IGT Releases Online 'Monopoly' Game

Leading slot manufacturer International Game Technology announced the official release of “Monopoly: You’re in the Money,” a 30-line online slot game that is the first version of the Monopoly brand to appear online in a gaming environment.

While rival WMS Gaming still holds the license to create casino slot machines carrying the brand of the legendary Monopoly board game, IGT was able to secure exclusive rights to the brand in online and mobile gaming applications.

In the online game, “Mr. Monopoly” hosts two bonus events, including a mystery event and a main bonus that allows the player to win money for moving around the iconic Monopoly board. Landing on a property activates a mini-slot machine with a possibility of winning up to 12,000 times the triggering bet.

“IGT is extremely proud to hold the exclusive online and mobile Monopoly license,” said Alex Kelly, vice president of interactive at IGT. “High-quality branded titles are very important to operators and their players. With such engaging and rewarding bonus experiences, we expect Monopoly: You’re in the Money to quickly become one of the most popular titles within our portfolio.”

IGT’s global Interactive Division was created through the merger of the company’s WagerWorks and Million-2-1 groups.
