I do have to question the wheel though.....

I am almost convinced that the material on the side of the "pegs" (sorry not sure what they are called) leading in to the segments with a 1 are made from a material that is much smoother, causing less friction and allowing the "pointer" move in to segment with less force; conversely, I think material on the side of the "pegs" leading out of the segments with a 1 are made from a material that is much rougher, causing more friction and making it more difficult for the "pointer" to over come.

Real tin foil hat stuff i know! :confused:


The problem with this theory is that the peg would also help it to stay in a good segment if it was the last peg. In other words it would help in 50% of cases and hinder in 50% so no gain. And they spin it in both directions from what i nave seen.

Read enough to say I will 99% never play this.

From what I've learnt, big hits which are common on DoA, IR, Bonanza, Novomatics etc etc would require the wheel to land as follows.

Chance, Chance, 4 Rolls, odds of this happening must be hundreds of thousands to one!

Hard enough to win on slots these days but think I will stick to them :p

Well, i already had a couple of decent ones and one pretty big one, which have me definitely up on the game. I had a chance, chance, chance chance, and the last one was cash prize, which was multiplied with the cumulative multiplier of the previous ones. Paid like 220 on 20 ct. Don't remember the multipliers but it does happen. I also had several double chances then a number i didn't bet on :D

But Even a 2 or 4 rolls without chance multiplier can pay fairly big: the biggest regular win on a clean board (before the houses and hotels are added) is the Mayfair for 100x. With a hotel or more, i've seen it @ 500x from the start. If you manage a double streak, and are lucky to go around the board, all prizes are doubled. So that's potentially already a 1000x on the board. Add to that just one chance multiplier, and you can see you don't need that many. Note: it could be possible Mayfair can start out even higher than 500x - that's just one i've seen for myself.

Eh? why have you quoted my response ? its like implying i was wrong, when i was quoting someone else and explaining that 7 IS the most common score with two dice which you have also confirmed. You might not have meant that but its how it felt when i read your reply.
I was agreeing with you :)

There was a round that paid around 2200x which was Chance into 4 Rolls with 10x multiplier. Most of the time Chance is not 10x though but I've had 5x into 5x for a 25x multiplier which sadly didn't land into rolls. Clearly there is potential for even bigger wins but obviously it's going to be ridiculously rare. I don't mind it though since your balance usually lasts a good while when betting on 2 and the rolls. Much more so than in games like jamming jars.

Nothing to do with the fact that 7 is the most likely score with two dice then? ;)

I understand that & again yet another comes in wading through implying something else.

How about you play the game a much as i have & tell me that there is no possible way that those dice are not controlled, if those dice including multiplyer were not controlled in what numbers are picked many small casinos wouldn't be here today.

I also would call those dice rigged as fk ,!!

So is there any best strategy for this game then? I thought they had to tell you what best strategy game was for random games where there's a choice of how to play? Or is that just for slots?

I assume you can choose your variance profile based on the rolls thingies and whatnot?

Also, is there any stated RTP for it?

It certainly looks like something a bit different and the slow pace of play would make a pleasant change from turbo-spinning your bollocks into a sandgrinder, which is what a lot of slots are akin to these days.

Possible that is the case under UKGC rules - i haven't heard it before, and only ever noticed a 'optimal play' strategy on a handful of slots, like Legend of the Pharoahs..

Best strategy is open for debate - depends on what your style is and what numbers you pick, or if you just go for the rolls..
Variance also changes with betting style.. If you only bet on the rolls, and do that every round, your Variance will certainly be higher than if you would go for the numbers mainly..

I'm sure you can figure it out better than me! You seem to have a knack for in-depth analysis :)

I'd appreciate it mightily if you checked it out and did a 'lil review on it!

Yes it does. I can tell you that my 20 lasted like 2hrs without dropping more than 10. Actually I recovered and up to 22 (min bets 0.10).
So if you can control yourself and you like it, it is definitely a good change between super spinning DOAII ;)

I really recommend only playing the number 2 and the rolls. As you can see from the table above 1 and 5 are much worse RTP and I feel the 10 is too volatile. I tried betting 2, 10 and rolls but found it more enjoyable to put more money on 2 instead. In a longer session you're just not very likely to land the 10 more often than 1/10 rounds constantly. Personally I like to to put twice as much on 2 as on the rolls so that I'm making 1,5x my total bet when hitting 2, but you could adjust this to your liking. Obviously with this strategy your only big wins are going to come from rolls and the very rare high multiplier into 2 but to me it's a fun playstyle.

