In 2016, disaster struck the gambler’s mecca! A zombie virus ravaged the streets of Las Vegas, leaving the famous strip crawling with brain-eating monsters. This dark world is the basis of Lost Vegas, Microgaming’s zombie-themed slot. Hole up in one of the casinos with the survivors, or roam the streets to hunt them down! Both sides offer their own free spins round, as well as unique artwork that depicts humans or zombies. Which side will you pick? Keep reading this review to find out which side Labslots is on!
No matter which side you pick, you are in for a treat when it comes to visuals! Symbol animations are top notch for both humans and zombies. You can see just how on edge the survivors are, and how mindlessly ruthless the monsters have become. The background images are very detailed, depicting the drab and horrifying circumstances quite well. No background animations, but we are willing to forgive that. Microgaming has a different background and icon designs for both modes! Furthermore, each special feature also comes with a different background image. This means five total backgrounds, each one separated by a cool screen transition.

Lost Vegas Slot: How to Win
Lost Vegas slot is played on a five-reel board with 243 ways to win. This method forgoes a traditional payline setup, which lowers the requirements for scoring a win. You only need three or more matching symbols in adjacent positions. As long as all winning combinations start with the leftmost reel, the icons will grant their prize! No need to memorize complicated lines across the reels. All the key controls are found beneath the reels. Using them, you can check how much money you have, how much you bet, set up Auto Play and spin the reels. In the upper right corner, you can open a help menu and turn sound on or off. Players can adjust their wagers between CAD$0.30 and CAD$45 per spin.
Symbol designs are where this Microgaming release really impressed us. Depending on which mode you pick, you will have either survivors or zombies on the screen. This is not just a palette swap, either. Both characters look distinct, and have separate animations that play when they win. We have to say, we prefer the zombies. They have a married couple, a cabaret dancer, a nurse, a tourist and Elvis Presley! It is a colourful cast, which is far more memorable than the survivors are. Nothing wrong with their artwork, but you simply cannot beat zombie Elvis Presley. The one complaint we have in this field is that playing card royal designs do not change between modes. Seeing them zombified would have gone a long way to build immersion!
Lost Vegas Slot Bonus Rounds
Collect three or more Scatters to win a free spins round. Which one you receive depends on the mode you selected when you start the game. You cannot swap after you activate the bonus. However, you can freely swap at any time in the base game by clicking a button.
- Survivors: Any playing card royals that appear on the board are stashed away. These removed icons add a set cash value to your stash. Wins are awarded twice during this bonus: before and after the royals are stashed. Free spins end when the number in the upper left corner reaches zero. When that happens, the stash prize is granted to the player.
- Zombies: Each free spin brings a chance for a stacked Zombie to infect a reel. These stacked zombies can infect single Wilds, transforming them into stacked Wilds. Free spins keep being played until all reels are infected. If you can hold off the infection until the 50th free spin, you win a bonus prize, and the special feature ends.
Blackout bonus randomly activates during normal gameplay. While active, all high value symbols award cash prizes without having to form winning combinations. Only a single Scatter is required to trigger free spins during this special feature. It can activate during both game modes, on any non-winning spin.
Lost Vegas Slot Game: The Verdict
We had a blast playing Lost Vegas! This terrific online slot game has it all. Awesome graphics, multiple modes, and several fun special features! Personally, we would go with the zombies. Their bonus is more fun, and they have Elvis Presley on their side. Regardless of your pick, you will get a fantastic medium variance game with a maximum win of 2155x your total stake. At the end of the day, Microgaming’s release adheres to the most basic wisdom of our zombified singer. ‘Money honey, if you want to get along with me’.
