A slot machine which celebrates Las Vegas, this Red Rake Gaming release is offering retro-style graphics which look great and which seem to have a focus on the musicians and dancers of the city. As you will discover inside, the game has big potential and certain features which can get exciting.
Not only is the game played with a bigger game area, of 5x4 reels, but it also offers more lines than most, 50 in this case. You can get paid up to $500 in the base game combinations, but there is potential for up to $5,000 per combo and $250,000 total during re-spins. Besides re-spins and multipliers, there will also be wilds and disappearing symbols.
Betting and Prizes
The betting starts quite low, particularly for a game with 50 active lines, as the minimum requirement is $0.20 per spin. You can go up to $50 then, but that will let you spend only $1 per line, which is not a lot.
Playing Viva Las Vegas can be profitable, but the RTP of 95.2% doesn’t give the player as big of a chance as he might be looking for. Add the $500 maximum wins from regular combinations, and you will find that the only way to take the game’s rewards seriously is to look at what becomes possible once you factor in the multipliers from the re-spins as well. Only at that point do you get the chance to win more, up to $5,000 in fact. For 50 lines, the game’s potential can reach $250,000.
Viva Las Vegas Slot Features
This is the sort of slot where you can get new symbols to come in whenever a combo forms. This becomes possible because the symbols from the win are removed and leave empty positions behind. As new waves of winning combinations form, you will discover that a meter from the left side gets slowly filled, but it resets if you don’t get enough new waves of wins.
If you manage to get four wins in a row, through re-spins, then the slot will end up triggering free spins. Get even more, to activate multipliers as well. You get a 2x multiplier, then a 3x one, and finally you can get 10x multipliers for the free spins feature which will come next. Besides getting bigger multipliers, the free spins also have an extra wild, in the form of the Viva Las Vegas sign (a regular during the paid spins).
One of the show girls that appear among the slot’s symbols is going to act as the wild. It’s the one colored in gold and sporting the Wild logo, so it’s easy to recognize. These wilds have the ability to expand and cover full reels, plus they form winning combinations among themselves which pay up to 500x (the jackpot).
Theme & Design
The entertaining side of Las Vegas is celebrated here. Viva Las Vegas has several symbols which show off the beautiful women that entertain gamblers in this city, along with a game logo and the image of one of their big casinos. They found room for several card suit icons as well, and they look quite elegant. The overall look is a nice one, a bit on the retro side where the girls are involved.
Viva Las Vegas doesn’t have a huge RTP, but it’s got decent potential (5,000x the stake) and interesting features.
