Monopoly Hot Shot Mashup

 Monopoly Hot Shot Mashup

Ever since Scientific Games acquired WMS Gaming in 2013 and Bally Technologies in 2014, it’s been inevitable that we would see WMS-Bally mashups in new slot machines.

Monopoly Hot Shot, on its way for 2018, combines long-standing successes from both companies. With three video reels and nine paylines on Scientific Games’ new TwinStar V75 cabinet, the game is played on an elongated 75-inch curved, ultra-high definition 4K resolution display.

Monopoly games have been a huge success for WMS under its license from Hasbro since the late 1990s. Bally’s Hot Shot play mechanic has resonated with players nearly as long.

In Hot Shot slots, symbols on the video reels include small images of spinning reels of different games. When you get three of those small reel sets, those video reels within the reels spin on their own. That gives you a hot shot at extra wins.

On Monopoly Hot Shot, those games within the game are Action 777, Luxury Diamond Line and Triple Diamond Go. Players always eagerly anticipate the onscreen bonus on Hot Shot games, but on the large TwinStar V75 screen, those extra reels really pop.

As for the Monopoly side of things, a trip around the game board on top is always a highlight. It launches when Scottie dogs land on the reels. Those Scotties have long been part of Monopoly as iconic game pieces to move around the board. Like other icons, they help tie Monopoly slots to the classic board game.

As you roll the dice in a trip around the board, there are extras such as multipliers when you land on a railroad, a credit refund when you land on a utility or tax spaces, a pick’em feature when you land on Chance, Community Chest or Free Parking, even a giant payoff for landing on Go.

On top of all that, Monopoly Hot Shot features a wide-area jackpot that links games at multiple casinos as well as three local progressive levels linking games within the host casino.
