Monopoly Money goes Plastic
In response to a YouGov survey of 2,056 adults which showed 70% used cash less often than they did a decade ago, game-makers Parker have introduced a new version of monopoly where debit cards are used instead of money.
Players will use a Visa mock debit card, which is inserted into an electronic machine where the banker taps in cardholders’ earnings and payments and allows players to keep track of how much they win or lose.
” Parker said replacing of cash with plastic showed the game was moving with the times. Spokesman Chris Weatherhead said: ‘The new electronic Monopoly reflects the changing nature of society and the advancement of technology.’ “
It is part of an international deal between Parker and Visa, which designed the mock debit card and its electronic machine.
Monopoly ‘Here and Now Electronic Banking’ costs £24.99, compared to £12.99 for the standard ‘cash version’.
