Big Vegas Slot by Bally Technologies
The Big Vegas slot is a cartoon-style online video slot game produced by Bally Technologies. Big Vegas has a casino/Vegas theme and features images of poker chips, playing cards, martini’s and slot machines. The cartoon style graphics give the game a lightheaded feel which are accompanied by classic casino sound effects. The backdrop to the game is an image of a poker table in a casino decorated with various frilly patterns. The reels appear semi-translucent displaying the various reel images inside an opaque beige background.
5 Reel Vegas Themed Slot
The Big Vegas slot game features five spinning reels with three rows and 40 paylines. In this game, the coin denomination can be set from 0.01 coins up to 10 coins per payline. Despite its rather basic setup, Big Vegas is packed with bonus feature in the form of a Wild symbol, Directional Wilds, free spins and locked Wilds. On the reels, the highest paying non-bonus symbol is the image of the slot machine. Finding all five of these across the reels will pay out 3000 coins on a max bet of 10 coins per payline. After the slot machine, the next highest paying symbol is the keyring followed by the poker chips and the playing cards. The final two themed symbols include the martini cocktail and the pair of red dice.
Big Vegas Wild Symbols
The lower paying symbols in the Big Vegas slot include the ever-present high card symbols from jack to ace. The Wild symbol in this game is the blue symbol with glittery white stars. This symbol can be used to substitute and replace standard game symbols to form a winning combination. The Wild shares the honour of being the highest paying symbol of the game. Finding all five Wilds across the screen will pay out 3000 coins on a max bet.
The Big Vegas slot also features directional Wilds. The symbol to look out for here is the compass. When a directional Wild appears on the reels, the compass needle will swing around and point on a direction. All the symbols that are in line with the green compass needle will then turn into Wilds. If the directional Wild is at the end of the screen and the needle points off-screen, the directional Wild will turn into a Wild itself.
Free Spins with Added Locked Wilds
The free games lounge symbol in Big Vegas slot is the only symbol that can trigger the free spins bonus round. To trigger the free spins round, players must land the free games symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time. Once triggered, players will be rewarded with five free spins where every win comes with a 3x multiplier. During the free spins bonus round, the directional Wilds are back in action. This time wherever the needle points, locked Wilds will appear on the reels.
These locked Wild symbols will stay in place for the duration of the free spins round. The actual compass directional Wild will then turn into a standard Wild symbol to accompany the locked Wilds. This makes the free spins round particularly lucrative with many chances to create big winning combinations.
