Sin City Nights Slot
Sin City Nights is a 5-reel, fixed 25-pay line online slot from Betsoft. This Christmas 2016 release from the Malta-based company celebrates all that is good and great about Las Vegas once the sun has gone down and the more exotic aspects of Vegas night life emerge. There's a great deal of neon, and an exotic dancer who wears hardly anything whatsoever (this applies to both Las Vegas and this slot, of course).
This is also a 'cascading' slot rather than a 'rolling reels' slot as is the norm. If you've played NetEnt's Gonzo's Quest or Microgaming's Jungle Jim then you'll be familiar with this way of playing. Symbols clear completely from the board every time you hit the spin button, and fifteen new symbols (in three rows of five) fall from above to replace them. Any winning symbols then explode to create gaps, and existing symbols and new symbols tumble down to replace them. New wins are of course possible, resulting in 'cascading wins'. Each cascading win receives a new multiplier, from the base level of 1x to 2x, and so on. Once the cascading wins cease, the multiplier is reset to 1x.
The neon-based symbols in this game are playing card values jack, queen, king and ace, plus bonus symbols and a cherry, liberty bell and lucky (we hope) number seven. There are twenty-five pay lines and that is a fixed number. You can select your coin size from 0.02 to 1.00, and your bet level from one to five. Your final wager-per-spin is your coin size multiplied by your bet level multiplied by twenty-five. When you are ready to get sinning, hit the sin … er … spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest payout in this game is for three jacks, which will win you three coins. The highest is for five lucky sevens, which will win you two and a half thousand coins. That sure is lucky!
In the base game, that cascading wins multiplier mentioned above rises through four levels – x1, x2, x3 and x5. In free spins though, the multiplier increases three-fold: x3, x6, x9 and x15.
You need to watch out for 'Free Spins' symbols. If you land three free spins symbols anywhere on pay line (including wilds) then you trigger free spins. Note that free spins icons only appear on the first three reels.
The wild symbol in this game subsitutes for ALL other symbols.
You have the potential to 'double up' any win. You can gamble all or half of any win on the toss of a coin. Guess correctly and your wager is doubled, but get it wrong and your wager vamooshes!
This game both looks and plays great, and that payout percentage of ninety-seven percent is pretty spectacular. However, these impressive features are at the expense of Betsoft's usual levels of graphical mastery and interaction. When you take away the neon gloss this is just a standard 'cascading reels' slot. We say 'just', however we do approve of 'cascading reels' online slots a great deal, as they become genuining thrilling and potentially profitable when the cascading wins keep on coming. Not one of Betsoft's very best, but certainly worthy of your attention.
