The Wombat Says: Bored of the usual Zombie games? I am. But creep-fest Lost Vegas Slot, stands out as one my favourites with its dual play mode, and brain-eating Elvis Presley symbols. It’s up there with the Dark Thirst slot for Norman Bates points.
Picture the scene: You’re in Vegas and half way through the perfect hand of poker when the Zombie Apocalypse hits… What do you do? I’m thinking, ‘order another frozen margherita’, but that’s just me. Keeping tabs on the Undead is probably more important, and that’s exactly what you’ll need to do in the Lost Vegas game. Everyone else seems to have headed off to Mexico (maybe they’re playing the Spinata Grande slot?)
This bloody thirsty slot starts with a nice twist. You must decide if you want to play as a flesh-eating zombie, or a survivor of the Undead Apocalypse – but bear in mind your choice affects the bonus rounds as I’ll explain below.
How to Win
Lost Vegas is a 243 Ways to Win slot – which bascially means that symbols can stack up in any position to give you wins, as long as they appear in adjacent columns running left to right from reel one.
Complicated? Ok I’ll explain. Let´s say that you are betting €9 a spin and 5 half dead zombie nurses turn up, one on each of the 5 reels. You´ll win €45 wherever they appear on the reels. If you land 4, each on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4, then the payout is €12. Geddit?
If you’re still confused, then head to the Lost Vegas slot, select your bet amount and then hit the PAYS slider button on the right hand side of the game. The entire pay-table is displayed in an easy to read chart.
Anyway, back to the gameplay:
If you get 3 or more scatters anywhere across the reels, you will launch the Free Spins game. Fanfare please! Plus you´ll also win a scatter prize (3 pays double your bet, 4 pays 10x and 5 pays out 50x your bet).
Zombie Mode Get ready for some spine-ripping features! In Zombie Mode, you´ll get free spins by using the Infection Feature. You might see full stacks of zombies which then infect the other reels. Infected reels turn single wilds into stacked wilds, all helping your chances of landing winning combinations.
The free games will continue until all of the reels have been infected (you can get up to 50 free spins this way). If you manage to hit 50 free spins you´ll also receive a bonus prize. So that´s Zombie Mode and it´s a good ´un!
Survivor Mode There’s not many flies in the Survivor Mode bonus either. As a Survivor the Lost Vegas slot gives you free spins with a Stash Feature. Any of the following playing card symbols(A, K, Q, J, 10) that land are subsequently removed from the reels, and each time one is whisked away, more bloody cash is added to your pile (and bloody means bloody with these brain-eaters) If you make up another winning combination after the symbols have been stashed, you might even win again. These free spins will continue until all of the royal cards have been stashed. So that´s the bonus in Survivor mode on Lost Vegas. This wombat says ‘yeah!’
What´s that?, I hear you ask. A Blackout Bonus? The Blackout Bonus is a random feature where all high symbols pay out. But the best bit is that only one scatter symbol is needed to set off the free spins mode.
Zombie Fist of Cash
Would you believe there is another feature? The Lost Vegas slot Zombie Fist of Cash. It’s a random win feature that can pop up in either mode. Just when you’re getting tired of the spinning, a zombie fist appears clutching a load of cash which is yours- all yours! Mwwahhhaaaahaaaa.
This is a great zombie slot that works on mobiles, tablets, laptops and desktop. I love dual player modes and the many bonus features -all of which increase your chances of a win. Plus, it’s in my spiritual home Las Vegas, so what’s not to like?
