Based on the ever-popular board game, Monopoly Heights is a 5 reel video slot from Bally Technologies. Any win that includes the Mr Monopoly symbol results in an extra row being added to the reels. These can reach up to 8 rows high and offer up to 32,768 ways to win. Landing 2 scatters triggers the pick me round where prizes of up to 2,500 times your bet can be won. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile device from between 25p and £100 per spin.
With a skyline filled with skyscrapers in the background, you’ll see A to J royal values alongside the free parking car, a ring and stacks of cash. The diamond, Monopoly Heights logo and Mr Monopoly symbols are the game’s top payers. They each award a payout equal to your total stake if you land 5 in combination. Helping to create those winners is the wild which can land anywhere apart from reel 1. There are 2 extras on offer in Monopoly Heights
Expanding Reels feature – this becomes active every time you land a winner that includes the Mr Monopoly symbol. He’ll give the top of the reels a whack with his cane and add an extra row. The symbols from the triggering spin are held and new symbols added to the new row.
If more Mr Monopoly symbols land to create another winner, the process is repeated. This reel expansion can happen multiple times. If they reach their maximum dimensions, they will be 8 rows high which offers 32,768 ways to win.
Jackpot feature – this triggers when you land the red hotel scatter on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin. It could also trigger if you land 1 scatter but that’s not guaranteed. Once active, you’ll be taken to a new screen where you’ll get to choose from 32 Bonus cards. Behind each card is a Mini, Minor, Major or Grand symbol. Each one that’s picked is added to a meter. The first meter filled awards the associated Jackpot prize:
- Grand Fill 8 meter spaces = 2,500 x total bet
- Major Fill 5 meter spaces = 125 x total bet
- Minor Fill 4 meter spaces = 25 x total bet
- Mini Fill 3 meter spaces = 10 x total bet
We’ve found some of Bally’s branded video slots overly complex. That’s not the case with Monopoly Heights which is very simple. This isn’t a game if you’re looking for a wealth of extras. If on the other hand, you want something straightforward and familiar, then Monopoly Heights fits the bill rather well. I would rather play Bally’s other branded titles like Michael Jackson: King of Pop or Titanic.
