Bringing together the much loved boardgame with online slots, this fantastic Monopoly Megaways game has everything you could wish for - jam packed with features plus high volatility and 96.39% RTP. Take a trip around the board to make your fortune but don’t go to jail!
Monopoly Megaways History
We’ve all played it and we all love - or hate - it. Pushing your little dog or hat or boat around the board being as greedy and cutthroat as possible is part of everyone’s memories although the nickname Monotony wasn’t far off the mark sometimes. It’s interesting that the original game designed by Elizabeth Magie was supposed to warn of the dangers of capitalism and not embrace them.
Monopoly remains the highest selling privately patented board game ever produced - Parker Brothers released a version of the game designed and printed on a tablecloth by Charles Darrow at the height of the US depression in the 1930s. There are specialist sets commemorating cultural icons from Doctor Who to Pokemon. Metallica have their own version and there are Star Wars and Star Trek versions to enjoy. You can even build your own board or bank with debit cards!
This much loved game is now played in 114 countries and 47 different languages, making it a truly global phenomenon. Of course, the properties and other features change according to country but the basic gameplay remains unchanged and that’s what BTG bring to the reels in Monopoly Megaways.
Monopoly Megaways Sounds & Visuals
In terms of the look and feel of this slot, BTG have got things pitch perfect. When you load the game, there’s the familiar board (UK version) plus that iconic typography. Quite clearly this is a branded Monopoly game and we can see we’re in for a treat.
Click the Continue button to access the game proper and you’re confronted with a classic Megaways 6 reel layout, plus a strip at the bottom of the screen that represents the classic Monopoly board and our old friend Mr Monopoly. And this is the genius of this slot. The Reel Adventures mechanic makes perfect sense here, integrating the traditional board game with the digital reels.
We’ll even forgive BTG for adding some shiny royals to the reels because the rest of the design is so perfectly realised and correct in every detail. The dog, surely everyone’s favourite playing piece, the iconic car, the boat and of course Mr Monopoly’s top hat are the high paying symbols.
If you’ve ever wondered what the board game might sound like beyond the inevitable family arguments, BTG have added a snazzy jazzy sound track that evokes the roaring Twenties - it’s easy to imagine Mr Monopoly out on the town with a gaggle of flappers on his arm. Again, it’s the perfect accompaniment to this premium Monopoly slot that’s surely the best out there.
Bringing Monopoly to the Reels
BGT aren’t the first developer to bring Monopoly to the reels. In fact, there’s a plethora of Monopoly slots from studios including IGT, Scientific Gaming, Barcrest and WMS. Hasbro, the current holders of the Monopoly licence, obviously want to make as much moolah as possible - as do SG, who own both Barcrest and WMS. We’re guessing a licence for such a global property doesn’t come cheap so the slots conglomerate is getting its money’s worth.
The Monopoly brand is most closely associated with WMS, who’ve produced a ton of slots for the franchise, some more successful than others. Their Once Around Deluxe slot is labelled as the ‘most popular in the world’ and features a 97% RTP to get players excited.
IGT bring their proprietary cascading reels mechanic to the Monopoly universe in Dream Life, while the Mega Jackpots version is linked into some of their all time classics including the mighty Cleopatra.
SG Social have taken the Monopoly universe a step further in their social Monopoly games that take players on Monopoly themed adventures to Ancient Greece or see them building a train station or staging a concert. For a game that’s been around for over 100 years, there’s life in the old dog and his master yet.
Monopoly Megaways Set Up
This is one of the best looking Monopoly slots out there and one of the easiest to set up thanks to BGT’s slimline interface. Everything is at your fingertips, from the essential paytable info on bonuses and payouts to the autoplay options up to 100 spins.
If you prefer to sit back and let the game take the strain, single win and loss limits are available so you can keep an eye on your bankroll. Playing is a breeze - select your stake between 0.20 and 40.00 per spin in the Stake menu and hit the spin button. It’s worth noting that every Reel Adventure depends on the stake your playing at so we’re guessing that the higher the stake, the more rewarding the progress.
Monopoly Megaways Paytable
Look out for the jewel encrusted M which is the Wild in this slot. With so many ways to win, the wild really comes into its own to complete those winning combos. There's no scatter symbol here - instead true to the spirit of the game, you’re looking to collect 5 houses on a property to trigger the all important free spins.
Megaways slots don’t necessarily offer the biggest base game rewards, for example the 6 of a kind payout for the dog is just a 0.9x multiplier, but the iconic topper rewards the patient player with 2, 5, 10, 20, 50x your stake when 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 of a kind land on the reels.
