The Hasbro board game Monopoly has grown since its introduction in 1935 to become one of the most immediately recognisable brands in the world. It's perhaps unsurprising, then, that there is now such a thing as an official Monopoly online casino, especially given that Monopoly-branded casino games have become familiar to gamblers on other sites.
Monopoly Casino isn't just about Monopoly, though; it isn't even merely about casino games. That's because this site operated by Gamesys is also a comprehensive online gaming portal.
Adding to what we said above, Monopoly Casino showcases the likes of casino games, jackpots, slots, poker and - as you might expect, given that we're reviewing it - some of the best online bingo. This means that the promotions tend to be spread across these various specialities, instead of focusing on just one or two of the site's many gaming categories.
We therefore don't really recommend Monopoly Casino to those looking for a large number of bingo-centric promotions, although the range of promos is just fine for general gamers.
As this is a review principally concentrating on Monopoly Casino's merits as a place for playing online bingo, we might as well focus on those games first.
At the time of our visit for this review, there were no fewer than four bingo rooms: Superlinks, The Crystal Maze Bingo, Blox Bingo and Session Bingo. It's a combination of games that helps to ensure whether your taste leans towards 75-ball, 80-ball or 90-ball bingo, there will always be something on offer here to stimulate and reward you.
It's worth noting at this point that in common with the situation at other Gamesys casino sites such as Virgin Games, the bingo games at Monopoly Casino are very colourful and graphically sophisticated. This, together with their slick navigation and action, greatly makes these rooms feel like prestigious and exciting places to play bingo.
Further convenience is assured by the fact that you can enjoy these games directly through your web browser on an 'instant play' basis, without having to download anything.
The all-round gaming experience at Monopoly Casino is enhanced further, of course, by the various other non-bingo games that you can enjoy as a member here. Below are just some of the games here that show this isn't just a site at which to experience the top bingo online:
Double Bubble Jackpot
Monopoly Paradise Mansion
Monopoly City Spins
Wild Seat Poker
You can play bingo online at Monopoly Casino on your smartphone, by either navigating to the site directly through your device's web browser or downloading the dedicated app. When you do, you'll be able to access gorgeously mobile-optimised versions of the four aforementioned bingo games, complete with the graphical refinement and intuitive gaming experience that you might already be accustomed to from the desktop variants.
The general interface used on the mobile-ready Monopoly Casino is, like its desktop counterpart, clean and classy, so you'll never feel too dazzled or distracted while trying to choose between the games on offer.
As is generally the case with Gamesys casinos, Monopoly Casino is a quick and easy site to register an account with. All that you need to do is go through several pages providing details such as your first and last name, email address, date of birth, postal address and the username and password that you would like to use.
Please note that you won't be permitted to start playing online bingo and winning money until you have first verified your age and identity.
The range of payment methods from which you can pick as a member of Monopoly Casino is typical of what the leading casino and bingo portals accept, and includes the likes of Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Maestro, PayPal and Paysafecard. The latter two can't be used for first deposits, though - only for second and subsequent deposits.
An obvious initial place to look for help as a bingo player at Monopoly Casino is the site's all-encompassing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section; you can reach it by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking 'Help and FAQ'.
Doing this will take you to a series of help categories, dedicated to such aspects of the site as the promotions and bonuses, technical issues, deposits, withdrawals and the games themselves.
If you can't find an answer to your query here, just click on the 'Contact' link, and you'll be given a choice of 'live chat', phone or email contact. As well as 24/7 chat opening hours, it'll cost you nothing to phone a member of the team.
Monopoly Casino definitely isn't a site of sole relevance to Monopoly enthusiasts. It's not even only a fine place to play some of the top bingo online, given the many other types of games available, although there are naturally a few more Monopoly and Hasbro-themed titles here than you might reasonably expect other sites to give you. All in all, it's an excellent all-round gaming portal.
