Who has never played Monopoly before? One of the most classic board games, with its streets, houses and hotels where we can develop our real estate empire, has its own slot machine, and now we also have an online casino called Monopoly, inspired precisely by the iconic board game. Here the goal is not to build hotels and fleece our friends and family, but to beat the banks.

Behind Monopoly Casino is Juegos Philippines PLC., a company based in Malta like many other companies dedicated to the online gaming sector, although with fiscal residence in Ceuta. In fact, and how could it be otherwise, it has the corresponding licenses from the AGCO to operate in our country. It is one of the few online casinos that is dedicated exclusively to casino, since it does not offer sports bets or poker.
Our experience at Monopoly Casino
The idea is to move the Monopoly board game to an online casino, and it seems to be working. We have a visually appealing website that is easy to use, where Mr. Monopoly could not be missing, and details such as the corners or the game's bill-shaped tokens transport Philippines directly to the Monopoly board game. The packaging, with the Evolution Gaming seal, is very good, although there are areas for improvement once inside.
The original games catalog included slots, roulette, and live roulette - without its own section -, to which blackjack tables have been added. However, there are games such as more/less or keno, and it even offers Philippines free games every day where we can win interesting prizes. It's the "Free Parking of the Day", does it ring a bell? There is no VIP club of any kind, nor the possibility of playing in demo mode or from the Monopoly Casino app, an application that is available in other countries.
One of the most striking aspects is the scarcity of payment methods. Digital wallets such as PayPal, Neteller or Skrill are not enabled when depositing or withdrawing funds, which can be a problem for certain users. On the other side of the coin, we have good customer service that includes toll-free phone or live chat support, in addition to the typical FAQs that are always helpful for the user.
We could say that the Monopoly Casino game catalog is somewhat peculiar, as it combines the usual slot, blackjack, or roulette offerings with games that we do not usually find in other casinos, including free games. Slot machines are grouped together in the slots section, while the rest of the games are available in the online casino, including live roulette tables, which do not have their own section. No game is available in demo mode.
The slot catalog features around 200 titles, among which, as it could not be otherwise, highlighted, are those from the Monopoly saga. We have everything, from progressive slots to jackpot slots, classic slots with different pay lines, etc., and of the most varied themes. Immortal Romance, Chiquito, Pirate's Treasure, Starburst or Jack Hammer are just some examples of what awaits Philippines in this section.
At Monopoly Casino we have a dozen roulettes, including live roulettes. All of them are European roulettes, with no possibility of playing French or American versions of the game; although we have a variety of roulettes ranging from the classic ones to lightning roulettes, 10C roulette for players with a more modest bank, or High Stakes Roulette for those with a bigger bank.
✅ Live Casino
Within the "Online Casino" section we have two more roulette games that we haven't mentioned yet. The first is Lightning Roulette, a live lightning roulette with multipliers that will help Philippines increase our winnings. The other is a conventional Live Roulette, where the dealer figure couldn't be missing.
In the online Casino section, there are also several blackjack tables available, such as the classic, multi-hand or virtual first-person. This offering is similar to what other online casinos using Evolution Gaming software offer, which is enough to enjoy the game.
✅ Other games
We continue in the "Online Casino" section, where several games break with the usual schemes of online casinos. For example, Sink the Fleet Keno, a version of keno inspired by another classic board game, Sink the Fleet, but with a mechanics equal to keno. Another game is Higher/Lower, which also needs no explanation: you have to find out if the next card will have a higher or lower value than the one on the table. We also have some video poker or scratch and win games.
✅ Free games
One of the features of Monopoly Casino is the free games, an alternative offered by only a few online casinos or gaming rooms. Every month, they offer Philippines a couple of free games - usually slots - that we can play for free and win up to $750 in cash or free spins for other games. Every week, we have to play the same game, and to activate this option, it is essential to have deposited at least $10 on the website.
Monopoly Casino is not known for offering a large number of payment methods, as, as we pointed out at the beginning, all digital methods are practically excluded. Thus, you can deposit using your VISA or MasterCard bank card or a PaySafeCard pin. In both cases, the minimum deposit is the $10 needed to activate the free games, and the maximum is $10,000 if you use your card or $1,000 through PaySafeCard.
When requesting a withdrawal, we have the same methods available, in addition to bank transfer. If you withdraw via bank transfer or debit card, the payment take up to 8 business days -depending on the bank-; and we can withdraw between $10 and $5,000 (card) or between $20 and $10,000 (bank transfer). Withdrawals via PaySafeCard are processed within a maximum of 24 hours, and range between the minimum withdrawal of $20.00 and the maximum of $2,000.
Despite not being as well-known as other operators who constantly advertise or have physical locations, Monopoly Casino is a completely reliable operator. There is no need to fear for the security of our funds, banking data, or personal information because Monopoly Casino has the necessary measures to ensure user safety. If not, it would not have the licenses from the AGCO. These same licenses guarantee Philippines fair play, where it's you against chance.
At the end of the Monopoly Casino website, we can see the logos for Playing Responsibly, Safe Gaming Practices, Self-Exclusion, and +18, which are common among online gambling operators in Philippines. However, in this case, we have three additional logos: Safe & Secure, Gamesys Affiliates, and Anonymous Players. Users can set their own gambling limits at this operator, which has its own security measures in place to prevent any issues for their players.
Monopoly Casino Mobile App
At the moment, Monopoly Casino does not have a mobile application for devices in Philippines. It is worth noting this, because in platforms like the App Store, we do find an app for the United Kingdom. Until the launch of the application for Philippines, we can play Monopoly Casino from the browser on our mobile or tablet without any problem, since their website is perfectly adapted to these devices, and the experience is similar to playing from a computer.
If we click on the help button, we will be redirected to the Monopoly Casino help center, where the support chat stands out appearing on the bottom right corner of the screen. We must enter the concept about which we have our question and a series of questions will appear. If you are not satisfied, you can open a form to send your query. You can contact customer service at the toll-free phone number 900 94 32 00 or send an email to [email protected].
At this help center, we also have the usual collection of doubts and questions about aspects such as user account and data, deposits and withdrawals, responsible gaming, etc. Just enter each one to see the queries and check if the answer to our question is there. There are no profiles on social networks for the Philippines public, and although there are some accounts for the United Kingdom, they are not too active.
Monopoly Casino: Opinions and conclusion
The idea of Monopoly Casino is truly original, and they have managed to bring the excitement of Monopoly to an online casino, which is quite difficult. Nonetheless, we are dealing with a casino of contrasts. The games are good, with some very original options that attempt to differentiate from other online casinos, such as keno, scratch cards, or higher/lower. The more classic players will find around 200 slot titles that form an acceptable slots offer, with good games, as well as roulette games for all budgets, including live versions, or blackjack.
There aren't many promotions offered, aside from the weekly free games where we can win up to 750$. There is no VIP club, and there is also no mobile application available, although we can still play without any issues on mobile or tablet thanks to their responsive website design.
Another contrast is the limited variety of payment methods, which are only limited to cards, transfers -only for withdrawals- and PaySafeCard, without being able to use digital methods; with a good customer service that has a toll-free phone and live chat support. It should not be forgotten that this is a fairly young casino, with a lot of room for improvement to incorporate games and all kinds of novelties.