Regarding the dice rolls I've seen game chat ask the host to display specific hand signs behind the dice when they are rolling so there is practically no way that they are pre-recorded and I don't see them being rigged in any other way either. I guess the only way would be loaded dice that are more likely to land on different numbers to have less doubles occur, but it doesn't seem realistic to me that they'd need to do that. Most of the time in the bonus there are only 1 or 2 numbers that lead to a decent win with the rest being anything from nothing special to really bad. 2 rolls seems to pay around 8-13x almost every time and 4 rolls is often under 40x as well, which is what you would get every time in dream catcher for landing the segment with the same chance. Of course there is the potential for bigger wins which why I feel this game is much more exciting to play.

Watched a bit of 'stop and steps' monopoly live video this morning, had to turn it off after 5 mins :eek2: it was destroying my few remaining brain cells at a rate of knots. The only thing I did enjoy, for about 3 seconds, was watching the top hat man sat in a chair drinking a cup of tea. [ Rich Uncle Pennybags is apparently the name he goes by? though tight arsed B may be more appropriate :laugh:]

No offence intended to those who like it but I think the first best strategy is to keep your money in your pocket and avoid this reverse roulette style 'game' like the plague, the second is if your suffering from insomnia find a youtube video of someone else playing it :p

Thanks for the replies, very helpful :)

So to get optimum RTP and have access to the board, betting on 2, 10, and the rolls is the way to go, but I take your point above eizei that dropping the 10 may work better in some regards.

I might have a crack at this and do a video for it, I know a lot of people didn't care for the games at Tombola, but there's a lot to be said for playing at a slower pace and making your money last a bit longer. Compare and contrast with something as outright psycho as a high variance beast like Jammin' Jars on turbo play.

One last question (I don't have access to the game at the moment), what do the CHANCE segments do, apply a multiplier or multipliers to the next spin of the wheel?

Looking forward to that!

The Chance can award multipliers (in the case of more consecutive chances cumulative like raging rhino) or a cash prize. If you get one or more chance multipliers it will multiply everything you bet on, and if you manage to get the rolls then, all the fields on the board will first be upgraded as they normally would, then multiplied by the (cumulative) multiplier of the chance card(s)...if the chance card awards cash, after one or more preceding chance multipliers, that cash prize (usually about 3 to 10 times bet) will also be multiplied.

I had another go at this last night and didn't do nearly so well. The ROLLS just weren't really coming up enough, and when they did it was just the 2x rounds that were paying crap, didn't see the 4x at all.

We did get a 10x multiplier off the chance but it then landed on a '1' segment, which I don't cover anyway.

In the end I lost £64 placing £2 bets (£1 on '2', 50p on 2x Rolls, and 50p on 4x Rolls), although I got a fair wedge of playtime, it was getting rather dull towards the end.

Annoyingly, the '10' was coming up quite a lot, which I don't cover now!

There is a confirmed hit of 2220x stake, the host was saying, and chat corroborated this.

Not a bad game though, if one was playing with 10p chips, maybe with total bets of 40p per round, you could play the bugger for ages with not much cash.

I have to say this game is utterly tedious. It's the equivalent of watching Rochdale vs Darlington on a cold wet Monday night in January while playing St*rb*rst on your phone with a dodgy 4g connection.

Yesterday was a massive day on Monopoly live, I hope at least some of you got to enjoy it. In the afternoon there was a 64x multiplier that landed into a 2 for 128:1 and later at night Andy spun 500x and 250x bonuses back to back which I sadly missed myself but then on his next shift some 1,5hrs later he landed another 4 rolls with the 500x Mayfair. Of course these wins are going to be rare but if you happened to play last night you had a chance for some really big bucks. Personally I play with very small bets for about 3€ total bet for each spin and still landed some pretty sizeable wins. For me this is by far the most fun live casino game there is.
