A game like this has never been created before and it leverages some of the most advanced technology available including the use of augmented reality. Our emphasis was on creating an immensely fun game for players and we are confident that it offers players a truly unique gaming experience with the combination of the main money wheel game, the live host and exciting Bonus rounds with Mr. Monopoly in his 3-D Monopoly world, complete with all the familiar Monopoly game elements.”
