Monopoly Big Baller is a hugely popular live presenter game by Evolution that combines bingo and Monopoly, combining two Evolution games, Mega Ball and Monopoly Dream Catcher.
There are no stats in the game itself, so you can’t see when the bonus round was last triggered or the previous multiplier. The only thing you will see in the game is information about the largest multiplier of the day.
This means you’d need a stats tracker for Monopoly Big Baller to see the results history over time.
In this article, I’ll explain how frequently elements of the game hit, with the outcome for the player. This is the same information you get from a Monopoly Big Baller results tracker if you had one, but instead, you’re collecting the data manually.
You can read more about the game in my Monopoly Big Baller review.
This page focuses on statistics and odds.
Monopoly Big Baller has 60 bingo numbers, with 20 numbers selected in each game round.
You can bet on one to four 5×5 bingo cards containing 25 numbers and two cards that trigger the 3D Monopoly bonus round with three and four numbers on them, respectively.
All cards can get free spaces and win multipliers.
The developer stated that the RTP for the game is 96.10%. The 3 ROLLS bet has an RTP of 95.80%, and the 5 ROLLS bet has an RTP of 95.20%.
I believe there are better and worse bets to make in this game, which is the reasoning behind this article and my Monopoly Big Baller strategy.
Unlike other games where players use historical result trackers to help know where to place their bets, in Monopoly Big Baller, you don’t get to make choices on the numbers you’re betting on.
You can only bet on up to four bingo cards that contain numbers randomly generated by the game.
The betting time is 12 seconds. There are 25 numbers on each card, so there’s not enough time to determine if the numbers are the best for you. If it were possible, it would be a futile gesture to change the numbers.
You can also bet on a 3 ROLLS card with three numbers and a 5 ROLLS card with four numbers. You can bet on one of these cards, both or none.
This is where things get interesting. Does it make more sense to bet on a 3 ROLLS card that lands more frequently, or does the 5 ROLLS card justify the longer wait?
Let’s see what parts of Monopoly Big Baller you should be interested in and where historical stats can help you make the correct decision.
Like I said, the bingo card numbers are not something you should try to keep track of.
They’re random. There are 60 numbers in the game, with 20 picked each game. There is no such thing as ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ numbers, as the results are random.
Besides, all the players of Monopoly Big Baller are playing the same cards. You don’t have much choice. You could try to pick the ‘right’ card, but you’d be wasting time if you did that. Pick any card. The odds of winning are the same.
Your choice here will be how many cards you play and which card type you want to play.
Before proceeding, let’s discuss the odds of landing a line win in bingo.
You probably think the chances are much greater than they are by an order of magnitude.
When you play a 5×5 card with 12 different five-number line wins possible, you are essentially getting 12 lottery tickets that win only if their exact combination comes up.
For each combination, in a game that draws 20 balls out of 60, the chance of hitting is around 0.40%.
For those 12 combinations, the chance is 12 x 0.40 = 4.80% to land at least one.
Odds get better with those free spaces you get on each ticket, and multipliers increase the wins. The standard line win is 3x.
If you’re playing all four cards, you can expect to get a line win once every four game rounds – and will need a 16x win to break even.
As we will find out when we calculate other odds in Monopoly Big Baller, the chance of triggering the bonus round with either of two cards is roughly the same as getting a line win on a single bingo card.
The maximum number of cards you can play is 4, and they can be any mix of Free Space and Chance cards you want:
You can play 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 cards in each game round.
I like to go for a 3-1 combination with only one Chance card if I want to play it, as I believe Free Space cards represent better value.
Free Space cards can also get randomly assigned multipliers, and the chance to win is inherently more significant, whereas, with Chance cards, you get a win multiplier, but it can be as low as 2x.
Whether you play one card for four rounds or four cards in one game, it doesn’t matter. The only restriction is the amount of bankroll you have.
There are two types of cards in Monopoly Big Baller.
One is a Free Space card with a guaranteed hit in the middle, which can help you form line wins, but just by a bit, as Mr. Monopoly will sprinkle more free spaces across all cards anyway.
The Chance card has a guaranteed multiplier in the middle, so you will almost certainly win more when you win.
The maximum line payout for a Free Space card is 40:1, and the maximum line payout for a Chance card is 200:1.
While the Chance cards are much more volatile regarding wins, this is where the big wins are more likely to happen.
The Free Space cards may sound tempting as you get an increased chance to win, but in Monopoly Big Baller, the opportunity to win anything on any card is relatively small. The one free space doesn’t matter as much as we’d want it to.
I’d instead take my chances with the Chance card and would instead push my luck when it comes to large multipliers – as multipliers on the same card multiply themselves.