How To Win at Monopoly Megaways Slot
You’re looking to string together a series of Reactions here to move Mr Monopoly around the board picking up as many modifiers and properties as possible. Reactions are what BTG call cascading or tumbling reel wins and the principle is the same - winning symbols will highlight after a winning spin and then disappear off the reels allowing others to fall into their place. String together several reactions and not only will Mr M skedaddle around the board but you’ll also pick up extra houses if you land on a property on your third reaction win.
We like slots with a collector mechanism as it gives the player a fair chance to track their progress towards free spins. Monopoly Megaways is certainly quite complex when it comes to the modifiers available and we’ll look at them in more depth below, but the neat layout and easy to access information keeps you on top of your game at all times. You are in for the long haul because just like the original game, it can take a while to build up that property portfolio.
Monopoly Megaways RTP (Payout) & Volatility
Megaways games have a reputation for high volatility thanks to all those ways to win and Monopoly Megaways is no different. You can hit some massive wins in the free spins feature but you’ll wait a long time for them to trigger.
If volatility is all about risk and short term rewards, RTP is all about the long term. This theoretical figure is usually given as a percentage, with the RTP on offer here coming in at 96.39%. If you were to spin hundreds of thousands of games at an average stake of 100.00 you could expect a reward of 96.39 coins. Obviously it’s not a practical figure unless you have deep pockets and plenty of time, but it does give an indication of the returns you could expect and higher is better.
Understanding Megways Slots
Uniting Monopoly and Megaways seems an obvious decision when you consider just how popular they both are. Slots players have taken to the high volatility, many ways pays slots since the launch of Dragon Born in 2014 and there are some incredible Megaways games out there, including the awesome Holy Diver of which more later.
Megaways is the proprietary brainchild of Big Time Gaming, an Aussie software developer that likes to push the boundaries with their features. BTG have released some superb Megaways slots under their own label but have been clever enough to share the love and licensed the game mechanic to other studios including Blueprint Gaming who’ve created some great games of their own such as Vikings Unleashed and Temple of Treasure Megaways.
Megaways takes the any ways pays mechanic to the next level by constantly altering the number of symbols on the reels. Monopoly Megaways is fairly conventional in that each reel can have between 2 and 7 symbols - in some iterations different reels can have different minimum and maximum symbols.
In a conventional any ways pays slot, the number of symbols are fixed and multiplied by the number of reels to give the number of ways you can win on any spin - on a standard 5x3 grid that’s 3x3x3x3x3=243. Megaways slots can have varying numbers of symbols on the 6 reels with the maximum 7 giving 7x7x7x7x7x7=117,649 ways to win. But don’t worry - every Megaways slot clearly displays the number of winning ways available on each spin!
It’s obvious that Megaways gives the player more freedom - any matching symbols can land anywhere on adjacent reels for a winning combo. If that happens in a payline slot you’ll only register a win if they land in a specific pattern. You’ll find that Wilds become a particularly prized symbol because they can complete multiple wins. Your line wins will be smaller than in a conventional payline slot, but the overall rewards are bigger and you can play all ways wins slots for a fraction of the cost of payline slots.
If you love that feeling when you’ve landed a big win, then Megaways games make it easy to spot a huge payout - all wins read left to right from reel 1, and provided that there are matching symbols on reels 2 onwards, you can start celebrating without having to flip to the paytable to check.
Enjoy Reel Adventures
BTG introduced their latest feature Reel Adventures back in 2019. It debuted in Holy Diver, a complex adventure slot based on the Dio song, where the knight collects gems and other game enhancements as he progresses through the game in the horizontal reel under the game reels. When it was unveiled, the Reel Adventures mechanic was widely praised for taking slots play to a new level by introducing elements from Action/Adventure and arcade gaming to slots.
The Reel Adventure element in Monopoly Megaways is a match made in heaven because it really does bring a sense of playing the board game to the reels. Mr Monopoly marches along the board every time you land a winning spin collecting properties, utilities and train stations and unlocking the following modifiers:
- Go: land on Go to play the next spin with all 117,649 ways to win active
- Community Chest: you’ll be sent to a random property and 4 houses may be added
- Chance: enjoy a Max Megaways spin, random property or trigger the free spins feature
This feature has been simplified from Holy Diver but it works a treat here - in fact watching Mr Monopoly march around the board and then checking you inventory in the paytable is almost as much fun as spinning the reels.
Monopoly Megaways Bonuses In Depth
It’s worth drilling down into the bonus action on offer in this slot because there are so many options for players to get to grips with in the base game, Reel Adventures and free spins.
