Monopoly: Here and Now Slot Review
IGT have proven that they are more than capable of executing a well designed Monopoly slot. They did it with Monopoly You’re in the Money, which was executed with precision. It looked wellthought out and incorporated the Monopoly board game features extremely well.
We do have to say this version surpasses its counterpart in all aspects. The first difference that stood out most to us was the interface. You’re in the Money looked rushed, and very littleattention was paid to providing enticing and captivating visuals, graphics and backdrop.
Monopoly: Here and Now has bumped up all the factors previously mentioned. The backdrop is no longer a simplistic gold colour, instead, there is a beautiful blue night sky filled with stars. Thebuildings look far more defined and extravagant.
There are also fireworks added to the backdrop. The symbols are mostly all 3D and designed with far more definition than its previous counterpart. The Monopoly board is suitably located on thetop right of the screen; showing you all the Board Bonuses. Monopoly: Here and Now is 5 reels played across 20 paylines and it is definitely an upgrade.
