Just Vegas Slots

Just-VegasJust Vegas is a Cryptologic design with a theme that revolves around the world’s most fun and infamous city, Las Vegas. There are more than a few characters in Las Vegas that are worthy of their own slot machine, so it’s great to see the entire city under the spotlight. It’s a colorful design, with neon lights everywhere, with casinos on both sides of the screen, beautiful ladies and successful gamblers enjoying themselves. If you’ve been to Vegas in the past, you will love this game.

There are 5 reels in Just Vegas, but a lot more paylines than you might be used to. That’s because it uses the ways to win system, with 243 paylines total, all activated during each round. A $20,000 potential top prize is one of the main attractions in Just Vegas, just as you can get wild symbols, free spins and scatters.

Features of Just Vegas

Even though it’s a game that revolves around the capital of gambling, its features are not exactly advanced and there aren’t a lot of them around either. You will get the occasional scatter or wild symbol, plus access to free spins, but that’s it.

The Vegas wheel of fortune, with the appearance of a gold coin with gems encrusted all around, is the substitute symbol that you can rely on for help in getting additional combinations started. It’s a wild feature that you can get on three reels out of five (2nd to 4th). You don’t get any prizes from this symbol, but at least you can count on it to make the game slightly more profitable. A wild is not capable of substituting for scatter symbols.

The Just Vegas logo is one of the two feature symbols, the scatter to be more precise. In typical scatter fashion, it both gives you a bonus game and a cash prize. In both cases, you need a minimum of three logos scattered in the game, and you will get paid. The cash payouts can reach a value of 50x the triggering bet.

Free Games Feature

The same three or more scatters that will give you a prize, will also trigger the free games feature. There are three different features you can pick from, each one with its own advantages. All the features can be retriggered, with the same 3+ scattered logos.

The Asian Casino is a choice that will get you 10 free spins, plus an extra stacked wild that can appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels.

Egyptian Casino is the second option, and it’s a bit more generous with the free spins. You get 15 rounds here, plus the regular wild is capable of substituting for scatter symbols as well, not just for regular icons.

Finally, there is the Roman Casino option. You only get 5 spins for free in it, but the multiplier is at 5x, so prizes tend to be very good.


Betting options and jackpots

Given as this is a slot with ways to win instead of paylines, you don’t get to place a wager on each one of the 243 chances to win. Instead, you use 25 coins to activate all the chances to win available, without being able to select fewer. You are allowed to pick a denomination in the range of $0.01 to $20, with the total range being $0.25 to $500.

The prize is decent at $20,000 (1000 coins), but not extraordinary. However, with 243 chances to win on the table, a prize of that value is not bad at all.

Design and symbols

Las Vegas is all about lights, gambling, having fun, booze and beautiful women. Just Vegas celebrates Sin City for what it is, and it does it quite well. The only thing detracting from the experience would be the playing card icons, but I suppose they are almost classics by now, and they are more at home in this slot than in most of the others.

Symbols: Vegas Wheel (wild), Logo (scatter, 50x the wager), Man in Suit (1,000x), Blonde Woman (750x), Rich Guy with Private Jet (750x), Cash Stack (500x), Ace (500x), King (150x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), Ten (100x) and Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

For a slot that tries to bring the spirit of Las Vegas on its reels, Just Vegas does a pretty good job. There is plenty of room for improvement, but since it has ways to win, and plenty of them, you should be getting paid quite often.

This Just Vegas slot is offered by all online casinos with Cryptologic software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
