Vegas Rush slot REVIEW
Vegas Rush ReviewThe Megaclusters engine has admittedly not come anywhere close to being as successful as Big Time Gaming’s insanely popular Megaways engine. Still, in our view at least, the Megaclusters engine is far more satisfying to behold, and it’s a bit puzzling that it hasn’t taken off more than it has. Either way, it takes center stage in Vegas Rush, which is basically a combination of two previous Big Time Gaming releases.
You get Reaction Wins that turn symbols into 4 smaller symbols, and after that the reactions continue as the smaller symbols are replaced by new small symbols. Each consecutive reaction takes you up the modifier Megatrail, and this is also how you trigger the bonus round. It comes with an upgraded Megatrail, and you can win up to a solid 47,200x your stake. We still think this engine is underrated, but perhaps less generic visuals would be a good idea next time.

Vegas Rush Slot Features
You win by landing 5 to 25+ matching symbols in a cluster anywhere on the grid, the latter pays between 30 and 50 x your stake. Winning symbols are removed via the Reactions mechanic, and each removed symbol is replaced by 4 smaller symbols.
If the smaller symbols form a cluster win, they are removed and replaced by new small symbols like with the regular cascading mechanic. The 5x5 grid can contain up to 100 symbols at best, thanks to the Megaclusters feature.
Landing consecutive reaction wins also means that you progress up the Megatrail Bonus Ladder seen on the left-hand side. Wild symbols can help you out in that regard, as they step in for pay symbols to help complete and/or improve cluster wins regardless of their size. The Megatrail awards the following modifiers:
Wilds - up to 10 wilds are added randomly across the grid.
Multiplier Wilds - wilds with a multiplier up to x5 is added randomly across the grid.
Symbol Explosions - all instances of a chosen symbol are removed.
Symbol Subdivide - all big instances of a chosen symbol turn into 3 smaller versions of it.
Symbol to Wild - all instances of a chosen symbol turn wild.
Mega Wild - adds 4 wilds in a cluster to the grid (or 2 in the bonus round).
Win Multiplier - gives you a win multiplier up to x10 (but it will not boost the bonus prize).
Explosion - removes symbols in different shapes via up to 3 explosions.
Symbol Duplication - adds 5 instances of a chosen symbol to a row or column.
50:50 - removes all symbols from 50 % of the grid (either the top, bottom, left, or right part).
Max Megaclusters - replaces all big symbols by 4 smaller versions of them.
Bonus Prize - reach the top of the trail to win 1,000x your stake in the base game.
The Bonus Round is secured once you reach the 7th rung on the Megatrail during base game play, and this gives you 6 free spins. The Megatrail is upgraded in the bonus round, and it comes with 12 rungs and a top rung prize of 2,000x your stake. You get +3 extra spins when you reach rung 6, and you can win up to a total of 99 free spins if you’re lucky. Non-UK players, and anyone eligible, can purchase the bonus round for 60x the stake.

You can’t really blame the crafty and innovative Aussies ‘down under’ at the Big Time Gaming headquarters for taking a short-cut once in a while. In Vegas Rush, they have clearly “copy-pasted” the visuals from Vegas Rush into the template for Millionaire Rush, both of which are solid installments in and of themselves. The result is not their most creative effort, of course, but Vegas Rush is still a highly playable, engaging, and potentially lucrative release.
Speaking of, you can win up to 33,050x your stake in the base game, and up to 47,200x your stake in the bonus round. The Megatrail system makes the base game far more engaging than what you get in the average release, and even more so in the bonus round. The Megaclusters mechanic is a joy to behold as usual, and lengthy cascades are highly satisfying even purely from an aesthetic viewpoint. The combination of Megatrail and Megaclusters is a winner the way we see it, but visually Vegas Rush can come across as a bit cold, impersonal, and generic.
