Epic Monopoly II
Developed by industry veterans WMS, Epic Monopoly II is a sequel to one of the most iconic branded slots of all time, the now-retired Epic Monopoly. This wonderfully lavish 5-reel, 100 payline title utilises the Colossal Reels engine. which sees a huge 5-reel, 12 row set of reels to the right of the main ones.
If the unique setup wasn't quite enough to draw you in, then perhaps the fact this game boasts 4 lucrative bonus features will! Players can benefit from the Epic Wheel Bonus feature, Epic Free Spins, Epic Chance Bonus and the truly exhilarating Around the Board bonus feature!
This slot is exactly what you'd expect from a classic game in the Monopoly slot series, everything about this slot is classy and decadent! The reels and action bar are adorned with gold trim, whilst the symbols are all related to the game of Monopoly and wealth.
Low paying symbols are all your traditional Monopoly game pieces, a boot, a top hat, a boat and a luxury motor car. High paying symbols include a bag stuffed with money, a pile of gold coins, a gentleman in a golden suit and a beautiful woman.
There are two expanding symbols, these feature a dog with a wad of cash in his mouth and the world-renowned Mr Monopoly himself! The scatter symbol is a Monopoly board and the wild is the phrase 'EPIC WILD'.
In terms of music, this game features a charming upbeat tune that fits the aesthetic of the game perfectly!
As mentioned, this game is played across two completely separate reels, a 5 reel, 4-row main reel on the left and a much larger 5-reel, 12-row slot on the right-hand side. Paylines do not extend between reels, instead, separate wins are recorded on both reels. The only symbol that can land on both reels and lead to wins is the scatter symbol.
In terms of navigating and simply playing the slot, it's a little bit frustrating as the stake selection button is hidden behind an extended menu on the left-hand side of the reels. The only visible button on the main game screen is the large spin button. The biggest shock to the system when testing Epic Monopoly II is the lack of an autospin button! It's never an issue we've come across before, but boy did we realise just how much we relied on it until it wasn't there!
This medium volatility gaming-themed slot has a decent RTP of 91.01%, which is right on the cusp of what we'd expect from a good online slot game in this day and age. In terms of winning potential, wins in Epic Monopoly II are limited to £250,000.00, which is pretty impressive.
We genuinely enjoyed playing Epic Monopoly II, it has all the hallmarks of a classic slot that's a little bit out there in terms of overall gameplay. We're all about the additional reels as it opened up the ability to win across many more paylines than you'd find in a standard slot, and that's always good with us! Of course, this slot boasts some pretty fantastic bonus features as well!
