Viva Las Vegas is a 5-reel 20-line slot machine game based on a Las Vegas theme. The game features wild symbols, an in-reel Mini-Reel bonus and a wheel bonus where the player can choose to play for free spins or for cash prizes.
How To Play
In-Reel Mini-Reel Bonus
Minimum Stake, Maximum Stake & Maximum Payouts
Press the “Stake Up” and “Stake Down” buttons to choose a total stake between 20p and £100. This is split equally on each of the 20 lines.
This game is fixed to always be 20 lines.
The total amount you have staked will be shown in the “CHANGE STAKE” box at the bottom of the screen.
Click on the “Paytable” button to view the paytable, which shows the potential winnings for each reel combination, scatters, bonuses etc.
How to Play
Press the SPIN button to start the game (or press the Spacebar on your keyboard).
The reels will spin and eventually stop at random.
If the combination of symbols appearing on the reels forms a line of 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols (starting from the left) on one of the win lines in play, then you win. Any winning lines you have will be highlighted and your winnings will be credited to your account balance.
The summary of what symbols made up the currently highlighted winline and what that win was worth is shown in the message bar at the bottom.
In-Reel Mini-Reel Bonus
The In-Reel Mini-Reel Bonus game is a special scatter bonus win triggered by getting 3 Slot Machine Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
There is no win attached to the Slot Machine scatter symbols – only entry to the bonus game, which itself guarantees a win.
The 3 Mini slot machines will move to the middle of the screen and then each one will spin and then stop to reveal the result.
Getting three symbols the same on a mini-reel awards a prize (exact amount depends on the type of symbol and the total stake).
Each Mini-reel will continue to spin and award extra prizes until it does not show a win, it will then stop.
After all 3 Mini-reels have stopped then the total prize amount will be shown and added to the balance.
Wheel Bonus Round
Getting 3 or more of the Wheel Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels will start the Wheel bonus.
Here you get a choice of either playing for Freespins or playing for cash.
Playing For Cash
If you select to play for cash then the wheel will show different multiplier values and the wheel will spin and then stop on one of the values and then award that amount multiplied by the total stake.
The wheel will then spin again and keep awarding extra prizes until it stops on the Collect section.
Once the wheel stops on Collect it will add up all the winnings and show the total amount won and add that to the balance.
The more Wheel symbols there were on the reels to get into the bonus round then the higher the multipliers on the wheel will be.
Playing For Freespins
For this the wheel works in the same way as playing for cash except that it has different numbers of Freespins shown on the reels instead.
Each time the wheel stops it adds on the number of Freespins on the section it stopped on.
The wheel will then spin again and keep awarding extra Freespins until it stops on the Collect section. At this point the game will start the Freespins.
No player interaction is required at all for the Freespins – they just continue to play out until all the spins have been used.
Freespins use a different reel set to the standard reels, meaning it is not possible to get to the bonus round or in-reel Mini-reel bonus while in Freespins.
The number of Wheel Symbols that were on the reels to trigger the Wheel Bonus affects the win multipliers used in Freespins. If there were 3 symbols then wins are not multiplied and they are the same as normal wins, if there were 4 symbols then all wins in the Freespins are multiplied by 3. If there were 5 wheel symbols then all wins will be multiplied by 10. This x3 or x10 will be shown at the top of the screen.
At the end of Freespins all wins will be added together and added to the balance.
Getting 3 or more Chip symbols on a win line will award a Chips win.
Each of the Chip symbols will award a random prize. There is no prize for getting the chip win itself – just the prizes awarded on each of the symbols.
These prizes will be added together and then added to the balance.
A wild symbol can be used to help form a chips win however the wild symbol will not award a prize itself, only the chip symbols will (so having a wild symbol and 2 Chip symbols will count as a chip win but only the 2 chip symbols will have prizes on them).
The Viva Las Vegas Logo symbol is always Wild and can substitute for any other symbol except for scatter symbols (Slot Machine symbol or Wheel Bonus symbol).
Getting 2 or more Logo symbols on a payline (starting from the left reel) will award a win itself.
If more than one win can be awarded on the same line (for example 3 wilds in a row or those wilds counting as a different symbol to make 4 symbols in a row) then only the highest paying win will be counted. If there are two wins paying equal amounts then the wild win is awarded (unless there is a chips win, then that is used instead).
By selecting ‘Auto Play’ you can choose to place up to 25 bets automatically, one after the other. Select your stake per line as normal then press the ‘Auto Play’ button to select the number of ‘Auto Play’ bets you want before clicking the ‘SPIN’ button.
Auto Play will turn off if you get into either of the bonus rounds.
You can stop Auto Play from continuing onto the next spin by clicking ‘STOP’ at the bottom of the screen between goes as shown here:
