It’s time to visit the spiritual home of global gaming and we don’t mean Doncaster races. Big Vegas is of course a tribute to Las Vegas, the casino resort in the Nevada desert which everyone should visit at least once. Big Vegas is an online slot from Bally Technologies with an innovative wild feature and a funky free spins round.
Big Vegas is a five reel slot with forty fixed paylines and those reels are set above a neon-lit view of the part of the Las Vegas strip. Everything’s glitzy here including many of the symbol on the reels.
The main symbols are a range of Vegas-themed items including dice, a cocktail, a winning poker hand, a pile of poker chips, the key to a high roller’s suite and a slot machine. J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
Special symbols include a ‘Free Games Lounge’ scatter, blue and purple wilds and a directional wild symbol.
This is a feature we like and the symbol involved is a little roulette wheel with a green pointer on the outside which only appears on reels two and four. Land it anywhere on the reels during the base game or free spins and it will spin, resulting in the pointer indicating a particular direction – horizontal, vertical or diagonal. Every symbol in that direction will now become wild and the prizes will be evaluated.
If the pointer just points off the reels the roulette wheel will become wild.
The Free Games Lounger scatter symbols appears only on reels two, three and four and if you can land three in view you will trigger five free spins with a 3x multiplier for any wins.
The directional wild is active during this round and an extra purple wild also makes an appearance. Land this and it will stay locked in place until the spins are over. Some big wins are available here if you can land a combination of directional and purple wilds.
The spins cannot be re-triggered.
We like this slot – the directional wilds make a big difference to what could be a fairly run-of-the-mill game and the sound effects are casino-like. Bally know how to make a compelling game, even if the free spins are a little hard to hit.
