With one simple-seeming added feature, the casino game software designer/developers at Microgaming have killed the competition (very nearly literally) with the brilliantly fun and funny Lost Vegas slots magic
Let’s get this out there straight away as well: The Lost Vegas slot is not to be confused with Last Vegas, the flick about old dudes (Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline and Michael Douglas) kicking around in Sin City, which was neither brilliant nor particularly funny. And don’t be fooled by imitators: Trillions of slots games are Vegas-themed and a few sport post-apocalyptic science-fiction milieus, but none capture both in as awesome fashion as does the Last Vegas slot. What is this “Play Zombies” button in the Lost Vegas slot?
The Lost Vegas slot is set in Las Vegas but after the zombie apocalypse has collapsed civilization on our planet. On the streets of cities worldwide, the battle between living and undead is waged. You’ve seen it before, but how many slots allow the choice to play as either side?
In the Lost Vegas slot, choose between the “play survivors” or “play zombies.” All the high-paying symbols (characters surviving the aftermath of disaster) switch, as do the backgrounds on the low-paying symbols.
I know, right? Perhaps we could consider Lost Vegas slot’s most fantastic feature also to be its most irrelevant. I mean, come on! The zombie side has a freakin’ living dead Elvis impersonator! No way can some buff youngsters hold a candle to a tasteless badass like Undead Elvis!
(After some slightly less excited contemplation, one good reason to “play survivors” in the Lost Vegas slot might simply be for breaking up a cold streak. Or if one wants to try a second bonus game.
If you’re in “Play Survivors” mode, the “Blackout Bonus” feature is launched at random after any spin; this is a “pick ‘em”-style game with some big coinage available. The “Zombie Fist of Cash”, which, you gotta admit is way cooler than “Blackout”, may pop up at random and award prizes in similar fashion
You bet your Roger Corman! Playing as survivors gets the player three free spins in cascade mode, i.e. with winning combinations replaced on the reels by new symbols and possibly more wins. The zombies get to “infect” the reels: Each zombie becomes a stacked wild during the Lost Vegas slot’s free spins. In addition, each zombie symbol “infects” the symbols around them to become wilds as well. Some possible high pays here, but striking out with three empty spins is also not impossible.
Zombies f***ing rule, man. Now let me *eat YOUR BRAIN*!
