Vegas Revue Slot from Incredible Technologies
Some people go to Las Vegas for the gambling, others go there for the shows – the Vegas Review slot from Incredible Technologies (ITS) lets you do them both at the same time.
This slot has a progressive jackpot which is triggered by the ‘Gold Stacks’ feature (shared with the Majestic Oasis slot). The highlight is the free spins bonus game, where feathers from those famous showgirl costumes can bring you completely wild reels.
This is a bright and colorful slot, with very vibrant and detailed symbols.
How to Win on Vegas Revue
When you spin the reels you’ll immediately notice that some of the reels have a gold background – though the symbols on them stay the same. This is the Gold Stacks system. For the main game, the symbols behave the same whether they are gold backed or not. Things get interesting when you get 3 or more entire reels with the gold symbols. This will trigger one of the 3 levels of progressive jackpot prizes. These jackpots are shared between banks of attached slots, which can be either the Vegas Review games or the Majestic Oasis ones. To trigger the biggest jackpot, you need to see all of the reels covered in gold. You can improve your chances by betting 3x the minimum or more on each spin (120c+) in which case the first reel will always show some gold.
Back to the main game and the Vegas showgirl symbol is the one that you will want to see most of on the reels. Fortunately, this comes stacked (3 high) as well as in the form of single symbols. The stacked ones show a full length showgirl that will dance when you hit a win. Other original symbols on the reels include show tickets and a rose. There are playing card symbols to supply you with smaller wins.
You will also find wild symbols (made to look like a show sign) which substitute for the regular winning symbols to create more winning combinations. There are green ‘Free Spins’ symbols, which will trigger the free spins bonus game with just 2 in any position on the reels.
Start the Show with the Vegas Revue Free Spins Bonus Game
During the free spins game, the gold stacks system is still in play – so you could land a jackpot as well as bigger wins! The way that you’ll hit those bigger wins is via stacked reels. You will see reels appear with the symbols all covered in the feathers from showgirl costumes. After they have stopped spinning the feathers all part – revealing wild symbols.
If you are lucky enough to combine these wilds with regular wilds and even with the (stacked) showgirl symbols, then you could easily be looking at 10+ wins at the same time. You can retrigger the free spins game with 2 more of the scatter symbols.
Design and Setup
Vegas Revue manages to be bold and bright, while maintaining a somewhat traditional casino slot look and feel. The contrast between the picture of a showgirl (which is very well drawn and contains a lot of detail) and the playing card symbols will strike you as soon as you start to play. The animations are also well produced – including the coin fountain when you hit a reasonable win.
The Gold Stacks system manages to add a new angle to the game play without interfering with the main game too much. When you hit 2 stacks on the first 2 reels, the spin speeds up – much like happens with bonus symbols on many other slots.
I can see this slot having its fans – due to the combination of a solid live slot base game with the extra interest from the Gold Stacks progressives. The base game has stacked symbols and wilds, along with extra wilds in the free spins. This does nothing too special to stand out from the crowd. When you add on the chance of an instant jackpot when the symbols come with gold backgrounds for all the reels, the appeal level certainly goes up.
