It's all about unique bonus features in prehistoric-themed slot 'Rock Vegas'.
It’s known that gambling is one of the oldest human social activities, dating thousands of years BCE. So, who's to say it didn’t exist long before, in the prehistoric era? This is exactly the premise Pragmatic Play is exploring in its new Rock Vegas slot with a huge winning potential of up to 10,000x the bet.
Set in a steamy prehistoric jungle, the 5x3 grid with 20 fixed lines is guarded by the animated caveman found on the left side of the screen, who is the most valuable paying symbol at the same time. Although it comes with a cartoonish and a bit comical design, this is a game with serious potential, very high volatility, and more than a solid RTP of 96.64%.
Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, Yossi Barzely, stated:
“Rock Vegas™ provides players with a thoroughly exciting experience, as well as a unique selection of bonus features that complement each other nicely. The prehistoric theme, in conjunction with the modern reels and engaging bonus features, stays true to our ethos of creating fantastic games and we can’t wait to see how our players respond!”
Rocky Vegas is a wild game, even though ironically doesn’t have any Wild symbols. When it comes to special symbols, the Scatter represented as a rock with a bonus sign is the one with the greatest power. When 3 of them land together, this activates the Mega Hold and Spin feature.
Once activated, the feature replaces the reel setup of the base game with a new 10x10 grid, containing only blue, green, yellow, pink, and red rock symbols or blank spaces.
What type of rocks will appear depends on the number of triggering Scatters:
- 3 Scatters - all rocks appear
- 4 Scatters - blue rocks with the lowest value are removed
- 5 Scatters - green and blue rocks are removed
The bonus round starts with 3 respins and resets every time when rocks land, staying locked in place. Clusters of 2x2 or 3x3 matching rock symbols not only merge to create create a large rock but also gain a random multiplier of 5x to 10x or 35x to 100x respectively.
In addition, rock symbols can land with a little key icon attached on top of them. These key icons are collected on a trail beside the grid. At set intervals, keys unlock chests to award a random multiplier of up to 500x to one of the rocks, a cash prize of up to 500x the bet, 4 to 10 keys added to the trail, a random general multiplier of up to 100x or one respin.
Those who make it to the end of the trial and hit Mystery Multiplier get a random number from 2x to 100x - it is collected and multiplied by the general multiplier gotten so far. The end of a trial is not the end of the bonus game. When the trail is finished, it starts from the beginning until the bonus feature ends when there are no more respins or the screen is filled by rock symbols.
Rocky Vegas slot features a prehistoric theme, but there’s nothing old when it comes to its gameplay. It is fun, fresh and potentially very rewarding as the max win goes all the way up to 10,000x the stake. It is yet another amazing addition to the Pragmatic Play’s portfolio of premium titles released shortly after Gold Party, Wild Depths and Magician’s Secrets.
