Taking the USA’s most famous gaming destination as its theme, Bally Technologies’ Big Vegas online slot features symbols that encapsulate the popular image of Sin City.
Not reliant on image, animation, and its five reels and 40 paylines alone, the game also includes bonus symbols such as a Scatter and directional Wild symbols. Both of these play an integral role in the game; one of them being responsible for triggering the game’s free spins round.
Its wide betting rage begins at a minimum of 0.01 per line, and reaches a maximum bet of 10.00 per line. The lines are not fixed, which means that players are responsible for determining the number of paylines they wish to activate.
Setting the value of the coins and selecting the number of paylines are done using the relevant controls on the interface like players do in Canadian online casino slots. Players’ settings can be changed at any point in between spins.
Big Vegas Reel Symbols
The Big Vegas reel symbols are images that should be instantly recognisable to anyone who has even a passing familiarity with gaming in land-based casinos.
Found on the reels of this online slot are a top-paying fruit machine symbol, as well as symbols depicting gaming chips, dice, playing cards, high roller suite keys, cocktails, a roulette wheel, a wad of cash, a Free Games Lounge sign, a blue Wild symbol, and 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace symbols.
Of these, the Free Games Lounge sign is the Scatter symbol, the blue Wild a standard Wild symbol, and the roulette wheel becomes the directional Wild.
Big Vegas Wild Symbols
At their most basic, the different Wild symbols on the Big Vegas reels do what all Wild symbols do. That is, they can substitute for other reel symbols to help form winning combinations. However, like most Wilds, those in this game cannot substitute for the Scatter symbol.
When the roulette wheel lands on the second or fourth reel, it will start spinning, and turn into a directional Wild. When it stops, all symbols in the vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line marked by the directional Wild’s pointer will become additional Wild symbols.
The purple Wild is only active in the free spins round, and not in the base game. The directional Wild is only active on the third reel during the free spins round.
Big Vegas Scatter and Free Spins
The Big Vegas online slots free spins round will be triggered if players manage to land three or more Free Games Lounge Scatter symbols on the second, third, and fourth reels.
If players do manage to trigger the round, they will receive five free spins. The free spins cannot be re-triggered during the round. However, if players land the purple Wild on the reels during the round, it acts as a sticky Wild, and remains firmly in place for the rest of the free spins.
Any wins made by players during the free spins round will be tripled by a 3x multiplier. In addition to triggering the free spins round, the landing of three or more Scatters also brings a payout of three times the player’s total bet.
