Microgaming previews zombie-themed slot

29 September 2016
(PRESS RELEASE) -- In Microgaming's latest online slot, Lost Vegas, players can pick their side, Zombie or Survivor, as they immerse themselves in the famed city of Las Vegas in the aftermath of a Zombie apocalypse!
In this 243 ways-to-win slot, the streets of Vegas are bare, casinos are deserted and the infected lurk in the shadows. Players decide whether they play as one of the hardened human Survivors or the hungry Zombie horde, and they can switch sides at any time. Who will win?
The game is full of infectious features, including the Zombie Fist of Cash punching out onto the screen, and a blackout bonus which scans the reels for Zombies or Survivors. Both award cash prizes and are triggered randomly in the base game.
The free spins feature is triggered when three or more scatter symbols appear on the reels or if one scatter symbol lands on the reels during the Blackout Bonus. If the player joins the resourceful Survivors, working alongside a fiery bartender, a no nonsense mobster and a baseball wielding club girl, the free spins comprise an innovative Stash feature. Every low symbol that lands on the screen is snatched off the reels, revealing cash prizes. Each low symbol removed increases the Survivor's win potential; free spins continue until all low symbols have been stashed.
In Zombie mode, together with the undead Elvis impersonator and a couple of newly-deads, free spins are awarded with a new Infection feature. A full Zombie symbol stack landing on the reel leads to infection, and the stacked symbol remains until all five reels are infected. Up to 50 free spins are on offer.
"Lost Vegas is a perfectly timed game for Halloween," says Neill Whyte, Commercial Director at Microgaming. "This slot brings so much entertainment to gameplay, from being able to pick a side and play as a Survivor or Zombie, to the never-seen-before features in the free spin rounds. We are really excited to see this slot launch, and I'm sure that the game will not only be popular upon release, but will be a long-term favorite with players."
Lost Vegas launches on desktop and mobile to Microgaming and Quickfire operators on Wednesday, 5 October 2016.
Zombies and Survivors will be taking over the Microgaming Bar at EiG, Berlin, 18 – 20 October 2016. Will you survive?
