Monopoly Live Wins Game of the Year Award at EGR

Evolution Gaming has another yet award in its awards portfolio. Each year, we hear the news that the developer has received another award, either for a game or a solution it has come up with. The list of awards, as you can see, never stops coming, and this time, Monopoly Live was the game that brought the new award to the multi-award-winning developer.


Monopoly Live beat 13 other shortlisted games by successful companies and won the prestigious award. The actual award recognizes the operator or game studio that has produced the stand-alone game that has made the most massive impact over a twelve months period.

The ceremony was held at Grosvenor House Hotel in London, and Evolution Gaming received it there. After the EGR Operator Awards 2019 ceremony, Todd Haushalter, the Chief Product Officer at Evolution Gaming said that they were all honoured to have won the award for Monopoly Live, adding that it has been a true pleasure to work with one of the universe’s top-loved brands to create such a unique game, now named as the Game of the Year.

The Game of the Year winner was voted by the actual shortlisted operators for one of the Operator Awards. Deloitte officiated the voting process. So, Haushalter added that winning back-to-back Game of the Year EGR Award was something they have never dreamed of since they created games they though players would love and that they would want to play themselves. That was always their focus. But, to be once again honoured by peers in the gambling industry with the award was so very special and something that would motivate Evolution Gaming for 2020 and beyond. He thanked everyone at Evolution that made the award a reality.

Monopoly Live is a unique game by Evolution, released as a special edition to Dream Catcher via a sublicense by Scientific Games, which in return has a license agreement with Hasbro. Inc for rights to the Monopoly brand. It is available exclusively from Evolution, even though the Monopoly logo and name, the distinctive design of the game board the Mr.Monopoly name, the four corner squares and the Mr.Monopoly character, as well as all of the distinctive elements of the board and the playing pieces, are trademarks of Hasbro, Inc.

About Monopoly Live

So what makes Monopoly Live so special?

Being a Live Casino game show-type of a game based on the world's most popular board game, winning the award was its destiny.

Monopoly Live comes with augmented reality, big multiplier wins and 3D Bonus rounds based on Mr.Monopoly’s adventures. When it was first introduced in April 2019, Haushalter announced it as a real breakthrough which would redefine Live Casino entertainment. Of course, it eventually did. The world's most popular board game met Live Casino gaming, and that left no one indifferent.

As a player playing Monopoly Live, your job is to guess where the super-sized wheel spun by a live host will stop. That means that you need to place a bet on the number you believe the wheel will stop. Your options are “4 Rolls”, “2 Rolls”, 10, 5, 2, and 1. Should your guess be right, you will receive a corresponding payout. Of course, in the board-game style, in addition to the six sections, you will also find “Chance” segments, and this is where Mr.Monopoly kicks in, waiting impatiently to get into action. If the wheel stops at the “Chance” segment, Mr.Monopoly gives you the Chance card which will either reveal a random cash prize or a Multiplier Bonus. With your bet in place, the host spins the wheel, and if you've got a Multiplier Bonus, that win will be multiplied.

Should you get the “4 Rolls” or “2 Rolls” segments as the wheel stops, you activate the augmented reality and you are taken to a 3D Monopoly world, joined by Mr.Monopoly. This is where you will see the familiar Monopoly action, with Super Tax, houses, hotels, Jail, Chance, Community Chest, and the GO options for real. Your walk is, of course, determined by two dice, but you can rest assured that you’ll get huge prizes and Multipliers!
