One of the latest releases from Old Skool Studios performs on the Microgaming platform and brings the spirit of bohemian nights. The slot is called La Rouge and it will take you back in time when private detectives and smoky jazz clubs were the most popular social entertainment. Old Skool Studios converted it into an exciting gaming experience, perfectly depicting scenes from the famous Frank Miller’s novel Sin City. All fans of old black and white noir movies will be instantly captured by its stunning graphics and appealing slot background, as five reels are housed in a dark street with a cigarette shop and a cocktail lounge while a private investigator observes every move you make. We hope you don’t have any dark secrets.
La Rouge is played at 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines, from $0.20 per spin. High rollers probably won’t find appealing the max wager of $10, but to fix the things, the slot offers the Gamble feature, which gives players the opportunity to double up the winning amount multiple times. The feature becomes available after every winning spin during the base game and one should guess the right colour of the diva’s dress. As long as you keep guessing right, the gamble feature is active.
High value symbols are perfectly complementing the theme and include vinyl records, bunches of red roses, retro landline telephones and microphones followed by four lower value card suit symbols. Wild symbol is Marilyn Monroe alike movie diva and substitutes for all symbols in the game apart from the Scatter and Bonus symbols. Wild can also make winning combos on its own. The private detective is investigating the reels as Scatter and triggers the Free spins feature if three, four or five appear anywhere on the reels. Depending on the number of symbols, players get 8, 12 or 20 free spins packed with a randomly selected multiplier and stacked Wilds. Land more Scatters for more free spins. As well as Wild, Scatter also can form winning combos on its own.
The main appeal of the game is definitely Starlite Bonus triggered by three Bonus symbols on the reels 1, 3 and 5. The bonus game is multi-staged and offers 5 levels – complete the first to move to the second, and so on. It comes with cash prizes, chance to win all rewards and advances to the next level, with a possibility to collect your prizes and leave the bonus round at any time.
La Rouge is a medium variance slot, with the RTP of 95,02% and medium to high volatility, meaning that payouts are not that frequent. On the other hand, those that you manage to land are pretty high to keep your balance positive. With a catching atmosphere and a jazzy soundtrack, La Rouge is definitely a slot you’ll enjoy playing as it’ll create the feeling like you’re starring in an old movie, with great features adding a piece of entertainment to the whole experience. Old Skool Studios and Microgaming really know how to seduce the players.
