All the Fun of Sin City on the Reels of a Pokie

All aspects of Vegas are covered in this IGT designed pokie. Slots, roulette, playing cards, poker chips and dice represent the gambling side of the city, while a VIP area and a couple celebrating with champagne represent the nightlife and the entertainment. The classic seven symbol appears too, in green, purple and orange varieties, giving a reference to traditional pokies.
Main features that make this game entertaining;
The action is thick and fast in Vegas Nights, where big prizes and a host of bonus features are among its many highlights.

Land the maximum five in a row and you’ll win the top paying Maxi Jackpot!
The wild symbol shows a pokie with four reels, each reel featuring one letter of the word ‘Wild’. This symbol will substitute for any other in the game apart from the bonus symbols, ensuring bigger and better winning chances.

You’ll now have the opportunity to play mini roulette on the reels, with up to three spins of the reel (you’ll have less than three spins if you lose your money before that!).
The second of the bonus features on the Vegas Nights pokies is a free spins feature. This is activated by landing the poker chip symbol three times or more across the five reels. There are instant wins of 2x, 5x and 10x your stake for activating with 3, 4 or 5 chips.
