If you’ve never made it to America’s gambling capital you can enjoy a taste of the bright lights of Sin City from the comfort of your armchair thanks to the Vegas Hits slot from Bally Technologies. Featuring a casino theme, Vegas Hits is a 5reel, 40 payline slot that comes with plenty of goodies including free spins, locked reels, cash bonuses and multipliers topping 25x. Join the action from between 40p and £400 per spin.
As you’d expect from a slot celebrating Las Vegas, the reels are packed full of casino related imagery. Look out for blackjack hands, roulette wheels, dice, cherries, fruit machines and lucky 7s. The famous Las Vegas sign is the biggest payer, offering 1,000 times your line bet if you find 5 in a payline.
Look out too for the selection of poker chips – when these appear anywhere on the reels you’ll be awarded a multiplier. They start at 1x for the green chip going up to 5x for the red and 10x for the blue. If you’re lucky enough to hit the yellow you’ll be awarded 25x your total stake.
Find 3 blue U-Spin symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature – you’ll be presented with a Wheel of Fortune style wheel. Give it a spin to decide precisely which features you’ll be awarded. There’s a bumper selection on offer including, but not limited to, 8 free spins with reels 4 and 5 wild, 5 free spins with 1 wild reel per spin, 3 spins with cherries wild and 1 spin with all the poker chips on the reels.
Look out too for the green U-Spin symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 – this activates the Money Wheel. Instead of extra spins, this wheel will give you a cash bonus. Give it a spin, wherever the pointer stops will be the size of the bonus awarded.
The graphics are nice and sharp, all set against a night time backdrop of Las Vegas. The on screen action is accompanied by a thumping soundtrack which is a little cheesy.
There are plenty of features to get your teeth into here with the variance on the low side – the free spins don’t come around too often but can be lucrative then they do. Whether you win big depends largely on which of the bonus features you manage to trigger.
Vegas Hits may not quite have the glamour of the real thing but it’s an entertaining and potentially lucrative slot if the wheel of fortune is pointing in your direction. I also recommend IGT’s Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin as LeoVegas’ exclusive Vegas Party by NetEnt.
