Evolution Gaming Makes Magic With MONOPOLY Live
It may be argued that Monopoly is the most recognised board game in the world today. Hard to believe that it that started out as an antidote to the Great Depression. Its creator, Charles Darrow, was said to have developed the game for the psychological benefits of once again being able to use money to purchase property. It was eventually purchased and published by Parker Brothers, and the rest really is history.
What’s really exciting is the news that live casino specialists Evolution Gaming has latched on to Monopoly in a big way and so much so that they have re-created the famous board game by transforming it into a live casino game. MONOPOLY Live was developed to be part of Evolution’s Dream Catcher money wheel title, and we daresay, this is world’s most popular board game meets world’s most popular live casino concept. It doesn’t get much more exciting than that.
You Saw It First At London ICE
Evolution obtained the rights to develop its own take on the popular board game via a sub-licence co-owned with Scientific Games. The licence is in partnership with the current intellectual property owners of Monopoly, namely Hasbro Inc. MONOPOLY Live was first launched at Totally Gaming London ICE 2019, and is yet another stellar edition to Evolution Gaming’s growing range of releases.
The new title truly has it all; Augmented Reality (AR functionality), 3D bonus rounds, and a chance to win really big with massive multipliers. And to complete the perfect entertainment package, there’s a storyline to it all too: the adventures of MR. MONOPOLY.
Setting New Industry Standards
It would be a push to try to come up with any other developer more able to do MONOPOLY Live justice. Evolution Gaming is the undisputed leader in live casino technology and if anyone is able to really do the board game proud, its Evolution.
According to Evolution Gaming’s Chief Product Officer, Todd Haushalter, MONOPOLY Live is the stuff that redefining an entire industry is made of. Haushalter said that is been a real honour to not only develop the title, but even to just be associated this closely with one of the world’s best loved games of all time.
Haushalter said that the fact that AR technology had never before been implemented in a live casino game of this size and scope, added a whole new dimension of excitement to the development phase. Combined with Dream Catcher, an industry-defining concept in its own right, MONOPOLY Live is set to rock the iGaming industry.
