At first glance one of the characters of this slot reminded me of the dentist from the film “Hangover”, and after reading more about it this theme is indeed inspired in the characters from that film. Weekend in Vegas Slots is a 3D slot with some very sleek graphics, something Betsoft the game developer, handles very well. 5 reel slot with 243 pay-lines, two bonus games (free spins and a video bonus round) and some unique features were the player can decide when to stop the reel and to double his winnings. The maximum credits a player can win is 1,210,500.
In terms of gameplay Weekend in Vegas is a fun slot at first. Getting to know the characters and triggering the bonus round is places to player inside the story for a while. The soundtrack is no biggy, it gets tiring and it does not fit with the scenes. In terms of winning percentage user reviews are mixed, there is a good chance to make big money with the bonus rounds. No progressive jackpot on this one but not needed, there is a roulette feature at the end of the free spins.
One thing that Betsoft does best than its competitors is a great story line with amazing graphics. This makes Betsoft slots fun to play if not the most rewarding in terms of payouts. Many of the symbols when triggered showcase a short 3D video, like the cop car or any of the 3 characters.
Aside from the ingenious story line that recreates some of the funny happenings from Hangover and three characters of its characters, the slot design in general is very provocative. Around the reel the three characters sit around and perform some curious actions. Getting the three together is key for the bonus round, but plenty of opportunities to make money from different combinations, especially when players can decide where to stop the reel. This aspects of the slot game gives a small skill advantage and it is welcomed since it makes the game more engaging.
After each play there is a double or nothing option, play the coin toss and if you win your winnings are doubled. All of these features makes Weekend in Vegas a very complete slot game.
