Invading Vegas Review
It's finally happened - aliens have crash-landed on Earth. After researching the planet, the aliens decided that Las Vegas was the location that they needed to hit up as it was the most confusing to them.
Thankfully, these aliens are not too violent and just want to see some funky wins. This is all showcased in Play'n GO's Invading Vegas which plays on 5-reels with 20 paylines.
Alongside a b-movie tone, there are respins, free spins and sticky wilds leading to some memorable moments. If you have ever wondered what alien life is really like, then be sure to head on over to Invading Vegas.
With the design, we were instantly reminded of Mars Attacks! The overall design is quite tacky but intentionally so. Most of the characters look familiar from the film with stereotypes such as the Elvis impersonator and a cowboy.
As the name suggests, this slot is set in Las Vegas with all the major attractions in the distance with a crashed spaceship at the front. One cool detail is that one of the casinos is called 'Charlotte's Casino' which is a reference to Charlotte Miliziano, the Head of Games at Play'n GO.
Ultimately, this slot delivers a zany, b-movie twist on the alien slot genre and adds a much-needed camp aesthetic. In terms of the design, we were absolutely blown away and found it charming.
This slot contains so much throughout the gameplay with respins, sticky wilds and free spins. Whilst this may not seem like much, it's consistent throughout the game so you are bound to see something during spins.
We were constantly on the edge of our seats with the gameplay and found some of the win animations hilarious. Invading Vegas may not be the next evolution in online slots but it's certainly fun to play!
As for the win potential, this is where we began to feel a little disappointed. The RTP is above average at 96% but it's nothing too special. Alongside this, there is a maximum win of about 1,000x the stake which is a little disappointing.
For a modern slot, we'd expect something between 5,000x to 10,000x the stake - so to see it this low is a little off-putting. However, it's worth pointing out that this is a medium volatility slot meaning there will be a mixture of small frequent wins and massive wins less often - so the lower maximum win makes a little more sense.
Invading Vegas is wacky and absolutely insane - and we loved it. This is exactly what we wanted from Play'n GO in terms of the tone, general design and overall gameplay. The only area we disliked was the win potential.
Sadly, we expect this low maximum win to put off some people as you'd expect a slot like this to contain some massive wins - it is set in Vegas after all! Despite this, we still recommend giving this slot a spin as we've never seen anything like it!
