Time to head to sin city, where the dames are hot, the streets are dark, and pretty much anything can happen in this La Rouge mobile slot.
It’s hard not to love this La Rouge slot by Old Skool studios at first glance; much like the killer dame in any film noir, she looks captivating and enticing.
Sure, this is all a black and white world, but unlike Silent Movies by IGT which felt drab, this pops with the occasional colour red and helps bring the world alive.
Any good film noir starts with the damsel in distress who ends up being the evil-doer, and this La Rouge phone slot is no different.
Mostly because nothing much happens over these 20 paylines other than the occasional wild symbol to spice up the wins – but even they are on the lower end of the scale.
So much so, you do end up using the gamble feature more often than not, which is wonderfully beautiful, as you guess whether the lady in question is wearing red or black.
The search for the truth can be long and boring, and the truth is that you’ll have to go through a lot of base game spins to get to the bonus features.
The click me bonus is, once again, beautiful but without much substance.
The La Rouge free spins, on the other hand up the stake, giving you the potential for up to 10x multiplier on all wins… though mostly you end up with 3x or 4x.
It was when we realised we were getting excited about 10x your bet wins that we realised that, for all its beauty, we won’t be coming back to this casino game.
The wins you get in the free spins should just be what you can get in the base game, yet you are so starved of riches at the time it can feel like enough. It isn’t.
The reason this is a two-star slot, rather than one, is because the potential for big wins does exist thanks to that 10x multiplier, but this starlet is more likely to take you to the cleaners.
You should head to Clue Spinning Detective slot to see what a real hard-boiled policeman can truly achieve.

Wilds: The blonde is the wild symbol and she substitutes for all symbols except the bonus and scatters.
Scatters and Free Spins: The film noir detective is the scatter, and finding 3, 4 or 5 anywhere on the reels will give you 8, 12 or 20 free spins.
You get extra stacked wilds and a random multiplier of between 2x and 10x on all your wins.
Starlet Bonus: Three clipboard bonus symbols will see you invited to the kind of house that would make any starlet nervous.
Here you enter an elevator heading to one of the floors where you'll win cash prizes, or step to the next level.
There are 5 levels in total, but you rarely get more than 5x to 10x your bet.
This Sin City inspired slot machine certainly looks the part - rarely have we been so drawn in just from the loading screen.
It's a shame that the mechanics don't support the theme of this La Rouge slot on mobile, with a fairly boring base game and click me bonus often keeping you in the red.
There is hope that you may yet walk away having beaten the lady in red thanks to the free spins and that potential 10x multiplier.
But we won't be the ones to try, instead preferring to play on Old Skool studios far better Jewel Quest Riches slot.
