Description: Williams Monopoly Dotmations Slot Machine, WMS, 1998, graphics by Greg Dunlap. The Monopoly license was acquired by Williams and used for two dotmation slot machines during the 1990s. Monopoly: Advance to Board Walk dotmation slot machine (game #74). Williams Monopoly: Roll and Win dotmation slot machine (game #76).
Monopoly Advance to Boardwalk (game #74) was a 3-reel-spinning slot machine features a full-size Monopoly game board with all of the classic Monopoly elements. Millionaire Rich Uncle Pennybags is back to guide players through familiar Monopoly game play with some new twists and turns on the way to Boardwalk. With three Rich Uncle Pennybags in a scatter pay position, the player starts the bonus round on the famous 'GO' space. The animated Dotmation display gives Rich Uncle Pennybags the opportunity to talk, sing and dance as he guides the player through the bonus game full of multipliers, bonuses, and just like the board game, CHANCE and COMMUNITY CHEST CARDS full of surprises.
Monopoly with Roll & Win (game #76) was a 3-reel-spinning slot machine features mechanical dice and a mini Monopoly game board. With the 'Wild Dice' symbol on the middle reel on a winning combination, the mechanical dice in the top box spin. The sum of the dice acts as a multiplier for game awards. On max bet, 3 Rich Uncle Pennybags on the payline can really make things swing as he takes the player into the top box bonus round for a trip around the Monopoly game board. When the lights stop on a randomly selected Monopoly square, players might draw a Chance Card, win a multiplier or collect bonus credits. Animated Rich Uncle Pennybags helps guide the player through the game.
Both Williams Monopoly dotmation slot machines were lease only games, never for sale to the casinos. This makes the game hard to find today. This means the casinos paid a daily fee to Williams, and when the game was no longer meeting profit expectations, Williams would remove the games. They were then destroyed (crushed). This makes finding a dotmation Monopoly nearly impossible today. Normally casinos buy their equipment, and when done with it, sell it to a slot machine wholeseller. These then trickle down and are sold to home buyers.
Because of the Lease-only option on the Williams Monopoly slot machines, even finding pictures of these games is difficult. If you have a pictures of either Monopoly Advance to Boardwalk or Monopoly Roll and Win (Spin to Win), please email me. I am also looking for the ROM software for these machines. If the ROM software could be found, these games can be resurrected from the dead.
