Novomatic’s Viva Cabaret Xtra Choice Video Slot Review

Viva Cabaret Xtra Choice: Demo

A trip to Vegas wouldn’t be complete without taking in a show and you can do that from the comfort of your armchair in Viva Cabaret Xtra Choice. It’s a simple 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from Novomatic. Top of the bill in this show is the feature that awards up to 40 free spins where wild multipliers can boost payouts by between 7 and 77x. Play this colourful slot on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 60p and £150 per spin.

There’s a suitably colourful look to the reels in Viva Cabaret Xtra Choice. Joining the A to 9 royal values are cocktails, top hats and female nightclub singers. The best standard symbols are the famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign and the Showtime casino. Both of these award 3.56 times your bet if you see 5 across a payline.

Joining the standard symbols is the showgirl which is the wild. This substitutes for everything apart from the scatter and offers awards of 259 times your total bet if you manage to land 5 on the same payline. There isn’t a huge amount of variety on offer from this cabaret show. The main event has the potential to be very entertaining though.

To trigger the Free Games Xtra Choice feature, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the $ sign scatter on the same spin. A payout of 1.66, 14.5 or 147.5 times your bet follows. You’ll then be offered a selection of free spin and wild multiplier combinations. Opt for more free spins and lower multipliers are in play. Fewer free spins equal big potential wild multipliers. Here’s what you’ll choose from:

  • 6 free spins with all wild wins boosted by 37x or 77x
  • 8 free spins with all wild wins boosted by 27x or 57x
  • 12 free spins with all wild wins boosted by 17x or 37x
  • 20 free spins with all wild wins boosted by 7x or 17x

You’ll also have the chance to select the Mystery Xtra Choice. This jumbles up the free spins and multipliers. You could end up with the fewest free spins and the lowest wild multipliers. Get lucky though and you could end up with 20 free spins with the maximum 37x and 77x multipliers in play. You can also play the feature again if you get 3 or more scatters.

We enjoyed this virtual Vegas show. The design isn’t overly flashy but the jazzy soundtrack is rather lovely. The gameplay is very straightforward. You’ll have likely played other video slots with similar choices. Original it ain’t. It is an entertaining game though and the Free Games Xtra Choice feature can deliver some top action of more than 8,200 times your bet per free spin (with the 77x wild multiplier).

It’s not quite a must-see show but you won’t be disappointed if you get a ticket to the Viva Cabaret Xtra Choice. If you like choices in the feature, Blueprint Gaming’s Temple of Treasure MegaWays gives you 4 options with a certain amount of MegaWays.
