Open now and ending on 31st January, fans worldwide can visit www.VoteMonopoly.com to choose eight tokens that they’d like to see in the next generation of the Monopoly game.

Fans can vote from a list of more than 50 contenders including the current tokens and new options such as a penguin, rubber duck and bunny slipper.
