Set against a neon backdrop, you’ll see poker chips, dice, single, double and treble bar, bells, diamonds and lucky 7s spinning around the reels. The best paying symbol is Richie who’ll get you 2.5, 6 or 20 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination. As well as a standard wild, there’s also an expanding wild that can fill the whole of the reel whenever it appears in the top position of a reel.
On any base game spin, you could see the Wheel of Chance symbol appear on the middle reel. Every time 1 hits, you’ll trigger the Wheel of Chance feature and get a spin of the wheel which will award 1 of the following prizes depending on where the pointer lands:
- Cash Prize
- 3 Extra Wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4
- 2 Wild Reels
- Free Spins
If you land on a Free Spins segment, you’ll enter the Free Spins feature with 6 free spins. The Wheel of Chance will be active on each free spin. As well as the usual prizes, you can also progress to an upgraded VIP Wheel. This also adds 1 extra free spin to your total.
The number of wilds and expanding wilds on offer increase when you spin the VIP Wheel. You can upgrade again here to the High Rollers Wheel. As you’d expect, the awards here increase again. The cash awards are higher and the potential number of wilds and wild reels from each free spin also rise. If you make it to the High Rollers Reel, you’ll also receive 3 extra free spins.
Also joining the action in the free spins is the Bonus Richie symbol. This triggers a jackpot prize of 2,000 times your stake if you manage to land 5 of them on the same spin.
This trip to Vegas isn’t as outlandish as some similarly themed slot games. The understated design is nicely done, backed by a jazzy soundtrack that works rather well. The gameplay here is straightforward enough. The Wheel of Chance feature can deliver some good action though, especially if you manage to get an early upgrade during the free spins round.
You’ll see crazier trips to Sin City. With its classy design and range of extras, we’re happy enough to join Richie In Vegas though. I would also try other Iron Dog Studio slot games like Blood Queen and Vikings Wilds which are better in my opinion.
