The hatchet has falled and we have received the unfortunate news that top gaming provider IGT has recently removed its range of Monopoly Slots Series from various online casinos. Likewise at Spin and Win Casino, all Monopoly slots by IGT such as the classic Monopoly Here and Now will no longer be available.
These Monopoly branded slots have been taken down by Las Vegas based game developer IGT, despite them being highly popular among slot players. This is apparently due to WMS Gaming releasing a Monopoly series slots known as Monopoly Big Event along with its partner Barcrest, but confirmation about this is still pending.
It was revealed earlier this year, most precisely in January that WMS Gaming will be taking over the licencing deal from IGT, so that they may develop and release their own Monopoly slots series. Quite a few eyebrows have been raised regarding the removal of these popular games and many online casinos; such as Spin and Win are still impatiently waiting to know if it’s only a temporary removal or a permanent one and also if the licencing deal is the reason for these games to be taken down by IGT.
This sudden removal has left everyone guessing for the real reason behind this move, and IGT has kept the suspense prolonged by not making any comment yet on the situation.
