Solid Mix of Pay Symbols
Weekend in Vegas looks a lot like an online pokie version of The Hangover. If you haven’t seen the movie, go check it out. This pokie centers around three buddies that go to Las Vegas for fun and gambling.
The game has a mix of high and low paying symbols. The Royals serve as both high and low paying symbols with the Ace and King being the second and third highest paying symbols. The stripper is the highest paying symbol. The buddies are also paying symbols but are on the lower end of the spectrum.
This is an All Ways Pay game, giving you a better shot at winning. You’ll need to hit multi-line wins to have a shot at turning a profit in this game, but in my testing, you’ll get quite a chances at a big win. I hit a multi-line five of a kind three times. Twice with jacks and twice with Balanced Ben.
There are a few bonus features for this game that can help you generate big wins. Let’s look at a few.
Anytime you have two or more reels filled with the same buddy character, you will trigger a re-spin. This respin will either help you snag a winning combination, increase an existing winning combo, or help you trigger the bonus round.
If you have three or more reels filled with the same character, you trigger a Bonus Round. During the Bonus Round, you’ll hit the Vegas Strip and try your luck at the casinos. Pick from six different casinos to win a cash prize. Pick right and you’ll get a prize and continue playing. You keep picking until your streak is over.
Your potential to win is based on the character that triggers the bonus round. For Loony Larry, you are not going to win often, but when you do win, it will be massive. Cautious Chris is not a big winner, but he always wins. Balanced Ben is in the middle and gets solid wins.
I was lucky enough to trigger this feature once and won about $15. Not too bad actually.
Vegas Police Free Spins
The police cruiser is the scatter for this game. Landing two scatters will net you a payday while three or more will unlock the free spins game. Get 8 free spins for three scatters, 12 for four, and 20 free spins for five scatters.
During the free spins game all standard and scatter payouts are doubled, giving you a great chance of hitting a big win.
Once free spins are concluded, you will get a spin on the Money Wheel. You’re guaranteed a prize on the spin. However, if you land on a green arrow, you get to spin again for the next wheel in. The farther you go into the wheel, the bigger the prizes.
I will admit, the free spins feature was a bit of a bust when I landed it. The spins didn’t win a dime and the money wheel only won me $1.50. However, I can see this being very lucrative if you happen to catch lucky. In my case, I think I used up my luck in the main game.
Weekend in Vegas a Fun Game With Solid RTP
Weekend in Vegas was a very deceptive pokie. When I first started playing, I was running colder than the sprinter in Siberia. However, the game started paying out well and in the end, I finished with a solid profit.
This is not surprising considering the game has an RTP of 96.6%. Based on my testing, I would classify this in the lower end of volatility, but your results may vary. Overall, I found this game a lot of fun and it is definitely a game you should check out.
Weekend in Vegas is available at CasinoNic and all Australian Online Casinos offering BetSoft pokies. It is perfect for all bankrolls with bets ranging from .25 to $25 per spin, making it a perfect pokie for clearing online casino bonuses.
