Ash Gaming is trying to get you to come to the big time with their new Neon Reels slot, which takes place in Sin City and pitches a classic Las Vegas theme complete with neon signs. Unfortunately, what we're handed is a bland game that really doesn't do anything particularly well.
Neon Life is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot that takes place in old Las Vegas, and includes card symbols like Jack, Queen, King, and Ace, as well as fluorescent flamingos, martini glasses, cars, legs, and poker hand. The game's features include cascading wins, sticky wins, and free spins when you land five or more scatters on the reels.
The game is a pretty lame affair when you get down to it, as the presentation and feature set aren't fantastic. The game just seems a bit lame when compared to the competition like Jack Hammer from Net Ent, as the game has the same idea in mind, but just doesn't execute nearly as well. I ended up scoring some huge wins on this game, including filling up the reels with all of the long legs, and ended up taking home a mega win of more than $6,000. Even while this was playing out though, I was already looking forward to the next slot that I'd get to review, as this game was boring. Making matters worse was the fact that I couldn't click out as the game tabulated the win on the reels. Watching the game ring up $6,000 in winnings $25 at a time is a bit annoying.
Even getting the free spins bonus round is a chore, as you have to watch the scatter symbols slowly turn before they trigger the game. I didn't really have any luck with the round, and found myself quickly looking to just close the game out and move on with my life.
I can't say that I recommend this game to you. It's boring, looks shoddy, and some of the mechanics inside are also shoddy. Of course your opinion may vary, so let me know in the comments section below.
