Exploring the City of Bright Lights
The theme of the slot is immediately revealed on entering the gaming screen with the neon signs and glittering lights shining brightly in the background. The images on the reels include lots of casino-related icons along with images of wealth and luxury, such as Champagne bottles and piles of gold bars.
There is no regular background music, though you can hear the sounds effects of people in a busy casino. Each spin is accompanied by a jingle and any win also awards a jaunty tune along with your payout. The slot screen is arranged with 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines. The betting options are clearly laid out at the bottom of the screen with the ‘change stake’ section letting you choose your bet and a paytable button opening up the symbols and your potential payouts.
Choose Your Betting Level
There is no decision to make as to the number of paylines to play because all 20 are fixed into position for every spin. You can only choose your stake per spin by clicking on the plus and minus buttons to choose a bet. The minimum bet per spin is €0.20 and the max bet per spin is €100. Other options to enhance your gameplay include an ‘autoplay’ button, which lets you play up to 25 spins automatically.
When you open the paytable you can see all the potential rewards. The Las Vegas logo pays the highest amount of up to 10,000 credits for hitting 5 symbols together on a payline. The Las Vegas logo is also the wild symbol, which means it can stand in for the other icons in the game to create extra winning chances. Second in line on the paytable is the pile of gold bars, which pays up to 1000 credits for 5 symbols. The Champagne bottle pays up to 500 credits, while the lower awards are paid by the high card symbols from Ace to 10.
Wheel, Mini Reels and Chips Bonus Games
If you hit 3 or more of the coloured wheel bonus symbols, you begin the Wheel bonus round. You can play either the cash wheel or the free spins wheel to determine your prize. the cash wheel awards up to 500x your bet while the free spins wheel awards up to 30 free spins. If you hit 4 symbols to trigger the round you get a 3x multiplier for your free spins, and if you hit 5 symbols this will become a 10x multiplier!
The Mini Reels bonus round is awarded if you manage to hit 3 slot machine images together on the screen. Simply spin the mini reels to receive cash prizes. If you hit a triple bar symbol you can win up to 5x your total bet. Finally, if you spin 3 or more chip stacks on the reels you begin the Chips Bonus round which awards cash prizes randomly depending on which chip stack is selected.
