Electronic Arts and Hasbro have announced the development of two new Monopoly mobile games, Monopoly Bingo and Monopoly Slots. The two games are coming to iOS, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with Monopoly Bingo already being available on those platforms.
Monopoly Bingo combines the property collection of the original board game with bingo rooms. Each property contains its own bingo room, and players can choose to play on one or more cards (up to 16), depending on the number of tickets they have to spend, and their in-game level.
Players earn experience points for each number they daub, and will unlock more available bingo cards and additional properties and bingo halls as they level up. A power-ups system rewards players as they complete each game of bingo, giving them bonus coins, automatically daubing non-called numbers, and more.
Outside of bingo, Monopoly Bingo also offers a scratch card system where players can earn free tickets and other prizes. However, these cards also contain “Go to Jail” symbols, which require players to pay coins to clear, or simply throw away the card to try again on another.
“We’ve taken two of the most-time tested game mechanics—bingo and slots—and paired them with Monopoly, the world’s favorite game brand, to create two unique mobile experiences that will give fans a simple and easy way to collect their favorite properties, tokens and other aspects of the Monopoly world they’ve come to love over the years,” said Chip Lange, Senior Vice President and General Manager at EA, via a company release.
“Gamers will feel right at home with these Monopoly titles. Big risk and huge rewards await them as they build property empires, collect tokens, and spin and bingo their way through the Monopoly world we all know and love.”
Monopoly Bingo is now available to download for free on iOS and Android. Monopoly Slots is currently live in select territories, with a widespread launch coming soon. Check back soon to follow these games on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
