Rock Vegas Introduction 

Prehistoric times are known for many things, such as savage beasts, mysterious jungles and cave people, but... gambling? Pragmatic Play clearly seems to think so as it presents Rock Vegas, a 5-reel, 3-row slot topped with an ancient version of the iconic "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign. That said Rock Vegas is clearly not a place for neon and glitz, not when it is inhabited by mammoths, dinosaurs and sabre-toothed tigers! Good thing the club-wielding caveman appears ready to keep things in check, right? Prehistoric fun aside, Rock Vegas also debuts a new game mechanic dubbed Mega Hold and Spin. As the name suggests, this is indeed a hold and spin-style round with a difference. It takes place on a big 10x10 grid, and the aim is to land as multi-coloured rocks as possible. Land a cluster of matching rocks in a 2x2 or 3x3 formation and these will turn into a big rock complete with a prize multiplier! Rocks can also land on the grid with a key on top. Keys are used to move on the trail, and can unlock round multipliers. Of course this is not all one can find in Rock Vegas, so let us head towards this fabulous, prehistoric time and find out what else it has in store!

Rock Vegas Game Features

Rock Vegas is a slot featuring 5 reels, 3 rows and a total of 20 paylines formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels. Paylines always start from reel 1, moving from left to right. Making these paylines are 9 paying symbols. Of these 4 are the high pays, namely the caveman, sabre-toothed tiger, dinosaur and mammoth, while the A, K, Q, J and 10 card royals make the low pays. There is no wild, but all wilds hold a big boulder that acts as the game's scatter. This can either hit naturally or appear randomly at the end of the spin. Whichever way it gets on the reels, landing 3 of these triggers the game's bonus feature, the Mega Hold and Spin round. The minimum bet is € 0.2 and the max. bet is € 24.

Rock Vegas Free Spins and Bonuses 

Landing 3 or more boulder scatters triggers the Mega Hold and Spin feature. This replaces the regular reels with a 10-reel, 10-row setup that holds only rock symbols and empty spaces. There are 5 different rocks in blue, green, yellow, pink and orange. If the round was triggered with 3 scatters then all these rocks will be present on the reels. Triggering the round with 4 scatters puts only orange, pink, yellow and green rocks on the grid, while 5 scatters bring only orange, pink and golden rocks. Like a traditional hold and spin-style round, you get 3 respins with which to land as many rocks on the grid as possible, with landing at least 1 rock resetting the respin counter back to 3. The round continues until you either runout of respins or all positions on the grid are filled with rocks. 

That said, the Mega Hold and Spin round has a few twists of its own. First, landing a cluster of matching rocks in a 2x2 or 3x3 formation has them turn into a big rock complete with a random multiplier of 2-500x that will be applied to the values of all rocks making that cluster. Any respin might also see the addition of random rocks to the grid through a fire animation. Finally, rocks can land with a key. Keys are collected in the on-screen trail, and if enough are landed you can open a chest that can award you one of these random prizes:

  • A random rock has its value multiplied by a random multiplier ranging from 0.5x to 500x. This result is collected immediately. 
  • A random number of keys ranging from 4 to 10 is added to the trail. 
  • A random 2-100x multiplier will be added to the total payout at the end of the round. If more than one of these multipliers are collected during the round then these will be multiplied between themselves. 
  • One retrigger. 

If enough keys are collected to reach the Mystery Multiplier then a random number from 2x to 100x is collected to multiply the round multiplier. If the entire grid is filled with rocks then the round is retriggered, with the grid cleared and 3 respins given. Retriggers can be accumulated if collected through the key trail, and played out in order. The maximum win that can be earned through this round can reach up to 10,000x the bet. If this total is reached then the round ends immediately, with the win awarded and any remaining respins forfeited. 

Rock Vegas Payouts 

The caveman is the highest paying of the regular symbols, with a full payline worth up to 37.5x the bet. The sabre-toothed tiger and dinosaur follow at up to 25x the bet, while the mammoth can bring up to 12.5x. The A and K are worth up to 6.25x the bet and the Q, J and 10 3.75x. As for the rocks found on the reels during the Mega Hold and Spin round, an orange rock can earn you 1x the bet, a pink rock 0.6x, a yellow rock 0.4x, a green rock 0.2x and a blue rock 0.1x. 

Rock Vegas Graphics and Sound 

The Rock Vegas slot is dominated by the caveman on the left-hand side of the screen. This friendly animated character looks on as you spin the reels, clearly waiting for you to get a big win or trigger the bonus round. He also appears on the reels as one of the high pays, together with the painted animal creatures. All of these are big and detailed, and fit nicely on the simply yet effectively designed reels. These are built in a stone frame that comes complete with a pair of flame torches, as well as the "Fabulous Rock Vegas" sign found right on top. A lively brass band tune plays as you spin the reels, and in the background you can also listen to the sounds of the birds and other creatures inhabiting the dense prehistoric jungle that makes the game's setting.
