Vegas Hot 81 Slot
Well it would seem that Vegas Hot 81 has the whole Las Vegas aesthetic down to a tee – would you just look at those reels, they’re lit up brighter than a Christmas tree! Coupled with the groovy music, this slot machine is shaping up to be a neon blast from the past, a past where the 80s reigned supreme and never died.
This is one of the fancier titles that Wazdan has in its product list, which means you should appreciate every inch of its refined beauty. Unlike some of their games that just spin and win, this has a fluidity and grace about it; if you enjoyed Welcome to Hell 81, you’re going to get along swimmingly with this.
Using a similar sort of template, Vegas Hot 81 will magic away your wins and pop up new ones in their place, a squeaking sound erupting from the reels when this happens. It certainly makes everything a lot more exciting to watch rather than just seeing the winning reels be whisked away with a new spin.
One of the main aspects of many Wazdan games we love is the progressive jackpot that ticks away in the left hand upper corner; it can bounce around a lot, but the final sum can be quite pleasing. As it’s a randomly generated jackpot though, it can also be hugely disappointing, say about €37 worth, and so it’s down to lady luck and whether she likes you.
We tried to up our bet to see if that made a difference, but the only return we got was being 100 credits lighter; the maximum bet isn’t for those who haven’t got cash to spare. If you’ve got it by all means use it, but know that it won’t alter the payouts you receive. For those that only want to dip their toes in and try, the starting point is back at just 0.10 credits, a much more manageable amount, and one that’s more than reasonable given the 81 ways to win.
After a winning line is made, which happens a lot given the number of paylines, users can gamble their cash in a double or nothing feature. When you activate it a mini window will open with a card flashing from red suits to black in quick succession, with you needing to think fast and select the colour you think it really is. We’ve found this mini level to be extremely unforgiving, meaning we’ve never secured a win from it yet. Thankfully, you don’t have to risk your funds if you don’t want to, you can just ignore the widget and carry on spinning.
In regards to any autoplay options, they’re there, we just can’t tell you whether it asks you to pick a number or just starts rolling. This is because in the demo mode, you aren’t given the option to use the feature, a most annoying trait that Wazdan seems to apply to every demo of theirs.
Bursting with Potential
The combinations you can make are endless, so what better way to get those wins pouring in then seeing what the symbols have in store for you. As is normal with slot machines, the wild is the only icon that’ll remove other symbols at its leisure, however in Vegas Hot 81, it also multiples wins. How much it does this by depends on how many wilds you find.
As for the highest payout of the table, that also comes from the wild, a small prize of just 20 credits, with the lit up 7s the next highest at 16 coins. Going off of this, it’s safe to assume that you won’t make a lot of money from this slot machine, even despite all the winlines. That’s okay though, there’s slot machines for big bucks if that’s what you seek.
Every single one of the matches made needs to be either a three or a four, with the wild being the only exception to the rule and having a minimum match of four. This actually makes finding wins a lot easier than having to match five in more modern games, however in those games you usually get more cash. It’s a payoff you have to be willing to make – sacrifice the euros for a simplistic interface, or do away with humble designs and fight to the death for money.
