Casino Night: Slot Overview

Some say that casinos don’t have clocks or windows, so gamblers are unable to keep track of how long they’ve been occupied at the slot machines or the tables. Can’t players just as easily check their phone or watch to find out what the time is? Either way, it appears a spot of after-hours gambling is on the cards in this instance as we take on software provider NetEnt‘s online slot Casino Night. For this game, players enter a world populated by questionable characters to try their luck in a faux-casino setting using rather unique gaming methods.

Casino Night does its best to make users feel like they’ve made their way into a betting establishment and are laying down wagers and having an actual live bet. With some imagination, of course, but Casino Night’s sights and sounds do a neat job of putting players into the picture. The game presents a view of a betting table covered in chips, a cigar, and a bottle of booze, and greeting players at the home screen are four dubious characters displayed on a set of playing cards. It’s actually quite nicely executed, and Casino Night does well to pull the imagination into its smoky, ‘take a punt, why don’t ya punk’ world.

In the middle of the table is Casino Night’s gaming area, consisting of 5 columns, each possessing 3 positions, but no bet lines or ways to win to speak of. Winning is conducted in an unusually different yet simple way. Basically, on each spin, 1 or more reels can appear golden. On the reels, land valueless symbols or chips that display multipliers of the bet. All paying symbols that land within a golden reel award the value they possess. Special symbols may also land – more on these next. A medium-high volatile slot, Casino Night takes bets of 10 c to $/€40, and the max RTP comes in at 96.04%.

Casino Night: Slot Features

Casino Night isn’t solely focused on landing casino chips in golden reels to collect cash. It also has special symbols and a free spins bonus round.

Special Symbols

A group of 4 unique special symbols may land on the reels at any time. Only one special symbol may land per reel during the main game – and not on a golden reel.

  • Blue – collects 1 random chip in view, awarding its value.
  • Green – collects 3 random chips in view and awards their values.
  • Purple – collects all visible chips and awards their value.
  • Gold – collects all visible chips and awards their value x2.

Free Spins

Landing a scatter symbol on a golden reel in the base game awards 3 free spins. Scatter symbols do not appear in free spins. Special symbols turn into Black Chips after they reveal their prize. When a new chip or special symbol lands on the reels, they lock and reset the spin counter to 3. The feature ends either when the counter reaches zero or the screen is filled with chips. Filling all the reels with locked chips doubles their prize and ends the feature.

Casino Night: Slot Verdict

From the moment Casino Night slinked up on the screen, its characters, crafted game world, and sass produced an infectious groove which was easy to be carried along with. Slots that try to make players feel like they’re in an actual gambling establishment are nothing new, but are they getting better as technology improves? Whatever the answer, NetEnt has made a fun one for Casino Night. Maybe not virtual reality, 5D, questioning which experience you’re currently locked into is the real world or not, but Casino Night’s game environment is an entertaining place to drop yourself in.

Casino Night’s mechanics only deepened the experience too, which was a nice surprise, and chips landing on a table had a live-casino feel to them in their own right. A simple set of rules ensures the game flows along relatively uncluttered as you sit back to watch golden reels appear with (hopefully) casino chips on them to scoop their values. The special symbols aren’t wildly complicated; it might not have hurt if they had a little bit more sophistication to them, maybe in the free spins section, perhaps, just to mix things up a bit. But no biggie, the special symbols mix things up to a degree as they are, helping Casino Night slink by.

Another positive shock was seeing that while Casino Night’s calculated max multiplier is 2,500, its win cap is a whopping 10,000 times the bet. Even if you don’t manage to crack that amount, and realistically, most gamblers probably aren’t going to, Casino Night’s unique gameplay and its putting players in the scene presentation combine to make it a night to remember.
