Lost Vegas Review
Vegas is a well-known spot for gambling. However, Lost Vegas presents the most dangerous game of all. Win and you will survive. Fail and you become a zombie. What fate awaits you?
- Play as survivors or zombies
- 243 ways to win
- Medium variance with 2155x jackpot
Zombies have become a part of mainstream culture like no other monster has. We have seen them in plenty of locations.
However, no one seems to have considered the idea of zombies and Las Vegas together before Microgaming. So shamble down the street along with the undead Elvis Presley.
By doing so, you will find two free spins, the blackout bonus and the zombie first of cash special features.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
The online slot has two different background images, depending on your mode. Survivors are locked up inside a ruined casino.
Everything is still running, but how long that will last? If you are among the infected, you are roaming the destroyed streets outside.
We like how the higher-value symbols change with the mode you pick. They are living survivors in one mode, and rotting zombies in another.
You play this game on a five-reel, three-row board. There are no paylines in this release. Instead, Lost Vegas uses a ways to win system.
Each spin has 243 ways to win that are used to grant prizes. To win, you need three or more matching icons in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel.
The choice between playing survivor or zombie is more than just cosmetics. It also changes what kind of free spins you will play. Both are activated by finding three or more Scatters simultaneously.
Survivors get Stash free spins. Lower value playing card royals that land on the playing field are removed from the free spins reels.
Each removed symbol adds a cash prize to your stash. At the end of free spins, the stash prize is added to your win total. Free spins continue until all playing card royals are stashed.
Zombies get Infection free spins. Full reel zombies will appear on the board. These infected reels turn single Wilds into stacked Wilds!
Free spins continue until all reels are infected. Up to fifty free spins can be played. If you play all fifty free spins, you win an additional cash prize.
The Blackout bonus has a random chance of activating during normal gameplay. It changes the look of the playing field and highlights all high-value icons.
The highlighted symbols will then grant a cash prize! During the blackout special feature, you only need one Scatter to activate free spins.
Another random bonus is the Zombie Fist of Cash. It can also only trigger outside of free spins, on any non-winning spin. A fist will burst from the bottom of the playing field, granting a random cash prize.
Where To Play Lost Vegas?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
The RTP of Lost Vegas is 95.77%. This is just slightly below the current industry average, which sits at 96%.
You can bet between $0.30 and $45 on each spin. This is a good spread of bets, which will please both casual players and high rollers.
Players get a medium variance, with a top prize worth 2155x your total stake. We like this math model, as it appeals to all types of casino members.
A zombie apocalypse never felt so fun to play. Microgaming has effectively made two versions of the slot.
The serious one with survivors, and a somewhat silly one with the zombies. Both versions give you a good reason to play them.
That way the key reason we enjoyed this game as much as we did. We can name releases that have done individual things better than Lost Vegas.
However, none of them formed such a fun final product! That is why we are giving this title a 4 out of 5 stars rating.
