A superior gaming experience awaits on the slot from Cayetano Gaming. We are now able to see the results after the developer integrated its games into the Red Tiger Gaming platform. It not only includes the clean game layout but also gave them access to the game engines.
Classy Vegas is based on the multi-way engine that powers the Laser Fruit slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Tumbling reels and consecutive wins can increase the game window from a 5×3 layout up to a 10×6 format with up to 7,965,647 ways to win.
A new mechanic called Quattro symbols is dividing a single symbol position into four symbols after a win. And that’s not all, progressive win multipliers of up to x12 in the free spins can lead to wins of up to 1,000x your bet on a single spin.
Classy Vegas is a video slot with initially five reels and three rows. Wins are paid for a minimum of three connecting symbols from left to right. The number of ways to win ranges from 2,486 to 7,965,647. You can spin the reels on mobile or desktop from 0.20 to 500 credits. The RTP of this high variance game is set at 95.92%.
A scene from the Las Vegas strip in the 1960s together with typical automobiles from the era serves as the fitting background to a semi-translucent game window in super HD. On the right is the display for the progressive win multiplier. The pay symbols are all held in neon colours while a piano soundtrack adds a pleasant audio to the reel noises.
The pay symbols are a homage to the good old Las Vegas slot machines. They start at the low end with the card royals 10 to A and continue with bars, cocktail glasses, bells, horseshoes, sevens and diamonds. A flashy wild symbol is the most valuable on the slot. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 1.2x to 7.5x your stake. However, with the variable number of ways to win it is possible to hit ten matching symbols, paying between 5x and 50x your bet. The scatter is the slot logo, appearing on reel three only.
At the start of each round, 15 symbols tumble from the top onto the reels. Wins on Classy Vegas are paid for connecting symbols starting from the left. The connection can be vertically, horizontally or diagonally as long as they touch at least on the corners. For example, having three matching symbols landing stacked on reel one will count as a three of a kind.
Any winning combination will explode after the win is paid to make room for new symbols to drop in place. Hitting a win again will also start to increase the win multiplier. The spin sequence continues as long as new wins occur after a tumble.
In the base game, the win multiplier can be x1, x2, x3, x4 and x5. Any subsequent wins after the fifth tumble will be multiplied by x5. In the free spins, the multiplier will start also at x1 but progress to x3, x6, x9 and x12 to provide more potential to hit big wins. The multiplier will reset to x1 at the end of a spin sequence.
All clear until now, isn’t it – connecting symbols, tumbling reels and progressive multipliers – straightforward and nothing that we have not seen before. But there’s something new and that can have a huge impact. Cayetano named the secret behind the variable reels, rows and ways to win Quattro Symbol.
So how does it work? In the base game, you will need to hit a win with a wild symbol. The combo will explode as usual but every freed up reel position will split into four symbols, which explains the name Quattro Symbol. Instead of just one, you will have now four symbols tumbling into the empty spot, significantly increasing the chance to hit another win and thus keeping the spin sequence going. Each reel position can split once, which can lead to a maximum of 10 reels, 6 rows and 7,965,647 ways to win.
Hitting a slot logo scatter anywhere on reel three in a spin sequence will trigger the feature. The symbol will transform into a wheel, displaying a number of segments with three to nine free spins. You get one spin on the wheel and the number stopping in view will be your amount of free spins, which cannot be retriggered.
During the free spins the progressive multiplier is increasing from x1 to x3, x6, x9 and x12. Any subsequent win after the fifth tumble will be multiplied by x12. And here’s comes the final kicker. The Quattro Symbol is now triggering on any win, giving you even more chances to hit a tumble streak with consecutive wins.
It is always a pleasure to see a new pay mechanic as it showcases the creativity of a developer. Producing out of the box games with 10 or 20 pay lines is routine today but getting a game window to expand to over 7 million ways to win is a maths marvel. Cayetano took the Laser Fruit game engine, that actually goes over 90 million ways, to a new level with a totally flexible reel set and a novel way of awarding wins. Highly recommended to give Classy Vegas a few spins when it is released network-wide.
