Electronic Arts has decided to push the Monopoly brand just a little bit more today by releasing two new Monopoly themed casino games onto Android. One is Monopoly Bingo while the other new game is Monopoly slots, both of which are available for download off of Google Play for free.

Electronic Arts is actually having quite the sale this holiday seasons and it goes much further than Need For Speed: Most Wanted and Contre Jour being only $0.99 for the holidays, while a lot of the free-to-play games EA has, such as TheSims and Theme Park, are having sales regarding in-game purchases. There also happens to be holiday themed items you can find in some of those games as well.
One of my favorite board games as a kids was Monopoly. I never seemed to win a lot but I liked playing. I still have it at the house, which my kids now play. When Monopoly came out for Android, I was a bit skeptical. Could they really reproduce the game in electronic format? Well after playing it awhile on my ASUS Transformer tablet, I have to say yes!
EA has come around to finally release the classic board game of Monopoly onto the Android Market. It comes complete with some pretty nice 3D visuals and contains all the rules and pieces you would find in the actual board game itself.
Seems EA Mobile has another title they are planning to release onto the Android Market this holiday season. First it was the much anticipated Need for Speed: Shift followed by The Sims 3. Both games were exclusive on certain Android devices until last week when they landed on the Market. Next seems to be Monopoly.
