in bingo halls and amusement arcades, Monopoly Hot Properties is a £100 jackpot slot machine from SG-Gaming. Very similar in style to many of their other slot machines, Monopoly Hot Properties uses three reels and five win lines to award prizes up to £100 on multiple stakes. Play from 25p per spin, 50p or £1, with a slight increase in RTP the higher the stake. Wins are made across the three reels, with three in a row paying a prize.
The simplicity of Monopoly Hot Properties and the frequency of its features are what keeps it popular amongst many slot players. The game has an especially large following amongst female slot machine fans hence its popularity in bingo halls and town arcades. There are two features on this Monopoly themed slot, the first and by far the most common is the wild pick game. Offering one or two wild reels, choose the reels you wish to make wild for the maximum possible winning combination. The wilds can also hold over to add more wins, although it does occasionally offer nothing with the bonus spin.
The second feature is the community bonus, which once awarded is played by all active players of the same game. To stay active, you’ll see an icon on the screen, and as long as you press start within five seconds, you’ll remain part of the ‘community’. If it is just you playing, it doesn’t really matter, but if there are several players then it is a good idea to remain as ‘active’. The community bonus awards a series of properties, each with cash values. Everyone playing will experience different awards and prizes, and although the £100 jackpot is possible on all of the stakes, the odds of winning are higher when played on £1.
Once the bonus is over all money is banked and the game progresses as before. If you or any other player reached the £100 jackpot, they are awarded one repeat chance for a total prize of £200. The repeat is fairly generous and appears to be 50/50, but whether those are true odds remains to be seen.
All in all Monopoly Hot Properties is a good fun slot machine, taking its lead from similar community based slot games, with a simple easy to understand approach. Not available to play online, Hot Properties can be found on the Triple 7 cabinet in bingo halls and arcades across the U.K.
