With so many zombie-themed slots out on the net now, you can be forgiven for being a bit bored with them. Microgaming’s Lost Vegas is second only to Genesis Gaming’s new Attack of the Zombie’s slot, though. This is a game which captures the genre perfectly and offers a twist on it (zombies in Las Vegas). Lost Vegas is played over 5 reels and Microgaming’s typical 243 ways to win payline structure. Microgaming claim you can win up to 485,000 coins in this video slot, which costs between 30p and £225 a spin to play.
Players can choose to play either as Survivors or Zombies, and the mode you pick will impact your special features in the bonus game.
The Lost Vegas logo acts as a wild and can substitute for all other icons save for scatters.
A Zombie Fist of Cash bonus can arise randomly at any point in the base game. When it does, players can pocket an instant cash prize just like that.
At any point in the game, a Blackout Bonus can randomly crop up. When it does, players only need a single scatter icon to trigger a free spins feature, as opposed to the three scatters they will normally need. All high symbols also award cash prizes in the Blackout Bonus feature.
Three or more hazard symbols scatters on the reels will see you pocket scattered wins, as well as trigger one of two free spin bonuses. The bonus you get depends on the mode you selected. If you choose the Survivor bonus, you will get free spins and all symbols will be stashed away one by one. At the end of the feature (when all symbols have been collected), players will pocket a grand prize. The Zombie bonus is far better. It has an Infection feature which sees single reels turn into wilds. The bonuses only end once all the reels are wild. You can enjoy up to 50 spins with this latter bonus and are guaranteed to enjoy all the reels wild. You can’t beat that.
The Zombie Infection bonus feature (with 5 wild reels) alone is enough to make players want to give Microgaming’s Lost Vegas slot a run for its money.
