What is this mobile slot about?

This wheel of fortune will drive you crazy wild and you won’t quite know where you’ll end up. But then you know what they say… what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

Bally Technologies slot machines work best when they head to their home town of Vegas. We are not saying that Big Vegas mobile slot is particularly pretty (because it isn’t) or that it sounds great (mostly generic), but what it does do well is bring anticipation on every spin and that little knot in your stomach when you think you might just win big.

Two things will keep you on your toes; the wild directional symbol and the free spins bonus games.

The crazy wild symbol on Big Vegas slot

There’s a standard wild symbol when playing this Big Vegas slot game. Then there’s the directional wild symbol. This little beauty shows up on reels 2 or 4 and has a little wheel of fortune attached to it which spin. The direction it lands on will then replace the symbols on the screen in that direction into wilds.

That’s left, right, up, down, diagonally… a whole row of beautiful wilds.

During the base game these are fun at best. During the free spins it’s when it gets interesting.

The wild crazy free spin bonus games

Yes you ‘only’ get 5 free games with a 3x multiplier when you catch this mobile slots bonus feature. It doesn’t sound like a lot, because it isn’t. However, bearing in mind the Big Vegas slot machine is one of the Bally games with the best return to player rate (94.05%) and you have to wonder why so few free spins.

It’s that directional wilds isn’t it? This time round it arrives guaranteed on reel 3 on every spin. The wilds you get from that centre reels stay sticky on the screen for the whole of the bonus game.

Ever imagined getting a whole screen full of five of a kind wild symbols, but knowing it’s never going to happen? Big Vegas slot game genuinely feel like you could get close to that. Ok, generally you’re happy with a 50x your bet win when you walk out from the free spins, but we know it’s possible to hit 200x to 500x your bet on this feature.

Just watch your budget on this mobile slot machine. Much like the city of sin itself, it’s not always generous with it’s best feature, and you’ll need the free spins in order to get a hope of a big win.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: You get your standard wild symbol (a blue wild in big lights), replacing all other symbols on the screen except the directional wild and the free spin symbol.

Directional Wilds: Sitting on a roulette wheel, this wild symbol shows up on reels 2 and 4 where the little green arrow will determine your luck. If it points left, all the symbols to it's left will turn wild. If it points right, all the symbol to it's right will turn wild to the edge of the reels. Up, down, diagonal... spins, spin, spin... where will the arrow land?

The biggest disappointment is when it lands and points to the wall of the slot machine (ie. if the symbol is pointing downwards, but you're on the third symbol down of the reel), and you get nothing.

The direction wild itself also turns wild, so you always at least get one symbol, but usually more.

Scatters & Free Spins: 3 free games lounge symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 will trigger 5 free games with a 3x multiplier. Pretty sweet hey? But you can't re-trigger them, so you have to hope to get the most out of those five rounds.

Here the directional wilds only appear on reel three and produces sticky wilds in the direction the arrow is pointing. These remain on the screen for the remainder of the game, allowing for some decent cash prizes to be won.


Closing thoughts

In terms of graphics and theme, Big Vegas mobile slot is pretty basic. The big flashing lights of vegas, this game hasn't got.

What it does have is the big highs and lows you get as you spin the wheels and hope for a screen full of wilds. Or at least, a few 5 of a kind Vegas style wins.
