Neon City Casino slot review
Understated slots developer Incredible Technologies might be an established brand name on the land-based circuit but they have gone about their business in a slightly quieter manner in the online market. Their slots portfolio includes titles such as the hidden gem that is King of Bling and the female-orientated Girls Day Out. Added to that crop is Neon City Casino and as the name suggests there is a feel of Vegas about this slot.
On the Reels...
This Neon City Casino slot is a 5 reel, 45 payline slot that will take you on a trip down nostalgia lane (if you're old enough to remember!) when neon lights adorned the casino front entrances of Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Symbols on the reels include a Neon City Casino logo, dealer, coins, showgirl, chips, jackpot prize car, cashier, waitress, dice, and a slot machine. Basically, every stereotypical item you could associate with casino gaming from back in the 1970s and 1980s!
The Wild is Wild!
The Wild symbol acts as the Wild and this symbol substitutes for all other symbols, except for the Bonus and Free Spins symbols, across the reels to complete any potential winning combinations that can be triggered.
Pick Your Table Game
There is a lot to get involved in on this slot so we shall start with the bonus features. If you hit three tables games Scatters across the reels then you will trigger the Table Games Bonus. The Scatters can only be found on reels 1, 3, and 5. If you manage to trigger this bonus feature you will be taken to a screen where you must select one of the three table games on offer.
Earn the Right Hand in 7 Card Stud
If you opt for the 7 Card Stud Bonus then you will have to pick 7 cards from a selection of down-facing 52 cards. The game will then select your best 5 card hand. If you manage to form a hand of at least a pair then you advance to the next round. You will have the chance to progress through three rounds with each round offering larger prizes the further you progress. The larger the hand you have in each round, the larger your prize. If you fail to make a hand then you will exit the bonus feature with a consolation prize.
Guess Where the Roulette Ball Lands
If you decide to go for the Roulette Bonus then you will have to pick one of the 44 potential areas to bet on the roulette wheel. This could be an odd or even number, red or black number, 1-12 number, 13-24 number, 25-36 number etc. You will have three attempts to guess where the ball will land correctly. If you do not guess correctly on all three attempts then you will win a consolation prize.
Beat the Dealer in Blackjack
If you choose the Blackjack Bonus, you will find yourself up against the computer taking on the role of the dealer. You will progress through four rounds with the chance to beat the dealer and hit 21 in all four rounds. If you fail to do so then you will receive a consolation prize.
Earn 8 Silver Free Spins
There is then the free spins bonus round and this is split into two different levels. The first free spins bonus round is triggered if you hit three Silver Free Spins symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5. If this happens, you will earn 8 silver free spins. You will be taken to a special set of reels for these free spins that include Gold Free Spins symbols instead of Silver Free Spins symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5.
Win at Least 6 Gold Free Spins
If you manage to hit three Gold Free Spins symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 then you will trigger 6 gold free spins. These will see the reels transform with the potential to hit bigger wins. In an added bonus, any silver free spins you have remaining will then be transformed into gold free spins as well.
Neon City Casino is unlike many other slots out there. It has a similar feel to Bally's Big Vegas slot and also has a theme that is not too detached from IGT's Vegas, Baby! if you consider the “cheese factor” of the slot. There is a lot going on in this slot and the question could be asked if Incredible Technologies have got too much going on. I really lost track of what I was aiming to hit and the wins are not the biggest. However, the action is frantic and for a developer that does not toot its own horn very much this could turn out to be another slot that slips under the radar. I can recommend giving it a try. Will it be the slot you've been looking for? I doubt it. You'll get a few hours of fun from it at the very least.
