I’m trying to make a digital version of Monopoly, and it would be easiest for me if I could use the base rent of a property to determine the rent with any number of houses. Is there a formula/equation that can be used to do so?

    If you have a game available, it is easy to figure this out yourself. – Toon Krijthe Sep 27 '18 at 13:34
  • Unless one is quite a capable mathematician, finding the equations that would give the correct rent for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 houses is not "easy to figure out" at all. Perhaps Trevor is asking precisely because of that. @ToonKrijthe – Nij Sep 27 '18 at 19:38

There is no formula that the game uses, different properties go up at different rates, and not always a consistent rate. You'll need to hard code the per property rent values into your system unfortunately.


Here are the Rents for all of the Monopoly properties that can be developed, with their names in both the traditional Atlantic City version as well as the London England version:
