The zombie genre has been extremely popular the last years. Novels, cinema, video games and TV have all featured titles inspired by this theme. Microgaming brings zombies into the world of slots with their latest game called Lost Vegas. The game launched on the 5 of October 2016 available on PC and mobile devices in most of the major online casinos such as LeoVegas, Rizk or Unibet.
Lost Vegas is a 5 reels and 243 paylines slot with a zombie inspired theme. The background shows a dark street of a post apocalyptic Las Vegas. The higher value symbols on the reels are all theme related and feature, depending on the mode, either zombies or survivors fighting off zombies. The lower value symbols are represented by the usual playing card signs (10, J, Q, K and A). The scatter symbol is a biohazard symbol. The wild symbols is the game’s logo and it can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
As mentioned the game has 2 base game modes: Survival Mode and Zombie Mode. The player can switch between modes by clicking the icon on the top right corner of the screen.
The slot has 2 randomly activated features which are similar on both modes.
- The Zombie Fist of Cash feature is triggered randomly after a non wing spin. A zombie hand will appear pop out and award a certain cash price.
- The Blackout feature is also randomly triggered after a non winning spin. The reels will be scanned with the high value symbols being highlighted. Each of the highlighted symbols will award a certain cash prize. In addition, if even 1 scatter symbols is landed when the random feature is triggered, that scatter will activate the free spins feature.
Lost Vegas has a free spins feature which is triggered by landing 3 scatter symbols anywhere in view. Or by having 1 scatter symbols on the reels during the Blackout random feature.
The free spins feature plays differently depending on which mode the game is being played.
- Free spins on Survivor mode - During this feature the game will play as a rolling reels type of slot. But instead of the winning combo symbols disappearing, on this feature the lower value symbols will be taken away. Each symbol taken away will award a certain cash prize. When a symbol is taken away a new symbol will fall in its place. If any or more of the new symbols are low value, they in turn will be also taken away and replaced with new ones. This feature will continue until no more low level symbols are visible on the reels. When the feature has ended the player will get all the cash prizes of the symbols taken away plus the payout from any possible winning combo made, at the end, by the remaining high value symbols.
- Free spins on Zombie mode - During this feature all higher value symbols can appear stacked on the reels. Landing a stacked symbol that covers the entire reel will Infect that particular reel. Infected reels can turn single wild symbols into stacked wilds. The free spins will continue until all 5 reels have been infected or when 50 free spins in total have been played.
