Las Vegas in your Living Room
Have you ever dreamed of going to Las Vegas? While many of us are not able to afford a trip to Sin City, you can bring Las Vegas into your home with Vegas Lux. This new 5-Reel, 720 Ways to Win pokie has a fun Vegas theme with the ability to score huge prizes.
The background is set in Las Vegas and even has what looks like the Bellagio fountains in the foreground. As someone who has been to Vegas multiple times, the background indeed captures the feel of the Las Vegas Strip.
The pay symbols for this game are what you’d expect for a Vegas-themed game. You have cherries, Royals, Showgirls, High Roller Gamblers, Triple 7s, and Diamonds. For all symbols except Diamonds, you have to get three or more on a line from left to right or right to left. Diamonds pay off anytime three or more appear anywhere on board.
Like many RTG games, the payouts for this game are somewhat low for all but the top symbols. You have to hit on multiple lines to have a shot to turn a profit on most spins. Fortunately, you have some Vegas Wild symbols to help you with this. Also, the Free Games feature can give you a shot at accumulating some big wins.
Free Games Feature
The Free Games symbol is the scatter for this game. When you have a Free Games symbol on each of the 5 reels, you unlock the Free Games feature. The minimum number of free spins you can win is 8. However, if you trigger the Free Games feature with multiple winning combinations, you will be awarded additional spins.
For example, if you have 3 winning combinations for the Free Games feature, you will get 8 spins for each combination, or 24 total. The maximum number of spins you can win is 240 free spins. Your free spins will be played at the bet when the games were triggered.
If there is a downside to this game, it is that you don’t have any additional features for this feature. You won’t get extra wilds, no symbols are removed, nor are there any multipliers. They are just plain free games.
We triggered this feature three times and unfortunately did not win much more than 8x our initial bet. However, the games did trigger pretty quick, so those of you that like to play long sessions may get multiple shots at the Free Games feature.
Fun Game But Plays a Bit Tight
Like most RTG games, this game does not have a published RTP. However, from our testing, we would say that this game is on the higher side of middle variance. We experienced a couple of decent wins in the main game, but the Free Games feature was largely disappointing. Over two sessions, we barely broke even.
For those that don’t like a lot of variance in their play, this may not be the best game. For those that want a shot at big prizes, check this game out. Uptown Pokies presently has a new game promotion for this pokie. Other casinos offering this game include Planet 7 Casino and Raging Bull Casino. You’ll also find this game anywhere Real Time Gaming products are offered.
