Epic Monopoly II Pokie Review
If we tried to explain every feature of the Epic Monopoly II pokie in detail then it might take longer than an average game of – well – Monopoly. So we will try to give you a brief flavour of what’s on offer from this, the latest Monopoly themed release from Scientific Gaming.
If you are familiar with any of the other titles in this series such as Super Monopoly Money or Monopoly Once Around Deluxe then you will know to expect great graphics and lots of bonus features from this title.
Epic Monopoly 2 flawlessly transfers the exciting interactive game play of the land based version into the virtual world, and this 5 reel pokie with 100 pay-lines attracts a lot of attention in both incarnations.
The first thing you will notice about this game is that you’ve got a main reel set (5 reels x 4 lines) plus a colossal reel set (5 reels x 12 lines),which is a feature shared by a number of pokies from WMS Gaming (now a subsidiary of SG), such as Australia Colossal Reels and Battleship to name but two.
You can win on both of the reel sets, meaning that Mr Monopoly is your guide to the numerous ways to win, including free spins, multipliers and bonus games, all in the company of those iconic Monopoly symbols.
About The game
Coins Range:0.01 to 5.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:10/No
Epic Wild Symbol: if you are fortunate enough to find any Epic Wild symbols on either reel, they can be used to substitute for any of the regular Monopoly symbols.
As a further bonus, sometimes the Epic Wild symbols cover an entire reel on the main reel set, and when this happens the corresponding reel on the colossal reel set is also covered entirely with Wild symbols. Having a 12 line reel covered in Wilds will quite clearly offer an abundance of potential winning combos.
Epic Wheel Bonus: the appearance of 3 or more Bonus Monopoly board symbols across both reel sets trigger the Epic Wheel Bonus game. It may take you a while to come across the three Scatter symbols, but the bonus game is certainly worth waiting for.
You spin the big wheel to find which prize you have won, from a selection including multipliers, free spins and dice rolls for the Around the Board Bonus.
Around the Board Bonus: this feature allows you to experience an approximation of the Monopoly board game we all remember. You can win up to 10 throws of the dice which set you on a journey around the board, passing familiar street names, utilities, chance, free parking, community chest and of course the dreaded ‘Go t o Jail’ square.
You win multiplier rewards from all of the squares you land on (except ‘go to jail’, which is never a rewarding experience) and you can also win extra dice rolls. And yes, there is a generous multiplier reward every time you pass Go.
The graphics on display are absolutely first class, and the unusual game engine makes this a visually arresting game from the start. The Monopoly characters are lovingly rendered, and the expanding wild symbols offer lots of winning possibilities.
However the game really comes into its own with the bonus games which capture the spirit of the original board game.
Epic Monopoly 2 is a volatile pokie, so you may have to wait for a while to see those bonus games but you’ll have fun when you get the chance to go around that Monopoly board, picking up cash prizes along the way.
A classic board game is well served by this excellent pokie addition to the Monopoly family.
