Choose a Side: Zombies or Survivors
Lost Vegas is a 3-row, 5-reel, ‘243 Way Win’ slot set in the heart of a Las Vegas ravaged by the zombie apocalypse. It offers 2 game modes (Survivor & Zombie). Each comes with its own symbols and background. Survivor mode’s reels are set against a deserted airport backdrop with uninfected humans as symbols. Zombie mode’s reels are covered in Zombie symbols set against a dark, abandoned Vegas strip with blinking lights. Switching between game modes can be done at any time with the press of the button located in the upper right corner. Overall, the graphics quality of Lost Vegas is quite good when compared to most slots enhanced by sufficiently creepy animations appropriate to the theme. Of course, online slots with incredibly detailed graphics, such as Microgaming’s Jungle Jim El Dorado, are obviously superior.
Lost Vegas shows credit values for Balance, Bet and Win beneath the reels. This online slot allows players to choose a Total Bet ranging from 30p – £45 at 32Red online casino. To select a Bet, choose a number of Coins (1 – 15) and a Coin Size (0.01 – 0.10). Lost Vegas’ Paytable lists possible winning combinations in credits. Pays change to reflect bet selection.
Lost Vegas has 2 different sets of high-paying regular symbols depending on which mode is chosen. The low-paying and special symbols remain constant despite game mode selection. There are 2 special symbols including a Hazard Bonus Scatter and a Logo Wild. The Hazard Bonus Scatter awards pays for a winning combo of 2 – 5 matching symbols and is involved in triggering Free Spins. The Wild can substitute for any regular symbol and awards its own pays of 3 – 5 matching symbols. Lost Vegas has 10 regular symbols active during gameplay at a time. 5 high-paying survivor/zombie symbols are interchangeable from mode to mode: Zombie Elvis/Pilot, Zombie Tourist/Stewardess, Infected Nurse/Gangster, Hellish Showgirl/Blonde Tourist and Wedding Couple/Golfer. 5 low-paying symbols remain constant despite mode selection: Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10.
Gameplay is left to right (with the exception of the Scatter), and Lost Vegas offers 243 ways to win. Get 2+ Scatters or 3+ of any other symbol across adjacent reels to form a winning combination. To profit along a single payline, get 3+ Scatters or Wilds, get 4+ Infected Nurses/Gangsters or higher and get 5+ of any Lost Vegas symbol.
The Hazard Bonus Scatter is the highest paying symbol of Lost Vegas. It shows a value of (150, 30, 6, 3) with a bet selection of 3.00. The Scatter has the potential to award up to 50x the Bet for a 5 of a kind match. The Logo Wild is the 2nd highest paying symbol showing a value of (30, 10, 3.50) giving it the potential to award up to 10x the Bet for a 5 of a kind match.
Microgaming slots commonly offer an Autoplay option. Lost Vegas gives players the choice of a range of 5 – 500 consecutive spins.
Lost Vegas Bonus Features
Zombie Fist of Cash: This Lost Vegas Feature randomly awards a cash win on spins which haven’t already produced a winning combo. It can occur during either Survivor mode or Zombie mode.
Blackout Bonus: This Feature randomly triggers during Main gameplay during either Zombie or Survivor mode. The screen goes dark and winning symbols glow. The Blackout Bonus transforms all high paying symbols on the reels into cash prizes. It also has the added benefit of only requiring 1 Hazard Bonus Scatter symbol to trigger a round of Free Spins.
Free Spins: The appearance of 3+ Hazard Bonus Scatters triggers a round of Free Spins. If Survivor mode is selected, a special Stash Feature is granted to the round. This Feature awards a cash prize for all low-paying card symbols (Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10). Each spin, these low symbols disappear as they are cashed in and new symbols fall into place. This repeats until no new low-paying symbols appear. If Zombie mode is selected, a special Infectious Feature is granted to the round. Stacked Zombies that fill an entire reel turn it infectious. Infected reels transform ordinary Wilds into Stacked Wilds. The round ends when all 5 reels are infected or a max of 50 Free Spins have been played. If a player happens to make it through all 50 possible spins, a special cash bonus prize is awarded.
