Lost Vegas Slot Review
The last decade has seen the popularity of the zombie genre reach new heights in movies and TV shows. And Microgaming looks to capitalize on this popularity with Lost Vegas, which takes you into a post-apocalyptic Sin City. With undead showgirls, tourists, and an Elvis impersonator, this is one frightening slots adventure that you won’t want to miss.
Now let’s take a closer look at what to expect in terms of Lost Vegas’ atmosphere, symbols, betting, features, and return to player (RTP).
Lost Vegas Details
Lost Vegas opens by allowing you to choose a side: Zombies or Survivors. If you choose the survivors, your free spins will include the Stash Feature; if you pick the zombies, free spins include the Infection feature (both explained later). You can switch sides at any point during the game.
Symbols include a variety of armed survivors and dangerous zombies. The survivors are holding everything from baseball bats and handguns to golf clubs and flamethrowers. When playing as the zombies, you’ll see Elvis, a nurse, showgirl, businessman, and glamour-girl zombie.
One thing to really like about this game is how well the symbol graphics blend with the muted backgrounds, thus creating a true post-apocalyptic world. You’ll also notice a nice variety of dilapidated Vegas backgrounds as you play.
This is a 5-reel, 243-ways-to-win game, and the minimum bet is fixed at €0.30. There’s an autospin feature that you can use to keep the reels spinning with your selected betting options.
Lost Vegas Slot Features
Even if you could care less about the zombie theme in this game, you’ll enjoy the multiple special features. Here’s a closer look at what to expect with Lost Vegas’ features.
- Blackout Bonus (Zombies Side) – The Blackout Bonus sees the reels turn grey, and you scan them with infrared goggles to reveal symbols that offer cash prizes. If at least one scatter symbols is on the reels, you’ll trigger free spins as well.
- Fist of Cash (Survivors Side) – This feature sees a zombie hand randomly pop up with a fist-full of cash. When the fist appears, you’ll be awarded a cash payout. Like the Blackout Bonus, this too awards free spins if at least one scatter symbols appears.
- Free Spins w/ Infection Feature (Zombies Side) – When you land 3 or more hazard scatter symbols on the reels, or get one hazard symbol with either of the above features, you unlock free spins. The zombies’ side offers an Infection feature, where wild symbols expand and infect other reels that they touch to give you more wilds.
- Free Spins w/ Stash Feature (Survivors Side) – When playing as survivors, you get the stash feature during free spins. This is a cascading reels effect, where paying symbols are replaced by falling symbols from above. The disappearing symbols go towards the survivors’ stash, which gives you more credits in the end.
Lost Vegas Slot Payout (RTP%)
RTP for Lost Vegas is 96.5%, which is good when compared to the online slot industry. Considering the high RTP, excellent atmosphere, and multiple features, Lost Vegas is a good game even if you’re tired of the zombie genre.
