Arriving July 1, Monopoly Voice Banking features none other than Rich Uncle Pennybags himself as the voice of the virtual assistant-although he's apparently now simply known as Mr. Monopoly.

Business Insider played Monopoly Voice Banking and preferred it to the original, calling it "an efficient, faster version that's simple to play", although one with a slight learning curve.

In an effort to speed up the notoriously long game, this new version allows a maximum of only four players instead of six, offers fewer properties and ditches the option of acquiring railroads or the electric company.
