Playtech Neon Life Video Slot Review

Neon Life: Demo

The Las Vegas strip has never looked as classy as it appears in Neon Life, a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot powered by Playtech. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet, this trip to Sin City comes with exploding reels and a bonus feature where you can win 25 free spins with dynamic multipliers of up to 5x. Play from between 25p and £10 per spin.

Neon Life has a minimalist and understated look – set against the backdrop of the hotels and casinos of the Las Vegas Strip, the reels include neon versions of a flamingo, cocktail glass, open top car, lady’s legs and a royal flush poker hand. Even the lower value playing cards look supremely classy. There’s also a wild on reels 2, 3 and 4.

The game is played using a 243 ways to win game engine where winning combinations are formed when the same symbol lands on successive reels. It also comes with Exploding Reels and Accumulated Wins feature. Winning symbols are blasted off the reels and replaced by the symbols above to create new combinations. These continue until there’s no winning combo on view.

Land 5 or more scatters (easier than it sounds with the Exploding Reels) to trigger the Free Games feature and with it up to 25 free spins, complete with a dynamic multiplier. After 2 successive Exploding Reel wins, the multiplier will increase by 1, up to a maximum of 5x. It reverts back to 1x after the last collapsing win.

The variance in Neon Life is in the medium range – the exploding reels help things along in the base but it’s the free spins round, with the potential 5x multiplier, that offers the best chances of a decent return. We found the free spins to be a bit hit and miss, pocketing virtually nothing on some spins but hitting big on others.

Boasting a vintage 1950s look and a classy, jazzy soundtrack, Las Vegas has rarely looked so impressive. The features are limited but are solid enough making Neon Life not just a beautiful but also an entertaining video slot. I suggest you take a look at Playtech’s more bonus feature-rich titles such as Age of the Gods and Wild Wishes.
