A set of two dice helps you play the board game Monopoly. The image of a pair of dice is the Wild for this game. It features only on the second and fifth reels. You win when you form winning combinations of similar symbols from left to right. The Wild can be used to substitute any other symbol if that means forming a winning combination. The only symbol it can’t thus replace is the other special symbol called the Scatter.
A red-colored hotel is the image that is the Scatter for Monopoly Heights. Apart from its own returns for correct combinations, there is another importance of the Scatter. It triggers the Jackpot rounds we mentioned earlier, which brings us to the bonus rounds you get in Monopoly Heights.
