Monopoly has long been one of the most recognizable games in everyone’s cupboard at home. We have also seen monopoly in casinos, lottery tickets and even at some of our most favorite fast food chains. In this version of monopoly however we are able to play a variation of the game which is all on your iOS or Android device.
The Real Monopoly theme
EA has produced a few monopoly games for the console systems as well as the PC, however this is one of their first takes on bingo with a monopoly theme. The app is beautifully designed and is a cross between the old style monopoly game and a traditional game of bingo.
Players are able to play with others across a mobile network. The game works by putting players into themed rooms which are each themed based off of properties in the traditional Monopoly game. You can enter into a competition with players on every property to the railroads to Baltic Avenue and Boardwalk. Players start with access to just a few rooms and properties and by playing bingo they are able to unlock the rest of the properties and earn special bonuses along the way.
The exciting part about Monopoly Bingo is that there are thousands of players online who are all trying to compete for the same thing, leveling up and unlocking more properties by playing bingo.
What makes advancement tricky, is that players can only score a certain number of bingos before a round ends. Players will have access to up to 4 bingo cards at a time but a room may only be set to 100 bingos in a round, meaning that a player may go a few rounds only able to take one bingo or perhaps not even any bingos in a round depending on the numbers that are called.
Getting a Bingo helps players to rank up and earn extra experience which can help them to unlock powerups, properties, free spaces, extra coins and more.
The powerups are extremely useful for earning more bingos, more quickly, but they are entirely dictated by lightning bolt power. Lightning bolts restrict the use of powerups to just a few times a day, they do recharge but this will take time. This is why the app also has the ability to buy the lightning bolts for real money, which will allow players to use virtually unlimited powerups in a day.

Overall Monopoly Bingo is a pretty good game, that goes at a very quick pace especially when you are marking off the cards yourself.
