Welcome to the Gambling Capital of the World
There is no location more iconic and representative of Las Vegas than The Strip. All the famous casinos and their neon signs and extravagant fake monuments fill up the background in Vegas Road Trip, with the 3 heroes of the story waiting patiently for you to place your first bet on the central reels.
Vegas Road Trip is both dynamic and colourful, with plenty of impressive 3D animations. Each of the characters has his own personality, either big spender or a more cautious type, and you should feel free to identify with the one that matches your own gambling style best.
What Happens in Vegas…
Vegas Road Trip looks a lot like most Nucleus Gaming slots when it comes to the basic rules. Here again, you have 5 reels and 25 paylines with a betting range that goes from 0.50 to 125 credits per turn. The plus and minus buttons will help you adjust your parameters, and you still have the option to play all-in with the bet max button, or to order the reels to keep spinning in autoplay mode. Each win also activates a coin toss mini game, which is optional but allows you to double every prize you win in Vegas Road Trip.
The basic paytable is just a regular list of card icons, plus a stripper pole with a top prize of x300 available. The 3 heroes, Loony Liam, Balanced Brian and Cautious Charlie, appear as giant symbols, but aren’t worth much in the base game either. Nothing too exciting to see here, and we have to say that sticking to the base game is not the way to have some proper fun in Vegas Road Trip. The volatility can be a little higher than usual as well, so let’s see what the game has to offer in terms of bonus features right away.
…Stays in Vegas
Now, this is where Vegas Road Trip is starting to look more interesting. You will find some neon wild symbols to replace the basic icons, and police cars that work as scatters and award both extra cash and up to 20 free spins wherever they land during the game. At the end of the free games, you even get to spin the bonus wheel and perhaps score an extra cash prize instantly.
Three or more reels filled with the same character symbols, in full view, initiate the Vegas Road Trip bonus round. You get to finally visit the casinos of The Strip and play to win some surprise rewards. Each character has a different play style, corresponding to a specific level of volatility: high (Loony Liam), low (Cautious Charlie) or medium (Balanced Brian).
Many More Ways to Escape to Sin City
Las Vegas is the casino city that ever gambler has to visit at least once in their lives. As a result, the number of slot games inspired by Sin City is staggeringly high, as you can imagine.
Titles like Big Vegas by Bally or Mr Vegas from Betsoft come to mind, both classics with different gameplays but a common point that they share with Vegas Road Trip: a bright neon style, typical of the gambling capital of the world.
A Challenge That Can Prove Very Rewarding
Vegas Road Trip starts from a very classic theme and adds a major contemporary cultural reference to it, giving the whole game a fun twist that is quite typical with Nucleus Gaming slots – and we just loved it.
The stakes can be high in Vegas Road Trip, if you manage to score many bonus features in a row, from the free spins to the actual bonus rounds. In a nutshell, Vegas Road Trip was challenging at first but with patience and perseverance, experienced players should be able to make their way to some impressive cash prizes.
