The walking dead have been an inspiration to hundreds of books and movies and they’re not new to online gaming world either.
NetEnt’s Zombies, Zombie Rush by Leander and Zombie Outbreak by Multimedia have already done their take on these human flesh eaters.
So what makes Lost Vegas different? Well, for starters, you’ll get to choose a team. Picking between Survivors and Zombies not only changes the set of symbols you’re playing with, each one also comes with its own special feature and potential of high rewards.
Scheduled to be released in October 2016, this new Microgaming video slot features 5-reel and 243 ways-to-win, packaged with their usual outstanding graphics and theme-appropriate sound effects.
What We Love
Set against the background of Las Vegas casino (or in this case Lost Vegas), beautifully designed cartoon-styled characters come to life to make your blood curl.
We particularly love the Zombies, be it an evil-looking Elvis evidently thirsting for your blood or the spooky effect of animations activated by winning combinations or as an introduction to special features.
While multiple game modes cannot be considered an innovation any longer, we like the fact that the game enables you to switch from one to the other whenever you want and as many times as you want. This certainly helps to keep interest level high for longer.
Having Bonus land in your lap for no reason at all – who doesn’t like that?! While an unsuspecting gamer spins on as a Survivor or a Zombie, out of the blue his balance might explode with the help of Zombie Fist of Cash or the Blackout Bonus. This should keep base game interesting enough before special features get triggered.
Although both modes award Free Spins activated by Scatter Radioactive Sign symbol, additional bonus feature will depend on whether you’re playing as a Survivor or a Zombie.
First will benefit from collapsible reels and cash rewards for each playing card icon revealed, while the second gets to see so much action they might find it hard to follow.
You’ll be happy to get infected as stacked character symbols appear on the reels, producing Extra Wild Stacks and turning Lost Vegas icons into Wilds. Imagine the payout potential of up to 50 Free Spins with all these goodies on top!
What We Do Not Like
At this stage, not many faults are visible. Potential source of dissatisfaction might be the level of difficulty in triggering special features, but that is yet to be seen.
The whole package is up to Microgaming high standards, so you’ll be sure to enjoy outstanding graphics and special effects in this spooky story. Double game mode always makes a slot more interesting, with a welcome option to keep switching between the two as you please.
While all the gamers are sure to appreciate diversity of special features, final verdict will depend on how easy or hard it is to activate them.
If Microgaming turns out to be generous with Scatter triggers, the high potential win should feel attainable enough to add to Zombie theme attraction and as a result get many gamers on board as soon as the slot is released.
