Think you know Avalanching reels? You’ve not seen anything yet as this Neon Life mobile slot turns things around and helps you create even more wins than you think.
Playtech studios are really good at finding a way to change one small feature so it still feels familiar, but somehow makes it fresh and new again.
Take the Collapsing Reels in this Neon Life slot. Whereas games like Gonzo’s Quest by NetEnt or Pixies of the Forest by IGT remove winning symbols from the reels, and avalanche more from above, Neon Life removes the losing symbols.
You then get more symbols falling from above as you try and catch more winning symbols, to create a bigger win. It’s a strange mix of sticky wins and avalanching reels – which, if we are honest, we loved.
The full title of this Playtech slot review is Welcome to Fabulous Neon Life. Because… Vegas has lots of neon signs?
From Pink Flamingos to saucy dancers, cars, cocktails and police badges, this has a colourful easy appeal to make this feel a little cheap but somehow charming.
It probably won’t catch your eye amongst the thousands of mobile slot games at most casinos, but if you find it, check it out.
We’ve had great wins in the base game, giving us 40x our bet often enough that we didn’t feel cheated after playing this Neon Life game.
However, the free bonus games can be incredibly frustrating, namely because unlike Gonzo where every avalanche increases the multiplier, here every 2 avalanche increases the multiplier.
Which makes getting that top 5x multiplier really hard to catch. Like almost impossible. It also means you can walk away from the Neon Life free spins with absolutely no wins as we’ve played 7 spins more often than the top 25.
The potential is there, however. And we can’t say we didn’t have fun with these odd avalanching sticky win feature that made us feel like every win could potentially grow to the size of Vegas.

Wilds: The Wild Police Sign will substitute for all symbols except the scatter. It only appears on reel 2, 3 and 4.
Collapsing Reels: Any win on a reel will trigger a collapse. Any non-winning symbols will explode and disappear, leaving behind only winning symbols and catching any new symbols.
If new symbols help continue the win or add to one of the wins, you get another collapse. If the symbols add nothing, then you have to spin again to try again.
Scatters and Free Spins: You collect scatters using the collapsing reels feature. 5 or more will trigger up to 25 free games.
However, during the free spin, every 2 sequential collapses will increase the multiplier, from 1x, to 2x, to 3x, to 5x.
If the collapses stop, the multiplier goes back down to 0.
The theme may be nothing to shout about, but it's fun enough and catches the eye, so you feel like you might be on a cheap stripper club in Vegas instead of at home on your couch.
And that's an improvement... right?
Neon Life slot on mobile is a 243 ways to win game with collapsing reels that keep every win on screen and gives you more symbols tumble from above. The free spins are frequent and the scatters surprisingly easy to catch.
It doesn't always pay out that well, namely because it's hard to get that 5x multiplier during the bonus games, but it's fun to try.
