Monopoly Utility Trails Features

Monopoly Utility Trails comes bundled with a whole host of unique and innovative bonus features, which hardly comes as surprise considering this is a flashy and modern cluster pays slot. Here are all the bonus features in all their glory.

Community Chest feature

At any time a colossal Community Chest symbol can land on the reels. This symbol appears as a 3x3 chest that will open up to reveal a lucrative cash prize that can be anywhere between 5x and 1,000x the player's stake.  

Wild Tracks feature

In the event that four golden train wilds land on the reels forming a square then train carriage wilds will expand to cover all symbols within that square. If any train carraige wilds remain on the grid after a cascade then they'll convert into golden wilds.

Water Works feature

When a waterworks tap wild symbol lands on the reels the waterworks gauge on the right-hand side of the grid fills up incrementally. When the gauge has filled (by way of 15 tap symbols) then the water work bonus feature will begin.

During the waterworks bonus, the game will spin until a winning cluster lands on the grid, all winning clusters are locked in place and will remain locked for the duration of the feature. The game will cascade all non-paying symbols, whilst locking in any symbols that add to the previous cluster.

The taps located above the game grid may activate at any time, pouring water over the symbols, this will activate one of two modifiers. If there are multiple clusters of different symbols and the tap activates then all clusters will be upgraded to match the highest paying symbol. Alternatively, if the clusters are all the same symbol then they'll be upgraded to the next highest symbol in the paytable.

Electric Company feature

When an electric company bulb wild symbol lands on the reels a gauge on the left-hand side of the grid fills up incrementally. When the gauge has filled (by way of 15 bulb symbols) then the electric company bonus feature will begin.

During the feature, all of the symbols on the game grid are replaced by property card (that can be collected for cash values between 0.5x and 25x the player's total bet),  colour tiles (that can be collected to upgrade property tiles) and chance cards that reveal a house or hotel. 

Players begin the feature with 3 lives and will lose a life every time a spin is made where no new property tiles, colour tiles or chance cards land on the grid. Property tiles and chance cards are held.

Any property cards that land are locked to the grid, colour tiles explode, and if there's a property card of the same colour then they'll automatically receive a 2x boost. If players manage to land a house on the grid then it'll double the value of any random property card on the game grid at that time. The hotel is undoubtedly the most important symbol during this bonus feature though, as it doubles the value of all property cards in play.

At the end of the three lives, the value of all of the property cards on the reels are added up and paid out to the player.

Off the Rails Jackpot feature

If players manage to land a golden wild in each four corners of the game grid then they'll automatically trigger the off the Rails Jackpot feature! This will see players automatically cover the entire grid in wilds and see players receive a payout worth 1,000x their initial stake. This jackpot can also be triggered by 10 consecutive cascades in a row. 

Community Chest

At any time a colossal 3x3 Community Chest symbol can land on the reels, this chest will open up to reveal a lucrative cash prize that can be anywhere between 5x and 1,000x the player's stake.  

Wild Tracks

If four golden train wilds land on the reels forming a square then train carriage wilds will expand to cover all symbols within that square. If any train carriage wilds remain after a cascade then they'll convert into golden wilds.

Water Works

If players collect 15 tap symbols they'll trigger the Water Works feature that sees winning clusters stick to the reels ahead of re-spins. This feature can see two lucrative modifiers kick in that upgrades symbols to higher paying ones.

Electric Company

If players collect 15 bulb symbols they'll trigger the electric company feature that sees the game grid completely change, players must land property cards, houses and hotels in order to win as much money before they lose all 3 lives.

Off the Rails Jackpot

If players land golden wilds in all four corners of the game grid they'll trigger the off the Rails Jackpot feature! This will see players automatically cover the entire grid in wilds and see them receive a payout worth 1,000x their initial stake.

Monopoly Utility Trails

Monopoly Utility Trails is an 8-reel, 7-row cluster pays slot developed by SG Digital that's based on the famous board game of the same name. Wins are triggered when players land clusters of matching symbols across the grid, when winning clusters occur, they're removed, allowing new symbols to drop and replace them.

You'd be right to think this slot seems somewhat familiar, as it's been billed by Scientific Games themselves as the spiritual successor to an iconic slot called Chain Reactor Super Trails developed by OpenBet (a studio acquired by SG Digital) back in 2017.

Design

This Monopoly-themed slot is wonderfully designed, however, it's not what you might have expected from a game based on the classic board game. It does share some similarities to other games in the Monopoly slot series, however, this one is notably different! 

The game grid is surrounded by copper pipes, cogs and taps! There are also two large gauges to the left and right of the grid that fills incrementally each time players land a waterworks tap or electric company bulb symbol on the grid... It's especially exciting when the water gauge is filled to the top, as the taps at the top of the screen activate and water is dramatically poured onto the game grid!

Low paying symbols that appear on the grid are traditional gemstones, these are rubies, quartz, emeralds, and sapphires. High paying symbols are exactly what you'd expect, they're all game pieces from the modern board game, these include a Steampunk-inspired top hat, a steamboat, a dog and an old-fashioned luxury car.

There are four different wild symbols, these include a golden train wild, a train carriage wild, a waterworks tap wild and an electric company bulb wild.

Not only does this game look great, but it also boasts quite a catchy soundtrack that sees a big band perform a song that'll have you tapping along for hours after you've played.  

Gameplay

Whilst this is essentially your standard cluster pays slot, a lot of the gameplay revolves around the two gauges to the left and right of the game grid that fills incrementally each time players land a waterworks tap or electric company bulb symbol on the grid. When these gauges are filled to the brim then their respective bonuses will trigger.

This game doesn't feature a standard action bar, instead, the buttons are spread out along the right-hand side of the game. The spin button can be found in the bottom right-hand side of the screen with a stake selection and game setting buttons above it. On the opposite side of the game screen, there's a board that displays all of the winning clusters and their respective values on each individual spin, which is pretty handy when it comes to working out how well you've done!

Win Potential

This medium volatility slot has a slightly above average RTP of 96.61% and can see players win a grand total of 5,000x their initial stake, which is a cool £250,000 if players are playing with the maximum stake.

Our Verdict

There's quite a lot going on in this fast-paced cluster pays slot, and it might take a little bit of getting used to if this kind of game isn't usually your thing, but we have to say, we thoroughly enjoyed playing it and we'd highly recommend you give it a go as well, especially if you're a fan of the board game or other Monopoly-themed slots!
