The quirky and unique TVC will be aired on four free-to-air television channels and 12 Astro channels. To celebrate this, a total of 7 units iPhone 6 will be exclusively up for grabs from February 1st to 7th, 2015. During this period, LINE will be selecting one newly registered user at random each day for 7 days. Details of the promotion and winners will be announced via the LINE Malaysia Official Account. It is indeed that simple to win!

A real-time competition game with unpredictable elements each round, LINE Let’s Get Rich brings back the nostalgia of our childhood board games. This online board game features a multiple player gameplay of four with a simple objective – invest in real estate around the world and compete to earn the highest amount of total capital. 

LINE Let’s Get Rich

There are three ways for players to conquer and win the game. Firstly, a “Triple Monopoly” occurs if a player achieves three “Colour Monopolies” by owning all the properties of three different colours. A “Line Monopoly” will result in victory if a player owns all the properties in a single row. Finally, players can win through a “Tourism Monopoly” as well if they manage to acquire all the tourist locations. The game will also be determined if any players run out of resources during the game, or until turns or time is over, with the player rankings being decided by the total amount of resources owned by each player. 

LINE Let’s Get Rich offers a variety of modes, such as single play and multiplayer competitive modes. Players can choose to either compete or cooperate with friends and family they are connected to through LINE, individually or in 2-on-2 teams.

“Board games have been a favorite for many Malaysians back in those days. We’re delighted that through LINE Let’s Get Rich, we’re able to bring back such happy reminiscence for Malaysians of all ages to enjoy while on the go with their mobile devices. The contest and the TVC launch is just the beginning of many exciting plans LINE have in store this year and we’re looking forward to share them with our users in due time,” said Patricia Yeoh, Public Relations Manager of LINE Malaysia.
