After winning the jackpot - or losing or shirts - it's back on board the cruise ship to set sail for somewhere new!
Overview: Where better to start the holiday of a lifetime than good old Vegas? Betsoft's 3D slot Weekend in Vegas slot features three hapless characters heading out for a trip to Vegas in a mission to win a fortune!
This is a 243 Ways game and features 5 reels set against a glitzy Vegas background. Symbols depict 3 different Vegas gamblers, a Vegas dancer, Vegas sign, police car and playing card symbols.
Features in the game include scatters, a Money Wheel,gamble feature, bonus game and Wilds that come with a 2x multiplier.
The Vegas sign acts as the Wild and substitutes for all other symbols except scatters.
The police car symbol is the game's scatter symbol. Landing 3 or more these triggers free spins, up to 20 in total if you can land 5 scatters. All wins in the free spins features are doubled.
After your free spins you get a shot at the Money Wheel feature. Spin the wheel and if you land on a green arrow you'll move into the next reel of the wheel. The further in you can move the higher your bonus prize.
Winning 2 - 4 reels filled with one character earns you an instant respin. Winning 3 or more reels filled with the same character triggers the bonus round where your winning character hits the Vegas strip.
Each character brings their own unique play style to the bonus round: Loony Larry loves high risk play and sometimes wins big (when he's not losing!), Balanced Ben opts to play it fairly safe for solid wins and Cautious Chris takes the lowest risks of all but will always win.
After any win in the base game you can opt to gamble to double up your win by correctly guessing the toss of a coin.
