Betsoft is known for using innovative ideas and latest designs for their video slot games. As expected, this slot game developer has used the popular Hollywood comedy trilogy “The Hangover” as the storyline for Weekend In Vegas slot machine. As in the movie, the subject of this game also deals with a group of friends visiting Las Vegas for a weekend full of debauchery and fun.
The only difference is that these three friends known as Balanced Ben, Loony Larry and Cautious Chris are there to provide some of the biggest payouts to the players of this game. As one can guess from their names, all three of these friends have their unique personalities and help in providing some unique bonus features during the bonus game.
The other unique thing about this slot machine is the absence of the pay-lines. Instead of pay-line, Weekend In Vegas features 243 ways to win. Payouts of this five reels slot are made by landing winning combinations on the adjacent reels. The payouts are considered only for the symbols landed from left to right hand side of the reels.
The reels are in a 5×3 format. The background of the reels comprises of a night scene from Las Vegas, with skyscrapers and casinos with neon signs forming the horizon. You can also find all of the three friends at different position over the screen. While the Loony Larry is sitting atop a trailer trying to have a suntan at night, the other two can be seen flanking both sides of the reels. As expected from a product of Betsoft, the graphics of this game are state of the art three dimensional animated characters. The background music is in the form of a jazz tune played by an orchestra with intermittent sounds coming from the street.
