From The Manufacturer

Introducing a modern banking version of the Monopoly game: the Ultimate Banking Edition. In this edition, Monopoly money is no more! The Monopoly Ultimate Banking game features an all-in-one Ultimate Banking unit with touch technology that makes the game fast and fun. Now players can instantly buy properties, set rent, and tap their way to fortune. Each player gets a bankcard and the Ultimate Banking unit keeps track of everyone’s fortunes. It also scans the game’s property cards and can boost or crash the market. Traditional Monopoly play gets amped up with this edition — the game introduces Event cards and Location spaces instead of Chance cards and Community Chest cards. Land on an Event Space, and rents may be raised or lowered, a player may earn or lose money, or someone could get sent to Jail. Location Spaces allow players to pay and move to any property space on the gameboard. Challenge friends and family to win it all with the Monopoly Ultimate Banking game! The Hasbro Gaming and Monopoly names and logos, the distinctive design of the gameboard, the four corner squares, the Mr. Monopoly name and character, as well as each of the distinctive elements of the board and playing pieces are trademarks of Hasbro for its property trading game and game equipment.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Its good quality, the houses are well molded, the board and the playing cards are bright with sharp illustrations. I like how the rents are laid out the property cards. It opened a traditional game up to a wider age range as you no longer need to search through banknotes.
If you’re looking for a new game for the winter, but don’t want to spend hours and hours playing one game, I highly recommend Monopoly Ultimate Banking. Don’t be fooled by its familiar looks – it is a completely different, fast paced and highly entertaining animal!
Thanks to the digitalisation of rent and purchase fees, the game is able to be a little more flexible.
A unique twist on the original game that incorporates modern technology into the money exchanges.

What reviewers didn't like

On the downside, there is no space for bending the rules.
The only negative I can think of is the lack of AAA batteries for the card reader included in the box.
Some say it's not as fun as the original. Tokens are plastic. Only accomodates 4 players. Banking unit requires batteries.