Reel Adventures: Every time you win, Mr M will march to the square under the rightmost winning reel. Depending on where he lands, you could be looking at the following features:
- - Go: the next spin is played with Max Megaways
- - Community Chest: arrive at a random property and earn between 1 and 4 houses
- - Chance: trigger Max Megaways, property search or free spins
- - Stations: land on a station once to own it and add +1 free spin to the free spins feature
- - Utilities: land on a utility to own it and add +1 or +2 to the starting multiplier in free spins
- - Property: land on a property on your third reaction and get a house added. Any extra reactions add more houses
Free Spins: there are two ways to trigger the free spins feature - by landing on Chance or by putting 5 houses on a property. You’ll start with 8 free spins or up to 12 if you own all 4 train stations plus additional spins for all properties with more than 5 houses. Every subsequent free spins bonus is played with an extra free spins so you’ll start your next adventure with at least 11 spins.
The starting win multiplier is 1x or 3x if you own both the utilities and as you move around the board during the free spins feature the win multiplier will increase by 1x for every house on any properties you land on. There are additional bonuses to trigger:
- - Go: play the next spin at Max Megaways
- - Station: land on a station you own and you’ll receive +1 spin for every train station you own
- - Utilities: land on a utility you own to add 1x multiplier, or 2x if you own them both
- - Community Chest: advance to a random property
- - Chance: awards you a Max Megaways spin, random property search or +5 free spins
- - Property: land on a property to increase the win multiplier by the number of houses on that property which are then removed
At the end of the free spins feature, you lose ownership of all utilities and stations. Any unvisited properties with houses retain their housing stock.
Monopoly Megaways Demo Play
Monopoly Megaways is available to play for free as a demo slot here at Slots Temple, with 1000 free play credits. We always recommend that you wager on between 150 and 200 demo spins before you decide whether or not you'd like to play any slots games at real-money casinos.
It should be fairly clear to see why playing Monopoly Megaways in demo mode is something you should do if you’re going to get to grips with the unusual gameplay, especially if an online casino is your ultimate destination.
If you’ve never played Megaways or Reel Adventures before then this game is pretty quick and easy to learn - instead of reel modifiers appearing in the base game, they appear when Mr M lands on a feature which really enriches the gameplay. The layout also makes it a breeze to keep track of the properties and houses you own and the utilities and stations, plus Megaways wins are always easy to spot which adds an extra frisson and excitement.
So what’s the point of free play spins? Don’t be fooled by appearances - this is a high volatility slot and can take about as long as the actual game to figure the all-important free spins feature. Playing risk free spins gives you a true feel for the game without sacrificing any of your precious bankroll.

Start by checking out our casino reviews. In depth and impartial, we get to grips with all the important features of every reputable online casino. We also have a separate bonuses page so you can see at a glance what’s currently on offer, but beware - a huge bonus that’s impossible to convert will only end up void, so always read the terms & conditions to make sure you can meet the wagering requirements and timescale.

Overall Review – Monopoly Megaways Slot
Holy Diver really was a fun online slot, but Monopoly Megaways just takes the Reel Adventure feature to a whole other level. Big Time Gaming has done a fantastic of making sure the Monopoly brand and board game work cohesively with both Megaways and Reel Adventure gameplay. The slot has yet to be released, but when it’s out it may have what it takes to top our Megaways ranking list.
This is hands down the best Monopoly slot we’ve ever played and one that keeps us coming back for more time after time. There’s not a dud thing about this game - every element integrates perfectly into a top rank playing experience both on desktop and mobile.
The sound and visuals are both spot on, capturing the Deco feel of the original game and adding a jazzy soundtrack to follow Mr Monopoly as he scoots along the Reel Adventure strip at the bottom of the reels. What felt maybe a little gimmicky in Holy Diver is brilliantly realised here, with game modifiers and bonus features moved from the base game to the character of Mr M as he moves from property to property.
Jam packed with bonus features and modifiers, this game should be top of every player's to spin list. Yes, the gameplay is complex but once you get into following Mr M’s every move, it all falls into place and there’s an easily accessible inventory so you know how close you are to landing 5 houses and triggering the free spins. We particularly like slots with a collector feature because it gives players hope that the free spins are in sight rather than sitting tight and waiting for scatters to appear.
We wholeheartedly recommend this action packed slot to any player and we can’t wait to see what BTG achieve with Reel Adventures next. We can’t imagine that it could be any more perfectly integrated than in this slot but this is one game studio who never fails to surprise.

more like meh-gaways. this game looks so cool during the base game and it seems like loads of stuff is happening, but you're not actually winning lots. free spins are great, though. like how you can collect property for more spins.
I'm a big fan of Monopoly (the original board game + the slots) and BTG are probably my favourite game producer out there right now so was really looking forward to this game being released... Luckily it's not disappointed (a few Monopoly slots by other games producers have been sub-standand - but it's not the case here), I really like the attempt to stay true to the classic board game, it works well and seems to fit with the Megaways format. Not hit a big win yet, but will continue to play for the next few days and see what happens.