Mr. Monopoly sprinkles all cards with random win multipliers and free spaces in each game round. So you benefit from this for free.
You’ll get more free spaces on a Free Space card and more multipliers on a Chance card.
The 3 ROLLS and 5 ROLLS cards can also get free spaces and multipliers, which means winning might become easier on those cards than you initially thought.
That’s another argument for playing these cards. You might get a free space on the 5 ROLLS card and will only need to land three numbers – same as on the 3 ROLLS card.
In my experience, these both hit more frequently than you might expect. Or, at least, they hit more regularly than you might expect compared to the line wins on the bingo cards.
The reason is it’s just a few numbers that you have to hit. Also, you can get free spaces on the cards, increasing the chances of triggering the bonus round.
You will see all numbers on your 5 ROLLS card matched 1.23% of the time, not considering the potential free spaces.
That means if you bet on 5 ROLLS constantly, you’d win roughly once every 80 game rounds on average.
For 3 ROLLS, the mathematical chance is 3.70%, excluding help that comes from free spaces.
If you bet on both cards, the probability of triggering the bonus round is increased to nearly 5% or once every 20 game rounds.
I’d say the bonus round in Monopoly Big Baller, although it looks the same as the one in Monopoly Dream Catcher, doesn’t pay as well as in that game.
You can still get some large multipliers, but Monopoly Big Baller is more of a lower variance experience where the bonus round will get triggered more frequently but will pay more modest prizes.
Bingo card wins are too random to make sense of, and no historical results tracker can help you decide here.
We could calculate something if there were no random win multipliers, but with them being so randomly placed on the bingo cards, it’s impossible.
The critical statistical data points we need are how often the bonus round gets triggered and how much it pays.
This is roughly what you can expect over one month or roughly 34,000 game rounds.
|# of wins||Outcome||Observed hit Frequency||Calculated Chance||Interval|
|3 wins||Multiplier 500x and above||0.01%||1 in 11,000|
|4 wins||Multiplier 300x to 499x||0.012%||1 in 8,500|
|18 wins||Multiplier 200x to 299x||0.05%||1 in 1,190|
|80 wins||Multiplier 100x to 150x||0.23%||1 in 425|
|105 wins||Multiplier 100x +||0.31%||1 in 320|
|450 wins||5 Rolls||1.32%||1.23%||1 in 75-81|
|1050 wins||3 Rolls||3.10%||3.70%||1 in 27-32|
|1500 wins||% Rolls + 3 Rolls||4.40%||4.93%||1 in 20-23|
Looking at the largest wins in a month, it’s somewhat surprising that 40% or more are won during a 3 ROLLS bonus round, indicating that 3 ROLLS wins can get really high. It’s just they stay in the 10-25x range most of the time.
In July 2023, our testing period, two of the largest wins and four out of the top ten were produced by 3 ROLLS.
5 ROLLS, on the other hand, usually produces large multipliers such as 100x or above and is doing that at a steady rate. It can stall and have a small multiplier, such as 20x.
The problem with 5 ROLLS is that it’s a rare event that can vary wildly. You can see it land a few times in your short playing session, or you can wait for dozens or even a few hundred game rounds.
3 ROLLS is expected to land three times more frequently than 5 ROLLS. In either case, you can get lucky with a free space – but we don’t know the exact chance to land free spaces on either card.
Considering this data, 3 ROLLS probably looks like a more reasonable bet of the two. You often win, with a chance to get very lucky during the bonus round.
If you bet on 5 ROLLS and win, you will likely win 100x or more, with an occasional fail. But it’s a rare event overall.
I’ll let you decide which bet is better and if you should play both simultaneously.
Monopoly Big Baller isn’t a game you’ll play in short sessions if you attempt to win big.
It is a game that will pay big several times every month – if you think a 500x win is big, you need to be there with an active bet when it happens.
I’d say Monopoly Big Baller is a low- to medium-variance game with several traps that you’ll be able to avoid after reading this article.
Every month, there are several 500x wins produced by either the 5 ROLLS or the 3 ROLLS card.
If you’re playing four tickets, you can expect to get a line win once every four game rounds. The bonus round will hit roughly once every 20-25 game rounds.
Monopoly Big Baller has an RTP of 96.10%. The 3 ROLLS bet has an RTP of 95.80%, and the 5 ROLLS bet has an RTP of 95.20%, lower than the game, indicating the bingo tickets that have the best RTP in this game.
This is a complex game with many different random outcomes so a stats tracker wouldn’t do you any good. The best you can get is an overview of how often the game pays out and the usual wins – which you can read about on this page.
