In this post, I will discuss in detail about the Monopoly Electronic Banking Rules and all you need to know about the game.

Monopoly Electronic Banking Rules

Let’s get started!

Monopoly Electronic Banking Rules

Like other Monopoly versions, the Monopoly Electronic banking has several rules for Jail, property buying, selling, and more.

Here are the rules:

Jail Rules

Monopoly electronic banking has specific jail rules. The game has a feature where a player can go to jail. During your gameplay, you are considered in jail if you land on the ‘Go to Jail’ space.

Apart from this, you can also go to jail if you pick up a ‘Go to Jail’ card from the community chest. Moreover, if you roll three sets of doubles in a row, it also leads you to jail.

Now you might wonder what the consequences of landing in jail are. Well, your turn ends if you go to jail. Just landing on the jail space does not charge you anything and is considered as visiting.

However, the gameplay provides you with an option to roll doubles three times on your next turn. But if you fail in the attempt, you need to pay the bank a penalty of $500 thousand.

You can get out of jail only by paying the amount, rolling doubles, or using the ‘Get out of the jail free’ card. If you do not have the card, you get an option to buy it from other players.

If you get out of jail by paying the bond, your next space depends on the total on your final roll after paying. The exciting part is that rent collection does not pause while you are in jail.

Property Rules

Monopoly also allows the players to buy, sell, or build properties.

1. Buying property:

Here, you can buy a property if you land in such a space. The property price is listed on the card, which you must pay the property owner or the banker. The bank holds an auction if you deny buying the property and can even participate.

You become a monopolist if you buy all the properties of a site of a particular color. You can even add to the property and charge rent on it if they happen to land on your site.

You can also buy airports and charge fees from other players landing at the airport. The amount depends on the figure on the title deed card. Apart from this, you can also own utilities.

The players landing on your utilities must pay you a usage fee, which is 40,000 times the amount in the dice roll.

You can own phone and internet utilities. If a player lands on both of these utilities you own, they pay you 1,00,000 times the amount on the die roll.

2. Selling property:

When selling your property, you can sell it to the bank or other players. If you sell a property to the other player at a negotiable price, you need to sell all the Houses of the same color on the property.

However, selling houses and hotels to other players is no option. You can only sell airports, utilities, or sites. If you decide to sell your houses and hotels to the bank, the bank pays you half the purchase price on the deed card.

In the case of hotels, you can also exchange them for houses summing up to the same price.

Free Parking Rules

The free parking zone is the resting space for the players. Here you need not pay any penalty and can proceed with your transactions normally.

Mortgage Rules

You can also mortgage properties whenever you need money from the bank. To mortgage a property, you need to sell all the buildings of a color group.

You mortgage a property by turning the property card upside down and finding the amount of the mortgage on the back of it. Once you mortgage a property, you can not collect any rent on it.

You can continue collecting the rent on your mortgaged property only after paying the mortgage amount and the interest.

If you want to avoid paying the interest, you can sell your mortgaged property to another player at an agreeable price. The interest now is upon the buyer of your mortgaged property.

How much money do you start with in Monopoly Electronic banking?
