The Wombat says: Let’s get back to basics. No, I’m not talking about the legendary super club in Leeds. But slot basics. Simple low variance games. When was the last time you came across one? Quite some time I’ll wager.
Well, if you like your slots on the straightforward side, then you’ll be delighted to get spinning on Vegas Night Life slot from NetEnt.
With just 20 pay-lines (just like the Augustus slot from Neon Valley) and a max win of 900x your bet you could be forgiven for thinking this game is a bit of a damp squib BUT (and it’s a big but) you would be forgetting all about the 3 jackpots that are on offer; Mini, Midi and Mega.
Let’s head to the Strip Wombat Fans!
Look and Feel
This game is filled with the sights and sounds of Vegas by Night. We’re talking fancy champagne, fast cars, craps tables, and neon-lit casinos all along the strip in blues, purples, and pinks. This game is brighter then the Energoonz slot baby!
In the background to your reels you’ll see the faux Statue of Liberty at New York New York Hotel, and fake Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas. Either side of the reels sit the Midi and Mini jackpots while the mega jackpot balance takes centre stage.
All-inoall it’s flashy and fun – not unlike Sin City itself. It’s been a long time since this wombat has visited the Home of Slots, but this game does a great job of taking me right back there.
Vegas Night Life Slot Game Play
Vegas Night Life slot has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines, just like the Aquatic Treasures slot from Gold Coin Studios . Place your bets in Sin City from as little as 0.20 up to 100.00 per spin.
The four highest-paying icons in play are the red flashy sports car, a bling bling ring, a fancy Rolex watch and a bottle of the bubbly stuff. Meanwhile the playing card suits Spades, Hearts, Diamonds and Clubs make up the rest of your pay table.
Land 3x, 4x, or 5x of the red Ferrari and you’ll net 4x, 8x, or 15x your bet. Not bad.
The Wild icons are done up in gold letters and will replace all other symbols to make more wins for you – all except the Scatters. These are represented by the monochrome casino chips.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Land 3x Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you will trigger of the Bonus Features. Now each Scatter will turn into a ‘Pick Me’ icon. Behind each you’ll find one of these features: Instant Win, Free Spins or Cash Stacker. Choose one and play…
The number of spins you’ll scoop here depends on how many scatters you landed, so x3, x4, or x5 Scatters will mean 5, 10, or 20 Free Spins for you respectively. During the round, all your wins come with a x3 multiplier. Bonza!
Click on an Instant Win chip and you will receive an instant win multiplier from 7.5x to 250x your bet. Plus, if you landed 4 or 5 scatters to set off the feature, the pay will be multiplied by 2x or 4x respectively.
Cash Stacker and Mini, Midi and Mega Jackpots
This is the bonus that gives you the chance to win one of the Jackpots. If you picked the Cash Stacker, you’ll be taken to a new set of smaller reels with 3 rows, one for each Jackpot.
But instead of the standard icons spinning, only dollar bill signs will hit the reels. Fill up an entire row with dollar bill symbols, and you could win either Mini, Midi, or Mega Jackpot.
If you don’t manage to hit the Jackpot – you’ll still win the total value of all the icons.
Viva Las Vegas!
Design wise, Vegas Night Life slot really captures the Vegas vibe.So full marks to NetEnt.
OK, the base game is rather not the most exciting out there – but what do you expect from a low variance slot? And when it comes to the bonuses this Wombat is a big fan of the Instant Win. It can definitely up the ante, with wins up to 250x your bet on offer. Sadly, hitting one of the jackpots is as hard as you’d expect.
Escape to Sin City today in this glitzy game!
Wombat score: 4/5
Vegas Night Life Slot
How is the Mega Jackpot won?
The Progressive Mega Jackpot is won when the Cash Stacker feature is set off. Manage this by landing 3x Scatters and clicking a ‘Pick Me’ with Cash Stacker underneath it.
Now fill the whole of reel 3 with dollar signs and that Mega Jackpot is yours!
