How Rock Vegas works
Produced by the development studio Reel Kingdom and the provider Pragmatic Play, this new slot "Rock Vegas" offers a mix between the money games with the word "Vegas" and its universe, that is to say the prehistory with the word "Rock". For the beginning of the year 2022, Pragmatic Play tries to offer a very classic slot machine, but with a bonus feature that is very different from what we usually find.
Lucky7Bonus takes a closer look at the Rock Vegas slot through its symbols and associated payouts, the number of paylines, how the bonus works and how to unlock it, and then we finish with our general opinion on Pragmatic Play's latest slot: a disappointment or a success?
The Rock Vegas slot is very colorful with its flashy symbols and lush jungle. The sound ambiance is not especially original, but it fits this theme that does not take itself seriously. Regarding the features, the game grid is composed of 5 reels and 3 lines, which is very classic.
Volatility is very high in Rock Vegas slot, as players can win up to 10,000 times their initial bet. The theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.64%, which is well above the general average. Bets range from 20 cents to 100 Euros at Lucky7Bonus partner casinos.
Rock Vegas symbols
There are many symbols to be found in Pragmatic Play's Rock Vegas slot. First of all, count on the Scatters symbols to unlock the bonus feature, which is the focus of the slot. Secondly, the 9 symbols in the base game will allow you to make a few wins, but don't expect to get anywhere near the jackpot with them!
The premium symbols are much more lucrative when there are several of them, however their rate of appearance is lower than the smaller symbols. You will find: the prehistoric man, the white tiger, the raptor and the mammoth. The best of these symbols can earn you up to 37.5 times your initial bet.
Next to that are the classic common symbols, represented by the symbols of a card game: Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10. These symbols will often be present on the game grid, however the associated payouts will be lower than the premium symbols. For example, the Ace only pays a maximum of 6.25 times the original bet.
The screen below shows all the symbols present in the Rock Vegas base game with their associated payouts for a €1 bet.
There are more symbols in the Rock Vegas slot, but only in the bonus part of the slot. In fact, as we will see below in this Rock Vegas review, new symbols represented as colored gems will be present on the bonus game grid.
The image below represents the symbols of the bonus feature and the associated winnings for a starting bet of €1.
Note the absence of a wild symbol in the Rock Vegas slot machine, which is quite a negative point, luck will have to be on your side to make big wins with the 9 symbols in the base game.
The different connections in Rock Vegas
There are several connections available in the Rock Vegas slot and they will be different on the base game and on the bonus feature. First of all, the base game is quite classic with 5 reels and 3 lines for a total of 20 paylines. At least 3 of the same symbols on the first three reels from the left are required for a connection to occur.
The connections are different during the bonus game. In fact, the game grid will be much larger with 10 reels and 10 lines. The gems will simply have to be side by side to connect.
How the Rock Vegas Bonus Works
The Rock Vegas bonus is the feature that will allow you to hit the jackpot! First, get the 3 Scatters on the base game grid to trigger the free spins. As you can see from the screen below, you don't get a fixed number of free spins, as the bonus is a little different from what we're used to seeing.
By getting more Scatters than expected, you will be offered an advantage during the bonus game! Indeed, with 4 Scatters the blue gem is removed and with 5 Scatters the green gem is removed. The objective is to leave room for the most interesting gems in terms of gains.
The game grid turns into a big 10 × 10 block with empty slots and some colored gems. The player has 3 hearts at the beginning and as soon as these hearts reach zero, then the bonus game ends! Each time new gems appear, the hearts go back up to 3.
As soon as 4 gems of the same color make a 2 × 2 block, then it becomes a large gem with a random multiplier ranging from x 5 to x 10. Gem blocks can be made even larger by making a 3x3 with a random multiplier between x 35 and x 500.
From time to time, keys will fall onto the game grid. As you get more keys, you unlock chests (located on the left side of the screen) little by little. These chests can offer you different rewards:
Cash winnings of up to 500 times the stake
Random multiplier up to x 500 on one of the rocks in the grid
Random global multiplier on the final win of up to 100x
A free spin
By unlocking the "Mystery Multiplier" at the end of the line, the player wins between x2 and x100 on the overall multiplier already present in the bonus. Do you understand how to get 10,000 times your bet now?
For example, if you get 100x in the global multiplier from a chest, you can get another 100x on that multiplier by reaching the Mystery Multiplier. So you have to be very lucky!
Please note that it is unfortunately not possible to purchase the bonus directly. Count on your luck to unlock the bonus feature!
Our opinion on Rock Vegas
Pragmatic Play is not a provider that disappoints the community, at least, it is very rare. The Rock Vegas slot is a good example. The base game may seem rather empty and repetitive, all the interest is in the slot's bonus feature where the potential can be directly felt. The jackpot will push players to try their luck, 10,000 times the starting bet is not nothing.
However, Rock Vegas does not allow us to buy the bonus directly, so patience will be required! Unfortunately, the universe is not very engaging and it will be difficult to get 100% into the slot from Pragmatic Play, this is probably the only criticism we can make about this slot.
We strongly encourage you to play Rock Vegas by Pragmatic Play for free at the top of this page, or go directly to Lucky7Bonus' online casino partners to play for real money while enjoying a welcome bonus.
