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, despite having the popular cascading wins mechanic employed by other popular slots such as Gonzo's Quest from Net Entertainment. Cascading wins means that when you spin up a winning payline, the winning symbols are held while all other non-winning symbols are removed from the reels. The winners fall to the bottom of their reels and new symbols cascade down from the top of the reels to fill the empty spaces, which gives you a chance to win again. The cascading keeps happening so long as you get at least one new symbol matching your other winners. In this way you can end up filling the reels with one symbol for some mega wins.
There is a free spins round on offer in Neon Life, and it is triggered by landing five or more scatter symbols on one spin. During the free spins round you can increase a win multiplier up to a maximum of 5x your initial wager by cascading wins. I didn't really have much luck with the free round though, 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 looks like the developer did the bare minimum to crank out a new game, and despite the cascading wins feature it isn't much fun to play. Of course your opinion may vary, so let me know in the comments section below.
