Step into the fast lane and a life of fast cars, gold bars, and untold riches with Spin City Lux, a video slot created by Gong Gaming. This 5×3 slot has an RTP of 96.9% and 20 fixed paylines.
Choose Your Hero
Spin City Lux has three different characters you can play as, and whichever one you choose becomes the scatter symbol. The heroes don’t seem to have any effect on gameplay, they just change the scatter symbol and resulting win animations.
Anyway, you can be the guy with the cell phone, the blonde girl, or the dude with a drink and the exposed chest. And if you get tired of your hero then you can change it in between spins.
See How the Other Half Live
All of the symbols are representative of the lives of the super-rich. The most valuable are the luxury cars, followed by the gold bars, then the diamonds, then the briefcase of cash, with the roulette wheel and the dice coming in last.
Aside from the symbols, you have the scatter, which is also your hero. Scatters can pay from any position on the reel. There is a golden wild, which can substitute for any symbol except for a scatter or a bonus.
Now the bonus is where things get really interesting. Bonuses only land on reels 1 and 5, and it takes two to trigger the free spins round. Once you trigger the free spins, you get to pick a car, and depending on what car you pick you will get either 5, 7, 8, or 12 free spins.
You then get to select an item and depending on what item you pick, you will get either x2, x3, x5, or x10 multiplier. And during the free spins, each bonus symbol gives you an extra free spin.
As if that wasn’t enough, there is another cool feature called royal league. Royal league can randomly trigger at any time, and when it does you are brought to 7×7 grind. You spin the dice and depending on where you land you get paid one of four cash prizes.
Graphics and Sound
Spin City has some pretty cool graphical effects, like the coins falling from the sky after you win a big cash prize or the glittering lights around winning squares.
The symbols and background imagery are pretty well designed also, and the music is easy on the ears. The whole lifestyle of the rich theme is really well suited to a video slot because after all isn’t that why people gamble, because they want to be rich?
No question about it, Spin City Lux is a neat little slot. The ability to choose your hero is cool, although it would be even better if it impacted the gameplay somehow, like if each hero had their own bonus game.
That being said, the gameplay is pretty decent also. The multiplier aspect to the bonus rounds is nice and it seems like it isn’t that hard to trigger some extra free spins. And the graphics are pretty sweet.
Honestly, this is just a very well-conceived and executed video slot, and if this is the sort of quality we’re going to be seeing from Gong Gaming then we are excited to see what the future will bring.
